a $5 Hot N' Ready from Little Ceasars
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
a $5 Hot N' Ready from Little Ceasars
Just saw the Little Cesars commercial. Did you get a second Hot'N'Ready for free? If not, you got ripped.
For properly titling this thread. The fact that the bowl committee hasn't seen fit to properly name their bowl game is their error.
Are Clive Owen and Naomi Watts alums?
Before I realized it wasn't the team MSU played coming back to Ford Field.
I was wondering this too and after 15 minutes or so looking through wikipedia and the school's website still have no answer. 90% of the students are from Florida.
This surprised me: it is the 15th largest university in the country, with over 40,000 students.
Toledo travels well. I'm going with the over: 11K in attendance.
was a huge win for the pizza bowl
For the Champ Sports or Insight.
The real reward of this game might be the free swag they get for going...
Gift Suite ???
A Timely watch
Leather duffel bag
If curious about other bowls:
Also, I have Toledo with 25 confidence points. Jhackney, hope Christmas treated you well as your mgoblog pool is not treating me well.
X-mas wishes to you too. I got a kindle and one of those one cup coffee makers. FWIW- MGoBlog.com has a .99 cent monthly subscription fee for the most hardcore MGoJunkies.
As for the pool...I am 135th...Go Toledo!
and FWIW, Brian wanted it to be free but Kindle has a minimum 99c fee
No problem! I hope Brian makes some moolah off it. It was the first thing I looked up when I got it. I also wonder if that 99 cent minimum changed. I just got the "current issue" of Slate today for 49 cents.
Hopefully the teams are more prepared than the production crew is.
Audio Fail. Illitch should have thrown in for microphones.
ESPN=Pathetic for still not fixing the problem.
I like the radio feed as audio. I also like the hair of FIU's QB. Very Brady-esque.
I also see a slight resemblance to Sunshine as well if the hair was combed.
I hear Brandon is at this game right now and will be deciding after Jan 1 whether to ever order a Little Casears pizza over the new-improved Dominos product.
Will that hurt the toppings process?
That crowd could not look less interested. Sad pizza.
I bet they thought they were seeing a Vikings game again. I would also bet a couple of them are holding out thinking this is the opening act.
Told them they were on Sunday night football.
Wooo Toledo!! 7-0!!
For your prediction of 7-0 to stay that way... ;-)
The FIU O-Line is turrible.
I'm not sure the Vikings would be any better.
Vikings would be less interesting. And as a bonus, no talk about Favre. Yet.
Touching to be down, two feet in for a completion, and the challenge system are the best JC Pearson could come up with for NCAA rule changes? Think big JC, think big. How about playoffs, clear and cinsistent enforcement of the rules, outlawing picking up so many recruits and hoping some fail out or cutting upperclassmen. He also keeps calling the players "big boys". Stop it JC. Try young men, it makes you sound more credible as a commentator.
JC also has a fierce start on an afro. I hope he becomes a trend setter for ESPN employees and possibly the rest of society.
+1 because you made me think of the Beatles song and to get over the notorious 28,000 point hump.
I've heard that's the toughest point to reach. MGoPoints supposedly become easy to get after that.
Is it bad that the number one reason I look forward to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl is for the cow commercials?
No. Their commercials are good. Most of the time better than the bowl game they sponsor.
Makes me long for the Poulan Weed-Eater Bowl...
As I am watching this game, it occurs to me that I saw both of these teams in person earlier this season. Back in September, I saw FIU play at Maryland when I was in DC for a week. I also drove down from Ann Arbor to catch some mid-week MAC-tion, Toledo vs Bowling Green, last month.
This raised two questions in my mind...
1. Am I the only person in the country that can claim to have attended games of both of these teams this season (prior to tonight?)
2. Do I need to enroll in a 12 step program due to my obvious college football addiction?
From Ford Field...so you can say you saw each team twice.
Is this game worth watching? The score line has me afraid of a potential blow out/precious wasted Sunday night minutes.
Well Toledo just returned a kickoff for a score making it 24-14. So it got a little more interesting? I don't doubt Toledo wins. FIU's offense sucks and can't do anything.
You should also try to catch a glimpse of Toledo's mascot. Yo-gabba-gabba material.
The score line shouldn't scare you, the matchup and bowl name should.
Update: Maybe I spoke too soon. 24-21.
I'd like to believe we just willed the game into being good again. No sooner did I post that previous comment than FIU decided to get all Devin-Hester-and-Forcier-Against-Baby-Seal good.
Hey Toledo QB. If you are going to get sacked and your body is facing backwards, don't throw the ball up for grabs. That is the kind of shit that could land you in the Humanitarian Bowl next year.
Toledoception on the 4 yard line. If Toledo gets some sort of offensive momentum together (big if), watch out Golden Panthers.
I wish this commentator would stop talking about all the facemasks he is seeing.
I've got 35 freakin' points on this game. Don't blow it Toledo
On a 1 1/2 - 2 point spread? I mean the other night someone had underdog Navy with like 34 points, but shouldn't you save that for say Oklahoma or Nebraska? Or at least a touchdown favorite?
And Toledo throws another interception. Guh. This must have been what it was like to watch my high school team play football.
Srsly? I need my 28 confidence points to get out of 135th place Toledo. Anytime you are done screwing with this Sun-Belt team, let us know.
Toledo must have gotten their forth quarter ideas and gameplay straight from the New York Giants self help book, "How to Close Out Games like a Champ".
I can't decide if this is ugly football with all the turnovers and special teams plays, or if it's a good game. I'm leaning toward ugly football. Does either team want to win this one?
Electronic Football - worst great game ever, or best bad game ever?
I'm at this game and a few interesting notes:
I saw brennen beyer in the parking garage.
Toledos mascot is really odd looking.
Our suite is next to the president of FIUs. They are super annoying
Some gossip might spice up this game.
Being chatty cathys. Women annoyingly cheering. Getting pissed at 5 yard Toledo gains
Going for two? You are scared to go to overtime with FIU??!!
I tip my hat to the Rockets on that one. Why not go for the win? Wow.
He returned it to the second z of pizza!!
They give you the 30 yard line automatically and usually much more.
Anyone else think the Toledo WR dropped that two-point conversion? I sure thought I saw the football drop to the turf as he was going down.
I didn't see it. Anyway for a posted clip?
I am more worried right now about Toledo dropping this game.
I was wrong, the end of this game has been pretty entertaining.
stop the 4th down play?
They can't do that.
What a finish! O_O
DAMN SHIT FART my bowl picks sheet -------------> trash
Woah, that was pretty entertaining. I guess I wanted Toledo to win, but I'll take an entertaining finish no matter what.
Mario Cristobal, stop talking about stealing plays from Boise. Someone else ran the hook and ladder before them you know.
If he calls that out, as it SHOULD be called, they can't overturn it because he's obviously out short of the 1st. But NOOooo... he had to call it wrong, and then there's not INDUSPUTABLE evidence... Bastard.
You know, for all the grief the Motor City/Pizza Bowl gets, it seems to deliver a good game every year.
What in the hell song were they playing after the game? Sounds like Shirley Temple or something
Well done, I guess my real question is why? Doesn't really scream we just won our first bowl game! Probably just because it's Motown but I feel like they could of found better
for Harbaugh...SF threads? Singletary out in SF.
HOT N READAAAAAAAAAAAAY
