More College Football 'In Space'

All right. I’m watching the ECU - WVU game. (Way to go Pirates, all of us that live in Eastern NC are proud) The ESPN announcers keep talking about backs and reciever play ‘in space’.

Now I’m an old football player and official. When the hell did the flats, the wings, or open field become “in space”? For some reason that just befuddles me…

Haha… I use to go to CMU the last two years. We were pretty good for a small program. Lefeavour is a badass, though.
