Bigger story: Appy State or Boston no-hitter?

    Well, I predicted SportsCenter would start with the no-hitter.

    I was right.

    Appy State is the much, much, much, much, much bigger story. As awesome as no-hitters are, a win like Appy State's had never been accomplished in Division I football. Never.

    Appy State is the bigger story everywhere but in New England. Period.

    Clay Buchholz no-hitter because:

    1) I believe a baseball highlight should always open up SportsCenter when applicable, and
    2) I'm a Michigan fan.

    Where's Bobby Ewing in the shower when you need him?

    How quickly you forget who you're talking about. ESPN is in love with everything Red Sox/Yankees...

    Alas, I didn't forget. It's why I predicted they would start with Boston. But I said it half joking, thinking that surely, even ESPN would lead with possibly the biggest upset in college football history.

    ESPN might have led with the no-no because Appy State-Michigan has been over for some time.

    As much as I love baseball, the bigger story right now is Michigan's loss. If this were Buccholz's first start, I'd go the other way. Same if Michigan weren't ranked No. 5. When you're a top-10 team, you're expected to dominate, and when you lose, it's a huge story.

    In the paper, Appy State is still the lead.

    On TV, the no-no is newer.

    Should have been Appy State, but knew what the WWL would do.

    Good point, but again, we're talking about something that had never been accomplished. And we're not talking about Appy State going to TCU and winning. Michigan, the winningest program in Division I-A history, lost to a 1-AA team (or whatever the division is called now).

    Two years ago, when Appy State won the 1-AA national title, Kansas beat them 38-7. Kansas, the averagest of average teams, beat Appy State pretty good during a national championship season.

    It's a game that can't be compared because it's never happened.

    Appy State is the bigger story by 3,000 miles.

    Now ...

    What if it was a perfect game?

    It might have something to do with the new Big 10 network.
    Maybe this was ESPN's response for not getting a live cutaway, like they do with virtually every other network.
