This Saturday saw the Mines football team take on a Western State team that was surprisingly tough despite their 1-6 record coming into the day.
Looking to bounce back from a tough loss last week, the Oredigger football team squared off against the Black Hills State University Yellow Jackets on the road this weekend. In another display of offensive excellence, the Orediggers rolled to a 62-22 win and a strong start to the conference schedule.
Saturday marked the start of the Orediggers 2013 football season, and they certainly started off on the right foot, routing South Dakota School of Mines 72-6.
What a game! Following the Baltimore Ravens’ stunning ride to a championship, I think we can safely dispense with the idea that home field advantage, regular-season performance, or really any other factor has any effect on who wins the Super Bowl. For the fourth time in six years, a team that began in the wild-card round ended up lifting the trophy. Regular season success is great, but it guarantees nothing and it often has led to playoff letdowns, as I am sure Peyton Manning’s Broncos can attest.
