Motor City/Little Caesars/PizzaPizza Bowl Open Thread
I have a strong feeling they will run all over CMU.
I've been wrong thus far. CMU is looking pretty good right now.
Would rather be at the game! Was thinking about heading down there but the weather made me think twice about that.
Just see some other teams play. Sheridan would have been a good excuse to go to this one. But the weather blows. I know Kentucky isn't tropical either, but man bad enough these teams have to go to Detroit for a bowl game. Now they're going to get snowed in.
a LOT of empty seats.
Doing a little early scoutin' for the 2013 opener.
I predict pizza pizza
Should pay attention to Eric Fisher, LT from CMU. He may get drafted in 1st round.
Also, keep an eye out for Andrew Jackson. He's short and well built ILB who can stuff the running game.
Better enjoy college football while it lasts. It's a long offseason. I'm taking in every game I can.
I dunno, I really enjoy them. They may not be the best display of good football, but they're often still entertaining and I get to see teams I would not otherwise watch.
You could be out seeing Les Mis.
Damnit. M-Wolv beat me to it
Someone needs to tell WKU's interim coach to lay off the caffeine.
Oh yay. Jemele Hill is here.
It's still the motor city bowl to me dammit!
Still Tiger Stadium to me. Drives my 12 year old nuts.
They said on the radio today that tickets on StubHub were going for $90+. Too late to verify, but wow.
90 cents would be more believable. The crowd looks sparse. Didn't they give away tickets to the MACtion Championship? I'd guess that this would be similar...
The whole Cass Tech team went to the MAC title game. Mike Weber (2015 RB) tweeted there were more people at their State Championship game then at the MAC game.
It's a little closer for Cass Tech than NIU or Kent St. The MAC championships always struggle for filling the stadium. I've gone to the last three for NIU
Noticed the Chrysler, Buick, Ford & UAW logos on the 25yd lines. Pizza Bowl showing it's roots to it's past as the Motor City Bowl.
Lol WTF was that safety doing? He ran right passed the WR, after he caught it! Possibly the worst angle I've ever seen taken.
Yeesh that was some awful defense. 7-0 chips
I believe this is what the kids call MACtion.
Mighty creative play call right there Sheridan
7-7. 70 yard double pass sets it up.
But biffs tackles badly and commits penalties. Frustrating.
Shootout time. 14-7 CMU.
probably the play of the game, should probably go back to my novel.
I like CMU's RB Zurlon Tipton. He's a kid who wanted to come to UM, and I was hoping we'd give him an offer but we never did. He's turning in to a really good MAC tailback.
Yeah, he's pretty good at fighting for that extra couple yards.
But as cold predictions (which is not what they do) the lines have been awful this bowl season. Arizona near double digit fav in a game they probably should have lost. Utah St should have been an even bigger favorite. BYU wasn't even a FG fav. Ball St lost by a lot more. Fresno was an 11 point fav and lost by 30. And W. Kentucky isn't looking like a 5+ point favorite.
HOLY ONE HANDED GRAB
Nice snag for a te
What a catch! TD WKU!
Again, all Sheridan
CMU's jerseys are a beaut... /s
At least our shoulders don't look like that
I'm not very familiar with CMU. Who are they losing on this team after the game?
Their qb, left tackle, strong safety, and wr. That's all I can remember off the top of my head at the game.
I will say that I did like how the footballwas batted away on the Hilltoppers' last drive, almost as if Andrews said, "RUN! RUN!" as he hit it.
Also, is it just me or is passing just not working for the most part in the past few minutes for either team? The sack of Jakes reminded me that being able to attack a defense through the air is sometimes taken for granted.
EDIT: The CMU offensive line needs to not make Ryan Radcliff block his own pass attempts. Sack, fumble, recover own fumble. Interesting play, but that's a lot to ask of your QB.
It seems like the Hilltoppers are outplaying them but keep stumbling over themselves.
Nick Sheridan is looking pretty good up in the booth.
and camera pan to him in the booth
