The excitement and disappointment of Jamarkus McFarland’s interception
One second Jamarkus McFarland was running. The next second he was falling and the next he was raised both fists and pounded the ground.
Just moments prior, McFarland had caught a Seth Doege pass that was tipped by OU’s R.J. Washington. McFarland ran the ball 13 yards and just as he was falling, the ball slipped from his right hand. Fumble. Tech recovered.
Had McFarland wanted to throw a three-year-old-like temper tantrum, many OU fans probably would have joined right along with the 6-foot-2, 288 pound defensive tackle. But J-Mac, as he’s referred to on the team, just kind of lay on his stomach with his eyes on the ground.
Defensive captain David King watched the whole thing. He even got in the mix trying to throw a block but it wasn’t enough.
“When J-Mac got it I was like Yes! I tried to go through a block but it didn’t work out to well,” King said. “Then I fell. I looked up and I was like ,Oh no J-Mac.”
