Here is a list of things the San Diego State football team did not do during its 27-3 loss to Fresno State on Saturday night at SDCCU Stadium:

/cracks knuckles

  • Score a touchdown
  • Run block
  • Pass protect
  • Show any poise in the pocket whatsoever
  • Stop the run
  • Generate a pass rush
  • Force a turnover
  • Return a kickoff past the 25
  • Retain possession of the Old Oil Can.
  • Convince anyone they were even going to try to retain said Oil Can
  • Exhibit any semblance of fighting spirit after the Boise State loss
  • Keep a crowd of more than 40,000 from streaming for the exits early for the second week in a row

Here is a list of things the San Diego State football will now not do in the wake of its 27-3 loss to Fresno State on Saturday night at SDCCU Stadium:

  • Win its division now that Fresno State has what amounts to a three-game lead
  • Defend the Mountain West Conference title
  • Receive an ounce of national attention
  • Go to the Fiesta Bowl
  • Go to the Peach Bowl
  • Go to the Las Vegas Bowl
  • Play anyone other than North Texas or Arkansas State or someone of that ilk in anything other than a garbage bowl game played in the middle of nowhere in mid-December
  • Have more than 20,000 butts in the seats for either of its final two home games
  • Have more than six (6) students attend either game
  • Have the 2017 season remembered as anything other than a whopping missed opportunity or a cautionary tale about the hopelessness of San Diego sports
  • Inspire me to write anything approaching a coherent recap about that absolute steaming turd of a football game
  • Keep me up past midnight
