Slowest Hurricane Ever

What a disastrous two-minute drill by Miami at the conclusion of tonight's Emerald Bowl. The Cal Bears scored a late touchdown off a turnover and held on for the 24-17 victory. But really it was QB Jacory Harris and the Hurricane offense who gave the game away.

After Harris fumbled deep in his own territory the Bears found the endzone with 2:41 left in the game. Check out the play-by-play for the final possession. Miami needs a touchdown... so it runs nine plays and gains twelve yards. Yikes. Harris inexplicably took his time calling plays, ran with the ball when he should have thrown it away and failed to get out of bounds when necessary. Coach Randy Shannon was so frustrated he called Miami's final timeout after the clock was stopped following an incomplete pass.

That might have been the worst two-minute I've even seen. It made the Philadelphia Eagles offense look like the 2007 New England Patriots.
