And Speaking of Bowl Games . . .

Our sympathies go out to the Western Kentucky fans, who saw their beloved Hilltoppers fall to Central Michigan 24-21 in the Motor City Bowl.  WKU had a fourth and 2 with at the Central Michigan 19 with a minute to go.  Rather than kick a field goal for the tie, the Tops went for the first down.  They didn't make it, and that was the game.  The move doesn't make much sense to me, but I suppose the Tops hate overtime as much as I do, and I have to respect that.

I will predict that before 2013 is over, UK fans will wish that their team had hired Bobby Petrino instead of letting him go to Western.

  1. I really, really think I might've seen Bobby Petrino at the Madisonville Cracker Barrel on the Tuesday before Christmas. It sure looked like him, anyway, but this guy was wearing an Iowa State football sweatsuit.
