...also known as the Podunk Short Order Chicken****.com Bowl vs. Directional State U.
 
10:15 PM eastern time kickoff against a two-bit opponent in a random December bowl.
 
Good times.

I'm not even going to burn a vacation day and take the night off work. I'll just DVR it and watch it the next day.

I'll be in Chicago that day and have a date with the American Girl doll store the next morning (and not the Bears game).  Hello, Bar Louie!!!

Jeezus Christmas, this crew just doesn't want to let me off easy.
 
No practical reason not to go--20 minutes away in a stadium I have never watched a game in--yet there is no way I can stomach this sh!tshow in person.
 
Let me know who's going from here and that may give me no choice but to go.  I'll just get baked and/or hammered and take the spectacle like a man.
 
GO BLUE!

Thanks but no thanks.  Such a terrible kickoff time for both fan bases.  I'm looking forward to Dave Brandon talking this up like it's the best bowl game this season.

boo hoo to all of you guys at 7-5 we're damn lucky not to go to the pinstipe bowl or worse yet the little squeeler bowl right here in Daytwa. We get practices and the kids get to go to a beautiful area of the country not in the Midwest. Do I like 7-5 and some dumb-a$$ed bowl named after something stupid?? Well duh.

no kidding.  We were freaking 7-5 and have a terrible traveling fan base.  Why would anyone choose us to go to a NY day bowl?
 
 
Take the 15 practices and beat KState.  Let's do this!!!!!  I'll stay up and watch it because I'm not a big baby

Umm what?!  Michigan is one of the best traveling fan bases in the country. 
 
We get an extra month of practices which this team sorely needs.

Embarrassing........but it is what it is......... And it was expected. I got the B10 going 2-5 in their bowl games, with the only win being us and Minnesota.

I've always heard UM has to return bowl tickets and doesn't travel well.  It's possible I've gotten wrong information, but it doesn't change the fact everyone is complaining about the bowl we're going to with only having a 7 win season.  Just sick of all the freaking whining and complaining this year.

Hey,
Don't forget NDSU beat Minnesota twice a couple of years ago.
How we know how Florida felt the year we lost to App St.

I'm actually good with playing K-state. Nice switch.

I just searched and couldn't find any record of Michigan ever having played K-State, so that's something.
 
I was hoping UM would've played K-State in a BC$ Bowl after the 2011 season as a match-up of the two best running QBs in the country, but they drew VaTech instead.
 
As far as this season, the Wildcats beat just two teams with a winning record, only one of which was from a BC$ conference, TxTech. Unlike Michigan, they seemed to play better down the stretch, winning 5 of their last 6 games.
 
Michigan only beat two teams with winning records in 2013 as well--ND and Minnesota, while losing 5 of their last 7.
 
K-State runs the ball a little better than UM, but UM throws it better.  Both teams average over 33 points/game on offense, with KSU allowing almost 3 points fewer per game on D.
 
Looks like a fairly even match-up.

Michigan always travels well.  It's the reason bowls will pick a 7-5 M team over an 8-4 other team.  We just have to go 8-4 to land on New Year's Day every year.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl selects ahead of the Gator Bowl, so they actually took the Wolverines over Nebraska and Minnesota (even though the Maize and Blue finished with a worse record). It is a late Saturday Night game, something that the P12 does all season long. It really isn't the worst thing that could've happened. They ended up in a favorable matchup that could create momentum into the offseason.
 
Not sure anyone has drawn the drawn the parallels yet, but 2013 Michigan is looking A LOT like 2012 MSU:
1 point loss to OSU
3-5 Conference Record
BWW Bowl to conclude the season.
The Winged Helmets will rise again!

And I'm quite sure he is a LARGE part of the reason for the success of the BWW in AA.

He is one of their largest independent financial supporters. He likes to call his games from there, what is the difference in watchjng a big screen vs being in the box really? Plus beer makes him not only drive better, but makes him call games better too.

Nobody has that long of a reach. ;)
 
Our offense in 2014 should parallel MSU's this year but our defense?  Yeah, not so much.

The Michigan fan base always travels well and shows up. The problem recently is that Michigan fans are buying tickets for the game...just not through UM. They can get them cheaper on stub hub, or they buy them directly from the Bowl Game.

MSU also lost their horrific offensive coordinator. Let's hope we mirror them in that aspect as well.

Are you going to the game?  Against my better judgment I'm actually considering it.  I'm trying to figure out if I can drag a client with me and subsidize the trip, so to speak.  So far I haven't found any K-State fans in the Greater Los Angeles area. ;)

My parents and sister (who live in Tempe) bought tickets yesterday and got me some too. Surprise, come to AZ. Great, they walk to the stadium and I gotta drop a couple G's to get the family out there. I think I'm losing this deal...

Not sure. My wife wants to and since it's a Saturday, I don't even have the excuse of needing to get up early the next day.

I believe in voting with my feet, though, and this program doesn't deserve a dime with all the stupid decisions they are making right now. I'm going to take the wait-and-see approach, but will likely end up buying tix through Groupon as they will inevitably be made available.

LMK if you're coming to town and we'll grab some suds.
