There's nothing I like more than being right. And, there's nothing quite like predicting exactly what will happen. I direct you to the post below if you don't believe me. Within that purple box right after the top 10 things I love about Casey Dick you will see it... "When he comes in off the bench Friday afternoon in the Rock to lead a Razorback comeback for the ages - I told you so!"
Casey Dick threw a perfect strike on 4th and 1 to London Crawford with 21 seconds remaining to tie the game at 30-30. Alex Tejada's extra point was true and the Razorbacks completed a comeback for the ages at the Rock on Friday afternoon.
(Nice grab, London)
Enter Nathan Dick. N. Dick looks lights out the first few possessions of the game and leads the Razorbacks (along with some outstanding running by Dennis Johnson) to an early 14-3 lead.
Second quarter: All LSU as the Razorbacks go in a hole and end up trailing 23-14 at the half.
Third quarter: LSU opens up the second half with a TD to go up 30-14 with 13 minutes to go in the third.
Enter Casey Dick in his final game as an Arkansas Razorback. Dick's perfect 46 yard strike to Jarius Wright brings the Razorbacks to within 30-21. End of the 3rd.
Fourth quarter: Alex Tejada makes a FG with 12:33 to go to make it 30-24.
The Razorback defense locks in and forces a LSU punt. The Razorbacks turn the ball over on downs and LSU has a chance to run out the clock with a few first downs.
After only one first down, the Hogs force a punt and get the ball back with just over 2 minutes remaining. Casey Dick makes one fourth down conversion on a completion to Carlton Salters and then faced with another fourth down, throws the winning strike to Crawford with 21 seconds to go.
Casey's final stat line of his career (in only one half of play):
18/29 197yds, 2 touchdowns 0 interceptions
When the final pass of your collegiate career is a 24 yard touchdown pass on fourth and one to beat LSU, I'd say that's one hell of a way to end your career. Big ups to you, Casey. Big ups.
