That brought on a 2-minute drill, the first play of which was dominated by a post-play dustup. Kalafitoni Pole broke through and sacked Lobbestael, who seemed to take exception with something said by Dan Spitz. The two squared off with Lobbestael taking down the defensive lineman with a perfect form tackle. Others got involved and the two were separated.
Somebody find me video of this. I will give you anything you want if you can find me video of Lobbestael form tackling a defensive lineman.
Practice No. 7 Recap - First and Crimson
It seems as if every day I have something to say about freshman running back Rickey Galvin, and he shined again when the twos lined up. Galvin broke off a 20-yard run and was stopped just short of the goal line. The coaches moved the ball back to the five and declared it third down for situational purposes, and quarterback Marshall Lobbestael hit running back Marcus Richmond for the touchdown.
After the jump, more links and video interviews with Paul Wulff and Skylar Stormo.

College football tickets: Pac-10 is the conference of bargains for fans | OregonLive.com
The Pac-10 has the lowest average 2010 individual ticket price to a low-demand football game -- $27.60 -- among the big six Bowl Championship Series conferences and Notre Dame, according to a survey by The Oregonian. You'd pay more than four dollars more on average to get into a game in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and nearly $20 more to get into the lowest-demand Big Ten games.
Check out the table at the bottom. In 2008, tickets to a UW game cost $30 for a high demand game. Now that there's more demand, that number has more than doubled.
