VIDEO: Oregon Lineman Executes 'Bear Hug' On USC Opponent

It won't ever rise to the level of fame enjoyed by Ron Cherry's "He was giving him the business" call, but it should at least top the monthly "False start, the entire offensive line" proclamation on the list of most beloved referee statements.

Here's video (via @jose3030) of famed NFL ref Ed Hochuli's son (yep!) hitting the Oregon Ducks with a 15-yard holding penalty for bear-hugging. The Hochuli family knows all about illegal use of biceps, so you can trust this one was applied fairly.
