Re: UC Football 2013 ("The Afterthought Athletic Conference")
Purdue had quit midway through the 3rd quarter (those black jerseys in the oppressive heat couldn't have helped). I've never seen a team more demoralized - all the more astonishing since it's the first game with their new coach. It was only a 3 TD game at the time, which didn't reflect the gulf in class between UC and Purdue.
I think Tubberville and Gran utilized Munchie more effectively than the old regime did. That being said, I think UC wipes Purdue by 50+ if they air it out with Kay instead.
Normally, I'd get on the case of the fan base for leaving early. No complaints here for yesterday. The heat made for an especially dangerous situation, and emergency personnel had their hands full dealing with the many heat related issues among the fans. I saw more than a few students drop and at least a dozen more on the concourses being treated. UC included precautions for the heat in their pregame email, but the university was not adequately prepared to accommodate the number and severity of heat-related emergencies at the stadium.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
