TEN MOMENTS OF MALICOUS FATE: NUMBER 1A

New, 19 comments

We completely botched our list of moments of malicious fate yesterday by not including the blunderous monstrosity of not only not covering the 28 point spread over a 4-7 team, but losing your shot at a national title to Dave Wannstedt...at home. How we'd forgotten the football expression of hitting yourself in the balls with a taser we'll never know--caffeine? Brain tumor? Distracted by a particularly striking piece of lint floating in the sunlight? It could have been anything, but no matter--it was an inexcusable oversight on our part.

We present West Virginia losing to Pitt in their last game of the regular season versus the Wannstache, a 13-9 loss that--did we mention this yet?--cost them a shot at the national title. Pitt was ready to ride, dawg!

We apologize for the error.
