I know, 777 yards, etc…. But there are 3 things that bugged me about the end of that game, and don’t seem to be in any articles I have read.
- Why isn’t anyone commenting about that Husky Defensive Tackle jumping in front of someone else to snag the last kickoff, then proceeding to fumble away any shot at a miracle comeback? It was not inconceivable to think the Huskies could have scored quickly and recovered an on-site kick in that game. What was the defensive guy thinking?
- Also, why hasn’t anyone written about how unacceptable it was for the Huskies to have to burn their last time out with the clock ALREADY STOPPED, because they only had 10 men on the field?
- And furthermore, if the Huskies had scored 2x and won the game, we’d have been able to scold the Baylor running back who selfishly went into the end zone for his 5th TD. My clock math could be wrong, but I think he should have slid down at the 1 yard line so they could ice the clock. (Along those lines, when a team scores a last second meaningless touchdown to suddenly cover the spread, which was 9, I always have to wonder….Especially when the last second touchdown comes on a 43 yard run with the safeties playing in separate time zones from where you’d expect them to be. )
