McCrane (K) and Mueller (LB) play for New York. I haven't seen any other K-State players listed.
Mueller had a sack as well as a bunch of tackles, and McCrane a field goal.

The replays and commercials kill the college game- they both need cut down
And all of the reviews.

Sometimes on those reviews, I think they need the narrator from SpongeBob, with the French accent, saying, "Three hours later..." ;-)
They're necessary though in order to keep it fair. The game already favors about 8-10 schools. It would be worse if officials weren't held accountable for calls.

As far as the XFL. I have nothing against it. Just not interested in watching.

Sorry, I said replays- but I meant reviews. They’re good for the game but they need a way to cut down the amount and how long the reviews can take

I agree. They take way too long. It makes going to the games damn near intolerable for me. Timeouts, reviews, etc... take the flow away and sitting there waiting and waiting is ridiculous.

I agree, and fox sports is the worst for commercials- one team scores a td, kick extra point, go to commercial for 4 minutes, come back for kickoff, go back to commercials for 4 minutes and then come back to the game and resume play. It’s painful

^^ This ^^

All of the commercials is one of the main reasons I have cut way back on how many games I watch on TV. I realize advertising pays the bills, but still, it is just overkill sometimes. So much wasted time.

Truth be told, though... I think the Internet has spoiled me. It is so easy to skip over and avoid ads all together. With TV, there is a captive audience.

I know ads pay the bills, but I still record nearly every sporting event and watch the recorded version and skip thru all the ads. Most of the ads are so repetitive, I know the script for most of them. I can watch an entire NFL game in an hour with the recorded version.

More time to head to the concession stands.

4 guaranteed media time-outs per quarter. Not sure if they carry over. Not sure of the length but they're long.
