College football Week 11 report card: Radio call of Texas Tech's field goal earns highest mark




Welcome back to another edition of the 2021 college football report card, your home for light-hearted college football analysis and assessment.

With Prof. Axson on sabbatical this weekend, a new grading scale has been introduced - and many teams, fans, players and coaches are heading to the Dean's List, while others are doomed for academic probation.

Here are the grades for Week 11.

Storming the field (twice), grown men complaining about losing

No. 18 Baylor upset No. 4 Oklahoma - hello, College Football Playoff committee drama - on Saturday. As the Bears snapped the Sooners' 17-game winning streak, Baylor fans streamed onto the field before the game was officially over. They were sent to the sidelines so the game could end.

With a single second remaining on the clock, Bears coach Dave Aranda opted to kick a field goal because the Big 12 depends on point differential when determining conference championship game participants in the event of ties. Isaiah Hankins knocked through the 32-yarder to make it a 27-14 final.

It was kind of a chaotic scene in Waco, and Sooners coach Lincoln Riley was not pleased after the game.

Jairon McVea (42) of the Baylor Bears and his teammates are surrounded by fans following the teams 27-14 win over the Oklahoma Sooners.

"It became a safety issue," Riley said. "I know why Dave tried to kick the field goal. I don't agree with it. And I still think above all else, there's a code of sportsmanship that I believe in. I wouldn't have done it. But that's his decision, that's his football team."

He has a point with the safety gripe. Field storms should always err on the side of caution, even though they are inherently dangerous. But what Riley is actually mad about is that he was outcoached all afternoon - literally until the final second. Save it, Lincoln.

Double storm: C

Wah wah wah: F

Walk off kicks

Texas Tech fired its head coach this season. The new one says he wants to die there. And they're bowl eligible for the first time since the guy coaching the Arizona Cardinals was their coach.

Jonathan Garibay nailed a 62-yard field goal for the Red Raiders to upset Iowa State. College kickers? College kickers, hell yeah. Patrick Mahomes was all pumped up.

Stick around for the entirety of the home radio call.

"Wooooooo. Yeah, baby!"

For the brand: A

Radio call: A+++ (this is the highest possible grade)

Walk off Hail Marys

Speaking of fantastic home radio calls, check out this one from South Dakota's game-winning Hail Mary over South Dakota State, which gave it back to South Dakota with one second on the clock on the wrong side of the 50.

Classic double-tip walk off, just like the Coyotes drew it up.

The catch: A

The call: A++ (so close)

Not knowing the spike rules

This gaffe is more on the Miami Hurricanes coaching staff than freshman quarterback Tyler Van Dyke, who spiked the ball after snapping it with two seconds left on the clock in an effort to secure a Hail Mary attempt.

Then the referees did their job and enforced the rule that there must be three seconds left for a spike to occur, and the game ended. Florida State pulled off the 31-28 victory.

No time to lose: C-

Guys bein' dudes

The scene: An entire section of (almost all) male Indiana Hoosiers fans climbed to a upper-tier, vacant section of Memorial Stadium before halftime against Rutgers.

The effort and execution is actually quite well done. The timing couldn't be worse, though. The Scarlet Knights blew the door off Indiana, 38-3. You can't be getting clowned by Rutgers and pulling moves like this.

Put the shirts back on: D+

"S-E-C" taunts

Kansas won a bonkers overtime game (as 31-point underdogs) on the road at Texas, 57-56. The brave Jayhawks fans who showed up brought the sauce long before the final two-point conversion to win (the play is poetry) by chanting "S-E-C."

Take that, superpower conference realignment: B+
