    ***K MICHAEL DYER
    Mississippi State slips past upset minded Arkansas State on last minute heroics

    Starkville, MS - Coach HackGolfer and the Bulldogs had a tough time with Arkansas State over the weekend. The cinderella story team from last season still has some leftover magic as they almost found a way to overcome the clanging cowbells and steal a victory in Mississippi. One might think that the Bulldogs were looking ahead to next week's bout with LSU, which may be the case, but no one told Michael Dyer that he was playing for a "second-rate" team.

    The first quarter was a sloppy one on both sides of the ball, as three of the four Bulldog possessions ended with turnovers, including a FUM-TD by CB Andrew Tryon on a QB draw up the middle. Arkansas State jumped to a quick lead on the second play from scrimmage as Michael Dyer found daylight and 75 quick yards. The Bulldogs would answer back after throwing an interception and forcing a three-and-out as WR Ricco Sanders took a screen pass the distance and make the game at 7 apiece. Enter the shit storm. Two more turnovers and a punt led to 13 points and a 20-7 hole.

    Game over, right? A pissed off walk to the other side of the field brought some inspiration to the Bulldog offense which went on a 27-3 scoring run until late in the 4th quarter. Arkansas State conjured up some more of their magic as a tipped pass at the goal line resulted in INT number 2 on the day, and potentially saving the Red Wolves defense from allowing a nail in the coffin. Down 34-23 with just over two minutes left, Arkansas State needed a miracle to fight back into this game. (Read As: The CPU logic will need to do whatever the fuck it needs to do to win, even if it breaks all of Newton's laws of physics.) A few long QB scrambles put Arkansas State at first and goal, and a few short plays later WR Earl Lucas made a daring one handed grab over the middle for the score. State would fail the 2-pt conversion and trail by 5 with 1:25 left in the game.

    Time for the most unsuccessful play in College Football, the onside kick. Mississippi State marches their hands team on the field, grinning from ear to ear that a simple recovery and a few kneel downs would ice the game for good. NOT. The Arkansas State kicker who was erattic on kick-offs all day, places the perfect onside kick in between three Bulldog players who froze, only to watch the Red Wolves fall on the ball. And then these two plays happened:



    You have got to be kidding me! Another failed 2-pt conversion, but the damage has been done -- Arkansas State takes the lead 35-34 with two scores within 20 seconds in the last two minutes of the game.

    Not so fast my friend! Mississippi State's Coach HackGolfer conjures up a little magic of his own. With his little whiteboard and marker, Coach HackGolfer came up with the perfect streetball play. Actually, he had been drinking since the 1st quarter, so the play ended up looking like this:

    So QB Tyler Russell took it upon himself to call the perfect play. And the perfect play, he called. WR Joe Morrow ran a streak down the right sideline, and was completely forgotten about by the CB and safety. A wide open catch and a race for the end zone ended with a Bulldog game clinching touchdown. WHEW!

    Pitt Wins a Thriller!
    [​IMG]
    This game showed the true fight that these 2013 Pittsburgh Panthers have. The game started of very badly for Pitt as Maryland would score 17 unanswered points to start the first half. The Panthers would respond back with a FG as time expired in the first half. Both teams would play strong D in the third quarter with the only score being another Pitt Panthers FG. This FG would make it a 11 point game. In the fourth quarter the Panthers would rally. It would begin with a good drive finished off with a 14 yard TD pass from Myers to Carswell. Pitt would go for 2 and they would convert on a curl route to Jones. The Terps would get down the field but would not be able to punch it in for a TD and they would have to settle for a FG. Pitt would have to run the two minute to pull out a W. Myers would throw two deep balls into double coverage and they would both be caught one was to pick up a major 1st down and the other was on 4th and 18. This pass would end up being the game winning TD.

    Final Score:
    Pitt 21
    Maryland 20
    Play of the Game
    The game winning 48 yard TD pass to Jones
