Miami scored the most points in team history after it took a 77-7 lead through three quarters against Savannah State. Apparently, both teams had seen enough to speed the game up a little bit.

Football rules can be changed whenever it's convenient, I guess. If coaches will agree to do this, why not just stop these blowout games at the half? It reduces the risk of injury, the leading team probably has taken its starters out anyway and everyone -- the fans, the coaches, the players, the refs, the media members, the stadium workers -- gets to go home and eat pizza a bit earlier.

It's a good idea. Okay, it's an idea. I'm just saying, think about it, maybe.
