Knee-Jerk Reactions – First Day of Bowl Season Edition

– Ranking yesterday’s bowls in order of awesomeness: 1.) New Orleans Bowl (ULL vs. SDSU), 2.) Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Ohio vs. Utah State), 3.) New Mexico Bowl (Temple vs. Wyoming).

– They were all true college football and each better than the last.

– The situation with Mike Caputo’s alleged DUI seems sketchy. Expecting him to play the Capital One Bowl.

– Eric Martin and Colin McDermott are questionable. McDermott hasn’t ever seen the field and he’s a junior, though.
– The longer a defensive coordinator is not named, the sickness gets worse.

– Here’s hoping Andrew Rodriguez is able to suit up for the Capital One Bowl. Nebraska’s going to need depth to smash heads with a very talented defensive line to open up holes for Burkhead.

– Unfortunately, Nebraska quarterback commit Tommy Armstrong didn’t win the state championship. A couple of mischievous squirrels decided to steal the show, though:

– For those who watched and are wondering, the fan wearing a Miami Hurricanes cap was holding up a 1965 copy of Sports Illustrated with Frank Solich on the cover behind the victorious coach. Why it had nothing to do with the 2001 Rose Bowl, I have no idea.

– Louisiana-Lafayette’s strength coach got his head busted open, but remained on the sidelines and chilled. Is it any wonder why I enjoy Ragin’ Cajun football?

– Seriously, if you can catch a replay of the New Orleans or Potato Bowl, do so.
