Clips of the epic fail went bananas across the web today after reaching the front page of Reddit, but the Palm Beach Post's Matt Porter did us all a solid when he figured out that the clip originated with Miami Hurricanes running back Trayone "Choc" Gray's Instagram account.
New Times has attempted to identify the mystery belly-flopper, but a UM spokesperson didn't immediately respond to questions.
Well, that is certainly one way to get the coaching staff's attention. It's also a tremendous way to receive medical attention. Luckily, the belly-flopper gave a thumbs-up when he arose from the depths of his underwater embarrassment and seems to have a mostly intact body.
Now that the shenanigans are over, the Hurricanes can concentrate on not flopping in their September 2 season opener against Bethune-Cookman.
