Now that I have my random 1940s movie reference out of the way, on to the pressing issue.â†µ
The NCAA has ruled that if you play 2.9 quarters of football, the score will count but the stats won't. No, really.â†µ
College football's governing body says it will not recognize any stats from Michigan's rain-shortened 34-10 victory over Western Michigan in Week 1. Michigan gets a win and WMU gets a loss, but as far as the NCAA is concerned nothing else matters from that game.â†µ
Brandon Herron's 94-yard interception return? Gone. His fumble return for a touchdown later in the game? Never happened.â†µ
In a weird move however, the NCAA is going to let the two universities keep the stats for their school records. So, Herron's interception still stands as a Michigan record, but it can't be friends with all of the NCAA's record interception returns.â†µ
This is pretty stupid, honestly. If it counts for one, it should count for the other.
