Well it was expected to happen when the parents who were kids during the "everyone gets an award, no one loses" generation has their own kids now in school.

I'm sorry but don't they have a mercy rule? Nevermind...it is TX... What did they expect? They were winless, the other team was undefeated (closest game was 56-14)... It was the last team of the season so the coach let all the scrubs that hadn't scored yet in the season get a TD....

I watched my HS team lose 60 something to 0 in a Missouri state championship game years ago. It was a full on butt whipping. They didn't have a mercy rule, but they let the clock run with no stoppage in the 4th Q. I think that is about all the officials can do.
Several years later our boys got back to the championship and won. I guess all of the good kids on the other team graduated and diminished that schools talent.
I felt sorry for the winning coach...he said he was trying to do everything possible to not run the score up, playing his second and third stringers, running the ball instead of passing, etc. I mean, you can't just punt on 1st down or take a knee every play...what else can you do? I think he handled it the right way.
On a side note: Why is this even in the news?
Not this one....
The (losing team) could have forfiet at some point.
Unless the winning team was going to act like you see teams do in those inspirational YouTube videos when a team puts in a special needs child, there wasn't much left for the winning team to do to slow down.
Losing builds character too, and the coaches and parents of the losing team could use this as a way to teach a lesson to thier kids about maintaining dignity, giving it your all in the face of overwhelming odds or in a no-win situation. It looks like a small group actually think this was 'bullying', but who knows.
