minimize the loss on 3rd down.
Snap goes over BYU guy's head, it takes every weird bounce possible and the player can't recover it prior to the opposing team swarming it. Opposing team picks it up and returns it for a touchdown. 2 Cougs freakishly get injured on play, a 3rd is found out to have been smoking weed in the tunnel and is expelled (will later sign with Utah), and Squally inexplicably loses another year of eligibility. Sound about right?
