Sparty, There Is A Reason You Didn’t Get The Outback Bowl!

Sparty, there are multiple reasons you didn’t get picked to play in The Outback Bowl.  The biggest is right here, face it, you just don’t support your team and you ain’t that sexy.

The Outback Bowl took the more attractive option, they took a TV ratings magnet and a huge ticket sale over a regional program that many outside of the Midwest don’t pay attention too at all, even when you are making the playoff.

This is why we can’t have nice things and why Florida fans shouldn’t have blogs.

Check out this “Michigan v. Florida preview” piece written by a Florida fan boi.  It’s inaccurate and embarrassing that he published this piece and hasn’t edited the mistakes.  The guy is entitled to write whatever he would like to write, but to have so many gross inaccuracies is bad, really bad.

Let’s start with the dumbest part of the article first and we’ll get to the less dumb stuff later.  Here’s a great one about the linebackers.

On the other hand, Michigan’s oldest linebacker this year will be sophomore Devin Bush. That is horrifying news for a defense that traditionally makes its living stopping the run...
