Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets kickoff returner Orwin Smith had an embarrassing mishap during Saturday's college football game against the Miami Hurricanes when his indecision on whether to run a kickoff out of the end zone resulted in a safety and two points for Miami.
In the first quarter, Smith was about to run the kickoff out of the end zone when his teammate told him to stay there and simply down the ball. However, as Smith was at the end zone line and already had some forward momentum going, his hand touched just outside the end zone before he kneeled down, resulting in the safety. Looks like the Georgia Tech special teamers will be spending some extra practice time on kickoffs this week.
Orwin Smith made up for his goof later by scoring a touchdown, but Miami defeated Georgia Tech 42-36.
