I've seen teams suck before...

...but I didn't see this one. I was out of town, and the game wasn't shown there. I decided to go out and do other things, rather than sit and watch some other game...I got back around 9, but didn't have internet access. So, I turned on ESPN, and waited for a score.

20 minutes later, I had to do a double take when I saw it. 21-0 didn't phase me. Joey Harrington with 20 yards passing did. And then I saw Zach had 21 tackles. That must be a typo, right?

Harrington had an abyssmal performance. I don't think I can recall seeing something worse than that. And Zach....He had 35% of his teams tackles, and forced two fumbles. Did anyone else play in the game? And how did they lose?

I returned home yesterday, and discovered that Tivo hadn't recorded the game, either. I'm guessing it did record it, but quickly deleted it after the outcome was known. So, I have not, and will not see this game. I guess that's just as well.

I have read all about it, though. And I can sum it up thusly: they sucked. And I'm starting to have my doubts about Mr. Saban, because how can a team perform *that* badly?
