OXFORD, Miss — Ever hear the one about the Louisianian that tried to call timeout?
Evidently, it takes a full 17 seconds — 17 seconds — to call timeout on the Bayou.
How about the one about the Louisianians being in range for a game-winning field goal and taking a sack — of all things, a sack — to knock themselves out of range?
That was Saturday in a nutshell. A last minute of near-heroics turned into Louisiana and LSU giving the world a new batch of Cajun jokes in a 25-23 Ole Miss escape.
