Central Florida killed Ball St. last night, everything was clicking for Florida and their defense was constantly hammering Ball St. offense. 2 more games today and I got the beer ready.

It's time to resume bowling!! That SMU upset of Fresno State sure took care of the remaining perfect scores in a hurry. But there's lots of football left, it's still anybody's game.

On tap tonight is my local bowl: the Little Caesar's Bowl, which used to be the Motor City Bowl (a much nicer name, imho). The game is scheduled for 7:30 pm ET in everyone's favorite winter destination, beautiful downtown Detroit! Taking the field tonight will be the feisty Chippewas of Central Michigan University and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. I'm of course rooting for the local underdogs, hopefully it will be a good game. I'm curious to see how full Ford Field is, given the moderate storm we're getting here right now. It may be the players' families and a whole lot of empty seats, unfortunately. Good luck to all the poolers and enjoy the game!

Things are heating up in Bowl Land, with three games on the schedule for today. Right now, Perry is holding on to a 2 game point lead, but that could all change by the end of today. Coming up today are:

3 pm ET: Military Bowl Presented By Northrop Grumman (aka Military-Industrial Complex Bowl), Washington DC
San Jose State vs. Bowling Green

6: 30 pm ET: Belk Bowl, Charlotte, N.C.
Cincinnati vs. Duke

9:45 pm ET: Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl, San Diego, CA
Baylor vs. UCLA


Should be some good games, and it's a whole lot more fun watching them than fighting the snow. Enjoy, everybody!!

1 game lead...they score this pool weirdly. Whole family has been sick and now that they are recovering and want to get out, I doubt I'll catch many games this weekend. though people are dumping Bronco tix, so may do that on Sunday.

First off, can I just say how relieved I am to finally be doing better than Dave?! I was never going to hear the end of that!!

There are 5 games in store today, with some of the higher ranked teams getting into the action with some great match-ups. Pour a cup of coffee and settle in, because they've already started! Games all on ESPN unless otherwise noted.

11:30 am ET: Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, Fort Worth, TX
Rice vs. Air Force

3:15 pm ET: New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY (another fine winter destination! )
West Virginia vs. Syracuse

4 pm ET (ESPN2): Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (love a bowl with a cause not a corporation!), San Francisco, CA
Navy vs. Arizona State

6:45 pm ET: Valero Alamo Bowl, San Antonio, TX
Texas vs. Oregon State

And, most importantly, at least to me:

10:15 pm ET: BUFFALO WILD WINGS BOWL, Tempe, AZ
TCU vs. MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY SPARTANS!!!!!!

No games scheduled for Sunday, it's all NFL today. But 23Atwell has sure been on a tear the last three days! He's now in the lead by 8 points over several folks in second, after going on an 11 game correct pick streak. Way to go, Ryan!

Thanks Sue! On my way home from a wonderful night with FFF and some tasty music. I didn't think much when I made my picks. Went with my first instinct. Will see. Plenty of more games left.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Happy New Year's Football Day!!! Even though the national championship isn't today any more, as far as I'm concerned this is my high holy day of college football, I love it! And what a start: a Big 10 pick 6 by Northwestern in the opening play of the Gator Bowl, go Wildcats!!

As for the pool, there's still a lot of games to go, and 23Atwell's big win streak finally ended last night. But he still holds a 4 game lead, with kmanger in second place. But as I said, there's a lot of football left, and anything can happen. Enjoy the games, folks!


And GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
