Clip of the Morning: College Football Coach Goes On Verbal Tirade Towards Opposing Team's Coach (Video)

What made Wyoming head coach Dave Christensen so mad? Apparently, Christensen was upset because he thought that the opposing team's quarterback, Connor Dietz, faked an injury near the sideline, which gave Air Force some additional time to draw up a play for their backup QB who came in and scored the go-ahead touchdown on the very next play. However, after the tirade in the above video, Wyoming's coach issued an apology stating the following:

"I want to apologize to Wyoming fans, the Mountain West Conference and the game of college football for my actions and for the comments that I made after our game against Air Force," Christensen said. "I let my emotions, my passion for our football program and the frustrations of the first half of the season get the best of me, and my actions reflected negatively on our program.

"I have always tried to teach the young men in our program the importance of sportsmanship in our game, and with that said, I believe it is important to let them know that when you do make a mistake you need to stand up and take responsibility for your actions. That is what I am doing with this apology."
