Central Michigan.
Is Central Michigan a Division I team in football, basketball, or hockey?

No.
Central Michigan is a school with Division I teams in football, basketball, or hockey.

Get it?
I do. Better late then never.

No! That would only penalize the few of us that got it right!

I'm not understanding why this is so difficult. You needed to name a team. Not a state, not a school, but a team. If people aren't naming teams, then they didn't answer the question correctly.

The question asked people to name a team. I think we can take it as given that when people said "Florida State," they weren't refering to the Physics department or the Masters of Fine Arts program.

The issue of not specifying football vs. basketball vs. hockey is a closer point, but I would argue that if the question was "Name a movie with Denzel Washington," then "The Manchurian Candidate" would not be any less correct of an answer than "The Manchurian Candidate (2004 film)," even though technically you might mean the 1959 novel or the 1962 film.

If the school doesn't count for that question, that's just BS.

Clearly, by answering Boston College, I wasn't just stabbing in the dark that maybe one of their 3 teams lost a coach.

This question didn't ask for a head of state. You're getting your questions mixed up.

Oops, sorry.

Still I hate to think of The Bus trying to confirm all the heads of state that Obama has met

Since we're in this extended time-out, I'm gonna ask if I can change my answer to the last question.

TMZ reports that The Bus and his girl friend were last seen attending a Wim Wenders film festival.

I'm not playing and I was just reading through, but the question is "name a pro team" College teams aren't pro teams.

Our sheepmaster has "Pulled a Murdoch" on this game, renamed for this forum to "Pulled a Wendersfan".
