The Notre Dame Fighting Irish held a pretty standard spring football game on Saturday. The weather in South Bend was pleasant, fans and players were all in a good mood, and the quarterbacks wore red because they aren’t getting tackled yet in practice.

Well, every quarterback except for the biggest one, of course. Star defensive tackle Louis Nix was brought in to play quarterback on a two-point conversion attempt. After the 340-pounder barked out what had to have been made-up commands to the offense, he took the snap, faked a pass and then rumbled in for the score.

There’s a reason why coach Brian Kelly calls Nix “Irish Chocolate.”
