Up 72 and under 2 minutes to go is probably a good time to take a knee and shake hands.  Sportsmanship questions aside, when a game is decided, why run five more plays and gamble with the S-A's health?

Aww heck, I got my first negative karma.  Only took a year.  Had some actual responses typed up, but I guess I'll just agree that UMHB bad...

They get easier to take after a while.  ;) Gave you another -k just to help train you to be tough.

Any day my karma is positive, just like any day I remain on this side of the ground, is a pretty good one.

You will get access once you get up to 200 comments (if Pat doesn't boot you out of here before you get that, but you have to be really obnoxious for that) I think.
And I'll switch my -k to +k since you were a good sport. Welcome to the boards.

Haha no need for the switch, I'm just here to talk football and spend an inordinate amount of time digging through game logs and stats. I also have a dream that one day I can convince them to use some of my amateur photos for the articles lol...

Might as well plug my favorite photo from last year that just popped up on Facebook memories lol...

Total offense
UMHB 566
McMurry 54
Could have run in 5th string defense and see how they perform.

You can only travel so many players. At home, yes, 4th and 5th string probably get some run, but not at an away game.
Watch out for the wreckingCRU defense!!

Can anybody explain what has happened to Southwestern? Maybe someone mentioned it, but I haven't seen it covered here. Did they lose their top 3 QB's to injury in the first 13 quarters of the season?

From the SW game summary this appears to be exactly what has happened.  The #3 QB (at seasonís open) started and was injured.

On the coaches show last night Coach Fred lamented the last TD. He said it was an option play and the QB made the right read to keep the ball. everything that follows depends on the defense and the defense made it a pass. The DB let the receiver go and the result was a touchdown. It wasn't a called pass play. they were just running the offense with QB #4 and that was the result.

Nothing to lament. It's football. If the McMurry defense couldn't stop the 3rd and 4th stringers, that's not on us.

I understand the argument but when the entirety of your posts are complaining about perceived "running up the score" where you complain about the opposing team and then say "Let's move on," I guess I don't have a ton of sympathy.
