Last night, while losing 31-2, the Cal Golden Bears tried to fool the USC Trojans with one of the lamest fake punt attempts in college football history.

Punting from his own 16, Golden Bears punter Cole Leininger initiated the play by doing an awkward, panicked two-step before short-arming a pass that barely went 10 yards. You probably don't need us to tell you that it was incomplete, do you? 

Cal would go on to lose 38-30 after later falling short on a comeback bid, dropping the Golden Bears to 5-5 on the year.
