    Wow, the Servpro First Responder Bowl between Boston College and Boise St. has been outright cancelled due to weather. You'd think there would be some way to reschedule it, but it officially goes as a no-contest.


    Really sucks for the seniors.
    Beat, um, somebody!

    Apparently they didn't want to have to deal with emergency first-responders having to respond to the First Responder Bowl.....

    Geez thats crazy Imagine the fans that traveled to Dallas for the game only to have it cancelled mid-way through the first.

    I imagine the sponsors aren't loving it either.

    Good question - you would think at some other point, but I haven't heard either way




    EDIT: Read an article where multiple quotes were that this was first time because of weather that they were aware of. Hawaii had a game cancelled because of the attack on Pearl Harbor, which makes plenty of sense

    Found an article from an Idaho newspaper that blasts the bowl officials for not having a contingency plan in place:

    https://www.idahostatesman.com/sport...223589200.html

    It was known for several days, at least, that thunderstorms were expected to strike the Dallas area on Wednesday afternoon and potentially disrupt the First Responder Bowl — yet there was no contingency plan to make sure the game was played.

    In a massive, football-crazed metro area with many venues that could handle the 8,000-10,000 people who showed up for Wednesday’s game — including at least a couple with roofs — playing anywhere but Cotton Bowl Stadium wasn’t considered. Changing the game time, or perhaps even the date, wasn’t considered until it was too late.

    Instead, organizers allowed the Broncos and Eagles to begin a game that had no chance of finishing.

    Beat, um, somebody!

    Well, in a sense this is probably a LOT more publicity than if the game had just gone on like the rest of all the bowls.




    And I didn't even think of this, but saw it pointed out that Servpro's slogan is "Like it never even happened"

    Now if that's not a perfect publicity tie-in, I don't know what is

    Cal and TCU demonstrating how truly awful 2 teams can be with 228 total yards and 6 turnovers at half.

    3 INT's for each team and McIlwain still isn't good enough to even see the field yet....
