    Default Hail Mary never works, right?

    You have to got to see this. As you guys know, I am a bog fan of James Madison University Football. They are currently ranked No. 1 in the US in NCAA Div 1-AA FCS. They have won the last two games with no time on the clock. It doesn't matter if you are a JMU fan or not, these plays are incredible.

    First two weeks ago against Richmond:

    (hang in there. The play is #1 on Sportscenter).

    Then, yesterday at Villanova:

    The NCAA FCS has a playoff system to determine a champion. Playoffs start on 11/29/08, with the championship game in Chattanooga, TN on 12/13/08 (I think).

    I can still envision the Hail Mary pass that Doug Flutie made to Gerard Phelan to lead Boston College to a victory over Vinny Testaverde and the University of Florida back in the 80's... I can't remember which bowl game it was, though

    You know, Chief, I've always wondered if Flutie wins the Heismann and goes high in thel NFL draft. I know he was good, but do you think that pushed him over the top?

    That's why football is the greatest sport on earth!

    The highs are just oh, so very, very high, and the lows are just so very, very low. And those emotions can change from sideline to sideline in mere seconds!

    So many "big" plays seem to never pan out, it is always exciting when they do.

    I will never forget that pass by Flutie to win the game.

    It was a regular season game the day after Thanksgiving against the U. of Miami (incumbent national champions). BC went on to win the Cotton Bowl that year.

    Don't count on it. Since I'm not Al Bundy I don't feel the need to dazzle anyone with HS exploits.

    I'll leave it at the point that being drafted into the Army. interrupted participation in athletics at the collegiate level. I bet you never had to worry about either one, did you?

    You once again show your predilection to making commentary with no proof.

    You don't investigate anything important, do you?

    Blah, blah, blah. Mr. No-credibility speaks. "I was a football hero"!

    I did play football and I never said I was hero. You did.
