    Fresh meat, fresh meat, fresh meat.

    :lol3

    Welcome to the game dwes! Just for the record, we kid around and enjoy ourselves.

    For example, we don't handicap or give extra points to anyone although we do recognize that you're from Ohio and are therefore deserving.

    Cheers!

    Just making sure... you do understand the confidence points thing? If not read on Yahoo how to do it. If still confused come here and we'll explain it in a way impossible to understand.

    I'm confident, we confidently answer any question on confidentiality he may or may not have. Or, we will give some inspiring sarcasm that will make udder sense. No matter what, you will be no worse off than anyone else at the final bell.

    If you are all warm and fuzzy about your selection, give it a lot of confidence points.
    If you are feeling sick to your stomach about your selection, not so many points.
    If you have no stinking idea about either of the teams....punt. Least points.

    Holy crap there are a lot of Bowls. Were there really that many teams worthy of a bowl? Who the hell is UTSA? Well I'm going to take the mighty UTSA's.



    I know who UCF is because I went there.

    Booo Hisssss Booooo Hisssssss

    Oh, actually they are a classsy joint. If they weren't playing one of "my" teams I'd be cheering for them. I went to watch my nephew (Tulane) play against them a couple of years back. My San Antonio cousin couldn't go and none of the SA ADVers were into Football. So alone I went.

    Wearing Tulane Hat and T-shirt. Invited for beer and shots at two different tail-gailts. When I was first in the stadium, before I located the Tulane section, more than one "Thank you for traveling here."---- I have nothing but respect for UTSA's fans. :thumb

    Not surprising. I was stationed at Lackland for a few years. Back then, I could get into the Spurs games at the Hemisfair Arena (top row, nosebleed) with my military ID for $1. :gerg I also worked part-time at a local hospital and cycled all over the area. Nothing but great memories.
