King Hippo

What wagers can I get horribly wrong today??

Gator Bowl – Louisville v. Mississippi State (Noon, ESPN)

Such a shame that Dan Mullen won’t be around for this, as would make for a great coaching matchup.  Ville have been disappointing all season long, though, and I don’t see any reason why that should stop today.

Liberty Bowl – Iowa State v. Memphis (12:30, ABC)

I guess Memphis is favoured because…de facto home game?  Iowa State beat Oklahoma on the road, what exactly is the Tiggers’ claim to fame, other than another Paxton Lynch clone at QB?

Fiesta Bowl – Washington v. Paedo State (4:00, ESPN)

Surprisingly (to me), the B1G is doing very, very well in exhibition play, and the PAC 12+ is falling on they faces.  I…wouldn’t expect this to be the matchup that changes that narrative, as much as I would like that outcome.

I’m sure you’re all wondering why I gathered you here. It is to field proposals on JUST HOW an expanded playoff system would work fo college. Where do you play the games? And when? There are no wrong ideas in brainstorming, but if your idea stinks you’ll be ejected from the plane that this super villan boardroom is located in.

Speaking of the vomit in my mouth that was that last play, have there been any truly Boise St-esque levels of insanity this bowl season? I haven’t seen any.

Hook and lateralception! Where he could’ve just gone out of bounds!

m’Kay. That was….interesting.

I suspect they didn’t practice that.

Wow UDub QB. Just wow.
I want you to fuck up and even I feel bad for you at this point.

UW has like 2 plays….3 tops.

So, can I call the FG return?

rockingdog

sure!

theeWeeBabySeamus

great googly moogly

Senor Weaselo

I don’t see why Washington doesn’t call the time-out anyway. If you hold them and get it back I’d rather have 1:15 and 2 TOs than :35 and all three.

Senor Weaselo
Member

The answer is because they already did and they can’t light up the TOs well enough, THANKS ESPN.

Short.
Go for it, plz.
Tick tock.

Rockingdog reminded me of this, have we gotten a Wildcats vs. Wildcats Bowl Edition yet?

Ahh the old bowl game breakdown by conference record. Pointless and meaningless when it doesn’t suit you, and the most important thing and OH MY GOD MY CONFERENCE IS SO DISRESPECTED when it does suit you.

theeWeeBabySeamus
Member

Fuck my conference.
My team won.

A record today for Penn State for most offense in a bowl game.

Their record for most offenses off the field, however, remains unlikely to be challenged any time soon.

Clever sponsorship ideas: If not Tostitos, Taco Bell, Chipotle, Del Taco, etc., why hasn’t Ford sponsored the Fiesta Bowl? That thing’ll assault beaches!

Yea dude. It is still weird to me that playstation sponsors the fiesta bowl….

That dude’s gotta be Samoan…right?

Could be Tongan…

This was a great joke. I forgot to credit BFC for it, though. I’ll fix that.

I think he credited himself already.

The Browns are going to draft Barkley #1 and he is going to tear both ACLs getting off the escalator at his introductory press conference.

Remember when the Geico Gecko was miffed about being confused with the car insurance company? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Is the arm waving thing the new “cereal bowl feed me” gesture? If so, I say bring it on. I’ll just be moving my mouth like this and we’ll see who wins

Hopefully you get a better result than Homer does immediately after this gif ends.

I’ve decided to stay far far away from Wiscy/daU tonight re: betting.
My inclination would be to take Wiscy ATS if the spread was slightly smaller. But nope, -6.5 is too big for that one. And moneyline is useless too.

I’ll take my ill gotten wins today (don’t fuck me Penn State…hehehe, get it?) and roll it onto something tomorrow.

I was reading through the comments over on this week’s non-Magary Magary NFL column, and somebody made a comment that was very disrespectful of this site. What the fuck, man? This site is cool with me…

theeWeeBabySeamus

I bet I can guess who it was.
If I’m right….don’t worry about it.

Actually, the commenter accused Will Leitch of being Unsurprised here at DFO. I’m unfamiliar with the history, assume at some point in the past there was a schism of some kind. There’s always some bitterness

Leitch wishes he were me.

the sponsor logo is way too big. it shouldn’t be larger than the Bowl name.
