Sorry, but it's just an undeniable fact of sports.
Just watch this clip of "Cavman" (from before yesterday's Virginia game vs. TCU).
Cavman is a guy who dresses up as a Cavalier for Virginia football games. I mean, I guess that's cool, but that's not really the point.
Check out some important moments from this video:
:35 seconds - Computer generated Cavman on Scott Stadium jumbotron gets angry after seeing a computer generated horned frog prancing around Virginia's campus. Cavman goes to get his computer generated horse.
1:17 - Cavman (still computer generated) punches horned frog off highway overpass.
1:29- A truck runs over horned frog on said highway. Cavman is driving the truck.
1:51- Real life Cavman rides real life horse onto the field as real life Cavalier football players run to their sideline.
1:59- Camera pans to Cavman, on the ground, after having fallen off of his horse. Cavman unsuccessfully attempts to get back on horse.
Oh, then the football team lost, 30-14.
Theory proven. Thank you Cavman.
