    The Grand Finale.

    There was an electric chill in the Oxford air last night. Miami (1-10) played host for division leading Temple (9-2) with a lot at stake. Well, not for Miami's train wreck of a season. Miami was playing for pride, and playing for the hopes of not losing it's valued 2 star ranking.

    Temple was playing for sole possesion of the conference. A victory gives them a clear shot at the championship game, while a loss would drop them into a tie with Bowling Green.

    It took them all season to get it right, but Miami came to play. Miami won the toss and elected to recieve. Zac Dysert lead a conservative and patient drive, culminating with a 5 yard TD pass to Demarco Paine.

    He sounds fast, but really isn't. Miami chewed up 5 minutes of the clock and Temple seemed very surprised their vaunted D was pushed around early.

    After their own long drive, Temple's all-conference receiver James Mixon hauled in an 8 yard grab shortly before half time to tie the score at 7-7.

    So Lee Corso was put on stand by because there was an upset alert in the MAC.

    A missed 51 yard FG gave the ball back to Miami. On third down, RB Thomas Merriweather cut back into line, was stood up by two defenders, but used the deisel cheat card cheeze to shake out of one tackle and gorilla pimp slap the other fool, and broke free. Merriweather shocked the campus as he broke free for a 62 yard score. Miami was up 14-7!

    The usually weak Miami D wass playing the game of it's life. They were attacking the line of scrimmage, and making life difficult for Temple's O. However, QB Vaughn Charlton and RB Bernard Pierce came up huge in multiple 3rd and longs. Vaughn had an amazing escape from a sea of red shirts to pick up a cruicial first down. Pierce would make it hurt as he scampered the final 13 yards into paydirt to tie the score again.

    Both teams would trade FGs in the fourth quarter. It's 17-17 with 2 minutes left in the game. Miami took the kick and was getting ready for the biggest drive of the year.

    Miami ran almost every first down, so it seemed like a good time for a play action pass for a safe play. Before Dysert could set his eyes downfield and throw, he was hit from the backside. The ball fluttered like a butterfly forward to the wide open and all alone, Justin Gildea.

    Unfortunately, Gildea is a Free Safety for Temple. He gently welcomed the wounded duck of a ball and raced for a 27 yard TAINT. The sounds of open sobbing could be heard throughout the Yager Stadium. It was the first turnover of the game.

    24-17 Temple and you know the rest. Miami got the kick, made a few first downs, but threw a desperation pick with time running out. A kneel down later, and Temple couldn't get the hell out of Dodge fast enough.

    This game will be shown on ESPN Classic tomorrow starting at 9 AM.

    Roady had to be doin some Grade A sandbagging all year. Some Vlade Divac like flopping has picked him up some nice recruits with promises of playing time, all the while waiting to ruin Temple's run at a crown.

    Oh, if only my tale of woe would reward me with a 5 star recruit. Instead, I'm hoping to get some high end guys that really want to allow me a chance to sell out the school and move to the NFL in the middle of the night.
