You would be wrong!
Our stalwart heroes sent the Chippewas of CMSU home in a waaambulance Saturday, toying with them by allowing them to come within a touchdown of victory before ruthlessly snuffing an onside kick attempt and keeping the universe in balance with a 30-25 win.
The paragons of virtue began their 'Cat and mouse game early, raising false hopes in the breasts of the Mt. Pleasant crew by missing an extra point following their first touchdown. Then, like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, they continued to allow CMSU to pull close through the first half before storming out to a 30-13 lead in the second. Then, in what some might call cruelty but which actually demonstrated NU's magnanimous nature, Central was allowed two scores to build up their self-esteem and confidence, before the natural order reasserted itself and Chippewa hopes were dashed.
Ethicist and human-rights activist the Dalai Lama commented on how Central fans might feel after the back-and-forth scoring tactic: "It's a hard world. Get used to it."
Next week, conference play begins as Your Mighty Ones journey to the University of Minnesota to make fun of the Golden Gopher's buck teeth.
