SOU Football is on FIRE (well at least their bus is)

Just came across this gem on YouTube. Now I'm not sure when this happened during this season but the Southern Oregon Raiders where on the road to play somebody and one of their charter buses caught fire. Now this is a dangerous situation and I don't want to rip on any institution of higher learning but why would YOU RUN TOWARDS A BURNING VEHICLE LET ALONE A BUS!? I understand they were trying to get their equipment out of harm’s way but forget that. I’m ok with my shoulder pads going up in flames rather than having a bus blow up in my face. Call me crazy.

(Warning: A few curse words are uttered in this clip so skip this one if you're easily offended by a few “S” words)

***edit note: This actually happened in 2007 when SOU was headed up to play Willamette (thanks LoonyLarry from the O-live board)

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess nobody in that group will be doing any brain surgeries in the future...I would imagine you could find somebody that could make a hell of a pizza though.

Having your bus catch fire would be a pretty horrible situation but that video was darn funny.

...and how helpful was the cameraman in unloading the bus while "rolling tape"?
