    The University of Massachusetts needs to drop down to FCS again or drop football altogether.

    at Rutgers 21-48 L
    home Southern Illinois 20-45 L
    at UNCC 17-52 L
    home Coastal Carolina 28-62 L

    And I've been in an earthquake at Memorial Stadium and hit a deer in Oxford. All of which still has nothing to do with your "oppressive heat" statement, especially for a noon game. But if you want to spew generic averages in an attempt to prove a point, you win!

    Southeast football IS THE DEVIL! (Even when the weather doesn't fit your talking point.) I like Pac-12 football, too. Some of my best friends graduated from Pac-12 schools. I'm glad Cal is competitive again. Makes the Big Game more fun.

    And enough threadjacking. I know the two hottest months of the year in Berkeley are September and October (1991 specifically), but this is a college football thread. So I'm out.

    The Bears haven't played or practiced in those conditions while the Rebels have practiced in them literally every day.

    Polls being wrong is what makes them so fun.

    Does aTm only care about the Clemson game every year? Whenever Mond throws the ball, it hangs up so long for the defenders to get under it.

    This may be the most irate that Ole Miss people have been since the early 1960s. This time, they might be right. The still photo in this story sure looks like a TD. The interesting thing is that the SEC Network didn't have a goal-line angle, which is pretty amazing for a play that started inside the 5.

    Well done.
    The "Pac 12 officials" line in the statement works on two levels. It fuels a conspiracy theory. And, well, it's Pac 12 officials, a phrase that is its own punch line.
    Spartan Squad likes this.

    I kept waiting and waiting a decent replay angle. The SEC Network never showed it even though it stuck with the game long after the final play.
    This is one of the questions the folks at the Pac 12 will have to answer: Did the review crew have any angles other than those available to the home viewing audience? If so, what did they show?
