Proof That Nearly-Decapitating Football Hits Happen At Any Level

If you missed Saturday's Appalachian State-Montana semifinal game in the playoffs of the FCS (aka the NCAA football division that has has figured out that tricky "playoff" thing; you hear that, @insidetheBCS?!), then not only did you miss out on a great game (in the snow!), but also what might have been the hit of the year in college football, at any level.

That is Montana's Keith Thompson, nearly removing Matt Cline's head from his body. My high school coach would call that a "toes-to-Jesus-hit." But I suppose hits like that should be expected in a stadium that sits at the mouth of HELLGATE CANYON (which is probably just a canyon, but still, it's got a pretty awesome name).
