Particularly before they became a big business, college sports were ultimately supposed to be for fun. There isn't much fun about losing a football game 222-0, though. Upset that Cumberland had allegedly used pros as ringers the previous year to beat Georgia Tech's baseball team 22-0, Engineers' coach John Heisman (yes, he of trophy fame) who also happened to be the baseball coach decided to avenge the loss in the most obvious way possible. He forced Cumberland into a matchup with the vastly superior Tech team, saying if they canceled the game they'd have to fork over $3000 (a modern-day equivalent of $60,000 or so). Considering Cumberland only dressed 14 guys for the game, we'd say they did pretty well.
47. Georgia Tech runs up the score on Cumberland.
