Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl Open Thread
For being a fanbase so adamantly opposed to advertising in Michigan Stadium, we're sure doing a good job of mentioning bowl sponsorship in threads on this site.
And absurdity, of bowl season.
Makes my impulse buying and football watching much more efficient. I just secured a 30-year fixed at 5.1% over on the Franklin American Mortgage thread (only cost me 2 points!). Hoping to earn an Associates degree over here. Maybe in medical billing. CAD design, perhaps. Dunno. Maybe I'll wait till 3rd quarter to declare my major.
Or bought a helicopter?
In an upset over themselves
confidence pick, with Nebraska over UW. Unfortunately I forgot about the dang bracket until it was locked and all my picks were in order. Ugh. Now I know why I never gamble, I feel like Sisyphus.
I'll miss the cgi whales flopping out of the ocean like dolphins with rocket boosters attached to their behinds during the Pacific Life commercials.
Please tell me I am not an army of one on this?
I was a fan too. Much better than getting an MBA online.
Jet propelled marine mammals.
(Cue hockey vid)
Will be effectively over by the time the other one ends.
Not so fast
Bridgeport Education has taught me to drink Vernors and Capt Morgans this fine evening...god bless those bport education people.
OMG never tried it...but am right now and very yummy!!!
It's cream soda-ish!!!
I miss the whale and his terrifying drinking game.
Sec 0-1, Big 12 1-3. Is that right?
how does a 10-2 team get matched up with a 6-6 team?
I think it's because the Holiday Bowl is supposed to match the Big 12 and the Pac 10. And other than Oregon and Stanford, the Pac 10 is GOD awful.
Would you say that the ACC is better, overall, than the Pac 10?
In the bowls so far. Do have the VT/Stanford match-up still. (Miami/ND becoming kind of intriguing tomorrow).
Do you cheer for the cocky felons (Miami) or the arrogant ones (ND)...
Better? I don't know. They're about at an equal level of suck.
Ouch. Thanks. I love your videos.
Do i cheer for for the underdog in washington? Making the Big 12's bowl record even worse?
Or cheer for Nebraska cause they are essentially apart of the Big 10?
Never cheer for Nebraska. Never!
How important is Todd McShay's happiness to you? I'm rooting for Nebraska based solely on my hatred of his humungous ties.
I'll have trouble deciding which B10 coach I dislike more: Beilema, D'Antonio, or Pellini. Go Huskies.
Just curious what you have against Pellini already?
very kind to chewing gum.
In all seriousness, he and Carl were asses when Texas beat them last year. Tough loss, but suck it up. They were asses again when they were called for something like 15 penalties against A&M early this year. Again, tough loss, but when the Chancellor of your university calls you out publicly, you've crossed the line. The incident with Martinez on the sideline in that same game is another one that sticks out ... guy just strikes me as a hot-headed ass.
Indeed. But Pelini is also a former Buckeye. So he sucks regardless.
Skip ahead to 5:32 to see Greg McMurtry burn Pelini for a TD bomb in Columbus...
closed, then. Bo Pellini, owned by Greg McMurtry and, to add injury to insult, now officially at the top of PhillipFulmersPants' most disliked B10 coaches for 2011.
Thanks for the footage!
uconn's womens bball team is down 6 with 3:35 to go over on The Deuce
can't say I did.
You know, if you have ESPN, odds are you have ESPN2. If you wanted to see it, with all your promotion of it ESPN, we'd have switched. Because I'm sure your bowl audience is the same. Stop shoving it down our throats.
Of course, this probably means start the Stanford coach to Michigan rumors. I don't know if it's for women's basketball, or men's basketball, or football.
Washington ahead, 10-0. I didn't think the first quarter would look quite like this.
I'm counting NE as part of the B1G already. Go huskers.
But this MAY be the last time I'll ever root for the Children of the Corn. (I'd say the first, but I actually used to like them vs. the Miami's, FSU's, Oklahoma's of the world, before they sold their soul to stop losing bowl games).
Makes you wonder how bad Texas must be to go 5-7.
There have been 32 Holiday Bowls. The Dog has covered in 22 of them with 12 outright upsets
UW up 10-0 after one quarter?
Sounds about right
They're already preparing for Big 10 play!!! :)
