The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — Appalachian State can’t possibly forget scoring 61 points and losing to North Carolina last year by two points.

The last minute of the game saw App State score a TD with 31 seconds left; instead of going for the tie, they missed a two-point conversion, then gave up a KO return touchdown on an onside kick, only to get the ball back and score with :09 seconds left to cut the lead to two. Just to stick the fork in their eyes one more time, for the second time in 31 seconds, the Mountaineers missed the two-point conversion to lose. Yeah, that’s not going to be forgotten.

Incredibly, Coach Mack Brown’s teams historically struggle in games coming off a revenge win, going 3-15 ATS in the last 18 tilts, including 0-5 ATS at home.

With the Mountain Men 9-1 ATS as a dog, you know the deal.
