Welcome back to Caption This. The photo depicts the now famous (infamous?) SEC ref, Wilbur Hackett Jr., putting a shoulder into South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia late in the first half of Saturday night’s game against LSU. Garcia was indeed knocked down on the play, which came on first-and-goal from the LSU 8, though South Carolina did score a TD three plays later to take a 17-10 lead. The Tigers eventually won 24-17.

Feel free to submit a suggested caption in the comments section. I will post some selections tonight.
