But what will stick out in that game is the under throw of Blake in the closing minutes. And that's Graham in a nutshell.

Ugh...dipped his head at the last second.

Not with how we perform in the bowl games.

Can you please list the results of every Non-WMU MAC bowl game last year for me? No cheating.

Gee! Wow!!! Maybe we ARE one of the "P5 (sic) darlings"!!! We didn't play and didn't lose! LOL

Nobody cares about bowl games, including you except for when you use it as a reason to make yourself mad.

Question: Do you care about bowl games?

83% say yes.

*starts a thread that is 14 pages long about the possibility of playing in a bowl*

Yep, nobody cares.

We're all diehard NIU fans here. Of course I wanted NIU to play in a bowl game.

Nobody, outside of their own teams fanbaes, has any idea what teams do in bowls.

I'll ask again: without looking, tell me the results of MAC bowl games this year sans WMU

No doubt that WMU had the best team in the MAC last year, but one year does not a dynasty make. MAC history is filled with schools that build a MAC champion, then their coach moves on to greener pastures, the stars graduate, and they go right back to middle of the pack or worse (i.e. Miami '10, Buffalo '08, Akron '05, Miami '03). Let's see if the Broncos can make it back to Detroit five more times in the next five years before we compare them to the Huskies.

"Nobody, outside of their own teams fanbases, has any idea what teams do in bowls" is a completely different statement than "Nobody cares about bowl games"

And even that is inaccurate. I know what teams like Alabama, Clemson, Ohio St etc done in bowl games in recent years. You shouldn't speak in absolutes.

My wife watches Dancing with the Stars every week. She answered "Yes" to "Do you care about Dancing with the Stars?"

I asked her to name every contestant from this past season, which started on March 20th, she was able to name 7 out of 12 couples.

Having some kind of perfect memory is a weird way to gauge if someone cares about something.

I'll rephrase it more clearly than 7. For teams participating in anything but a major bowl, there is no lasting impression on the upcoming season from a minor bowl appearance the year before(save a few extreme circumstances). Nor should there be. It's suppose to be a relatively even match up in a glorified exhibition game.
