Florida State’s Matthew Thomas was called for targeting Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya. The Seminoles were penalized 15 yards. That hardly seems like a fair punishment considering the hit knocked a molar out of Kaaya’s mouth.
There’s pain and then there’s molar-losing pain. No one should have to experience the latter.
Kaaya was fortunate to have a good teammate to help him out in his time of need. Offensive tackle Sonny Odogwu picked up the tooth off the turf and it was eventually delivered to the sidelines.
We see a trip to the dentist in Kaaya’s future. That and a cringeworthy story to bust out at dinner parties for decades to come.
