Nice little revisit from the school I went to.


In a game dubbed "the Mississippi Miracle" -- the mother of all lateralfests -- little Trinity University leaped from obscurity to fame in a span of 62 seconds. One forward pass was followed by 15 laterals involving seven players in a 61-yard scoring play that started with just two seconds left in the game.

Fifteen laterals. No penalties. A blind, over-the-head pitch by an offensive lineman and a final, perfectly bounced toss that could have been thrown by Steve Nash -- all against one of the nation's top Division III defenses -- for a 28-24 Trinity victory.

Completely unscripted genius. "It was craziness," one player says. Trinity coach Steve Mohr still can't believe it happened.

"Just an inch one way or another here or there, and that ballgame's over with," says Mohr, who once said the play couldn't have been run "against air," much less 11 defenders. "Everything had to fall into place so perfectly."
