Alamo Bowl Open Thread

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on December 29th, 2011 at 8:18 PM

In the spirit of creating these threads ridiculously early, I present to the MGoPublic the Valero Alamo Bowl Open Thread. Remember, gas is a few cents cheaper at the Valero Canton.

Anyhow, it's Washington (7-5) versus RGIII and Baylor (9-3) in a Pac-12 / Big 12 matchup.

ESPN at 9 PM, immediately following the sudden fun that seriously is the Champs Sports Bowl.

Well at least we know the BCS got one thing right finally when they took us instead of Baylor. I feel like any member of this blog would be a perfect choice to commentate this game for ESPN.  Nobody knows more about an unbalanced team than we do.

broke the record for most points ever by a losing team in regulation, and that was only 49-42 after 3 quarters.

I don't think either team's going to beat Georgia Tech's 222 though.

RGIII is going to get a ton of love from the media in the write up of this story; so far 22 of 31 for 240 with a TD. Really, however, does this performance say much about RGIII or the absolute inept defense he is playing against? 

Enjoy the RGIII love fest after the game.

"the players have no idea what they're doing" - Chris Spielman

Baylor's defensive coaches have not exactly demonstrated excellence this evening. One wonders if Tony Dews is involved somehow...

...and they  weren't confused and didn't actually use a sack. That's something.

Better, the Washington defense backs that up with the "f*ck the perimeter, rush someone who doesn't have the ball" defense.

I bet a certain former Michigan coach now in the southwest USA has more wood than a lumberjack watching this mess.  Lotsa spread, lotsa scoring, defense optional.
