That is Texas forward Gary Johnson heading right for the Lawrence Journal-World’s Nick Krug and me Saturday during the Big 12 Championship game won by Kansas. Associated Press photographer Charlie Riedel made the image which was an AP Top Pic of the day.
Laura from her high angle captured a series of images of the landing which wiped Krug out. You can see his legs up in the air and then his head popping up to the surface to assess damage. Johnson caught me with a forearm to the neck and landed on my left leg resulting in two small, mysterious scrapes as I rolled away from the impact with my cameras in hand. Nick and I were fine. Most importantly, no cameras were damaged in the filming of the crash landing.
