For no other reason than there is football on.
Hawaii LA Tech is either -5.5 or -6 that I've seen. Noticing the zoomed in angles on the crowd already to hide empty seats.
somehow we're only 124th
I started a dynasty with Tech in NCAA '08 for PS2 and won a couple titles within the first 4 years, prompting the Big 12 to invite me to join the conference (and kicking TTU in the process), whereupon I won 2 more MNCs.
I think I got tired of winning and quit playing that dynasty.
There was a LT fan holding up a "move the chains" sign on a Hawaii 3rd and 4 earlier.
I'm predicting multiple picks from LT tonight. This Hawaii QB stares down every receiver. If that guy is covered he goes into deer in head lights mode.
Take that back, he's gotten a lot better checking down later in the drive.
42 more minutes 'til I can go home.
Our National Nightmare is over! Wednesday Night Football is back. And, rejoice everyone, more good news: Tuesday Night Football returns next week when Middle Tennessee plays Troy.
Anyway, it should be pointed out that Hawaii was not favored in this game. It was La Tech -5.5 or -6.
Yeah, the page I was looking at had all the lines listed, but didn't actually list which team was the favorite. I was confused but didn't care enough to investigate it any further as it's Hawaii and LA Tech.
LOUISIANA TECH IS NOT A NOBODY FEAR THE BULLDOGS IN JOE AILLET STADIUM
I bet the over and for Hawaii. The over is not looking great right now though.
La Tech looks like old-school New England Patriots. I like them just for that.
Gonna see a La Tech WR get 25 receptions for 400 yards like Troy Edwards got against Nebraska?
Either way gotta love a Troy Edwards reference - boy was that guy a bust for the Steelers.
Is it just me, or does a Wednesday night game featuring Hawaii seem stupid?
They had to have flown in Tuesday, or at least I'd imagine. It's at least a 9 hour flight from Hawaii to Dallas, but I assume they fly right in, so probably 9.5-10 hours. With time changes, if they left at 7am, they'd get in around 9:30 or 10pm at night. I doubt they fly over night and disrupt players sleeping schedule the night before the game.
The flight back wouldn't be as bad, as leaving around 8am gets them back around 2pm. But still, that's 3 days of class missed.
Hawaii has been on the mainland for a couple of days. They stay in a Dallas suburb for two nights and go through final practices there.
But, otherwise, yeah its stupid to have them on a Wednesday. Hawaii needs to be on at 12:30 Sunday morning every week for the late night chase special. Thats where it belongs
I have no idea why this post was negged.
Long balls intercepted inside the 10 yard line are about the best turnover one can commit. As far as turnovers go and the chances of scoring on any given drive, this in terms of field position is a pretty good deal...if it has to happen. Not in the present case, but I always love when DBs intercept the ball 40-50 yards down field on a fourth and 10 play instead of knocking it down...
Lou Holtz laugh is burning holes into my ears.
We interupt this Karl Malone interview to bring you a possible scoring drive. First, these commercials.
The Hawaii QB just got trashed by that Tech D-lineman.
have a uniform with more blue? I can swear as a child I saw them with a Red jersey/Blue pant uniform, or something to that order? Anyone know for a fact?
He just got annihilated again. Holy crap that was a hit.
That guy is not coming back into this game.
Hawaii's QB just got ABSOLUTELY DRILLED.
That guy might not know where he is 2 weeks from now.
I can't believe mark may thinks that there should have been a flag. It wasn't late, didn't appear helmet to helmet. Looked good to me. Maybe they should start wearing flags. sheesh.
I could see what he's saying. There was obvious helmet to helmet contact. What he neglects is it to be directed helmet contact. The guy went to hit with his shoulder/chest and helmets knocked as a result of it. I think it was the right call to waive it off.
Tech's RB is having one hell of a nite.
Dooley's son is building a respectable program down in Louisiana.. Their schedule is tough, but the kid can coach quite well.
