While killing time until the Duke/Texas tip, I'm checking out a little 1-AA football action. We've got the Furman Purple Paladins against the Appalachian St. Mountaineers. In situations such as this one, it's often difficult to find a rooting interest. But I used to work with a girl who went to Ap State, and I'm rooting for them because she had spectacularly giant hooters.

Ap State jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but as Purple Paladins are apt to do, Furman has battled back. They got an Alstott-esque touchdown from a big white guy, and then scored again but missed the extra point. Really, I think that's the biggest difference between 1-A and 1-AA. The quality of the kickers. And the rest of the players on the field.

Mountaineers lead, 21-13 in the 2nd.
