  • If you're a Colorado State fan, of course you want your team to win here.

    If you're a fan of anyone other than Colorado State, how do you not want Idaho to win?

    Idaho wins 61-50. The crazier thing? It was 0-0 after 1 quarter.

    Hell, CSU only had 14 points entering the 4th quarter.

    Defense wins championships but defense has no place in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Or the Famous I_aho Potato Bowl, to be more accurate.

    But good job, Vandals.

  • A lot of bowl projections had us playing the Rams in Boise before the MAC traded it to the Sun Belt, I wonder how that would've played out.

    Given the playing surface last night, I think we dodged a bullet. No reason to have players suffering major injuries in a lower tier bowl game. Part of the reason the game was so high scoring was because it was almost impossible to cut or change direction without slipping, and the offenses were able to take better advantage of that than the defenses.

    Have you seen the turf in St. Pete?

    EMU lost by 4. MAC now 0-3. Thought they might win that one.

    Come on, MAC. Don't make ESPN right.
  • Yeah we'd like to win a few of these minor games, but honestly if WMU wins it'll be worth even losing the others (besides us in St. Pete of course). That's all the national media and attention will be focused on in reality, if they pull it off.

    Not so much now.

    Ohio has 5 turnovers.

    Can you buy weed for only a dollar?

    How many players will be hoping for a Dollar General job application in their swag bag?

    About half of the players' parents won't attend because "they're Dollar Tree families."

    Some of the players were confused when the bowl was announced because they're used to the "dollar general bowls" being the dishes they bring out when they have company.

  • Ohio's going to change its name to Arby's with all the turnovers it's giving away.

    MAC drops to 0-4. The good news is OU losee and still clearly sucks.

    Pitt may have the worst defense in bowl games this year

  • An Arkansas player was just suspended for the Belk Bowl for trying to shoplift from a Belk.

    Were that not enough, the gift the players get from the sponsor is a free gift card to Belk.

    The Orange Bowl got all sorts of bananas in the last 3 minutes.
  • FWIW, Fournette and McCaffrey's teammates have released statements supporting their decisions.

    Jake Butt was likely to be the first TE taken in the first round since 2014.

    He just left tens of millions of dollars on the field in a meaningless game.

    When I wrote this, they were saying ACL. Now they are saying MCL. But still, he's losing money to play in an exhibition.

    No one has yet to explain to me the line of demarcation between when a potentially high draft pick should and should not play.  Are you really suggesting the Sun Bowl to be the same as the Citrus Bowl to be the same as the Orange Bowl?
