Dr. Dick Doyle, Proffessor of History. Right?  ???

Do I win? Huh? Huh? Huh?   ;D

Dr. Richard Doyle, indeed.

Yes, you win, win, win!

You may collect your booty from my solicitor John Jarndyce on Main Street in Alliance, Ohio. 

(Once all the tees are crossed and the eyes are dotted, of course.)

You have this in official Intertubes writing.

Edward

I'm underwhelmed!  ;D

Central is crushing Wartburg at halftime 42 -14.  Not much defense being played at Pella, IA today. Both teams have combined for almost 750 total yards at the half.

For one hundred trillion bazillion gazillion dollars, name the long-time Mount Union College professor who wrote his master's thesis - or was it his doctoral thesis? - on Pella, IA.

jamtod, are you sure he was talking about the same 97-0 game your were?🙂 If he wasn't such an imaginary scenario like that is indeed running up the score. I also agree with you about a 3rd string lineman scoring a TD as you describe. If it was a 3rd string RB, not so, IMO.
Anyway, in the spirit of that famous phrase "I think we have beaten this dead horse enough."🤪😬🙂

My post from earlier.


I think I've talked enough about Mount's philosophy on scoring in blowout games.
I wanted to express my opinion and, hopefully, make for some discussion. I have accomplished both of those objectives. Thanks for the responses whether you agree with me or not.
Good luck to all of our Dlll teams as the season progresses. Go Dlll 🏈 ❗️

Dead horse! 🐎🔫

MUC57:
I am not qualified to be President of our club because I am not smart enough nor have the talent to come up with the great and hilarious lines that you and all the others do!😁

Formerd3db

Aw, come on doc. You MUST have the talent. And I bet you're a real "cut up". Get it? Real "cut up"! Take my wife - please. Oh, that Henny Youngman! But I digress.
Good luck to Hope Saturday. Go get 'em!  ;D

First. Let's be clear when we say, "running up the score". The phrase certainly has an unpleasant connotation. Here's A real life example. A team leads by 50 some points. After several passes, a TD is scored. The team goes for the 2 point conversion and makes it. Then, said team does an onside kick. Final score - 97 to 0! That's "running up the score".


I hate to let facts get in the way of a good example, and forgive me if you are thinking of a different 97-0 game that actually fits your scenario, but most of that is inaccurate. You might conclude that the actual facts are egregious which you are welcome to, but let's at least get them accurate.

1. The online onside kick in that game was attempted by St Olaf on the opening kick.
2. UST went for 2 3 different times, on the first 2 TDs (1st was unsucessful, 2nd was successful) and then mid-way through the 2nd quarter to go up 43-0.
3. The passing TD was also in the 2nd quarter and put us up 57-0. It's recorded as a 61 yard TD pass but I don't remember the exact scenario. Olaf couldn't stop us so it very well may have been a screen pass. It was the only play on that drive.
4. If you want to make your case, you are better off focusing on the rushing TD scored by a backup (3rd string?) senior offensive lineman to make it 97-0. After the score, we did not attempt the extra point, which in the original box score may have been reported as a failed 2-pt attempt.

Thanks for your comments. If I made any mistakes, I certainly apologize. I' m going by memory, not so good any more, and stories passed on by others. However; I do know a lot of people were pissed off, people closer to the game than me. I think you must admit, Caruso is a little less than a saint.
I do remember the 2012 Stagg Bowl. At the end? Do you?

Anyhoo, best to St. Thomas as you move forward. Hope all goes well and works out to be what's best for the school and the students.  :)

There is something to be said for not going 'overboard' with scoring.  Mount Union had 42 points with more than half of the 2nd Quarter left to play.  They could have scored 100+ points.  They are also in a place where they need to let their 1's play as long as possible.  They also need to keep the futures hungry.  I suspect part of the reason that Plunk was in, in the 2nd Quarter, was so that he could score and play with the top players on the team.  The coaches will figure out a way to sub in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th string when the game gets out of hand early.  This allows these players to play and not worry about scoring.  Also, don't forget that a lot of the players that are out there in the 4th, are lineman etc... They get to have the live reps against other teams, and it makes no difference to them how many points are scored while they are out there.  U

I agree with the concept of not running up the score.  I really can't imagine that other teams players or coaches are that offended when Mount or any other teams intentionally do not score.

I like much of what you say. It makes sense. However; just a couple things.

First. Let's be clear when we say, "running up the score". The phrase certainly has an unpleasant connotation. Here's A real life example. A team leads by 50 some points. After several passes, a TD is scored. The team goes for the 2 point conversion and makes it. Then, said team does an onside kick. Final score - 97 to 0! That's "running up the score".

Second. A casual survey was taken some years back. Out of 33 coaches around the country who responded, 30 said not scoring was "a slap in the face". Does this mean all coaches don't care for Mount's style? Of course not. But some do!

I will probably get hammered for my comments, but, what the hell. I'm old. I don't care. I WILL speak my mind.

Pat Coleman, I'm sure, said it best. Does the phrase "catch-22" ring a bell?

GO EVERYBODY! 🏈 🍺

The problem for Mount is that, as Pat mentioned regarding JCU and the 9 vs. 12 ranking, there is a sizable gap between the very top and even the 9th ranked team.  That gap when you're playing an OAC bottom dweller is ridiculous.  You can play your 3rd string and do nothing but hand off and you're still going to score because your opponent is still athletically over-matched by the 3rd string.  Plus they're tired and demoralized versus a fresh 3rd string who rightfully wants to go 100%.  So what do you do?  The opponent physically cannot stop you.  LK opted to stop himself and VK does the same.  I'm fine with that choice.  I would also be fine with it if you just handed the ball off, took your time between plays, etc.  As long as you're not out there throwing bombs and running trick plays up 50 I don't think coaches/players/fans would have an issue with it from the other side.

Dr. Acula

Imagine this scenario, because it HAS happened.

Your son is in his senior year. He has been on the team since he was a freshman. Never got playing time, or at least not much. He gets put in the game as a running back. His big chance! He gets the handoff, runs around left end and breaks into the clear. No one between him and the end zone. A sure TD. But instead, he runs out of bounds. Guess he'll never get the chance to score for his team.

As I said above, this occurred before. How's that feel to you and to your son?

There are obviously 2 sides to this issue. I'm merely stating my opinion. Go Raiders!   8-)  :)

"Dlll Levity Club"? I didn't know that. May I be treasurer? You, of course, may be president.
This club could be fairly large. I'm sure we have many "mature" posters.
Since this organization will represent many teams across the country, I'll simply say
                GO EVERYBODY!   🍺 🏈 🍺
