Don't think I've ever seen anyone claim that here.
It assets that “warm weather teams” are at some major disadvantage here, and haven’t performed well, when in FACT they have the exact same record here as any other team in the playoffs. Many other posters have jumped to the same conclusion, and I’m simply pointing out that is factually incorrect.
Do you think UM would have beaten App St in good weather in that 3d round playoff game? I don't.
Both Montana and Appalachian State were impacted in that game. However, ASU is located in the mountains and can receive weather much like what blew in that day. Just a fact, the Grizzlies were beating the Mountaineers that day regardless of the forecast. They had the talent and motivation to make it happen.
