Sugar Bowl Open Thread
Who all was there last year? I was... : (
I was! I don't remember my time on bourbon street though.
Discovering that you could carry an alcoholic beverage wherever you go was just like being a kid on Christmas morning. Don't think I left the hotel without one. I cannot say it resulted in a pleasant drive back to Ann Arbor, though.
I hear that. Also, buying booze at a Michigan game was new to me as well, and new was awesome.
I was also really looking forward to having my first (legal) drink in the Big House for this year's NHL Winter Classic.
You should go to Michigan hockey games at the Joe. I tried to slam large Molson Xxx's one game (1 per period). That night did not end well...
We're awesome last year. Had to be 2:1 michigan to vt on bourbon street. Had a blast
Seeing the city during the lead in made me nolstagic.
Good God... What was that "national anthem"?
Florida fans are a bunch of brats. They were talking about Florida not selling most of their tickets pregame. Because their fans think they're too good for the Sugar Bowl. That's ridiculous. How about you win more games if you think that's the case?
That's the SEC's Rose Bowl. You think Georgia wouldn't want to be there?
Hell, I'd love to see Michigan play in this game against louisville!
Also: Muhammed Ali!!
Worse turnout than last year...
WOOOOO! Driskel, you noodle arm! Pick 6!
Makes me want a grenade.
I kept my hand grenade cup as a souvenir of awesome night.
Go Teddy Bridgewater and Co.. I thoroughly enjoyed New Orleans last year and can't wait to go back (Bowl game or not).
Refs have missed a blatant facemask and a helmet to helmet hit on Florida already.
Louisville is coming to play today!
SEC SEC SEC!!! Oh wait.
Louisville playing a little mooseball!
Greaaaat start for Louisville. Love seeing these teams who think they're superior looking around like they don't know what hit them. Now they're reviewing this but save for a ultimate debacle Louisville will be up two tuds.
ESSS EEEEE SEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
LOL it's the 2009 Sugar Bowl all over again. SEC team thinking they're better and not being motivated and laying an egg right off the bat.
What a wonderful start to this game.
Wtf is up with the delay??!
Is a stud. Picked apart against an excellent Florida defense. MOAR BRIDGEWATER!!!!
I wish somebody would slap these SEC kids who chirp after play they make (even when some of the plays are advantageous to the opposing team)...It happened all day yesterday by the SC players.
Yeah what was up with that SC kid yesterday doing the make it rain thing?
Right. I have no clue. It looks asinine but whataya gonna do. Kids will be kids. I had a few buddies who played for Iowa a few years back during years they made Outbac Bowl (playing SC). They said they were the biggest group of thugs they've played against; in a way Spurrier promotes that kinda garbage in his program (and I'm a guy who kinda likes Spurrier).
But I can't think of a reason in the world not to root for Lousiville. Charlie Strong, Vance Bedford, anti-SEC, Florida fans are kinda assholes. Seems an easy call.
needs to get their money back.
Yikes, no kidding.
Every time I hear Trey Burton I keep thinking they're saying Trey Burke. Too used to Trey dominating the game of basketball.
That drive included runs of 13, 9 (twice), 8, 6, 5 (twice) yards, and two passes of over 10 yards, and Florida gets the field goal. That's a lot of work for a field goal, in my opinion, but the closer they got to the goal line, the more mentally unaware they seemed to get.
Might have to look into that all-sunflower seed diet.
I think you can chalk this up to kids having a lack of consistantcy.
I can't stand these SEC punks. Sticking your finger in a refs face would buy you a few hours of stadium steps at Michigan.
Bo would be absolutely livid if a player did that and to be honest, I don't think a player on his teams would have. Bo put fear into those guys.
That sounds like unsportsmanlike conduct to me.
I highly doubt that
Where can I get a sweet gold chain like the one Tebow is wearing?
I did not expect this at all. That being said, I'm enjoying this game very much.
has got to be getting considered for NFL HC jobs.
we can safely enjoy a little schadenflorida.
Did you all just see ESPN use the Michigan VT helmets on their Sugar Bowl logo instead of Florida and Louisville? 9:29 for those with DVR.
Wow it's amazing how bad Louisville is at running, yet they are dominating.
They keep moving it because Florida can't get stops on third down.
Sounds familiar. Le sigh...
Anyone else notice Morrison, a starting freshman linebacker for Florida playing out there? Wasn't he being recruited by us last year?
