Found November 04, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
University of Virginia quarterback Phillip Sims reminded us why the University of Virginia is known more for their pleasant campus and lacrosse team than as a football powerhouse.  On Saturday, Sims led a drive down to the four-yard line of North Carolina State.  On their first down play, the Cavaliers’ coaches called for a beautifully drawn up misdirection trick play. Sims pitched the ball to running back Perry Jones who started running to the right side.  As the Wolfpack’s entire defense followed Jones, Sims rolled to the left and was so wide open that he was the only guy on that half of the field.  Jones lofted a pass back to Sims and… Sims would punch it in two plays later and the Cavs beat the Wolfpack 33-6 but when your team is 3-6 and annually mediocre at best, this play won’t leave you any time soon.

Virginia football trick play has epic fail, Philip Sims drops easy touchdown (Video)

Sometimes trickery in college football can cause teams to overcompensate on defense and give the opposing offenses easy touchdowns.

That was until Sims dropped it with no one close to him:

Virginia football ends streak with win over NC State

So a lot of things went right yesterday.  Finally.  Not everything went right.  But finally, enough went right to cover up the mistakes.  It's amazing how you create your own breaks by playing well enough to earn them.  And whatever things did go wrong, 33-6 lets you ignore them.  Or at least rationalize them.
