USF: "Pulling the redshirt off a quarterback and then having him get hurt on the first series of the Miami game. Or, down 37-3 in the fourth quarter at Miami, Skip Holtz kicked a field goal to make it 37-6. Then, down 40-6 with 2:00 left, kicked another field goal to lose 40-9. So many to choose from." -- Mark Ennis
