You can't do that Danny boy.

On Saturday Vanderbilt Women's Soccer player Sarah Fuller made history by becoming the first woman to play in a Power Five college football game.  She kicked off the second half of the 41-0 loss to Missouri with a squib kick of some kind.

Fuller kept the kick inbounds, didn't allow a return and made history.  She also received some criticism for the kick, including from ESPN's Dan Le Batard, who will probably issue a formal apology at some point.

Le Batard tweeted and deleted criticism of Fuller's kickoff.

I'm going to guess that Dan didn't realize that this kick was by design.  Which I can't really blame him.  I too was confused as to why Vanderbilt didn't have Sarah do a normal kickoff.

Congratulations to Sarah for getting her name in the history books no matter how bizarre it ended up going down.
