Carla and Crappy Show: The 2016 Bowlapalooza Edition

And so, here we are again. It’s “the most wonderful time of the year” … otherwise known as bowl season, when we send the Directional Michigans to warmer climes and football games to baseball stadiums. And as is tradition around here, that means it’s also time for our fourth-annual Bowlapalooza.

But, because this is Season 5 of this here little show, we decided to pull out all the stops. Go big or go home. This year, we’re joined by four outstanding guests, providing their insights (as well as their bad puns, insults, and sarcastic remarks) as we talk about six of the (approximately) 2,345 bowl games being played over the next two weeks.

Our gracious guests include:

  • Braden Gall (@BradenGall), co-host of “Braden and Fitz” on ESPN’s 102.5 The Game in Nashville and host on Sirius XM’s College Sports Nation.
  • David Fox (@DavidFox615), former college sports writer turned “media guy” at Advent, a design firm that specializes in athletic facilities.
  • Jake Rose (@JakeRose24), contributor at Athlon Sports and play-by-play broadcaster for the Blue Raider Network/Learfield Sports.
  • A.J. Kuftic (@AJKuftic), long-time college football aficionado and official advocate of Pac-12 After Dark.

Games discussed in order of appearance:

  • Popeyes Bahamas Bowl (Dec. 23, 1 p.m. EST, ESPN): Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion
  • Dollar General Bowl (Dec. 23, 8 p.m. EST, ESPN): Ohio vs. Troy
  • Quick Lane Bowl (Dec. 26, 2:30 p.m. EST, ESPN): Maryland vs. Boston College
  • Motel 6 Cactus Bowl (Dec. 27, 10:15 p.m. EST, ESPN): Boise State vs. Baylor
  • Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl (Dec. 30, 3:30 p.m. EST, ESPN): Nebraska vs. Tennessee
  • Outback Bowl (Jan. 2, 1 p.m. EST, ABC): Florida vs. Iowa

Other topics discussed include:

  • Did the committee get the College Football Playoff right?
  • Wait, Old Dominion has a football team?
  • What could possibly be the reward for attending the Dollar General Bowl?
  • Who will destroy a day at work to stay up late to watch the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl?
  • Closely related … how many bad hotel puns can we fit in while discussing the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl?
  • Which bowl game will result in fewer points – the Quick Lane Bowl or the Outback Bowl?
  • What exactly is Jake drinking, anyway? (We kid, we kid. Sorta.)

As always, we had a ton of fun putting this together … we hope you have just as much fun laughing at us while watching it.

Happy holidays … happy bowl season … and, as always, enjoy the games.
