So, what would one put in a GMAC bowl? Auto loan paperwork? I will say, Mobile, Alabama has always looked like a fun town to me. Oldest Mardi Gras parade in the US, you know.
A blocked field goal is a rotten way to end a great game. To me, a great game is one in which both teams play well and it's just a shame that one of them has to lose. Overtime or extra innings are not necessary. A great finish does not make a great game. Both Central Michigan and Troy played fabulously tonight. It was certainly the best game I've watched so far this bowl season. But it ended on a mistake. Can't blame the kicker. Somebody missed the block at the line. Players and fans of the losing team won't remember the rest of the game. Just the blocked kick - second year in a row that Troy has lost a bowl game in this fashion. That's a shame.
For me, it's down to a battle for fifth place tomorrow night. The math is pretty straight forward. If I pick the same team as the guy in sixth and our team loses, I win fifth place. If our team wins, he takes fifth. If we pick opposite teams, I win if my team wins. Since I can't win the group, the next best scenario is for Mock to win it. He's currently in fourth but can win if his team wins and everyone ahead of him picks the opposite team. Got all that?
