The Belk Bowl Open Thread

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on December 27th, 2011 at 7:33 PM

I had to look up this morning because I honestly didn't know it was a department store.

Anyway, our contestants here are Louisville (7-5) versus North Carolina State (7-5), so another struggle of so-so teams in another randomly sponsored bowl. 

Have fun with this one as well.  If there is anything I can do to make these threads better - like more onside kicks as in the Pizza Bowl - let me know. 

ESPN at 8 PM. Line is N.C. State by 2.5, I think.

Obvious false  start is obvious, especially when you realize you're the only one running after 20 yards or so. 

EDIT: Charlie Strong sounded like he was speaking from inside a cave...

At least, I never thought it would be said so casually, the keys to offense in the Louisville locker room:



ADMONISHMENT TO BOTH TEAMS: WTF with the false starts? Snap count - learn it.

Belks runs the full spectrum from being EXACTLY like Macy's to being much more upscale. In some of the smaller malls and shopping centers, it's a Macy's clone (better than Kohl's). At the main mall in Raleigh, they actually have two stores -- one only for men that carries Armani, Hugo Boss, Joseph Aboud, XMI, etc (very similar to Nordstroms) and one for women and bridal registries.

All North Carolina brides know to register at Belk's. You just have to do it.
