Breaking the internet one tweet at a time

The Arizona Wildcats defense came to play on Saturday against the Oregon State Beavers, and the lasting image from that game will be this hit William Parks delivered on Jordan Villamin.

The refs originally threw a flag for targeting, but picked it up after three of the refs came in and realized that the Parks hit was extremely legal.

"I thought the officials did a great job with that," Rich Rodriguez said after the game. "Three of them knew that he turned his shoulder and it wasn't targeting, and they got the call right, so I thought it was a good piece of officiating."

While he was on the ground for a pretty good chunk of time after the hit, Villamin did come back in the game in the second half.

And was also making jokes on Twitter after the game:

So at least we know that he's okay, and that Will Parks hit him cleanly and didn't leave any long-term health problems with him after it.

By the way, Marquis Flowers really enjoyed this hit. Probably more than a normal human being should:
