The gods are against us -- and were from the start. Too many adverse variables -- missing key players, three time-zone change (they gotta be sleep deprived), cold field/ball, weak pass defense against first-rate passer.
I turned it off-- too painful to watch.....

Clock management in the final minute reflects the rest of the effort of this group.

None of us would ever expect Glover to make an important kick - he has missed a dozen of key ones during his time - and then we could depend on him again to cut it to two score lead on that last possession.

Also, incredibly stupid on 3rd and 4 near the goal line, not to run the ball knowing it was 4 down territory.

On defense, we need to find 11 guys that want to play with some type of effort on National TV in the 2nd Half.

Win probability down from 60% to 6.1

New DC especially has a big job in front of him

Nevada deserved better.

They wasted their time for an opponent that clearly didn’t want to be playing today (besides a handful of guys).

Just making the bowl and not winning the bowl must have been on a goal.

Run the ball here on 3rd and 2 and put together a drive to make this score respectable.

Glover with a couple of way short kicks and then whiffs on a tackle effort.

He will cost us this game - if not by just his miss earlier - but by his efforts after that.

Our defenders just hate using their arms to tackle on this drive.

Such a crucial time for a stop and a lack off effort in finishing.

Missing our two Captains on Defense.

It will be the difference in this game (because of Glover's mistakes).

Claybrook injured. Hope it isn’t serious. We are very thin at several positions today.

Pratt has thrown 3 picks today. Nevada had 3 picks on the year. Bad day for our QB.

Pratt is responsible for 21 pts for Nevada. And we have zero turnovers. Just a bad day.

2nd and 1 turns into 4th and long.

The Freshman Quarterback is our guy but reminding us all that he is a Freshman.

We needed him to have a perfect game with our Defensive Captains electing not to make the trip.
