Georgia Southern 26 Maine 18
Wonder if the AD will go ham on the NCAA for this mess at Kent State for field hockey. Maine should be awarded a win.
I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
Maine Hockey Love it or Leave it

Ah. Well Temple doesnt deserve to lose either.
Why wasnt it simply a tie? They canít have ties in that sport? I see about 1 tie per year in D3 baseball or softball on account of darkness in extra innings, whats the difference here? Tie seems like easy fix that wouldve drawn a bit less national ridicule to Kent State
Of note from his statement:
"While it is well known Kent State University had indicated back in May the field was not available after 10:30 am, it is also clear that there is a full executed contract authorizing a 9:00 am start. Once you allow a game to commence, you are obligated to allow the game to continue to conclusion.

The game began at 9 a.m. and both schools had in May been informed that they would need to vacate the field by 10:30 a.m. due to fire marshal regulations, even though the fireworks didn’t start until noon.
However, Ralph said the written contract for the game had no mention of a 10:30 a.m. stop and that Kent State failed to communicate what steps would be taken if the game was still in progress at that time.
Kent State Director of Athletics Joel Nielsen on Monday issued a statement with an apology to all involved. “On behalf of the Kent State University athletic department, I would like to apologize to the University of Maine and Temple University for the decisions made surrounding the field hockey contest,” he said. “In hindsight, a different decision should have been made to ultimately ensure the game reached its conclusion. We hold ourselves to a very high standard and, in this situation, we failed.”
The National Field Hockey Coaches Association issued a statement condemning Kent State’s actions.
This is off topic, but thought others would enjoy our biggest alum getting face time on talk shows. He really is amazing.
The lady field hockey got a W against BU today.
Ok, its sort of hockey talk.
In the meantime, he's in bed with the very same Chinese "investors" that Trump is feuding with, in his own back-***-ward State of Kentucky.
You can look that up.
