The most random WSU plays

If you’ve spent any of your quarantine time on Twitter, you probably noticed a question that asks you to name something, rank something, or make some sort of list. Something like this:

I was initially going to steal that same concept for this post so we could bring back some classic names and players in WSU history. But, instead I decided to mix it up a little bit. Instead of naming the most random WSU athlete in WSU history, I want you to name the most random play you remember in WSU history.

I’m not talking about the most memorable play. Not an all time highlight that you won’t ever forget. I’m talking about a play that you probably shouldn’t still remember. Maybe it was inconsequential, maybe it happened two decades ago, maybe it didn’t even count. The most random play you remember - from any sport.

For me - one random play I will never forget was 4th and 5 from Jordan-Hare in 2013. Maybe I remember it because Conor Halliday audibled to a running play and I’m still in shock. Maybe it was because I was even more shocked Teondray Caldwell and the Cougs converted the 4th and 5.

Or maybe I just remember Nuss breaking it down.

Whatever the reason, I probably shouldn’t remember that play was well as I do. The Cougs didn’t even score on the drive! But, for this exercise, it is my most random play. What is yours?
