Bowl Game Blowout! Open Thread for the GMAC Bowl


1/6/10 at 7:00 PM EST
Mobile, Alabama


Initial Thoughts: I'd rather be at the Charles Barkley speech than watch the actual game.
Most Awesome Player: Dan LeFevour (285/401 for 3,043 yards, 27 touchdowns, 6 interceptions; 174 rushes for 701 yards and 14 touchdowns)
Most Awesome SponsorRed Lobster. Because I'm a big fan of endless shrimp.



The Line: Central Michigan by 4
Over/Under: 63
Chad Millman's blog says: I made a play on the over. Central Michigan averaged 70 plays a game and Troy averaged 73. Anytime you get out of the 60s you got teams playing a lot of offense. Troy ranked 117th in pass defense and gave up a 62 percent completion rate, that was against Sun Belt competition, which means they have a good chance of getting worked over by a team with four-year starters at quarterback and wide receiver.
Accuscore says: Central Michigan 35.4, Troy 31.1
ESPN says: Troy 42, Central Michigan 38
Who you should be rooting for: Whichever team Charles Barkley roots for.
