KSR’s Top 10 Plays of the 2015 Football Season: #6


The season didn’t end the way we wanted to, but we can still end the year on a high note by reliving the best moments from the 2015 football season.  The record may not have reflected much positive change, but these highlights might help.  #10, #9#8#7

Entering the football season, the only reason people knew C.J. Johnson’s name is because it made Jimmy Kimmel Live! The toilet humor helped the hype, but people didn’t expect to see much more from him.  Then came the “Poop Scoop.” 

After getting 30 tackles in consecutive games, the defensive tackle was beginning to make a name for himself.  Those games showed us his potential, but never accurately articulated his athleticism.  It came to the surface as the Wildcats were struggling against Tennessee.

The game was still tied at zero, but it felt like they were losing by two touchdowns.  The Vols were in the red zone and prepared to blow the game open, but before it got out of hand, the defense took a stand.  Marcus McWilson got to the quarterback, made the deflection and C.J. took care of the rest.  76 yards later he was in the end zone.

It won’t be the only time you see C.J. on this list.

    The start of the Drew Barker Era is my favorite by far!!! Will certainly updated my season tickets next year and will take the whole family! Love the hire today and the cleaning up of the roster. The two departing players already demonstrated they hadn’t bought in. Explains why they weren’t leaders on the field at any time.

    This play exemplifies how opportunistic our defense could be when they weren’t worn down by being on the field so much thanks to the offense’s repeated three-and-outs. They were statistically weak, yes, but there weren’t all that many defenses in the country that could have done much better in the position they were in.
