flagTUESDAY,  DECEMBER 16,  2014"The greatest tyrannies are always perpetrated in the name of the noblest causes."  Thomas Paine


*********** Um, with all due respect for Mount Union and all that they've accomplished over the years, I really expected more of them than what I saw Saturday.

It's a bit questionable when a team's leading its opponent 63-0, deep into the third quarter, and it throws for a score  - to make it 70-0.  But that's what Mount Union did against Wesley, in the NCAA D-III semifinal.

Okay, I thought - that's a backup QB who's earned the chance to play, and it's not really fair to tell him he can't throw the ball.

But here's the problem:  it wasn't a backup at all -  the pass was thrown by the starting quarterback.  It was his 41st pass of the day and his seventh touchdown pass.

Is this really typical of Mount Union?
