You Lost… I SAID, YOU LOST

Smooke goes for it!

As long-time readers know, I hate college sports, I do however make an exception for the SUNY Maritime Privateers out of Throgs Neck, NY. I EAT, DRINK, LIVE Privateers. But even me, the most rabid SUNY Martitime fan EVER thinks that their last game wasn’t quite fair.

Playing Gallaudet University, SUNY barely eked out a 27-0 victory over the weekend, holding the Gallaudet “offense” to under 200 yards, the first time the Privateers have done so since 2006. QB Michael Smooke smoked the defense throwing for a career high 191 yards with a touchdown adding in another three rushing TDs, while James Spanopolous led the team in rushing with 119 yards in 29 carries.

The key to this game was time of possession, with the Privateers eating up nearly the entire second quarter with only one drive. Gallaudet really only had one drive, in the 4th, where they threatened until the ferocious SUNY D stood up and stripped the QB of the ball. In Gallaudet’s final possession they also tossed up an interception, allowing SUNY the chance to run out the clock en route to SUNY’s first EVER three win season. WE DID IT! HOORAY!

Sure, it was accomplished against a team of players who are deaf, but hey, it still counts. Personally I’m really interested in how Gallaudet runs their team. How does the QB hike the ball? What about defensive adjustments on audibles. I mean, wouldn’t it just make sense to audible constantly at the line if you were the opposing team?

Eh, who cares, MARITIME WON! Who wants to go take out the goalposts with me?!
