And Another Thing

The guy you do not want to be today

… is poor Kyle Brotzman, the kicker from Boise State who, in a 34-31 overtime loss to Nevada, shanked a gimme field goal wide right that would have won the game and then hooked another gimme wide left that would have forced a second overtime.

Your heart went out to the kid. And once again we saw how the smallest of things can have the largest of consequences; because of a simple matter of physics – the angle and speed at which a foot meets a ball – Boise goes from the BCS’ worst nightmare to just another team looking for a postgame bowl.

From the Orange/Fiesta/Sugar Bowl to the SlimJim.com Bowl or some such thing, because of a matter of inches. The head spins.
