Why in the hell did ASU have yellow numbers on a yellow helmet???  
And if you've seen the polite mold creature on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, his new job is apparently as Tulane's mascot.

Going to be tough to find a team that plays dirtier than this Middle Tennessee team.

Valdosta edged Ferris in the D2 NC. 

FCS NCG will be NDSU vs E Washington on Jan 5.

I had it on in the background, but started playing closer attention and I believe you are correct.
They've had 3 10+ win seasons in their history. This one, the one that got CGA the Wisconsin job, and one in between.
Local paper says he just talked to the team a little before but was mostly uninvolved with the game.
Good on the USU kids for seeing half their coaching staff say "nah, this ain't our job," and deciding to go out and kick ass anyway.

And Georgia Southern
That bowl is a reminder that even the low-end bowls provide a lot if you want to look for the good.
GSU wins on a walk-off field goal.
GSU went from great, to awful, to 10 wins again as they readopted the option. They have a fun 900-yard runner at QB, three good backs and a solid little defense.
EMU is likely the worst program in FBS, but has managed two bowls in the past three seasons. They keep playing crazy close games.

Did I stumble across a field with red turf yesterday?  I switched channels after blinking a couple of times, though my TV had fritzed.

That was horrible.

You've never seen the blood field?
That thing's been around for years with an FCS power playing on it

Gag, no, first time for me.

That should be outlawed by Constitutional Amendment forthwith.

I think I saw they have like 13 losses over the past two years, and all but 1 have been one score losses, including 5 in OT.
No clue how nobody hasn't scooped up that coach.  That has been a dormant program for three decades.  Tough to be fifth fiddle in a state that doesn't produce much talent.

Those close games suggest a breakthrough could come eventually, and then he’s gone. 
I think it’s always had to sell a guy who doesn’t have actual record success. And his has context, which is usually lost. The weirdest thing with EMU the Ann Arbor proximity. He’s done quite a job.
