Bet I watch some of it....


i'm actually interested in watching Antonio Andrews. Andrews finished the regular season with 2,997 all-purpose yards, the most in the nation and the third most in NCAA history.

Granted he wasn't playing against SEC level competition, but it's still impressive.

The other 'back story', is that WKU lost their coach to USF and hired Bobby Petrino starting next year.

I'm taking WKU and giving the points. :)

Central Michigan doing a much better job of keeping this game close than I ever thought they could.

Can't figure out that call to go for it 4th and 2 instead of going for the field goal and a tie. Maybe they have a big party planned right after the game?

You play to win the game.

Seriously, it's the Pizza Bowl, not the title game. Go for the win.

I'm not sure Little Caesar's can legitimately be called "pizza."

OK, but I wouldn't have minded watching a little overtime. Since there is no hockey, I'll take any port in a storm (except the NBA).

They're trying to suck up to Duke so they can get ACC membership.

WOW!!!! What in the world is up with the punting in these bowl games?!?! The Duke punter just fired a punt from his own 10 yard line that did a tightrope walk down the sideline and eventually turned in to settle at the Cincinnati 3.

They've been extremely impressive. I'm not looking forward to my team having to face them next year.

Yeah.. right after I said that... but Rutgers Defense is going to wear down against that VT front five, so it should get better again.

And the beat goes on. Horrible offensive performance by both teams. Maybe Pitt will be able to compete in football in the ACC.

I don't know how VT could play any worse...

(as I write this they finally get a couple of consecutive completions)

Can't remember the last time I wanted to drink bleach after a win. But it's a win, and any time you can beat your opponent, the oficials and your own offensive coordinator in one game, it's a success.

I swear to god, VT was modeled after the Steelers this year. Same always injured and horrible oline, same stable of mediocre running backs all splitting carries and doing nothing with them, same talented receivers that put forth no effort, same horrible offensive playcalling, same quarterback who can suck for 3 quarters and either do barely enough to win or throw the game away, same defense which was the only thing keeping the team in games, same losing to inferior opponents every week...way too frustrating to watch two teams like that as a fan.

I hope so :pop:

I'm stoked, and I'm worried. I have no idea which Mountaineer team is going to show up today. The one that dominated, DOMINATED I say, the first six weeks of the season, or the one that looked like they couldn't have even beat Duke or Wake Forest the second half of the season.

I do know that their starting 5th year senior center didn't make the trip, it'll be tough to lose a starter at such a key position, and I expect more pressure from 'Cuse up the middle on crucial 3rd down plays because of it.
