Initial Post-U$C Thoughts

1.  My first thought is SCREW YOU ‘SC.  I’m really tired of this program and its fanbase treating “knocking players out of the game” as its animating principal.  For an example, see Conquest Chronical’s Q&A with CGB the other day.  If you need another example, try having a conversation with a U$C fan without them making some reference to the hit Desean Jackson took against […]

Which Conference Proved The Most in Bowl Season?

Extending with our deep and important discussion from regular season into bowl season, which conference had the toughest slate of opponents? Which conference had it easy goings? Well let’s look at the bowl performance. We can get a good examination by taking a look at this chart, with each row featuring a game, starting with […]

Armed Forces Bowl Torrent

Saw the ESPN replay last night–should have an abbreviated writeup soon. For now, click here and you can watch the whole game for yourself. Enjoy. (As always, special thanks to chicagoaubear from The Bear Insider) You will need some ISO burning software to view the files, which I guess could be either Nero or one […]

We Won? We Won!

I was in an airport in Buffalo, saw Air Force 21 Cal 7 flash on the ESPNNews TV, and thought “Oh, no, not again”. I just decided it was best to memory wipe this season and snore next to some fat lady in Crocs for the flight, hoping to meditate the suffering away. Then after […]

You know what’s fun? Liveblogs, that’s what! Don’t really have much else to do this Saturday night. And I love me some bowl action. 5:15–UCLA is one of the fiercest, fastest defenses in the Pac-10…but it’s bowl season, so what do you expect? Miss one tackle, miss another, miss another on a kick return. 5:17–FUMMMBLE! […]

A Merry Christmas for Cal Football!

Don’t feel too bad for the players. Take a look at the lovely gift package the Armed Forces Bowl extracted for Air Force and Cal players: Slingbox SOLO, Timely Watch Co. watch, Armor Gear rolling duffle bag, and (haha) ball. I guess my question about the ball is what type of ball? Plastic? Rubber? Football? […]

Bowling Time

I have no concrete plans for how much I’ll be covering bowls this year. Hell, I might not even watch Cal’s bowl game–not because I don’t want to, but I’ll probably be on a plane for the majority of the game.  I’m going to be traveling this holiday season to see old friends, and I […]

On the BCS, Part II

I’m sure you already know the story. Missouri got HOSED. HOSED I say! Chase Daniel is a Heisman finalist damnit! Sadly, in a month no one will remember their cries. The reward for the #1 team the next-to-last week of the season is to face Darren McFadden in what’s basically his NFL audition. This will […]

Cal to the Armed Forces Bowl

The BCS looks like it’s snubbed Arizona State, sending them to the Holiday Bowl to face Texas. East coast bias strikes again! Thanks again Tom Hansen, you worthless douchebag. Enjoy rubbing one out to your precious volleyball matches. That leaves the following projections. Holiday: ASU Sun: Oregon Emerald: Oregon State Las Vegas: UCLA Armed Forces: […]

My Poll of 25…and BCS Projections, Week 14

Figures that the moment I put Kansas and LSU in the title game, both of them lose. What a great season it’s been for a college football fan. Well, at least for one who doesn’t gamble like a square (that’s actually every season, but you know what I mean). Submit your Top 25 (or 20 […]
