The Straggler

Tonight’s bowl game is like the fat kid who’s at the back of the pack when the class is running the mile in PE. The last non-BCS game was four days ago; why this bowl (which is being sponsored by GMAC- good move sponsoring this bowl, guys) is being played so late, I do...

I’ve read some articles that suggest that last night’s Fiesta Bowl was a boring game, in which neither team really played that well. Well, I’m sorry that a 17-10 game that came down to TCU’s final possession wasn’t good enough for those writers. I still think that people will look back on this game...

Well, yesterday I was humbled. Bowling Green and Idaho put on an offensive show as I predicted, and it turned out to be the best finish in a bowl game this year. With that being said, I wasn’t too upset that Idaho won and cost me 18 points in the College Bowl Mania game....
