Didnt' get 'em earlier...

...but the Miners at Missouri S&T, had a funky little arch/stack sorta Bridge in the Mid-Con... will only say this once...ARCHES ARE SHIT WITHOUT RIGID if you're Bridge is freestanding and has no real moment resistance at the pier supports, it will bend and dip all over the place. TENSION ONLY, and even then...maybe!!!

...and what d'ya know, they failed vertical deflection...shockuh!!! Learn and be better next season Miners...Ole' Rolla used to be a kickass Team, bring it back!!!

Lookin' a bit like 2002 Clemson in style!!!
