All year this team has easily covered the spread early but they biff if up late to screw me. Hoping tonight is different!
Belk Bowl Open Thread
I'm laughing in disgust.
nope. Sorry man.
What the hell is belks?
Tommy Tuberville's sorry behind? Turn around and salute the Duke coach for not leaving. . . weak.
Duke answers Cincy's 27 point run w two TDs of their own to retake the lead 31-27
Jetski accident is the most Duke way ever to hurt oneself
I picked doook to win. So far I'm 7-2 in my picks.
Hits: Potato, Beef 'O' Brady's, Nawlins, MAACO Vegas, Hawaii, Pizza, Military
Misses: New Mexico, Poinsettia
I picked two big upsets: Ball St (Loser) and OHIO! Needless to say, I really need OHIO to beat LA-Monroe.
I'm 6-3 with losses from Ball St, Fresno St., and Western Kentucky. The Ball State one set me back big. The Fresno St I could live with. The WKU one hurt. Dumb coaching decision to go for that 4th and 1 by not drawing them offsides or just running the ball.
Only four (of 33) people picked Duke in my pool, so this won't affect me that much if they win. I think it lets one person jump me and one tie with me.
So that they have the ball last
34-31 Cincy 11 min left
DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK ties it.
One more scheduled at-bat for each if they sustain long drives
Didnt that plane sink? How did they get it back? That's crazy.
Winn denied a 1st down. I suppose that if you haven't really done much, well, tackling or stopping of any kind, Duke can celebrate not letting someone get a first down. It's the small victories in these bowl games, right?
That being said, we are almost at 1,000 yards of offense between both teams in this game. Cincinnati is in danger of letting the Blue Devils punch in another one with that catch at the Bearcats' 8 yard-line.
EDIT: ....and Duke yet again loses it inside the 10. The end zone will not bite you and throw you in the basement.
DOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKK fumbles the ball at the goalline. Now it's up to their defense....
Duke still has a ton of time left.
For the TD
Cincy 41-34 42 seconds left
And i got cinci with a billion points. And yet i feel bad
I'm a few Christmas Ales in, but that color guy is pretty stupid.
and of course no one really plays defense anymore.
Jeez, bad penalty. It ain't over yet!
OK, it's over.
Well, that's an odd way to cover.
Duke really duked it there. Short mid-sack pass to a waiting defender. TD Bearcats. Game over now.
Shit. Saw that coming. Headed right for his blind side. Never had a chance.
Congrats Coach Stripling (Former DL coach at Michigan).
Duke is a betting man's nightmare? Amiright?!
It's unfortunate "redundant" is a negative moderation, in this instance.
At least we can watch Rutgers perform well on the big stage as they take on a hobbling VT in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
Dook first and goal at the Cincy 8 tied 34-all w ~1:30 to go. Cook fumbles, Cincy hits a tight end fly for a TD, then Dook gets to the Cincy 40 before a hit on the Dookie qb causes a popup to a lb who returns it for a TD.
while Duke is kicking ass in the 1st...and I come home and they lost. Man I'm feeling it right now
Thrilled that Cincinnati (one of my alma maters) won -- but wow, Duke gave them a much better game than I thought they would. Still, when you're down to a skeletal coaching staff, I bet it's rather difficult to properly oversee all facets of the game. It certainly showed here.
OK, now all I need is for Michigan State to lose, Michigan to win, and Notre Dame to be blown out, and that'll kick off my 2013 the right way.
How about that RB for Cincinnati (as previously mentioned, from Michigan)? That kid is a beast. He sees an opening and GOES. Zero hesitation. Gotta like that style.
