If you're a gamer, go ahead and turn on Madden or NCAA Football, turn the skill level all the way down, pick the best team and play against the worst team. See how many points you get. We're guessing you're lucky if you're within 100 of what Georgia Tech did to poor Cumberland University almost 100 years ago. Mind you, this was before the forward pass, which stops the clock on an incompletion. Legend has it that this beat down was revenge for a 22-0 smashing of Tech by Cumberland's baseball team earlier that year. Who was this vengeful coach who threw any sense of sportsmanship to the wind, you wonder? John Heisman. Yes, as in the Heisman Trophy.
