Not to get into a battle between Wesleydad and MUC, but for accuracy on the subject of the touchdown catch, I don't think luck was a part of it as I don't believe either of the MHB defenders ever touched the ball. Hill out-jumped both defenders and actually touched the ball first, sort of tipping it into the air, and then caught his own deflection as he landed.

The play was an amazing athletic play by a receiver that has proved to be highly skilled at catching the ball in difficult situations (as I had to witness vs UWO).

Unless I saw something different, both UMHB players touched the ball, but maybe I missed it.

The only aspect about that play that was "lucky", as I previously mentioned, was that it was lucky offensive holding wasn't called on Mount because it did occur.  However, I agree with Wesleydad that, IMO, the UMHB defenders touched the ball (at the very least, one of them did) and it also was not a lucky catch-it was a great catch, which great receivers do.

Not trying to belabor the luck issue (formerd3, I know you arenít saying he was lucky), but two points.
-I thought some thought Mt was lucky because MHB ďmissed the interceptionĒ, which then bounced into Hillsís hands. A careful review of the replay, especially the angle looking from the end zone toward the line of scrimmage, shows this is absolutely not the case.
-Hill deserves as much credit as a receiver can possibly get for this play. This play is no less than a Great one-handed catch we see on ESPN. The concentration needed to see a ball pass closely by two sets of hands maintaining the presence of mind to catch the tip is worth nothing less than full congratulations.

Thatís interesting Edward, I didnít hear the comments but it sure makes sense. Iím sure it hurt for UMHB to lose Josey in the first quarter, but I was surprised UMHB didnít do more to get the ball in Wilkersonís hands in creative ways. My wife and I were joking that UMHB should have sent Wilkerson deep- but behind their own offense, and then thrown it to him, giving him the field to work with.
Their traditional plays seemed to be exactly what Mt was expecting.

You are very very blessed!

Indeed I am. Thank you sir.

Wow, Ralph provided the greatest scientific explanation for an offenses inability to perform that I've ever read.
I don't know how to say this without sounding cruel, but apparently there is a big difference between brown fat and regular, my kind of fat, like four of UMHB's offensive linemen have.
I saw Mt's D take the game over in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter, as they outworked the UMHB O line.

Unless the UMHB O linemen got themselves in better shape for the 90 degree game, my guess is they'd get beat even worse by Mt.
At which point I'd imagine another scientific explanation would be shared.

Some may say Fulfordís TD pass should have been picked and as such, Mt got a bit lucky. The same applies to UMHB. Hill beat the D and was open, UMHB was a bit lucky Fulford underthrew it.

Anyone hear from Merle? Does he need bail money?
How about MUC 57- is he ok?

Not all offenses are created equal.

I fully understand that, but it's still shocking.   Mount's defense has been boom or bust all season.  Expect for last night.  That was 60 minutes of BOOM.

I never would have predicted 8 sacks for Mount and 1 for UMHB.

There is no doubt that Mt brought the D last night and likely played better than any game previously (I wouldn't know). Don't forget, Brockport sacked UMHB 4 times and St. T sacked them 6 times.
There was this thread of thought by some that UMHB was sort of holding back their O during their games. They'd jump out to a lead and then "let the D do its thing", as though they really weren't trying to score more and could if they chose to do so. I think some of what we saw last night was the reality of UMHB's offense.
If defense was all a team needed to win championships, UMHB would have finished the season undefeated.
Mt was the better team all around.

No doubt defense helps win championships, but you better have an offense.

They didn't mention it but does anybody know if TJ Josey got hurt?  He played early but I never saw him on the field again.

I saw him come off the field early in game, holding either his side or hand. It was a play he got hit going out of bounds to the offensive left.

With all due respect #43 doesnít have that typical look of a Mt Union LB, but he can play football.

Iím not sure Mt is faster, more likely in better endurance shape especially on line of scrimmage.
