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.
