I feel like I've seen this game before somewhere. It kind of sucks with bowl tie ins how it is BCS or bust for the MWC Teams. A game against either of these teams might have gotten me down to Jackonsville for New Years.
MAACO Las Vegas Bowl BSU vs. Utah Open Thread
BSU by 17.
Giving the points?
you're giving 17, you say...
I swear to god Boise better win. I have 34 confidence points riding on this. If I lose this one, I am cooked in the pool.
There is a Beef O'Brady's in Shelby. It's just a generic chain. Very close to a Montana's or a Buffalo Wild Wing's + steaks.
Some of those regional chains are good greasy BBQ cooking (like Sonny's), or some sort. Others are generic chains. You're making it sound like the latter.
It's a step below Damon's (if you've ever eaten there) in terms of BBQ. It's generic but decent quality. If you're travelling and can't find a local place that doesn't look sketchy it's a good fall back option. Not some place I'd seek out though.
College Football, and Tweeting don't mix.
This announcing crew is going to make me kill myself by 10 pm.
"Peterson wants to strike early and often." As opposed to the coaches that hate scoring?
To win you have to score points... since when?
I couldnt bring myself to pick a side in this one. I like both teams a lot.
Boise never loses to the spread more than twice in row--they've lost 2 in a row coming--while Utah just never loses bowl games
This should be fun. I'd take the points with Utah almost every time, but one of my rules is to never bet against Boise.
When the Utes came to came to town all their fans were classy folk. So I'm routing for them all the way.
seemed too go to pass up.
I wonder if this kid will get an ESPN piece with Tom Rinaldi.
Does Musberger think before he talks? "The two players just went mouth to mouth."
You really could have stopped there. Also, no.
I love how Herbie just spent thirty seconds explaining the difference in formations and the best Musberger could do was mumble "2 and 6".
Now I find myself paying attention to the game and for Musbergerisms.
Glad he let us know the pie eating contest was a draw. I was going to lose sleep if somebody didn't fill me in.
"He's not afraid to move it over to the right side."
Because so many QBs live in terror of that side of the field and refuse to cross that hash.
As he throws at the receiver's feet, rolling to the right.
Cain had no idea the Boise kid was coming.
The Ute fan holding the "Wide Right" sign is amusing right now. Some Boise fan needs to stand next to him with a "Shank" sign.
shake and bake!
Epic dropped pass. FAIL.
At this point of the QB was filmed beating his WRs with a sock full of dimes I wouldn't really blame him. Drop city for the Utes.
Quick, switch the Utah LBs in for the receiving corps. I seriously hope this is just Utah being hyped up and they return to their blown out by TCU ways soon. It is starting to scare me a little.
What a let down so far. I expected to see decent football. Not "Who can have the most impressive screwup?".
If you would have told me Utah 3-0 at the end of one with three turnovers (two from Boise) and dropped passes galore, I would have told you to put down the hookah.
Is there a decent hookah place in AA ever since Oz closed? That one place on South U has them, but not a liquor license to go with it IIRC.
Haven't been there in about two years. There is however one where I live now. Well actually it is an upscale Italian restaurant and a Turkish guy comes around with hookahs. Tobacco only though...
As I am writing this Boise fumbles again. For fucks sake!!!!!! They must have hit off their team hookah not filled with tobacco! This is getting a bit rediculous.
I have a massage riding on the Utes, so I encourage Boise to smoke another hookah at half.
Damn. I have 34 confidence points on Boise for the mgoblog pool. I can def empathize with your situation though.
Though does it matter? That kinda sounds win-win to me.
Losing means I clean her ears. This is apparently a way of couples bonding in Asian culture or something. I have to use these bamboo shoots that have been carved into the shape of toothpicks. Something about Asians having drier ear wax than white folk.
See how much she can make the white boy believe. ;-) Never heard of that...but then, my wife probably wouldn't want me sharp objects in my hand after losing a bet. (I was going to say "wouldn't want me poking her with sharp objects after...", but well...). But taking her at her word, I guess you do have something riding on the game. I keep trying to think of a way that might be kinky...but no, can't think of a way that sounds like fun.
