Car Care Bowl Open Thread

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on December 31st, 2011 at 11:08 AM

Good morning, CFB fans!

ESPN will kick off another full day of bowl games at noon EST  with the Meineke Car Care Bowl, featuring Texas A&M (6-6) and their "we're so pissed, we fired our coach" baggage and a Northwestern (6-6) team that prides itself on being the perennial trap game of the B1G. 

I took Texas A&M in the first half myself, with Northwestern making a strong showing in the 2nd half as the Aggies fade, but not enough to lose to the Wildcats. The official line is pointing to Texas A&M  as well, I believe. 

So you know what is coming, here is today's lineup:

2 PM on CBS - Sun Bowl (G-Tech versus Utah)

3:30 PM on ABC - Liberty Bowl (Cincinnati versus Vanderbilt)

3:30 PM on ESPN - Fight Hunger Bowl (UCLA versus Illinois)

7:30 PM on ESPN - Chick-Fil-A Bowl (Virginia versus Auburn)

When DOESN'T Danielson talk about the SEC?  Dude is obsessed with them and is the same guy that rooted for Florida to get in the NC game over us and then Alabama over Oklahoma State.  CBS is to SEC as is NBC is to Notre Dame.

I am not a coach, but over 45 minutes into regulation is  a little late to find your rhythm on offense unless you're banking on Texas A&M mounting a collapse that would surely end up enshrined on FAILBlog tomorrow...

Well, it IS Texas A&M we're discussing...

Pat Fitzgerald loves his job. Always seems happy no matter the score. NU is the perfect place for him with the lack of expectations. He'll have a 30-year career there of 5-8 win seasons and he'll be in heaven.

If Northwestern played like they did at the end, they would've destroyed A&M.  Too bad they let A&M run all over this offense until the 4th quarter.  Still think Northwestern and Iowa should have won their games...
