I think I am still having a hard time accepting what happened Saturday night in Tempe. The obligatory statement of apology from the PAC12 did nothing to make the Badgers or their fans feel any better. I have watched the closing sequence too many times to count. I also reviewed how long it took the Officiating crew to “spot the ball” on dozens of plays in the 2nd half—ranging from :05-:08 seconds. When Joel Stave placed the ball on the ground—there was :13 on the game clock. It’s pretty simple to do the math.
I think Purdue is in trouble Saturday at Camp Randall. The Badgers are favored by 24-points. Interestingly, Wisconsin won by 24-points last year in West Lafayette. I think I would be surprised if they didn’t match or exceed that on Saturday.
I think the Major League Baseball season is still going on. I also think the 1-game Wild Card playoff games scheduled for October 2nd (NL) and October 3rd (AL) is dramatic but wrong. At least make it a best of 3. Baseball is not a game that is designed for a single game playoff.
That’s what I think for now.
