If not for Utah, the Pac12 would probably have gone completely winless in bowls this year

Can anyone tell me when the astro bluebonnet bowl will be played
 
2017-12-29 12:38:01 PM  
I don't have ESPN on cable, so could someone post the link from Reddit for streaming the bowl games on ESPN.....Thanks

i think i heard today that there are 3 Pac 12 teams with games left.  so the suck might not suck as bad as it seems to suck, unless they all suck and then we'll definitively suck.

Washington State looked damn good on their first drive last night. Alas, there are generally reasons that  pirates fight on the sea while Spartans stick to land. LJ Scott may have had something to do with it as well. Even though it was in San Diego I was pretty surprised that it seemed to be a Michigan State crowd, it is obviously closer to Washington and it isn't like that state has more sunbathers than Michigan right about now.

Part of your post makes me lean towards Kentucky rather than Northwestern but please, good sir, I request that you specify which school you're rooting for so that I might have petty and immature ammunition against you in the future if it becomes necessary more information for the purposes of wishing your team "good luck."

Is Wake Forest under the impression that they're not allowed to block on special teams? Like this is a video game that throws a random rule in there on a certain setting and it ended up being that one which was selected?

I've got you tagged as "Cried over the 1998 Vikings, tell him about ********."

So there we were...

"No shiat?

Yes, no shiat.

So there we were, five or six of us huddled around the bottom of a tree. Two guys were up in the tree with some super duper 1998 handheld civvie radio getting the signal for the closing moments of the 1999 NFCCG. The weak speaker wasn't enough for us to hear at the bottom so the guys at the top of the tree (it wasn't a big one, they were maybe five meters up in it) were yelling down to those of us on the ground what was going on.

A good buddy of mine is from Duluth and is a die hard Vikings fan, he was in agony listening over those final moments because he couldn't watch it and could only get reports from a weak radio signal relayed to him about what was going on. I remember us just standing there waiting for reports to be yelled down and then the news that the kick was missed was received.

Yeah, my buddy was crushed and he didn't even get a chance to commiserate with anybody back home for another week or so. At some point I saw your post on that shared event and that made me think about that story.

Oh for fark's sake, that was some Roger Dornesque blocking by the RB there. fark me.

I was nine years old. The one thing I remember about that game was my friends ringing my doorbell every few minutes or so asking me to come out and play. Each time progressed something like this:

"I just want to see them score one more time to seal the game, then I'll be out."
"Yeah, he missed the field goal, so just a little bit longer."
"It's still in overtime, I'll be out once they've won."
"I'm not coming outside."

My thought was the ref went to help the player up or something.  The player did a "Denny mansplaining to Danica" thing to the ref grabbing him by the forearms.  Ref tossed him.  I don't have issues with it.  Others will disagree.

Wow, okay. Took a quick visit 'round the tubes and it looks like the player *might* have been using the ref's forearms to help himself up for a nanosecond and then pulled back. I'd say it does look as if the ref was offering his hands/forearms to help the kid up. We have no idea what he was saying to the ref, I am assuming some unpleasant words were being said just because of the way the player instantly let go of the ref and turned around somewhat angrily. Yeah, watched it a few more times and it must have been something the kid said because I see nothing there based on the physical aspect of the interaction. Whatever it was, I hope it merited the outcome and it wasn't just some not cool but still garden variety stuff that a ref has to be the bigger man on.

Two different clips of it below.

You're a PMT fan? Good on you for loving America!

Also, "good luck" tonight. I know you wish my team the same kind of "good luck" and I do not fault you for it. It sure seems odd to not only have Ohio State and USC play in the postseason and not have it be in the Rose Bowl but also that the Cotton Bowl is being played in a place other than the Cotton Bowl.

Petty and immature shot which helps me feel better about myself: At the 2009(?) USC game we had two USC fans sitting next to us. Some Ohio State asshole (yes, I repeat myself, blah blah blah) was cheering when a Trojan got hurt and the USC guys next to us heard it pretty easily, thankfully they didn't mind after everybody around them apologized for the asshole. They were classy after the win but the thing which I took issue with was when they donned their hoodies once the temp got down to a lethally low 68 degrees. :)

The arguments always crack me when someone refers to Southern Cal as the REAL USC. The University of South Carolina was founded almost fifty years before California even became a state.

After watching TCU last night and now Northwestern/Kentucky is it an optical illusion that teams in purple/blue seem so fast?  I know some of them are fast but it's like the whole team at times.  Maybe I'm just not used to watching those colors much.
