Day 15 of the Long March: GMAC Bowl chat
2008-01-06 16:30

Seriously now, you're watching this one. Why? Compulsive gambling got you in its hold? If so, get your money down on the GMAC Bowl, coming to you from Mobile at 5 pm PT matching up Tulsa (9-4) and Bowling Green (8-4). The Golden Hurricane are 4.5-5 point favorites.

The Falcons play in the Mid-American Conference which is 0-2 in bowl games with losses by Central Michigan and Ball State. Bowling Green lost its first three bowl games, but has won its last four, the last one coming in the 2004 edition of this game against Memphis.

Tulsa lost to Central Florida in the Conference USA championship game. C-USA teams are 1-4 in bowls with East Carolina getting a win and UCF, Southern Miss, Memphis, and Houston all losing. Tulsa is 5-9 in bowl games, highlighted by a 26-12 win over Georgia Tech in the 1945 Orange Bowl. Or possibly the 28-17 win over San Diego State in the 1991 Freedom Bowl.

The two schools have never met before.

The National Championship game tomorrow will pale in comparison to the awesomeness that is this one.

I think it's time to go watch a DVD.

It wouldn't be a Long March without games like this.

I watched about five minutes, saw Bowling Green fumble and then watched "Eastern Promises."

Wow. Glad I watched Iron Chef America repeats last night. And I work at U Toledo (BGSU's rival)
