Today happens to be Humbug Day (the day you are supposed to be grumpy and mean, and get all of that out of your system before the actual Christmas holiday). It also happens to be the day when three Mountain West teams have bowl games. Here’s a rundown of them so far.
New Mexico Bowl
Colorado State (the Rams) have been playing waaay above themselves, and are actually looking good against Washington State. With two minutes left in the game, they are down 45-37, and have a chance to positively respond to a possible turnover by the Cougs. They have been representing the MWC pretty well. Good for them.
Update: CSU just scored. Needs a 2-point conversion to tie. WaSU uses their last timeout. Wow – the Rams run Statue Left. Called no good at first, after the review it’s obvious he hit the pylon. We are tied. CSU kicks off – fumble! CSU kicks winning field goal.
Wow. Good for you Colorado State!
Fresno, on the other hand, is doing what they always do – f**k up a big game. It’s right after halftime, and the Bulldogs are down to USC 35-13. Man, why does Fresno always do this?
Eh, 3rd quarter’s almost over. USC 38, Fresno 13.
Update: Fresno laid an egg. Again. USC 45 Fresno 20. Figures.
Well, I guess it’s started, but ESPN hasn’t yet jumped to it because the New Mexico bowl is still going.
Ah, now we’re here…
End of first quarter, SDSU is up 7-0. Looking positive. The Aztecs are playing their usual brand of smash-mouth, and are doing pretty well. (Boy, they cleaned the snow off the blue turf. Not a trace from what I can see).
Update: Wow. San Diego rolled Buffalo. 49-24, and it wasn’t really that close. Good job SDSU. So, does that indicate the MWC just might be better than the MAC?
is out for BSU. First, suspended for a practice in Hawaii, then sent back home on a plane. Stupid. Patti was also suspended for the practice, but was reinstated (apparently).
Given the fact that Southwick was sent back home, I’m guessing he may have been arrested or something like that, rather than just violating team or curfew rules.
I’m not thinking we’re going to have much of a day against Oregon State on Tuesday.
So, the Mountain West went 2-1 today. Maybe not so humbug after all!
