LEXINGTON, Ky. — His right leg was slung over the Wall meant to separate players from fans and, on this night, joy from torment.
That poor man began straddling the wall when quarterback Stephen Johnson hit Charles Walker for 14 yards on fourth-and-11 for a first down at the Gators’ 35 with 21 seconds to go.
Then Snell broke loose up the middle for another 10 yards and a sellout crowd — the Cats’ first since 2015 — prepared to join that half-slung man in scaling the wall.
Instead of a yellow flag, for holding on right guard Nick Haynes , the official should’ve just gone ahead and thrown a grenade into the stands.
It landed well short of the cross bar, and that poor man dragged his leg back onto the side of torment and shuffled off like some 63,000 other shell-shocked fans and somber, red-eyed players.
