Bowl Season Open Thread: The Motor City Bowl

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

Talk about a game I care nothing about, but hell it's Football right? Can someone explain how there was no Football yesterday? Basketball is okay on X-mas, but I need some pigskin in my life on Holidays.

Anywho, here are your particulars. I'll be updating throughout the game, and it should be a good one. We've got a potential shootout and Andre Ware! I got a LeFevour....and the only thing that can cure it is more cowbell.

"43 yard punt. No re-tune.....turn."- Dave Pasch

"Keith the first to show up and arrive."- Andre Ware

A little bit redundant Andre.

"Stretched out every ounce of speed he had"- Andre Ware (Via Anon)

Hilarious. That ones going to the top for sure.

"The Turf Monster, the Green Grinch."- Andre Ware

Isn't the Grinch already green???

"If Pasch shows up we get a game. Stamp it....they should write it up in the NCAA Record books or something."- Andre Ware

Or something.

Not the smartest of plays apparently. I thought they'd be able to hang with them.

A few things:
1. It must really suck to have to play a team in a bowl that you already took care of earlier in the year.
2. Why would the Motor City want these teams to meet again?
3. Central M. is pure shit. They make Purdue look like a real team with a stout defense, and we all know that is bullshit.

'Dre better start talking some stupid shit soon cause this is beat.

Seriously....this game is making me want to take a nap.

Dan LeFevour is not Tim Tebow?

The Nation of Islam Sportsblog is stunned.

"Stretched out every ounce of speed he had" - Come on Who Else?

'They basically look the same? Upside down 9?'

To borrow a phrase,

"What in God's holy name are you blathering about?"

Hope you guys are still awake... this turned into a good game, and there's still a quarter to go.

Incidentally, did anyone catch the part at the end of the first quarter when they accidentally displayed the ending first-quarter graphic with 10 seconds left and Purdue immediately scored a long touchdown?

I told you I had a Fevour!

Dec 26, 2007, 10:32:00 PM  

Well that turned out to be pretty much for that "stout defense" I mentioned earlier.

Give AA a Pammy for listing the 'Southern Michigan' Receiving leader.
There are enough directional schools in Michigan.

Damn....I didn't even spell it right either.

CMU +9 looks like money now!

Did anyone else notice the funny graphics error right before the end of the 1st quarter. Purdue got the ball with :20 left following a CMU field goal to make it 14-6, and ESPN flashed their end-of-quarter scorebug on the screen. Wouldn't you know that the next play results in a touchdown for Purdue on their first play of that particular series, making it 21-6 by quarter's end. Just thought that was ironic.

I can't believe I didn't listen to you and not lose a dime betting on the favored Boilermakers.

LeFevour's favorite music is John Legend.

Sign him to the Ravens this instant.

The best line of the night was:

Pasch: He's showing all of his "skeeeels" (skills).
Ware: Skeeeels???

Dave Pasch trying to be black...priceless!
