'A Total Insult to Our Team'

We believe this is from the 2005 Nebraska-Colorado game in Boulder. In many ways, it was the beginning of the end for Gary Barnett at Colorado. His Buffaloes — 14-point favorites — trailed entering halftime, 20-3. As he left the field, Barnett mentioned the Cornhuskers' use of the no-huddle offense, "which was a total insult to our team." Colorado, with a trip to the Big 12 title game on the line, sleepwalked through the second half and lost, 30-3. Of note is that the game had to be stopped in the second half when officials ordered hundreds of debris-throwing fans to leave Folsom Field. The next day, a loss by Iowa State allowed the Buffaloes to back into the title game, where they were drilled by Texas, 70-3. Less than a week later, Barnett was fired, leaving behind a pool of red ink. Past classic coaches videos: Bear Bryant, Woody Hayes, Hayden Fry, Lou Holtz, Bobby Ross and Dan Devine.

What an ass. An insult? We were on about the 2 yard line with less than 5 seconds to play. Any team would have gone for it at that point douchebag.
