Would you like the opportunity to go to San Francisco to watch the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between Nevada and Boston College on January 9th? What would you say if the tickets were free? Further, what would you say if, by entering our little contest, you’re also helping raise awareness for fighting hunger? Good football on the west coast and the chance to help those less fortunate? Sounds like a win-win, and if you’d like to be apart of the contest, all you have to do is hop on Twitter, follow @IntentionalFoul, and re-tweet the following:

While this post’s title might be a little long in the tooth, it’s perfectly fitting; and it should be noted this post is not being written by a fan of Kansas State. Instead, this writer is a fan of common sense and fair play, and the penalty endured by Kansas State after wide receiver Adrian Hilburn saluted the crowd after he scored what may have been a game-tying score, provided the two-point conversion was taken from it’s normal position on the field. Instead, the officials — a Big Ten crew no less — decided Hilburn’s salute, an act Webster’s defines as “to address with expressions of kind wishes, courtesy, or honor,” was in the same vein as spiking the ball in the defense’s face, or disrespecting your opponent by taking your helmet off in a “look at me, I’m the man” display of bravado.
Are you f**king kidding me? That’s the best they can do?
The college football Bowl season kicks off tonight when Utah and Navy do battle in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. Kick-off is scheduled for a little after 8pm EST and ESPN will be taking care of the broadcast duties. Announcers for your game tonight are Rece Davis, Mark May, and Lou Holth.
Hopefully, Ole Lou won’t electrocute himself on his microphone.
Speaking of pain, can the sponsor name for tonight’s game be any longer please? A five-word descriptor is incredibly fun to type AND say. Although, it kinda puts the whole, “why we don’t have a playoff” discussion in perspective, doesn’t it?
The players to watch tonight are Utah’s Darrell Mack, who rushed for over 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns and the Navy quarterback with the incredible name, Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada. Kaheaku-Enhada leads the team with 782 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s also thrown for six more.
