OK, I'm sure there's a lot to talk about leading up to the game between BYU and Tulsa in the Bell Helicopter (a Textron Company) Armed Force Bowl, so we might as well get an early start on breaking down the X's and O's of this one.
OK, there might be a little satire here, with some, ahem, recent open thread posts, but really, after staying up to watch the Alamo Bowl, if you're not at work anyway, is anybody going to be up before this one kicks off? (Now watch, this will cause some huge breaking news in Michigan Football that gets this bumped off the front page by noon).
I do encourage everyone to check out their website:
The multiple videos showing you that this is "not just a bowl game" would be enough, but what other 3rd rate bowl has pop up Lt. Dan, I ask you? Not just a bowl, not just a website. And a great start to a long line of games tomorr..uh, today. All of which combined will probably still not outscore the Alamo Bowl.
In the spirit of creating these threads ridiculously early, I present to the MGoPublic the Valero Alamo Bowl Open Thread. Remember, gas is a few cents cheaper at the Valero station....in Canton.
Anyhow, it's Washington (7-5) versus RGIII and Baylor (9-3) in a Pac-12 / Big 12 matchup.
ESPN at 9 PM, immediately following the sudden fun that seriously is the Champs Sports Bowl.
Hey guys, I was able to interview Ondre Pipkins today and had a few questions for him. Thought you guys might wanna take a read as he was a relatively entertaining interview: LINK
After being asked about the Green Bay Packer fans long standing tradition of mooning the visitor busses, Raiola had this to say. "I get to the stadium too early. I don't see that. But that'd be pretty awesome to see. I don't know if I want to see any of those people naked. They're not in real good shape up there." he went on to say the following about Packer fans in general, "It looks like they live a simple life. They love the Pack and that's pretty much it."
Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with Mr. Raiola. Cheese, brawts and beer are tasty, but they really don't do a lot for the waist line. Keep your pants up, Wisconsin.
Champs Sports Bowl: Florida State vs. Notre Dame
Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, Orlando, FL
Watch this video to get appropriately pumped up for the game:
Yahoo's Matt Hinton (Dr. Saturday) described the video best: "There are a thousand previews of tonight's showdown between unranked Notre Dame and barely ranked Florida State, and all of them combined fail to match the insight in this 43-second acid trip from the geniuses at Catlab, who have boiled down the matchup according to its most essential elements: Burt Reynolds, demented leprechauns, coeds shotgunning beer, Regis Philbin pumping iron, Rudy sprinting through the bowels of Notre Dame Stadium and — most importantly — noted Orlando native/FSU alum Scott Stapp squaring off against Touchdown Jesus."
