I would agree... I missed it when it happened, but one of the guys said to rewind... I only saw the run back and said... I bet the coach is saying "NO, NO, NO.... GO, GO, GO"...

It was not until later that I saw it was a field goal and not a kickoff.... that made it more unlikely as the ball would have been on the 42 or so if he just let it go... a punt was 20 yards and KO I think 25 now...

Good point... running it out of the end zone was a high risk decision that fortunately for the player, resulted in a high reward... but I suspect the coach still might say "Please don't do that again".

Navy pretty much runs only one play -- the triple option.

So, sounds like one of the RBs could have taken on the QB position as they did not need a thrower...

And like I said before, I have no problem with what happened, just that the headline made it look like they went and took a stranger out of the stands to play... not a QB that had not suited up....

Plenty of excellent NCAA games for sure. I think that the Miss/FSU game on Monday night was the best that I saw.

How's everyone's team doing? Coogs are 5-0 ranked 5th or 6th. OU beat TCU and is ranked again. Texas lost BSU in top 20 after win.


Overall good weekend!

LSU going from a projected final 4 contender to unranked has been tough. BR shootings, great flood and a few key pre-season injuries didn't help. Loss to Wisconsin might have been different had Etling played at QB vs the inept Harris; and if final play that resulted in a touch down at Auburn had not been reviewed and determined time expired before the snap, LSU would be 5-0. Any how it looked like a very different team Saturday night sans Les Miles.

It appears that Navy has defeated the Houston Cougars 46-40. Fear the Goat!

It looks like Army is in for an even bigger challenge this year

On another front, too bad the LSU/UF game was postponed or cancelled. It can effect the SEC championship if not played. LSU offered to fly the gators to play in Baton Rouge or they would agree to come to Gainesville for a Sunday game since Saturday was supposedly impossible. Gators wouldn't agree to either option. Its a shame, as they probably could of even played the game on Saturday, as I believe Gainesville was relatively unscathed.

The Notre Dame - North Carolina game was pretty impressive. The amount of water on the field was incredible. Old time football!

I really don't follow NCAA football much but did she highlights of this game. How many fumbles were there? About 10 or 12 in the game?

Yes many turnovers and for whatever reason ND decided to keep trying to pass which just doesn't work in the kind of weather they were facing. Only touchdown was in the 4th quarter on a blocked ND punt. The fans looked miserable.
