Day 2 of the Long March: New Orleans Bowl open chat

Really, you're going to watch this? Memphis (7-5) versus Florida Atlantic (7-5). Good for you.

Florida Atlantic, in its third season of Division I-A football, won the Sun Belt Conference this year and that gave them a spot in the first of three bowl games to be played in the Lousiaina Superdome this season. The Owls, in their brief history, have won only one game against a team from a BCS conference and that was Minnesota this year. Florida Atlantic also beat Hawai'i in 2004.

Memphis is 5-1 alltime in bowl games. Their first win was in the 1952 Burley Bowl (burley is a type of tobacco grown in the area) over East Tennessee State. That was played in Johnson City, Tennesee. Then there was the Tigers trip to Pasadena in 1971 to play in the Rose Bowl. Except it wasn't for the Rose Bowl, but rather the Pasadena Bowl on December 18, and Memphis (then Memphis State) beat San Jose State, 28-9.

The Tigers won the New Orleans Bowl in 2003 over North Texas State, then lost to Bowling Green in the 2004 GMAC Bowl, and beat Akron in the 2005 Motor City Bowl.

I will be watching tomorrow's game that Memphis plays in.

I am "watching" this one too, but that means its on in one room with the sound off while I cook dinner in the other.

Yes I'm cooking dinner at 9:00 at night.

And I'm using alot of hot sauce too, thank you very much.

50 points in the first half. Will there be 50 points total in the first half of the Memphis game tomorrow?

I can't imagine that Florida Atlantic has more than a few hundred fans there. How many Florida Atlantic fans can there be?

George Allen was a wise old owl.
I wish that he were still around. Wouldn't he make an interesting coaching candidate today? He started coaching Whittier College and finshied at Long Beach State.
