5. The Mike Glass game
So he was frustrated after he played his heart out and the dream of winning a bowl game was gone.
EMU QB Mike Glass completed 28-of-50 passes for 311 yards and two scores with a pick, and he led the team with 83 rushing yards and a touchdowns. But he’ll probably be mostly remembered now for the shots he connected on late …
Obviously there’s no place for that in a civilized society, but with the way the emotions were running high, and considering how he carried the EMU offense with play after play, the shots by Glass weren’t the end of the world.
Unfortunately, it’s what people are going to talk about. It’ll be what’s referred to on the talk shows.
And forever, this will be that bowl when the guy through the punches.
