Ian Waltz had one of the nation's best collegiate discus throws Sunday.
Unfortunately, it came during warmups.
And, understandably, it caused the Washington State freshman from Post Falls, Idaho, to get a little excited.
So, in competition, he forced a couple throws, hit the cage on another, and only got two marks.

We're hearing some indignant outcry about Chicago Bull Dennis Rodman - the NBA's most talented transvestite.
The Bulls' fancy forward recently showed up at a book-signing in Chicago decked out as a woman, proving that only a slender feathered boa separates cross-training from cross-dressing.
Photos moved nationally and critics began labeling Rodman "Rod-woman."

Some will argue that Spokane is a city with all the flavor of vanilla pudding spread sparingly upon white bread.
Except for a few special events - particularly Bloomsday.
It is 60,000-some friends and neighbors coming together to work up a horrendous pit and generate enough energy to differentiate the community from Des Moines or Topeka or any of a half-dozen Bloomingtons around the country.
Tee-time gluttons beware, you're being watched.
Courses in the area are discovering a new phenomenon: golfers who reserve tee times at more than one course - for the same time - and then leave one reservation unused.
Four other frustrated golfers, meanwhile, sit home polishing their putters because they were told that all tee times were booked.
