During Friday night’s game between FAU and UCF, Knights punter Mac Loudermilk tried to sell a glancing blow as a big hit, earning plenty of reactions on social media.
After being barely touched, he rolled around on the turf a bit before limping to the sideline, falling to the ground again and then limping off the field.
can we give Mac Loudermilk some kind of award for this acting job? pic.twitter.com/w518krPGMG

It really was a magnificent piece of acting that did draw a flag, but UCF declined it.
Mac Loudermilk draws a running into the kicker penalty on the punt. He comes up limping, holding his right hip and struggling to get off the field. Looks like a good acting job as his teammates smile on the sidelines. Nice try. #UCF

Many people out there enjoyed the performance.
Mac Loudermilk needs to become an All-Pro punter so I can justify buying his jersey one day. https://t.co/LQvGROmhUW

Mac Loudermilk is good for college football and good #ForTheBrand… That's just the truth

Then there’s this perspective, which is hard to argue against.
We’re missing the bigger picture here… there’s a punter named Mac Loudermilk
