Default Outback Bowl Thoughts

Some random thoughts on the Outback Bowl yesterday....

1. This was my fourth bowl game visit (I'm 2-2), and the experience was one of the best. No one could help the weather, but everything was well planned with lots of stuff for the fans. Traffic was bad on the road to the stadium, but that's gonna be at every bowl game. Outback does a really good job with this game.

2. I was impressed with the stadium. It was not the kind of weather you think of when you think of Florida, but it was still fine. Stadium was well equipped and stadium employees were helpful and nice. Well laid out, as expected for an NFL stadium. Crowd was pretty good, but I think it would have been better if it wasn't overcast and chilly the whole game.

3. The game itself: I will admit - once it got to 19-3, I penciled this game in as a loss. Offense was so poor that we couldn't buy a first down. Michigan just seemed to be having our way with us and we couldn't do anythig to stop it. However, the fact that this team wasn't phased by that and came back to win 26-19 was amazing.

4. Not only is it kind of a microcosm of the season, but proof that Muschamp is our guy and the program is headed in the right direction. Fight like hell and play all four quarters is what he has been preaching, and that's what this team did. It's not pretty sometimes, but wins are wins. Not only does this cap off an amazing season (one of the best in school history), but this gives the program so much positive momentum going into the offseason. 9 losses to 9 wins is incredible. Props to Muschamp for all that he has done.

5. The OC situation is still something that needs to be sorted out, but other than that (which will be fixed), I am excited for the future of this program. Spurs Up!

Not sure what it is about us going to Tampa, but when I went to the Outback (2000 I think), it wasn't chilly, it was downright cold that game.

The wind made it worse than it really was. This was my first time going to the Outback so I can't speak for the other three trips.

The Blooming Onion mascot should make random unannounced appearances at our home games.

Why random appearances?

We should get him for every game next season.

I went to the Iowa game years ago down there, same year Garcia decided to party all night before the game. Had a great time, loved the Tampa area, stadium was pretty cool, and Iowa fans were very classy. We have a pretty darned good record in Outback Bowls, especially against Big 10 teams.

I was also at the 2010 Peach Bowl, and I think he did the same thing in Atlanta too.

We actually have the most Outback Bowl wins of any team with a 4-1 record.

The defense played lights out the entire game. The offense looked like garbage through 2 1/2 quarters. Highlighted the need for Muschamp to bring in a proven OC.

Unfortunately, the only Outback Bowl I ever attended was in 2009(SC's only loss in Tampa), but other than the game itself, it was a wonderful experience. It was a very well organized event that spanned the entire week leading up to kickoff. I was there with the Mighty Sound of the Southeast, and in spite of multiple, daily obligations for the band all week, it remains the best New Year's I've ever had.
Seeing how well they treated the band, I have to imagine it was a blast for the players. Though I doubt the band had to be as well behaved. Lol. I didn't fully appreciate the trip until the following year, and the disaster in Birmingham. There could have been no worse way to usher in 2010

My biggest thought was how UM's defense went from being cocky little punks to acting like whipped puppy dogs by the end of the game.
