Saturday Bowl Games
Early in the second quarter Rutgers is hanging with ND 10-10. The Rutgers run D has actually held up decently but their corners play about as tight as ours do.
In 5 years, one of these teams will be a secondary rival, and it won't be ND. Think about that.
Rutgers has to become relevant first for that to happen. I don't consider Indiana, Illinois, or Purdue to be secondary rivals even though they are in the Big Ten. Also, to hell with ND.
The line that I can remember on the Pinstripe Bowl actually has Rutgers coming into this game as a 2 TD underdog.
After that deflection / interception, I think we just saw what passes for the Kyle Flood Stare Of Death. In exchange, Notre Dame promptly does only enough to get an FG out of the turnover - I think they gained maybe 1 yard on that drive actually.
On a per snap basis, Rutgers is actually moving the ball a little better than ND at the moment - 6.3 yards to 5.3 yards.
North Carolina -2.5
Miami (FL) +5.5
Screw Notre Dame!! I would be so happy if Rutgers found a way to pull this one out and win.
Poor pass by Rutgers there or it's an easy TD. I personally think they should have gone for it on fourth. It's a bowl game and you are a big underdog. Just go for it.
Awful pass. Rutgers secondary is awful.
EDIT: Yup, this one's a blowout at halftime. Guess I will go get some exercise rather than watch the second half.
Pretty big games for me today with bowl mania. I have:
ND for a 33
Cinci for a 10
Louisville for a 19
Michigan for a 13
10 and 13 aren't that big of points but those games are pretty 50/50 in terms of winners selected in the money pool I'm in.
After going 3-for-11 so far I'm giving up on Bowl Mania faster than I gave up on my Matt Ryan centered fantasy team
That's a fabulous look for them.
I am really going to miss Touchdown Tommy.
Didn't Gholson have like three turnovers against us in one half last year before he was benched? I think the turnover bug may linger on in South Bend.
looks like he's aged 30 years?
Both teams could be better on offense. Nice that Rutgers is in it at least
Are horrendous. If they're going to be shiny, don't try to make them look beat up from the first play.
That was some epically uninterested tackling right there. Wow.
Announcers for pinstripe bowl are terrible. Calling wr
Calling wrong team names often and can't even do simple math.
Not that it excuses anything because I'm sure they have monitors, but I wonder where the announcers are sitting. If they're sitting where announcers normally sit in Yankee stadium, that would give them a very usual view.
Pathetic effort by the Rutgers D. What a joke.
More like pathetic effort by ND's offense. They should have at least 35 points by now.
Mental mistake by Rutgers lets nd off the hook for a missed field goal. Second one goes thru. 16-13.
That was a bullshit call. The Rutgers guy was lying on the ground and the ND kicker into him.
by the fact that Capital One Bowl Week is way longer than a week. This bugs other people too, right? Or is it just me.
I saw that last night and I was very confused.
ND really sucks if they can't torch this Rutgers defense. Their secondary is horrible, every decent QB has had a field day on them.
I think Rutgers is running out of gas. Too many missed opportunities in the first half. That halfback pass was a horrible play call.
Seriously pathetic effort by the ND offense.
Nd has been awful on kick coverage. But Rutgers can't do anything with it when they get good field position
Please stop shooting yourself in the foot. Almost literally.
If not for that retry field goal nd got this game would be tied. Encouraging for Rutgers. I guess.
I'm not a fan of either uniform but I do like seeing both teams wear their home jerseys when the colors aren't he same. I wish Michigan and osu did this
Including RU and MD, we're now 0-3.
It's still sad that both those schools are part of the Big Ten.
What a boring Belk Bowl. Hopefully the Russell Athletic Bowl is more exciting.
Tommy Tuberville is one of the few coaches in college football I will root against.
I know everyone is watching basketball now but this game could be a good one. Miami got a safety early but Louisville has had the better play since. Miami just turned it over on downs at midfield. 3-2 cardinals.
Looked at ESPN and saw the score was 3-2. I was like, "Screw baseball, where's the footb...? Ah. Oh."
