Tabloids double up on BIG LEAST

New York Daily News New York Post

Isn’t it though?

It was almost worse too, Villanova needed overtime and refs to beat Robert Morris. Penn State CRUSHED Bobby Mo this season. It is always fun when Notre Dame loses too. I don’t have much of an opening on Georgetown, other than Penn State fans were out cheering at Verizon Center for a good part of a 2004 game.

Oh and I’m in the last place in the bracket I put together. Clearly, the 3 minutes I put into it were a waste.

D.C. bowl game to Nationals Park

The first Congressional Bowl between Navy (if they win six games) and the ACC 9th place team (!) will be at Nationals Park on December 20 (The Post). RFK Stadium, which hosted the Redskins for over 35 seasons was also considered. I would have preferred RFK Stadium because it has an actual football field designed into it and is completely enclosed and wouldn’t have been fun to see some midshipmen rocking the movable stands? However, the seating layout would only be better there than at Nationals Park for fans on the lower level. Those seats at RFK are oriented for football, but the upper deck is shaped for baseball, so the sightlines are not much better than the upper deck at Nationals Park. Other pluses for having the game at Nationals Park include the HD scoreboard and food.

I may go this game, we’ll see. I would almost certainly cheer for Navy, who would be my third favorite college football team if I had one.

D.C. gets bowl game

NCAA Approves Bowl for WashingtonThe Post
Yesterday, the NCAA approved the Congressional Bowl, a new game to be played in Washington. The 2008 edition will be December 20 at either Nationals Park or RFK Stadium. Navy has signed on, provided they win the necessary six games, for this year and Army for 2009. The ACC would send the other team.

Hopefully, the game will be in RFK Stadium; wouldn’t it be great to see Midshipmen or Cadets making the stands rock?

Bad news Buckeyes

I’m picking Ohio State to win tonight. We’ve seen what happens when I pick NFL Playoff games though.

I think Ohio State will win because they have as much talent as anyone. They have a big game coach who has already won a national title at Ohio State and several at Youngstown State in I-AA. The Buckeyes have a bad taste in their mouths after getting blown out in last year’s title game. Unlike last year, the Michigan game wasn’t the biggest game of all time. There wasn’t a circus involving whether their coach would stay or not and their defensive coordinator hasn’t been dividing his time between that job and a new head coaching job. Ohio State will also be motivated by the lack of respect that they have gotten this year.

Don’t forget to check out BuckeyeBuzz.com, which I helped build.

NHL in Beaver Stadium?

I always through it would be pretty cool if there was a “battle for Pennsylvania” at Penn State’s Beaver Stadium between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. Now I find out from Eric McErlain of Fanhouse that the Flyers are considering hosting the Pengyunz at Beaver Stadium next season. Michigan State did this in 2001 when they hosted Michigan.

Forgive the pun, but that would very cool, even though I can’t stand either team. People still talk about what State College was like during the 2000 playoffs between the two teams, apparently it was quite a scene. I had graduated by then. Hopefully, this could be used as an opportunity to advance the cause of varsity hockey at Penn State. A well-placed source at Penn State told me that the money is there for a new arena, but the administration wants to hold off on building for a few years.
