PITTSBURGH vs. MISSISSIPPI
Saturday, Jan 5, 1:00 pm
By the time I get to the end of the bowl season I am so burnt trying to put a spin on these write ups and everything but here goes. Pittsburgh will try and finish over .500 on the year after posting a 6-6 straight up record in the regular season. Ole Miss had one of its best seasons since 2009 with an overall record of 6-6 SU in the brutal SEC. This will be the Panthers final game as a member of the Big East after deciding to jump ship to the ACC starting next season. As traditionally one of the football powers in their former conference, they have to be disappointed with the losing season in their final campaign after posting a winning record in the Big East the previous four years. Offensively, Pitt relied heavily on the play of quarterback Tino Sunseri and its rushing attack left much to be desired.
The Rebels managed to match their win total from the last two seasons combined, which was definitely a step in the right direction. They finished with just one win in their last four games, but two of the losses were to No.7 Georgia and No.8 LSU. Their biggest win of the season was an impressive 41-24 rout over rival Mississippi State on Nov.24 as one-point home underdogs. Ole Miss brings a balanced offensive attack into this matchup. The Rebels’ defense struggled to keep some of the better teams it faced off of the scoreboard.
At least there is no excuse for doing stupid plays in the NFL. Had Texas A&M to win the game by almost 5 points yesterday and of course like an idiot I play Oklahoma plus the points. The 4th time this bowl season I did this and lost each time. How do you spell stupid? S-P-O-O-K-Y
Both teams have looked great at times this season but remain middle-of-the-road teams in their respective conferences. That being said, we have Pittsburgh winning this game by almost a touchdown which is kind of surprising. I really dont like Pittsburgh much but seeing that the numbers have been absolutely solid again this year going to stick with Pittsburgh to surprise many including myself and keep this game close. Not sold on either of these teams and will look for a low scoring game again and cash another total like we did last night.
Spook, before all these bowl games are finished and I forget...............Thanks for all the input and the countless hours it took to put all this together. You are one of a kind, man, and we are lucky to have you. Gl down the home stretch.
Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
