I don't really think that calling it the St. Petersburg Bowl makes it sounds any more traditional. Southern Miss vs. Louisville. When they ain't fighting in a dance off, they are apparently playing football.
spoiler alert: i linked this
I like this one better.
This is where contests like College Bowl Mania come in handy. I have 33 on Louisville (not really sure why, thinking about it now), so I have a lot more interest in this game than I normally would.
What the hell is Beef O Bradys?? At least we got car insurance backing our bowl game.
our bowl game...crashes
A poor man's BW3 that is located randomly throughout the South
Wow, this whole time I thought Beef O'Brady's was something like a store-brand Chef Boyardee...
So uh, Southern Miss looks good and Louisville does not. Charlie Strong, what are you doing?
I've got a 30 point confidence on Southern Miss. No reason really...but it looks good so far.
Desmond Johnson is pretty fast and the Southern Miss band is incredibly unenthusiastic about that touchdown.
If Southern Miss scores again, will these be the lowest replied to open threads?
This is looking good in my and Southern Miss' favor so far.
We are splitting posters! FA's silence is causing us potential posters!!! When will he speak?!
Anyways some points I have noticed so far.
Lou Holtz is just as annoying without seeing his face.
Louisville has a 6'9" WR!
Thank goodness there aren't playoffs because it would ruin the attendence to this game!
Louisville must have really pissed off Southern Miss at the dance off!
You dare the wrath of the great and powerful Oz?
Been working the night shift to fix up rooms now that the kids are gone for holiday break. Kids who flick boogers on walls shouldn't be allowed to attend college.
For your booger troubles...
Man, I was disappointed when I found this out. I was hoping it'd be beef jerky sticks. OH YEAH! SNAP INTO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A neighborhood pub in the parking lot of a mall. you know, where friends gather.
... Red Snapper.
I just had red snapper for dinner.
Louisville is drawing S Miss into the Big East suck.
FACT*: The original name was Uncle Jim's Family Feedbag
FACT II**: Beef O'Brady's says friendly, All-American cooking
* (Not necessarily a fact)
Do they have one of those deep fryers that can flash fry a buffalo in 40 seconds?
Here is a little gift of schadenfreude for you: Sucks to be them!
B.J. Cunningham out for Citrus Bowl.
Has anyone noticed that Lou Holtz is even worse as an announcer than a studio host. When is it going to end?
Yes. I thought not seeing his face would be better. I was wrong. Hopefully ND hires him back soon.
you have brought some strange things to my attention over the past year or so, but this is by far the strangest.
Come on Louisville
Looks like the theme of the bowl season will be besting my previous effort the night before of worst pick ever
I'm with you. This one seemed obvious to me for Louisville. Hopefully they have it back together.
Is USM wins then I'll be 4-0.
One day I hope to watch the Garden State Brickface and Stucco Bowl.
With that said, Mr. Auriemma, would you like to coach at Michigan?
since i have a penis, i suppose i am obliged TO BE VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS according to coach A.
That catch was fucking sick.
Checks pool picks...
WOOOO So Miss!!!
That catch was awesome.
That food looks awful, even though it's fried.
Beautiful catch. From a QB no less. I'm a fan
Now, wouldn't an NCAA football playoff system just ruin the time-honored tradition of bowls like the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl St. Petersburg, the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, and the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl?
Ladies and gentlemen, your 1981 Blue Bonnet Bowl Champion Michigan Wolverines!
Lets run that same play to Denard.
Denard would catch it with his shoelaces. Yea, he is that good.
Late to the game. Let's go So. Miss. I never pick against them and it always seems to work.
Brett Favre is going to start after halftime.
Is Jenn Sterger there too? SUPER AWESOME if so.
My little sister is distracting me from my game. She went to the parents house a few days early to find my great grandmother is staying at the house too. The things said tonight:
DAMMIT SOUTHERN MISS, YOU'RE SCREWING MY BOWL PICK'EM
I have a whole lot of "wow" to describe all three of those scenarios. My Grandmother used to whisper when she made her racy "comments." She was from County Wexford so the Irish accent somehow made it better. If Southern Miss loses, my wife will still be ahead of me in the mgoblog pool. None good.
i love old people...
FFFFFFFFFF UUUUUUUUUU !!!!1!!1 Louisville!
Bowl games are a lot like NBA regular season games. Every team makes at least one big run. It's hard to figure out which team is truly motivated. And, in the end, most of the games dont really mean anything. But, they can also be good exhibitions of the sport and a fun view.
Been a good game tonight. Rather watch this than anything else.
Much better than the last three bowl games.
Another plus? No Holtz during halftime. I wish Mark May would just sock him. Just once.
Meanwhile, in Pakistan, this guy is way cooler than Mark May, Lou Holtz, and the entire cast of Breakin 2: Electric Bugaloo combined:
Lville is on their way back. Let's go Cards.
I'd like to break even in record for the mgoblog pool. I got Southern Miss with 10 confidence points. I got screwed by Solich and the Mormons already.
Getting screwed by Mormons doesn't sound like a pleasant experience.
Louisville sure has the momentum right now.
I was definitely thinking the exact opposite. Southern Miss has come out driving.
+ 1 to Sun Belt refs
-1,000,000,000,000 to Lou Holtz. He gets worse as the game goes on.
Southern Miss's WRs need to plow forward instead of dancing and losing potential yards. That fake punt was closer than it should have been.
you perhaps suggesting Mr. Plow transfers to Southern Miss for even better family values?
The last throes of Tickle Me Elmo's life are disturbing.
There is a part 2 and 3...must be torture for the poor guy.
I'll always remember where I was, when I saw a Beef "O" Brady's Bowl kick off record broken.
Gisele's favorite meal.
Gisele's favorite meal. TWICE
That was a horrible call. Ball was clearly out before the Louisville player was down, clearly and conclusively a fumble. Southern Miss was just robbed of at least 3 points, maybe more.
Sun Belt refs: They never take a night off.
Wow. Good job refs. Cost Southern Miss the game with an obviously bad call. Also cost me one of my picks in my bowl pick'em. Thanks a lot.
Tonight, I love Sun Belt refs
Louisville. Such Easy Money tonight. Lulz
1-3 for the mgoblog pool
I had Louisville -2.5 and under 60. I can't believe only 3 total points were scored in the 4th quarter. Finally, I win a close call!
Someone I follow on twitter pointed this out:
Line for this game: Louisville -3. Over/Under 59. Final score: Louisville 31, So Miss 28 (!!).
Vegas wins again...
I have no doubt the Sun Belt referee conference will be at the Mirage.
This is why in the mgoblog pool, when in doubt, I used the spread to determine my confidence level on games.
Didn't the Sun Belt provide the refs for the Michigan/Nebraska game in the Alamo Bowl a few years ago?
Did any of you fine gentlemen and possibly a few ladies feel like Lou Holtz was spitting at you while you watched the game?
