Was this the dirtiest hit of the year so far? You won't find any argument from us here. Watch as Marquel Wade of the Arkansas Razorbacks drills Vanderbilt Commodores punt returner Jonathan Krause before the ball even arrives -- with the crown of his helmet, no less. To make it even worse, he then bounded around gloating about it.
Yes, Wade was ejected for this (video via @cjzero):
The good news is Krause was able to make it to his feet and off the field without too much assistance. He was down on the field for a few moments while Wade hopped on the sidelines. The announcement of his ejection had Vandy's crowd cheering while he huffed and puffed a little bit. Coaches escorted him into the locker room.
Vandy football has gotten notably more intense for all parties involved this year, but this is clearly way, way too far.
