Ault grimaces for the cameras -- again and again


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

Nevada coach Chris Ault has had an amazing career as a head coach, winning his way into the College Football Hall of Fame because of his storied history with the Wolf Pack.

But watching the game tonight makes me think he has a perpetual scowl on his face throughout the entire game.

That's how it appears from the tight sideline shots that have shown him muttering into his two-way radio all night long.

At least Luke Lippincott's fumble that just killed a drive deep in Missouri territory justified the response. It was Nevada's 10th turnover of the season.

In Lippincott's defense, he's playing hurt tonight. Leading rusher Vai Taua injured his elbow returning Missouri's first punt and hasn't played on a Nevada offensive play tonight.

But Ault needs to lighten up. His team is still solidly in the game.
