Another disastrous start for the Bakersfield College offense and special teams resulted in another crushing loss in what has become a lost season.

Kirshawn Snelson recorded a 31-yard interception return or a touchdown on the third play of the game, getting East Los Angeles out to a fast start in what became a 44-28 win over the Renegades in Los Angeles Saturday night.

After BC recovered its own fumble on the first offensive play, Snelson found pay dirt on the first pass of the night by Renegade QB Larry Harrington, who was making his first start of the season.

The Huskies scored two more touchdowns in the first quarter on drives that totaled 17 yards.

Braden Wingle, who split time at QB with Harrington, was picked off by Jamaal Evans to set up a 2-yard Rudy Garcia touchdown run.

After Shane Jones lost a fumble on the next Bakersfield play, the Renegade defense got a red zone takeaway, when Chris Thompson forced a fumble Justin Watkins recovered. 

But it was all for naught, as punter Duane Hartman fumbled a snap and was tackled at the Renegade 4 when the series stalled. Garcia scored his second touchdown on the first play of the next drive.

A Harrington 45-yard touchdown run and a 13-yard Wingle-to-Myran Randle touchdown pass got BC within 27-21 in the second quarter, but a touchdown pass and run by East LA quarterback Daniel Mangula helped put the game out of reach.

Isaiah Martin rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns for the Renegades, who are 0-3 in the SCFA North and 2-6 overall.

BC is at Moorpark at 6 p.m. next Saturday.

When you have larger crowds at the local high school games , you know your "college" football program is in trouble.

Holding the bag

Well, it is a tough season for the Renegades. Hopefully,they can finish out the year with at least one more win. About the football lawsuit, the same administration that admitted to guilt is still in charge ( AD,VIce president and President). The issue of “Due Process” was litigated and was reversed. Hard to go back to court with the same players that admitted to guilt in the first place. BTW who is paying the bill for the new litigation? Looking at the timeline, 8 years of court filings ( CO85099) in Sacramento. Let’s be honest, let the coaching staff Actually recruit and fund the program and let the administration due what they do best... talk and do nothing🤔😳

Nevermind

Time for change. This will be the worst record in some time.

Just about every ball possession issue you can mess up in just about every way it can be messed up.

Well, we can reminisce about 2012. Looks like we might get our title back!

Thank you Bakersfield College Renegades. Hats off to the players. The coach. Where is a sense of decency? Step down. For the love of Man. Just leave. The team is a laughingstock. Thank you for that. The AD. Leave on the same train. Express. The President? The RingMaster of this circus. Whatever happened to accountability? Just say NO to futility.
