Mississippi State guard Craig Sword knew from watching this year’s NBA Dunk Contest that jumping over mascots is trending right now.

Denny’s happened to bring out the whole breakfast platter of mascots for Thursday’s College Slam Dunk Contest, and Sword selected the most impressive of them all—the pancake—to be on his poster.

Only thing was…the pancake won. Sword came up short as he knocked over the standing flapjack.
