thebowl.challenge: four games to go!

I'm on the run, so I'm not gonna say much about the actual football that occurred this weekend, mostly because I actually, physically watched the games with almost everyone who will read this. I will say this, however: I like Boise, and despite losing like 28 points on that game, I am glad they won. But let's not get too crazy with the love, and remember that 1.) it took numerous turnovers and a frankly listless Oklahoma team that played the first half as if they knew they had nothing to gain from winning in order for BSU to jump out to their big lead, and 2.) once Oklahoma turned things on in the fourth quarter, BSU didn't have a chance in hell at stopping the Sooner offense and had to resort to backyard trickeration shenanigans in order to move the ball on offense. That game gets played 10 times, and the Sooners win 9. The Bronco victory essentially showed us something that we all already knew: Boise State is a very good football team who, if they get enough breaks, can probably beat just about anyone in a "one game" scenario. Also the end was really goddamn fun to watch.

In Challenge news, whew boy, what a clusterfuck we have at the top. Ciao.

DAMMIT JACK!!! Did my last post comment mean nothing?! I worked hard to get such a low score in this challenge. In fact, I think my futility should be least with some kind of recognition...please....
