Florida A&M receives the check.


September 25, 2013 - I have had mixed emotions as you know about the play for pay carnage games involving HBCU colleges. Basketball, a non-contact sport started the trend several years ago, receiving large paydays to play BCS basketball powerhouses. Football is a different animal all together a demanding physical demanding contact sport involving legal mayhem if I may describe it that way.

Last week’s poster child on this website Ohio State backup quarter Kenny Guiton threw for six touchdowns in the first half as the Buckeyes of Ohio State punished Florida A&M 76-0 before a crowd of 103,595. Guiton threw his 6 touchdowns to five different receivers.

Kenny Guiton of OSU runs to paydirt.

It was the worst defeat in the history of A&M’s storied program, starting in 1899. I guess all of that doesn’t matter to the tune of a reported $900,000 check.

Let’s see on the opening possession Guiton threw an errant pass into the end zone and was picked off by Patrick Aiken. Aiken proceeded to bring the ball out of the end and was nailed by running back Jordan Hall, which caused Aiken to fumble. The Buckeyes promptly scored on the next play.

“I got caught up in the moment I should have taken a knee” said Aiken at the Rattlers post game news conference. No disrespect to the fellow MEAC schools but against another opponent who knows he may have gone all the way. We have seen countless interceptions returned but when your opponent is bigger, stronger, and faster then yes, you take the knee!

Ohio State was favored by 50 points in this carnage match up which the Buckeyes covered in the first half!

The brutal stat line showed that Ohio State recorded 34 first downs to the Rattlers 2. 603 total yards offensively to 80 for the visitors.

Guiton was named the Big Ten’s co offensive player of the week for his efforts.

Stating the understatement of the week at his post game press conference Guiton said “I had all day to throw.”

Rattler head coach Earl Holmes not to be outdone a his post game presser stated. “We don’t want a pity party. You play the game for sixty minutes".

I digress; just wonder if it’s all worth it with these athletes who will go down in history as the team that suffered the worst beat down in history of this storied program.

Where’s the check?
