  • Photos from skin66 - have you seen these men?

    The intrepid @skin66 emailed me some photos a while ago for posting.  I apologize for not getting to them sooner!

    First are two from our 2007 trip to Fairbanks to watch Miami take on Alaska in hockey.  True story: it was warmer in Fairbanks, Alaska that weekend (around 15-20, I believe) than it was in Charlottesville, Virginia, where I was in law school (9 degrees). Also a true story: closing time in Alaska is 4 AM. Closing down a bar is a bad idea, even if you can spend the next morning at a natural hot spring soaking the hangover away. The first picture has (L-R) me, skin66's friend Craig, skin66, Bash Riprock, and trumpetdaddy.  The second has skin66, me, and MUfan.

    skin66 also sent a photo of folks at the pregame festivities before the 42-0 beatdown against Colorado in 2007. From L-R: Nicksin, Bash Riprock, the late dave67, MUfan, skin66, and erierd.

  • MIAMI BOWL PICTURE

    Very odd they wouldn't have announced that prior if it was the case. 

    Ball St versus San Jose St in the Arizona Bowl. That's a good bowl, on NYE and on CBS.


    Much better than what we got for winning the MAC last year.
    They’re a CBSSN game usually. They’re only on CBS this year because the Sun Bowl in El Paso (played at the same time) got canceled.

  • MIAMI BOWL PICTURE

    All links to 2020-2021 MAC bowl affiliations/contracts seem to have been deleted from the conference’s official site. I wonder if the agreements became null and void when the MAC canceled football in July or August.
    Per this article announcing the Potato Bowl's one-year tie in with the AAC, "The Mid-American Conference this year is limiting bowl games in which its teams will play, due to COVID-19."

  • Kent up 4 at Virginia with 3:30 to go.

    North Dakota in a 1-possession game at Minnesota at the under-8 timeout.  


    They lost to Dixie St. after playing us. Never heard of this school, but apparently they're now D1.
    They’re in Utah. First year in D1.
