There's such a thing as trying to be too cute and UConn should understand that now.
In the final moments of their game against Missouri, UConn was trailing 9-6. The responsible thing to do would be to kick a field goal to tie the game with less than a minute left. They were on the Missouri 25-yard line for crying out loud.
Those Huskies, got to give it to them, tried to win the game but ended up throwing an interception. Of all the things that could've happened, this is by far the worst.
