    Can't believe that not even one Okmulgee St coach or university official didn't know the rule, and challenge the refs before that play was run.

    it in the end zone, breaking a goal line tackle! Simply AWESOME!!!
    So....I am a big Western Michigan fan and Central Michigan is our arch rival, so it is hard for me to give them a compliment, but OK State got a big MAC attack today, so I will give CMU their props.....for this week at least.

    Ummmm........Central Michigan is not Western Michigan. The biggest rivalry in the MAC is between these two teams. Mixing them up would get you shot here in Kalamazoo.... BTW......Western Michigan won 72 to 21 tonight over NCCU. I was at the game.

    I can't believe the the NCAA wrote the rules so that this can't be reversed.

    Wait - it's the NCAA. Sure I can.

    Given that it was the last play, and in the interest of getting things right, you'd think that they could just nullify the last touchdown, take the points off of the board, and award the game to the rightful winner. Easy and would make sense, so it'll never happen.

    It happens all the time. The fake face mask to Aaron Rodgers, the tuck rule that didn't apply to the Patriots, the non call on the coach at the end of the Steelers/Bengals playoff game.

    All things considered, can we really be surprised?

    I had a rather unique experience over the weekend. The first time I have ever been to a stadium that was evacuated due to weather in the middle of a game. We went to the Western Michigan / NCCU game Saturday night. At half time the band came on the field, did one song and then marched off which seemed kind of odd. They were also doing fireworks at half time, which they started blowing off, but they left all the stadium lights on which was also kind of strange. When the fireworks finished, there was a few minutes of nothing going on and they came over the loudspeaker saying “we have weather moving in and need to evacuate the stadium immediately”. Getting around 20,000 people out of a football stadium takes a while and we were still well inside the gates when the rain started pouring and the wind started blowing. Our car was parked about a quarter mile away, and by the time we made it, we were pretty much soaked to the bone. The game was a blowout anyway, so we decided to just go ahead and leave. They eventually did re-start the 2nd half more than 70 minutes later (the final score was 70 to 21). Anyway, it was a unique experience and a first for me, so thought I would share.

    My Washington Huskies are rated #8???

    FYI my moms cousin was the head coach of the Washington Huskies for 3 years (only won 6 games in 3 years) The great Keith Gilbertson.

    I was/am a Husky, and I'm always interested in watching them, but alas, like the Seahawks, I have a better chance of seeing God burping than I do seeing a team from the Northwest on TV in DFW. for some reason, Texas Hates football from the Pack 12. They'll show Ball State vs Maine before they'll show a top 25 team from the NW.
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    13-10 Wisconsin over GEORGIA STATE as the 4th quarter starts with GS with the ball after picking off WI!!

    Iowa is also in a dogfight with Carson Wentz's alma mater, ND State.

    As a Bison alumni I am quite enjoying us giving a top fifteen team an absolute dogfight.

    And the Badgers will probably move up from #9 because of the ND State/Iowa score!

    Not that they deserve it.

    Their next 4 games could all be losses (Mich, Mich St & Iowa on the road & Ohio St at home).

    I know no one here cares about the MAC, but Western Michigan is now 3-0 with their second win over a Big 10 team. This is a sneaky good team and it is going to be a fun season.

    The Badgers have one tough ass schedule coming up. Could be tough sledding, but they are looking good so far. Regarding ND State, they are a top tier FCS school and have won the championship several times in the last few years. Iowa's loss did not surprise me that much.

    Impressive, no matter how you slice it. Add in that WMU kicked the shit out of the Illini, and it's even more impressive.
