During the Birmingham Bowl back in January, Florida running back Adam Lane pooped his pants during play. You can see the evidence above. Pretty embarassing, right? Not so said Lane in an interview today, as transcribed by The Alligator’s Richard Johnson:

It was the best thing that could have happened. It got a lot of attention and just put me in a place where I was out there publicly and people knew who I was. I really didn’t get a lot of grief from it. A lot of people were really more focused on how well I did in the game than anything. I feel like it was that way because I embraced it.

As the ancient proverb goes: When life gives you poopy pants, quickly change into new ones and then embrace having pooped your pants.
