"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
Baylor destroyed Stephen F. Austin on Saturday by the score of 48-0, with RGIII having another incredible game. However there was a 41 minute lightning delay in the first half and the game was called after three quarters - kind of.
During the delay the coaches agreed to skip halftime and reduce the final two quarters to 12 minutes each - is that even allowed? The game continued in the second half, but with 3 minutes left in the (shortened) third quarter more lightning was approaching the stadium. The two coaches met at midfield and agreed to let the clock run out in the quarter (without running any plays).
As we know after the WMU game, since three quarters were completed the game is official according to NCAA rules and all stats will apparently be kept. This seems ridiculous to me because the game really only lasted 39 minutes, 42 including the 3 minute runoff. Compare this to the UM-WMU game where 43 1/2 minutes were completed, but the stats were not kept by the NCAA.
So WTF NCAA? Why should Baylor get to keep their stats but not Michigan? Why couldn't the last minute and a half of the 3Q magically run off the clock for the UM-WMU game? I WANT ANSWERS.
So here are my shots during and after the game. It was fun being down on the field of the Big House but it was a deal of work. It certainly was more crowded than doing the games at Rynearson. There also were a few more restrictions but all in all I had a blast doing it. I hope I get another opportunity to find myself on the field again (at the Big House).
So shots of the game:
Shots after the game:
And a not so great Panoramic shot of the Stadium:
I managed to get a shot of Lloyd Brady but given the furor over the last person that posted pictures of him, I decided to not post his picture.l
Anyways, I hope you guys like these.
I didn't get to see the game (only highlights) so correct me if I'm wrong but it looked like 4-5 of Denard's runs came on pass plays were he saw nothing was open and took off. If Denard can consistently do this he would become even more dangerous than he already is.
This is not to complain about the price of the food at the stadium (which is freaking crazy), but rather to verify.
At halftime today, I went to the cart directly across from the south end of section 21 and bought two bottles of pop and a box of popcorn. The prices on the sign were $4 each for pop and $5 for popcorn. I handed the girl $13 and started to turn away. She said, "It's 14." I added it up for her, "$8 for pop plus 5 for popcorn is $13." "Popcorn is $6", she said. I told her the sign says $5, which it did, so that's what I would pay. She said okay and I went back to my seat.
The question is, I've NEVER known the listed prices in the stadium to be wrong. They get up there with sticker numbers before games and make changes all the time, and this was just one of the "superpretzel" carts. Between that and the fact that she didn't argue with me but just said "ok", I'm wondering if she and the other kids working the cart were trying to skim? Should I email the Athletic Department?
This week has seen a lot of upsets and ranked teams getting beaten.
Any chance we make it to the top 25? Discuss!
