People believe that the coaches challenge is a great advancement in college football. I think it stinks.
Don't get me wrong, I believe that if a coach thinks a bad call was made, then let the officials know. But don't rely on an official way up in the booth.
Let the coach decide whether or not the play was a complete and/or an incomplete pass.
For example, the Ball State University Cardinals, intercepted a pass, according to the officials, about two minutes before the game ended.
Suddenly, the officials in the booth decide to review the play. It seemed that the pass was an incompletion. The ball hit the ground just as the defender pulled it in. What are the chances?
The official review was that the pass was an incompletion. Central Michigan fans scurried back to the stands once they heard the official ruling.
To all BSU fans watching in Muncie, Ind. this was a bad sign.
For the first time this season, their team was 10-0, and on their way to a berth in the Mid-American Conference Championship game. Then, all of a sudden, it seemed that C. Michigan had beaten the No. 17 ranked team in the nation.
However, Sean Baker determined the fate of the Cardinals.
Just when it seemed that the game was over, Baker intercepted Dan LeFevour's pass, the Chippewas only turnover.
For an offense that seemed unstoppable, Baker and the Cardinals seemed to put a stop to the two time defending MAC champions.
Quarterback, Nate Davis' four touchdown passes, and halfback MiQuale Lewis' 177 rushing yards proved that the BSU Cardinals were indeed the superior team in the MAC.
The Cardinals will face W. Michigan[9-2] on Nov. 25. The outcome of the game will decide who will represent the MAC West.

The Cardinals have certainly looked good this year, on both sides of the ball. Nate Davis has one of the best arms in college football. The thing that amazes me about him is his ability to roll out one way and throw hard and accurate, against the grain. You can't teach that, it is a talent..
