In Morgan State's final game of a disappointing 2005 season, the Bears were passed and run over by an offense like a diesel truck - the license plate read "SCSU." Morgan State (2-9, 1-7 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) showed everyone in attendance last night - and watching on ESPNU - why it was ranked 99th out of 116 I-AA teams defensively, letting South Carolina State (8-2, 6-1) drive the length of the field for touchdowns on its first three possessions of a dreadful 65-15 game that the Bears were never really in. "At this juncture, you're not really playing for anything other than pride and respect," Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley said.
