NC A&T beat Alcorn St in the Celebration Bowl.
That was on Saturday, right? I think I had it on in the background whilst cooking.

Yeah. I had forgotten about it. 

I wonder if anyone was flagged for excessive celebration in the Celebration Bowl?

Solich closes out another nine-win season. He’s been very solid to good at a very bad job. Good on him.

Is it a bad job?  I would think Ohio would be one of the better MAC jobs.

Idaho is a beautiful state.  It's not well known, but the territory was originally settled by a lady of ill repute
I guess Idaho sounded better than Skanky-ho

There are some really good players on G5 teams (duh) and when one of them gets a great QB and a decent OL and perhaps a solid RB and WR, they can get dangerous, especially with a wonky offense.

If I coached a G5 program, I'd look for that "athlete" playing QB who was being passed over or offered safety as a position by the Bigs and craft a wonky offense that leveraged his abilities, sounds like UCF.

In a battle of actual mascots I'd have to think that a Thundering Herd would be heavily favored over a Bull.

Solich is a solid coach and a derned fine man

not sure he was going to win conference championships at UNL, he hasn't won too many MAC championships

Ohio U was lucky if they won one or two games per season before Solich showed up. Dude is working miracles at that place.

You’d think, but for some reason no. Between 1977 and Solich’s arrival, they went 96-109. They had five winning seasons, an 8-3, a 7-4 and three 6-5s.
Grobe went 33-33 with the 8-3, 7-4 and one 6-6 and got Wake Forest. Outside him, one coach was 31-34-1 and the next best was 11-35.

EDIT: That should be 96-209

The previous coach said it was nearly impossible to convince urban players to play in the hills of southeast Ohio.

Weird. Athens is probably the most fun MAC campus.  Apples to apples I'd probably go there if I had offers from all the MAC schools

Daytime sports are one of the best parts of these couple weeks.  There is less basketball than I would have thought, but seemingly a bowl game every day at 1.  FIU-Toledo is near the bottom of my interest list, but BYU-WMU, I might tune in there.

Watching the Blue Potato Field Bowl from Boise. Outside of Boise State (obviously) BYU is the most followed team in Idaho, and it's not at all a long drive for the critical mass of BYU fans in SLC & Provo. So maybe, yeah, the matchup is bad, but the Potato Bowl wins by getting a fanbase who'll show up. Reminds me of the Arizona bowl "winning" by getting New Mexico State last year, a fanbase more than excited to make the 4 hour drive to Tucson. Meanwhile, how does the Independence Bowl expect any fans for their Temple Vs Duke matchup?

toledo got robbed by the refs on a 4th down spot with about 3 minutes left in the game

not saying they would have tied it up with a FG or won it with a TD, but they would have had decent field position at their own 32 and enough time

We're having our first party in the new digs tonight. I'm making carnitas, Swedish meatballs and mini smoky links in the crescent roll thingies. Well, not really. My wife is doing the mini links things. I've no patience for that job.

Daughter is coming home from UNL this afternoon

She asked me to make my competition chili for her and the boyfriend

Headed to the casino this morning for a couple hours of swing practice on the golf simulator.  Gotta stay loose, my annual trip to Texas to visit my brother and play some golf is coming up

Wife's mom & stepdad are down from Oregon. We're doing Christmas day with them, but only have the kids until Christmas morning, so we're having them over for dinner.

I'm going to smoke beef short ribs all day. Wife will be baking Christmas cookies most of the day. She'll make bruschetta as an app, and Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes as a side. Should be a solid meal!

You have to appreciate the Ohio turnpike still having lane closures due to construction with no construction workers present on the weekend before Christmas I'm probably the busiest travel day of the year.  They always make you earn their wonderful rest stops
