Looks to be a good game with Ohio vs. UL-Monroe. Who else is watching? Who are you rooting for?
Independence Bowl Open Thread
saw this quite absurdly awesome headline at CNN. Damn viagra.
Ohio just got the ball and is already about to score.
I forgot about Ohio. They give the MAC a chance at a second victory and a 2-4 record.
Any mascot who takes down a buckeye is good by me. Great offensive series.
I picked ULM in this one. Great.
I did too, which is why my picks are called [Brown Juggernaut]'s Terrible Picks.
Vegas was a bit off on this one.
Mickey Tettleton's son Tyler is a pretty solid player for Ohio. He's done a pretty good job for them the last two years. Got a chance to see him in the MAC Championship loss against NIU last year and seemed to be a good player. I expected the conference to be doing a little better so far. After this game there are two more MAC teams playing.
My brother goes to NIU so I've been to the last 3 MAC championships and as long as Michigan and NIU aren't playing at the same time I'll go out to Dekalb to watch NIU play. I don't mind the MAC. They tend to have quite a few high scoring and exciting games. I'll be headed to the Orange Bowl next week which should be interesting.
I'm a realistic guy haha. I know that NIU winning is highly unlikely but it was a situation where they'll probably never have this opportunity again so I needed to make the trip down. Plus you can't beat south beach on New Years. Was originally hoping the Outback Bowl was earlier in the day on the 1st because I would have tried to make both games by going to Tampa and Miami. As it stands now its too tight so I won't be able to make it.
ULM will prevail! This play-by-play guy eerily has a similar sound to Tom Hammond...you all know who I mean.
It looks like he got the first down.
Lesson: teach your defensive lineman the value of high and tight.
When you have the ball at the one-yard line, why drop back to pass? A running play will almost certainly not lose you 10 yards.
Going for two bowl wins in a row! Makes me wish I was at Tony's or the Pub watching the game.
I like how the Bobcats have decided to in fact go big, vs. the alternative of going home
The Blankenship-Tettleton "Norman Connection" really has worked like a charm for the Bobcats all year, it seems. They do make a pretty good QB-RB combination.
And with that, Browning is safe at second for a first down. Nice baseball slide.
Woo OHIO keeps me alive in my bowl pool! I'm now just 1 game back of most people and 2 back of the leader. Still a tough hill to climb. There's a lot of people that are one game ahead of me and this was the last really big chance I had to jump a lot of them at once. Pitt is my next chance to jump a bunch of people and Rutgers tonight give me a chance to jump a few.
It's been ugly, but I live on.
