Adrian Peterson On Games With Names Podcast

Adrian Peterson doesn't want to erase Zabransky's Boise State victory from his memory on Games with Names podcast.

We at VannDigital share the second episode of NFL veteran, 3x Super Bowl Champion, and Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman's inaugural podcast, Games with Names, co-hosted by comedian and lifelong sports fan, Sam Morril.

Today, Julian and Sam sat down with 2007 First Round Draft Pick and Offensive Rookie of the Year, Adrian Peterson, and the college quarterback who handed him and the Oklahoma Sooners their biggest upset, Boise State's Jared Zabransky.

[00:34:16] PETERSON ON GROWING UP A LONGHORN FAN BUT PLAYING AT OKLAHOMA
"I had to [go to OU]. I had to get out of the state of Texas. It was unfortunate because I grew up a Longhorn fan. You know, my uncle went to UT. I used to go and watch when he was there with [Major] Applewhite and Ricky Williams– all those guys. But you know, when it came around to it, I felt like Oklahoma was a better fit for me."

[00:36:25] PETERSON ON HOW THIS GAME MAKES HIM FEEL
"Man, for me it's a heartbreak because that was my last college game. And my first game back in like three months because I broke my collarbone [in] week six. So to go out in that fashion, and that type of game is just – it just sucked becuase I knew that was it for me."

[00:36:58] PETERSON ON THE PLAY EVERYONE FORGETS
"Well to lose, first off, on fourth and 18… a hook and ladder. I'm sitting there on the sidelines like, 'Are you freaking serious?' And to get into overtime and get hit with a two-point conversion on the Statue of Liberty, yeah it was devastating."

[00:37:25] ZABRANSKY ON THE PLAY EVERYONE FORGETS
"For me, it's the polar opposite of that. It was the pinnacle of my athletic career… that was the pinnacle, that was a rollercoaster ride of about eight months."

[00:52:35] ZABRANSKY ON ADDING THE HOOK AND LADDER TO THEIR BACK POCKET
"So no, we had the Statue [of Liberty] in the back pocket because we knew that was a play. It was a Friday walkthrough… The crazy thing is, week nine of the season, we're at the chalkboard and Coach [Chris] Pete[rson] comes in and we're in the TV room and he goes 'Hey what do you guys think about [the Hook & Ladder]?' And it's fricken Friday. Like, we're just touching base going to go walk the plays…Like why the hell are you thinking about this play right now and making a change? Guy was a genius, for that alone."

[00:59:32] ZABRANSKY ON HIS MOM MISSING THE LAST DRIVE BEFORE OT
"So my mom is like – I've got 35 people in the stands– my mom gets up, goes to the bathroom. Apparently she's like crying, feeling bad for her son, right? And she misses the whole last drive. My cousin's calling his way to the bathroom like 'Hey! Tana they're going to overtime!"

[00:59:47] PETERSON ON WHEN HE KNEW THE GAME WAS OVER
"As soon as [Zabransky] threw that pick, I knew the game was over. I'm like, 'this game is locked' because you know, the comeback and how everything played out. Us scoring a touchdown and getting the two-point conversion and then coming back and the miscommunication and him walking into the endzone. At that point, we knew the game was over."

[01:05:30] PETERSON ON NOT ERASING THIS GAME FROM HIS MEMORY
"No, it's definitely not erased, you know, it's what I think of– I think about it often, talk about it often too. It was a competitive game, and just back and forth, up and down. Just everything that has come from the game as well kind of keeps it alive. You know, it was just that type of magical game in how it played out in their favor."
