I mean. Yikes. Sometimes you’ve just got to get out of the way.

Iowa forward Tyler Cook, clearly frustrated at the prospect of the Hawkeyes losing at home to Penn State for the first time since 2001 (which happened), took off from outside the lane and laid the boom on Nittany Lions guard Shep Garner, who got whistled for the foul and will hopefully show better judgment next time a freight train is headed his way.

Bonus points to the Big Ten Network camera operator and production crew for immediately finding the bearded guy in the stands who delivered the exact appropriate reaction to the devastation he just witnessed.
