Florida's Matt Elam Celebrates a Big Play by Tackling His Own Teammate

Adam KramerNational College Football Lead WriterOctober 6, 2012

Florida’s Louchiez Purifoy made a tremendous tackle on a punt return...only to be tackled by his own teammate. HARD.

Gator Matt Elam is not one to shy away from contact, although his celebratory push-tackle of Purifoy is actually one of the best hits we've seen today. That's not necessarily a good thing.

Purifoy looked a bit confused (you could probably use other words to describe it) on why Elam hit him so hard.

A Roger Goodell fine will likely be handed down shortly.
