In case anyone has missed this earlier in the thread and since I have received numerous emails and questions.
For the most part early in the bowl season there have been a bunch of plays that really have or not been considered strong.
We have destroyed the totals this year and that record is near flawless. But the sides have been hit and miss. Although at first it seems disappointing but not many of the plays are even considered solid and are basically opinions. So the good news is the best is yet ahead. Copying it below which was posted a while back and may have been missed. If you care. Happy New Year!
Basically here is the guide to the bowl season for Spooky. Weighted from the strongest play to the weakest play. Obviously it is not that cut and dry but a great guide and the stronger plays there is nothing that will change that.
I have of course already went nuts with Wisconsin and Stanford, both as money line dogs and Virginia is right there as well.
Usually the stronger plays do not win any more often than the other strong plays but it is a guide. As you can see Temple, Ohio and last night Boise State all won and they were one of the strongest plays of the bowl season. Its when you get to the weaker plays that there is a lot more that gets subjective.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. Be safe and have a great holiday weekend.

Louisiana Tech 0.3 TCU
Missouri PK North Carolina
The numbers continue to be just right there. Not many strong plays early although we did cash Ohio, Temple, Boise State and Florida State as our early big plays losing only with Western Michigan and Florida International as a big play. Which shows the difference in positive units won. We have had some really tough losses, seriously still think Western Michigan was so much best and a few games we only lost due to the horrendous turnover differential. And how about Washington last night. How the heck do we not cash that ticket. The totals have been just killing it and I am being very conservative in the grading approach since many of the totals are worth more than 1 unit. Either way hope it just gets better as we go along. Especially with some stronger plays coming up. I also should have posted some team totals that have done well. Instead of playing a side and total its sometimes best to just play the team total. Many of you guys know that is another strategy I utilize Mr. Donorman.
Here is the Spoky Bowl updated records after the Washington/Baylor game.
Friday's List of 13: Wrapping up the early bowls.........
Here are some thoughts I’ve had about the early bowl games, through the Alamo Bowl on Thursday night……..
14) Best Game—UL-Lafayette 32, San Diego State 30 (New Orleans Bowl)—Kid on ULL booted a 50-yard FG at the gun to win it, after Aztecs were penalized because one of their linemen spit on a Ragin’ Cajun lineman, to try and get him to jump offside.
13) Best game, runnerup—Toledo 42, Air Force 41—Rockets scored TDs on plays of 41-49-33 yards, ran a kick back for a TD, had a defensive TD and won still only won by a point, in a game played outdoors. In the East. At night.
12) Worst effort—Arizona State lost 56-24 to Boise State in Las Vegas Bowl, giving up two defensive scores and having opening kick returned for a TD. You tell me Western Kentucky couldn’t have done better?
11) Best QB whose dad played in major leagues—Ohio U QB Tyler Tettleton led Bobcats to their first-ever bowl win, 24-23 over Utah State in the Idaho Potato Bowl, leading a TD in the last minute to win it. Utah State lost despite running ball for 345 yards, which doesn’t happen much.
10) Least passes thrown in a bowl so far--- Temple waxed Wyoming 37-15 in the New Mexico Bowl, despite completing only 8-12 passes, albeit for 169 yards (14.1 ypa, 21.1 ypc). Only team that might throw fewer than 12 passes rest of bowl season is Georgia Tech.
9) When its windy in Hawai’i, bet the under—Southern Miss 24, Nevada 17 never got anywhere near the total (64); neither team completed half its passes. Game was semi-interesting because it was close, but there were hardly any fans at the game and Southern Miss seem distracted having a lame duck coach.
8) Notre Dame has two bowl wins since 1994; they came in El Paso and Honolulu, yet TV types still treat them as an elite program. Why is this?
7) Most points scored in a bowl. Poor Chris Spielman, who was a great linebacker and is a terrific analyst, but he was not happy watching the defenses in this game. Baylor 67, Washington 56. Bears ran ball for 482 yards, with three different kids running for 100+ yards. I'm serious, Spielman sounded like he wanted to go down and hit someone. Hard.
6) Least points scored in a bowl so far—Marshall 20, FIU 10—Rare opportunity to bet against a Sun Belt team favored in a bowl. Marshall’s freshman QB is pretty good, but Thundering Herd almost lost to a dreadful Memphis team- why were they even in a bowl?
5) Whats with coaches wearing sun visors? Missouri beat North Carolina 41-24 at a rainy Independence bowl in Shreveport; Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel wore a parka on a cold, wet night, but still wore the same sun visor he always wears, despite the game being played in the dark. In the rain. Parkas and sun visors don’t go together. Tigers ran ball down Carolina's throat in this game-- 337 yards.
4) Most turnovers ever in an indoor game—Purdue 39, Western Michigan 32 in the Little Ceaser’s Bowl. Has a team ever turned the ball over seven times in one game and won? Western turned it over seven times, Purdue four and teams still scored 71 points, with no defensive TDs. Broncos passed for 439 yards with a sophomore QB, so they should be good for a while.
3) Vindication bowl—NC State coach Tom O’Brien basically fired his starting QB Russell Wilson because he played minor league baseball instead of spring football. Wilson then transferred to Wisconsin and led the Badgers to a 10-2 record, while State struggled early in the season, putting heat on O’Brien, but the Wolfpack rallied late in the season, and junior QB Glennon justified his coach’s faith in him by throwing for 264 yards in State’s 31-24 Belk Bowl win over Louisville.
2) Teams who should’ve met in a better bowl: TCU 31, Louisiana Tech 24 (Poinsettia Bowl)—Curious to see how Horned Frogs do in Big X; think they would’ve dominated the Big East, albeit from very far away. This was a good game.
1) Texas 21, Cal 10— First time ever the Poinsettia Bowl was more fun to watch than the Holiday Bowl. How do the Texas freakin’ Longhorns not have a decent QB on their roster? Manny Diaz’ defense forced five turnovers and held Cal to 195 total yards, or else Mack Brown wouldn’t be as happy as he is today.
I appreciate the effort here, right now, I'm hitting about 50% this bowl season,,,, fell into this thread earlier but got lost in the shuffle , am using yr power ranking list during analysis, will be watching this more closely... want to finish strong
