This kind of nonsense doesn't even happen in Madden.

Speaking of, I miss Pat Summerall calling the games in John Madden football. Anyway, let's look at Louisiana Tech's offense lose roughly 90 yards on a play gone horribly wrong.

I suppose that is what happens when the ball used to play football is not round. With its peculiar shape, it makes it hard for players to properly pick it up, as they are unable to tell just which way the ball will bounce next. Watching football players trying to scoop up a loose football is like watching a 3-year-old attempt to discuss the complexities of Algebras to an infant.

As you can tell from the score, Mississippi State didn't exactly need that play to win the ball game. At the time of the worst offensive play this side of a punter whiffing on a punt, Louisiana Tech was down 43 points. While not a mathematician, that seems like a lot.

The play resulted in a third-and-93 for Louisiana Tech. That is what happened. Here they were, looking like they might get some much needed points, and all of a sudden it is third-and-never.

For those keeping an exact score at home: It was technically an 87-yard loss that left Louisiana Tech facing a third-and-93 at their own 7. Not surprisingly, the Bulldogs couldn't convert.

Mississippi State's Nick Fitzgerald threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more in some of the game's more conventional moments. Fitzgerald threw for 124 yards and ran for 111 yards. Aeris Williams needed just nine carries for 107 yards rushing.
