I’m not an expert on every sport played on this planet of ours, but I can’t think of a single one where a final score of 76-0 is at all commonplace. Maybe that’s a normal cricket score? Can anyone tell me what a normal score in cricket is?
Anyway, that 76-0 is the count by which the Buckeyes bulldozed the Florida A&M Rattlers last Saturday. Some may point to that as an embarrassment for the Rattlers, but I would argue that Urban Meyer’s squad should feel more shame.
At least FAMU – a Football Championship Subdivision school from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) – was paid the tidy sum of $900,000 to endure the Buckeye beat down. That check will go a long way towards funding the Rattlers’ 10 other varsity teams. Schools like FAMU surely don’t like to engage in this practice that amounts to little more than selling the bodies of their players, but they recognize it as a necessary evil for smaller Division I college football programs.
