Remember that pop quiz? The answer is … playoffs! – “The presidents and chancellors in the MEAC have decided to maintain their automatic spot in the FCS playoffs, scrapping a proposal to create a bowl game that would have taken the conference out of the national title picture.”
As we all know, the Griz recently decided to forgo dropping the “C” to get wid the “B”.
Today we know why. One word – facilities.
At least that’s the reason that jumps out at us, as the I-A report goes public.
The 221-page study compiled by the firm NACDA Consulting last summer and made available to the Missoulian last week by UM athletic director Jim O’Day has some eye-opening findings.
The study calls for new academic study rooms, . . . → Read More: Montana’s FBS obstacle – facilities
Apt – “Smith is trying to become the fourth Appalachian State player selected over the last four drafts after the Mountaineers had no players picked in the previous six drafts. The school’s latest draft pick, Armanti Edwards, went in the third round to the Panthers last season.”
Maybe it’s the inferred smug sense of entitlement, or just lingering misery, but the opening lines of this otherwise suh-weet App State documentary just make us frowny face.
We do luuuh-uve the shot of Wilcox telling players to “get nasty.” And at 11:34, well …. /stands and applauds

Non-profit – “The Fiesta Bowl’s board of directors commissioned an investigation into the chief executive’s personal fiefdom, finding instances of personal and political corruption which could lead to criminal charges and may threaten the bowl’s non-profit status. These findings are awful, especially considering the revenue comes directly from the pockets of students and taxpayers.”
Dude. Exit quote, “Well, there you go…March SADNESS! …. You hate children.” What is it with Yankees? – “State officials said Friday that basketball hoops, located on the edge of private property but facing the street, violate the state’s Free Zone law, requiring the area immediately next to the pavement in subdivisions be free of obstructions.” Is Delaware now the worst state for sports?
Stupid – “N.C. State officials sent an ultimatum to tiny Loyola University in New Orleans: Get over calling yourself the Wolfpack. The Jesuit school has called itself the Wolfpack for more than a half-century, but N.C. State says it owns the exclusive legal right to use the name and logo.” Next!
Goodbye – “Two more Wofford football players have been kicked off the team and out of school, bringing the total number to five since the beginning of February. “They broke the rules, team rules,” Wofford head Mike Ayers said. “And they were dismissed from school as well.” The other three were deleted due to either first-degree burglary and grand larceny charges(!), or violating the school’s honor code.
App State and Cornell play back-to-back games today, as impending Mother Nature actions force the contraction of the series. App State won Game 1, 8-3, in a game marked with high wind and below zero chills. Ahhhhh … baseball weather. Game 2 today at 2.
