Alamo Bowl

You ever hear someone say, “that was a great game”, but you knew it wasn’t?
I kept hearing that last night when I was on my way home from the Alamo Bowl. I was the guy saying nothing, because it was not a great game. It was one thoroughly overmatched team being allowed back into the game by a series of imaginary calls. Kansas State had no business being on a field with UCLA. Way, way too much speed, and K-State couldn’t stop the run.
You and I know, the only people who cared about last night’s Alamo Bowl were the teams (obviously, there were players on both sides gunning for each other, even on the final kneel down of the game), some scouts and Vegas. A game 31-6 at the half ends 40-35 because those officials chose to get involved and make that game close. I guess they didn’t want the multitude of K-State fans attending the event to go downtown and get liquored up. Like that wasn’t going to happen anyway.

I don’t get it, officials. You were throwing flags all over the place earlier in the game. Didn’t that play deserve one?

I guess it didn’t affect the point spread. Don’t know where they got those officials from but they’d do well without bringing them back again.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
