I'm not a massive college football fan, but last night was pretty damn exciting. My alma mater, the University at Buffalo (State University of New York) upset previously undefeated and nationally ranked Ball State for the Mid-American Conference championship (MAC).

And we got to watch it all the way out here in California thanks to the wonders of ESPN.

So what does this mean for the Bulls? Well, they get to go to their first ever Bowl game, and word is they've accepted an invitation to the International Bowl up in Toronto. Wave to them KristieJ!

Between getting two college degrees, I lived in Buffalo just under 6 years - and during that entire time I think the football team won about 6 games. So yeah, last night was highly entertaining, and a huge turn-around. Congratulations boys! Woo-frickin'-Hoo!

Woo Woo! I don't usually watch college ball, and certainly my college, which was too small for football, will never play a bowl game, but how cool is that?

Congrats, Wendy's team!

I have been pulling for Buffalo this year because of their coach, Turner Gill. he used to play and coach for my favorite college, Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Congrats! I'm a bigger NFL fan(go Titans!!!) than college ball, but I'm an SEC fan. Really wish Alabama could have pulled off a win yesterday against Florida.

Lori said...

Yeah, wish I could say the same about my CU Buffs....

As you might recall, I gave a knee and several toes playing football for our beloved bulls. I will be attending the game with a cast of characters you might recall. We will eat some wings, and drink way too much in your honor!

Buffalo Bulls...MAC Champs...who would'a thought?

This is how little I follow college football - but I'd never heard of the guy. Although according to My Man, Syracuse is now sniffing around him. Lord knows their program needs help.

Liza: You and My Man both. He loathes Urban Meyer to the very depths of his soul. Seriously.....loathes. And congrats to your Titans, who clinched their division this weekend!

Ox: Ooooh, so jealous you're going to the game! You'll get to eat real wings and drink good Canadian beer! I'm green. Say howdy to the whole gang for me. And honestly, I don't think any of you need to use me as an excuse to drink too much. Just sayin'.

Sir-Ox-A-Lot said...'re common law should know it is always best to have a reason why you are acting like a fool. And in my case the more reasons the better as Melissa has heard all my common excuses.


Wendy said...

Ox: LOL! Well, I'm not sure how the Wendy Excuse will work. I can just see you trying to explain to Melissa, "Dear, I had all that beer because I had to throw a few back in Wendy's honor."

Good luck with that.....
