Never Say Die?

There will be a moment for cool, logical analysis later. Obviously you want to win, but it's never good when a "win" feels a lot more like a loss. And if there's any desire to improve, the coaches and players are gonna ride themselves like they did lose rather than feel content that they had just enough of a cushion to survive a mountain of incompetence in the final 2:30. I'm speechless.

There is probably only one game in the history of organized sport with a crazier, more f&*ked up final 3 minutes than that one. Here it is, enjoy. For reference, Plano East is trailing 41-17 in the Texas HS state championship with 3 minutes to play (note also that, as far as I can tell, there was competent officiating in this game):
