Actual comment posted on the story The Diamondback ran about the Terps going to the Bowl game:

"As a Nevada fan, I'm excited to see us play a tough ACC team. I saw you guys beat Cal earlier this year, and was impressed with your offense. I know, Boise isn't Florida, Southern California or Hawaii, but you can have fun there. My one recommendation is to avoid their strip clubs. A friend of my went to a Nevada-BSU game a few years ago, and being away from home, wanted to see the night life. After paying $20 to get in, we soon realized that the girls aren't allowed to take their tops off? What? They don't strip at your strip club??? Otherwise, there are some fun bars in Boise, some great skiing nearby, and the people are friendly. Good luck Terps."

Yay boys. Can't wait. By the way, Roady's is referring to Idaho-based Roady's Truck Stops, the nation's largest chain of truck stops, according to their press release.

Roberto also pointed out that the match up was a jip because we're playing Nevada, the state right South of Idaho vs. if we were to trek out there, it would look like this:



I know the map is small, but it doesn't matter. It's all so sad.

Apparently we were offered the new bowl at RFK Stadium but Debbie Yow turned it down because finals were going on.....

When you blow big games, these are the crappy bowl games you get offered...makes me laugh that they're offering two free tickets to try to persuade people to go out there
