Disappointing 1st half of season, but still many things to play for in 2017


Not a conference championship or even a second-rate beef restaurant-sponsored bowl game against a 7-5 MAC opponent. Lord no. Maybe in theee years for the bowl, and probably not in my lifetime for the conference championship. But here are some records we might truly achieve this year:

* highest average margin of loss in a season by a team that didn’t lose half its players to accident, diarrhea virus or felony convictions.

* most yards allowed by an FBS team with 11 defenders, none of whom has a prosthetic leg, hook arm or peg head.

* most allowed plays of 80 or more yards, breaking last year’s mark.

* fewest times cannon shot for a season.

* most TDS allowed in which closest defender cannot be seen in the same TV screen as the scorer.

* most utterly stupid penalties 5 or more full yards out of bounds.

* most dropped passes in a season (might already have that record).

* most collective winces when Sirk runs into a linebacker.

* largest third-quarter tailgate party on record.

* most meaningless debates between the pro-Ruffians and the anti-Montgomery forces.

Those thinking the season is over just don’t have the right perspective.
