2016 Poinsettia Bowl

Post by Ddawg » Wed Dec 21, 2016 12:57 pm

Kick-off is 7 hours away in San Diego.
BYU is a 10 point favorite over Wyoming.
The Over/Under is 56 points. Expect a wild game.
There are about 400 (396 to be exact) tickets available on StubHub. Ranging from $28 to $999 ea.
Wyoming is no slouch this year.

Let's go Cougar Nation!
Go Cougs!

No. I'm here in So. Cal at home. Raining right now. Not going to the game. Thought about it. Would rather save 4 hours on the road and support the Cougs from my Family Room with my 30 oz Yeti cup full of Coke Zero and a big bag of Frito scoop chips. Ha ha!

I have high expectations for TM and the Cougs tonight. I expect it to be a very tough game.

I have a feeling, from the lack of true excitement on the Cougar sports boards, that this will be one of our least attended bowl games in awhile. I've not seen that usual level of shout-outs among the fans of what seats they will be in, etc. I know I'm probably sounding like a recording, but I believe it has everything to do with Wyoming as our opponent, and that has nothing to do with the fact that I believe the fans respect Wyoming's potential to beat BYU. It's still Wyoming and we simply do not have the proper respect of the actual school, which dates back many, many decades.

I only hope the team, who generally doesn't have this same background as many of the Cougar fans, don't take this game lightly. Personally as a fan, this season I've seen too many opportunities to win where my Cougars haven't risen enough to the occasion and have lost a close game.

To me, it feels that same with with BB this season.

I'm expecting a win, but I won't be surprised if Wyoming pulls an upset. I'm afraid they have a bit much more invested in a win.

Grrrrrr ...... I think your assessment is spot on.

I know Wyoming is good this year. (Hey, they beat both Boise St. and San Diego St. in close games (lost their 2nd match-up to San Diego St.). I remember Wyoming being a doormat forever. Not any more. This year they are very tough. I hope The Cougs are mentally up for the game. I think mistakes and turnover could be the difference tonight.

Stupid lowering his head there. Glad for the interception after, negating the stupid play.

Ditto. The slide was obvious.
