I had time to watch Wayne State play Pittsburg (Kan.) State in the Division II title game.  It started well for the Tartars Warriors with Wayne running the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, then intercepting Pittsburg on their first series.  Pittsburg (I'm not sure whether a gorilla mascot is inventive or silly) turned the game around late in the first half, first when their defense blocked a field goal and returned the ball for a touchdown, then, just before halftime the announcer called tight end Bristan Kelley open in the end zone for six.  He's a transfer from Northern Illinois, initially recruited for basketball.  Gives cause for appreciating Pittsburg's win.  In Division II, coaches still have to request reviews, none of this automatic review stuff.
