The Savannah State Athletic Director Sure Does Hate His Football TeamIsaac Rauch9/08/12 9:15amFiled to: College FootballSavannah stateFlorida StateOklahoma StateJimbo FisherMike GundyCupcakesNewsAppic11EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Or least that's the way it looks in the short-term. Partly as an investment in the future, Savannah State has offered itself up as a cupcake to far better teams this season, and has proven itself thus far a rich, artisanal cupcake, with delicate pink frosting and cinnamon accents. The program's first loss of the season came last week against Oklahoma State in a game with the biggest pre-game point-spread (62) ever. The Cowboys surpassed that differential with 11:30 remaining in the third quarter, eventually winning 82-0. After the game, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy fended off accusations of running up the score and answered questions like, "How difficult is it, especially looking across the sidelines as the game goes on?" ("It's extremely difficult," he replied.) There's an explanation for the game from the Oklahoma State perspective here—conference realignment led some programs with which Oklahoma State had long-standing deals to renege, so they could fit in more conference games—but it also makes the game sound like a snafu, the product of a lot of unusual circumstances.
