Conceding victory early

Everyone knew Mississippi Valley State didn’t have a chance to beat UCLA by the time the game was about 2 minutes old. At least one player conceded the victory before the game clock read 00:00, according to Ben Howland.
“Stanford Speech came up to me with about seven minutes to go, and he said `Coach, I hope you guys win the whole thing.’ That was really classy of him to do that in the middle of the game. So, they have a bunch of really good kids. I don’t know if you saw one of their kids after the game, he was crying his eyes out. I mean, it’s their last game as seniors. So, I would never make light of, or make fun of someone in that way. I think that’s, you know, being rude.”
