College football games are notorious for featuring gimmicky contests at halftime, usually involving throwing footballs into some kind of receptacle. Individuals have been widely mocked in recent years for throwing underhand or going for two-handed chest passes, but one fan at Thursday's Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit decided to use a sidearm approach... and it went about as well as one would expect.

There is so much to take in with this clip. The giant tire (no Dr. Pepper cans this time?). The horrible Patrick Mahomes impression. The announcers talking over this bizarre clip as if to ignore it entirely.

In the past, a clip like this would fade away. Unfortunately, Twitter is forever. This will be one of the more fun stories of the night.

No one knows exactly what is going on with this giant tire and the man throwing the ball sidearmed. Did he get lost? Is there even a contest?

We can only hope he gets home safely with at least a humble consolation prize.