Wikipedia confirms her story. She does lay her head in my lap for the process so I have that going for me.
During halftime check out the Japanese super duper ear pick: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-PlBo-zjcU
Ever hear or use an ear candle? I have always been curious on the feeling of those.
Asian ear wax removal is more on the high tech side of things. We have one of those ear picks that plugs into the TV and outputs in HD. So you can sit in front of a 42" TV and clean your ear out in 720p goodness.
I have a hard time believing that a candle could generate enough suction to pull out ear wax though.
I'll believe wiki. Though Japanese YouTube...is there anything they won't do?
Well, if you lose (and it's not looking so great right now), make sure she rolls over from ear to ear a lot.
It all depends what you had in the hookah. Also this Utah defense is impressive. Utah just recovered another fumble.
And only 3 points, somethings wrong.
Any predictions for Utah in the Pac-12?
EDIT: I forget. Are they in the Bros or Brahs Division?
To see who deserves to get in more.
Highlight: Corey Joseph of Pickering, Ontario puts the dagger in Michigan State for Texas [at Michigan State].
In other news: Brent Musburger can fcuk off when discussing Canadians. Stupid jackass get oot of my tv.
Again, Musberger. He told us about the pie eating contest earlier. Now he blessed us with the knowledge of the Outback Buffet Bowl as well.
As writing this...TOUCHDOWN BOISE!!!! Sorry CRex....
Hemingway would have sidestepped that play towards the sideline and taken it to the bank ala Illinois.
Utah is having problems wrapping up. As I write I think the implosion is commencing.
Kellen Moore is one ugly mudapuka
Even sweeter when seeing the HB run into Cain before Utah punted. Don't understand going for two though...
Obligatory dancing cat pic in 3...2...1...
Bets on when Urban Meyer announces he is becoming the QB coach at Denver?
I'll clean 'enh if he does.
When he started high stepping.
How much did the missed FG in the Nevada game cost BSU??
This one looks to be over. Utah's offense isn't doing well enough to bring them back.
Turn Oooonnnnnn the Ear Pick, The Par-Tay's Overrrrr....!
We're going to pop on Stargate (all of SG-1 is on Hulu until the end of Jan) and get down to business. We know how to party over here, yes we do.
Touchdown Boise! 23-3 Cat? Yes, dancing cat.
Music to my ears...no pun intended...well maybe...
Utah DOOM? DOOM.
This is looking pretty bad for the Utes
Utah. Not carrying any momentum into the Pac 10.
Nor are they carrying the ball very well.
Boise State's kicker. Not carrying any momentum into the game of life.
He'll probably end up changing his name to Brent Musberger Jr. and annoy future generations. That is probably his best option right now.
This is one of the most undisciplined performances I have ever seen by a team (Utah)
And these refs keep throwing flags every 2 plays
Cain just got...Dis-Abeled.......
You're a pretty punny character!
GOOD GOD!! I know this is a trial run for Mushmouth and Herbie but i think ill see who is doing the NC game on radio and turn down the volume!! OMG my ears are BLEEDING!!
And this game should be SOOOOOO much closer...friggin Utes are giving the game away!!
At least other teams miss easy field goals too.
Musberger will talk about that batted pass and catch the rest of bowl season. None good.
OK its almost end of game and one thing still comes back and bites me in the rear....WHAT IS WITH JOHN SAUNDERS DROOLING ALL OVER MYERS BALL SACK ON PREGAME AND HALFTIME!! Can one man pleasure another so much on national TV and get away with it?? How about those 30 ARRESTS during Urbans tenure?? Great grad % too!! Sometimes its just too much to bear!!
WHOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!! OSU GOING DOWN IN FLAMES!! TAKT THAT SWEATER VEST!!! please be true!!!
Way to go Pryor...way to distance yourself!!
Did anyone just hear that?
OSU might be suspending 8 players because they traded signed gear for tattoos??
Anyone have any info on this??
They just mentioned something about many Ohio State players involved in Autographs for Tattoo scandal which can lead to suspension of players from bowl game.
This would have been the better idea.
