WATCH: Washington State punt goes terribly wrong, results in safety
There is no part of football that is easy.
Whether that be a block being made, a tackle, a fair catch or even a snap, nothing is certain to go correctly. Include punting in that category.
On Saturday, Washington State played Wyoming and elected to punt on a 4th-and-6 back in its own territory. Certainly understandable.
What is not understandable is what ensued.
OH NO! That snap just sailed away. pic.twitter.com/tHJd5tAVoB

Not only did the snap fly over the punter’s head, but the punter decided to try and pick up the football on his own 2-yard line and try to make a play. That of course didn’t go perfectly.
And then he seemed to want to flip the ball to a teammate. That’s when the play altogether resulted in a safety.
Hey, at least it’s only two points.
