Looks to be a good game with Ohio vs. UL-Monroe. Who else is watching? Who are you rooting for?

Mickey Tettleton's son Tyler is a pretty solid player for Ohio. He's done a pretty good job for them the last two years. Got a chance to see him in the MAC Championship loss against NIU last year and seemed to be a good player. I expected the conference to be doing a little better so far. After this game there are two more MAC teams playing.

My brother goes to NIU so I've been to the last 3 MAC championships and as long as Michigan and NIU aren't playing at the same time I'll go out to Dekalb to watch NIU play. I don't mind the MAC. They tend to have quite a few high scoring and exciting games. I'll be headed to the Orange Bowl next week which should be interesting.

I'm a realistic guy haha. I know that NIU winning is highly unlikely but it was a situation where they'll probably never have this opportunity again so I needed to make the trip down. Plus you can't beat south beach on New Years. Was originally hoping the Outback Bowl was earlier in the day on the 1st because I would have tried to make both games by going to Tampa and Miami. As it stands now its too tight so I won't be able to make it.

The Blankenship-Tettleton "Norman Connection" really has worked like a charm for the Bobcats all year, it seems. They do make a pretty good QB-RB combination. 

And with that, Browning is safe at second for a first down. Nice baseball slide.

Woo OHIO keeps me alive in my bowl pool!  I'm now just 1 game back of most people and 2 back of the leader.  Still a tough hill to climb. There's a lot of people that are one game ahead of me and this was the last really big chance I had to jump a lot of them at once. Pitt is my next chance to jump a bunch of people and Rutgers tonight give me a chance to jump a few.

It's been ugly, but I live on.
