Boise State DT Chase Hatada learned a very valuable lesson tonight: don’t launch yourself at a quarterback throwing the ball away like a dumbass.
As you can see below, New Mexico’s Lamar Jordan was just trying to get the football out of his hands on a blown play when big No. 93 came in and leveled him with a brutal shot near the head:
OUCHHHHH. And stay to the end to see Lamar Jordan trying to walk off the field. Scary. pic.twitter.com/vInuvgGEng

Somehow roughing the passer wasn’t called by the refs, but Hatada was eventually ejected for targeting after a review of the play.
Here’s the shot again:

Apparently Jordan is in “good spirits” in the locker room, whatever that means:
They said he was in locker room with family in good spirits. Wishing he was back on the field.
