Las Vegas Bowl looks really good tomorrow.  As the son of an EMU alum, I may check that out, and probably Appy State late.

Purple Raiders go down. 

first loss since the 2016 semifinals, where they were bested by Mary Hardin Baylor.

Mornin' all. Didn't watch any football last night - local chamber banquet and all that. Good times.


Today: Making baby back ribs, homemade fries, orange-roasted carrots and sautéed green beans with bacon and shallots. Appetizer will be deep fried shrimp with my very spicy cocktail sauce. The fryer is gonna get a workout today, so I'm glad I just got mine done.


Also have to hang some blinds and drapes today, so I'll need to find time for that too.

Didn't realize there was full slate of bowl games on today.  B1G basketball is also solid today, with OOC games of Notre Dame, Butler, NC State, and Seton Hall.  Can get some more good looking wins today.  Buckeyes on at noon, they've been off for ten days.

I'm trying to figure out Christmas - having three girls equals a lot of sad looks at my bank account.  Not sure I'll make any food - made some pretty good lasagna the other day so probably heating that back up.

One of the Arizona State Alumni chapters happens to host their gamewatch parties right down the street from my new apartment, so today I’ll drop by for a few Pacificos.

Bucks were in good shape, then give up a 15-2 run to Bucknell to go in the half down 1. Looking a little sloppy.

Local small college from Sewer City, IA Morningside in the  NAIA National Title Game this afternoon vs Benedictine at  Daytona Stadium, Daytona Beach, Florida

Kick at 5 central, hoping to get it on the radio.  I'll be driving to Minneapolis.  It is on ESPN3

I had it on in the background, but started playing closer attention and I believe you are correct. 
They've had 3 10+ win seasons in their history. This one, the one that got CGA the Wisconsin job, and one in between.

Also discovered, while looking up that nugget, that they once had a coach named Professor Mayo. :111:

Should rename the New Orleans Bowl the UM-MSU Pain Bowl.  Appalachian State-Middle Tennessee

Why in the hell did ASU have yellow numbers on a yellow helmet???  
And if you've seen the polite mold creature on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, his new job is apparently as Tulane's mascot.

Going to be tough to find a team that plays dirtier than this Middle Tennessee team.

Valdosta edged Ferris in the D2 NC. 

FCS NCG will be NDSU vs E Washington on Jan 5.

Local paper says he just talked to the team a little before but was mostly uninvolved with the game.
Good on the USU kids for seeing half their coaching staff say "nah, this ain't our job," and deciding to go out and kick ass anyway.

And Georgia Southern
That bowl is a reminder that even the low-end bowls provide a lot if you want to look for the good.
GSU wins on a walk-off field goal.
GSU went from great, to awful, to 10 wins again as they readopted the option. They have a fun 900-yard runner at QB, three good backs and a solid little defense.
EMU is likely the worst program in FBS, but has managed two bowls in the past three seasons. They keep playing crazy close games.

Did I stumble across a field with red turf yesterday?  I switched channels after blinking a couple of times, though my TV had fritzed.

That was horrible.

You've never seen the blood field?

I think I saw they have like 13 losses over the past two years, and all but 1 have been one score losses, including 5 in OT.
No clue how nobody hasn't scooped up that coach.  That has been a dormant program for three decades.  Tough to be fifth fiddle in a state that doesn't produce much talent.

Those close games suggest a breakthrough could come eventually, and then he’s gone. 
I think it’s always had to sell a guy who doesn’t have actual record success. And his has context, which is usually lost. The weirdest thing with EMU the Ann Arbor proximity. He’s done quite a job.

Derek Dooley was a .500 coach out of the WAC when Tennessee scooped him up amongst an army of zero suitors.  Worked out well for the rest of the SEC, I’d say.
