Or 12:30 starts! (weather delay - 2 for 2 for Sparty!)  p.s. how bad is Sparty's reputation when they were bumped from ESPN2 earlier this week for Illinois....

I would like to see Miami to get back to how they used to be talent wise - was a pretty elite program for 2 decades but really fallen off here the past 10.

Only offensive players to get injured were Reynolds, Funchess, and Johnson so yeah if it's not Reynolds, I'd guess Funchess but Hoke said that was just a cramp.

WR depth not so good right now. Gallon, Chesson, Dileo, ?. Not sure what WR will step up in Reynolds presumed absence...I guess Jackson (read:no one)

So I have DIRECTV. They are showing the Miami/UF game on ESPN and on the guide it says MSU?South Florida on ESPNU. Well, ESPN is doing to Goal Line program on the U instead. Oh, Sparty. How irrelevant you are.

Other than Oregon (because they score at will anyway and seem to almost always convert the two point conversion), I hate it when coaches do that shit. The two point conversion should only be used when it is needed, which is only in the fourth quarter. Even when the score is something like 11-9...a team scores a TD to make it 11-9 (in a quarter other than the fourth), but they go for the two to tie it. No, that is a horrible decision. Take as many easy points as you can and kick the damned extra point.

Even though the play is under review now, it would somehow figure historically that a blitz brought on by Eastern Michigan's defense would result in a 1st and goal for the other team. 

Also, it takes about half of the Eastern defense to stop Zach Zwinak, it seems. That obviously isn't going to end well for the Eagles.
