    Anyone ever see a bigger meltdown to lose a game than the one by Marshall right now? (aside from a Saints game :grin: )

    Providing Akron hits this 43 yard field goal and converts this gift of an opportunity form Marshall.

    Wow, Akron did it. Never seen anything like this... 3 mins to go and Marshall is winning 28-14.

    Akron proceeds to score touchdown and then gets onside kick.

    Akron scores second touchdown on 4th and 10, an amazing catch in corner of endzone to tie game 28-28.

    With 47 secs Marshall gets ball back. Marshall goes three and out. Marshall kicker bobbles the snap and fumbles.

    Akron recovers with 6 seconds left.

    Akron kicks field goal as time expires. 31-28. Ballgame.

    Man...I wish I had seen that. I flipped to ESPN and saw it was 28-14 with about 4 minutes left, figured it was over, and kept going. :mad:

    I caught the very end of the game. Did I hear the announcers correctly? Did they say that the punter who drop the snap and set up the game winner was also the field goal kicker and missed all 3 FG attempts in that game. Sucks to be him! Man, I thought that the OSU kicker was a serious goat in our first game. It is pretty amazing that anyone could feel even worse!

    Glad to here about it. I'm still upset that Marshall backed out of our game last year.
