Marcus Thigpen: CFL star in the making

Former Hoosier Marcus Thigpen made a big splash in his debut with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League, scoring two special teams touchdowns, including a 93-yard kickoff return to start the game. Just for good measure, he returned a missed field goal 119 yards later.

That earned him CFL Special Teams Player of the Week honors. See an interview with Marcus and his coach here.

A week later, Thigpen returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown against the Calgary Stampeders, which is broken down here. He also had a touchdown catch in that game.

A star is born, eh?

So I screwed up…

and didn’t post a link to the chat this morning. This was probably the reason we only had six questions. Korman usually does this, of course. He’s on vacation, and for some reason it never occurred to me until after the chat that someone else might have to do this, and that someone should probably be me.

My apologies, all. Hopefully you get something out of reading the answers to the few questions we got.
