Ever the Civil War buff, Mumme had a quote after the rout.
“I know how Lee felt after Pickett’s Charge,” McMurry coach Hal Mumme said. “It’s all my fault. I just asked them to do something they couldn’t do.”
Mumme was the Kentucky coach from 1997-2000, leading the Cats to a pair of bowl games. He was forced to resign during an NCAA investigation after the 2000 season. The man who brought Air Raid to Kentucky ended up 20-26 during his time in Lexington.
Mumme coached at Southeast Louisiana and New Mexico State, where he was fired after the 2008 season. He is now 10-11 at McMurry.
