I saw it happen

I was watching it and I still, hours later, don't believe what I saw. It rivals any subsequent Tommy Hutton moment since the Eagles place-holder single-handedly destroyed the chance for his teams first victory in Dallas in years back in the late 90s.

It was one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen. I do feel sorry for the kid, but he did absolutely everything wrong on this play:

With the Golden Gophers leading 34-31, Justin Kucek lined up to punt at the Minnesota 5. Kucek dropped the snap, picked up the ball and tried to get the punt off, but Casillas raced through for the block. Strickland then recovered it for the winning score.

From 3 points up with 35 seconds to go, to a 4-pt loss with 30 seconds remaining. Amazing.

Aside from the indcredulity of it all, the first thought I had was pity for Minnesota coach Glen Mason; what do you say to this kid after a play like this!?

I know I saw it happen but I still can't believe it!
