Hawaii Bowl Open Thread

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on December 24th, 2011 at 7:32 PM

I am creating this a little early because I still have some gift wrapping to accomplish, but I should be back here to man the thread (as if I had to work at it) around 8 PM. 

It's  that vaunted Nevada vs. Southern Miss rivalry in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, and for those of us at home with little else to do but wrap gifts on Christmas Eve, a football game is the perfect thing to at least listen to.

Further, LSAClassOf2000 and his MGoFamily wish everyone Happy Holidays and much prosperity in the new year. I've had a lot of fun here this past year, and I look forward to many more.

I'm home at my mom's place and her and my sister just put on reruns of NCIS. There is an excess of booze in the house, however, so this open thread should at least be fun before the mother goes to her jacuzzi and my sister opens a book or something.

Two plays after that, first down, then intentional grounding. The Southern Miss offense is at best a bipolar one. 

EDIT: The Southern Miss defense, however, can apparently bring it now and again. Nice defensive TD.

Am I the only one who tapes all the bowl games every year? I've been taping them since back in 1996. Lemme amend that. I attempt to tape all the games.

...that was an OK return, Nevada. 

Maybe the need to learn the "HOLD ONTO THE DAMN BALL" lesson?

EDIT: I am pretty sure that trying to strip the receiver of his clothes counts as holding, yes...

DOUBLE EDIT: My god, Nevada's defense is going to Zeno's Paradox the Eagles to death with holding calls......and then, TD Southern Miss plus a mean left hook 

TRIPLE EDIT: 17-14 Southern Miss at halftime. Both teams are back in their corners for the time being.

...about the LSA bit. My sincere and astonished congratulations for referencing Zeno's Paradoxes. I'd buy you a beer or three if you were here right now.

About Southern Miss: They're not looking to good tonight. But against Houston, they looked absolutely dominant. It could be that they're 1) not that good at all and just had a good game against Houston 2) not that good but Houston is a steaming pile of crap, or 3) They've had a letdown after a monumental win. Lethargy perhaps?

You RUN with the PASSING quarterback! Of course!

Although, Nevada ties it on the FG. Southern Miss runs into the kicker. All is well in the "stupid penalties" department here. 

EDIT: Not making a new comment for it, but 24-17 Southern Miss is your final.
