I went to our first Liberty Bowl game back in 1972 and it was a lot of fun - good partying town. Drove down with 2 friends and after the close loss we started to drive back but the thought of turning left and going further South to warmer weather to too much temptation for 3 young Iowa boys. I seem to remember spending Christmas in Miami that year but maybe it was just New Years. Has the game always been on December 31?
I was at that Liberty Bowl game as well. Went on a charter. Setting aside the loss, I think I had a pretty good time but
there are were a few moments that I would have to rely on someone else's opinion.
Children will grow up to be,
not what they are told but what they see.
I want to beat the livin' crap out of these guys. I hope Richardson plays like he did vs. Kansas. Bummed we're playing Tulsa AGAIN but happy for a nice bowl. Liberty Bowl sounds way cooler than the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl or Little Casaers Bowl... Plus it's cool we've gone there before in the 70's.
Watson and Givens proved how much the D misses them during WVU.... Wish we had Knott coming back but I think AK and JG are starting to get better together.
It's not Memphis or Liberty that's the problem. It's Tulsa. We played them to start the season, now we're playing them to end the season, and then we play them to start next season. Stupid matchup for a bowl. Marketing people are asleep at the wheel on this one.
It's not that it's bad marketing, it's that it's the only bowl we got picked for.. Because OU got knocked out of a bcs selection it bumped everyone down a notch and since we were last on the list we got bumped out of any big 12 bowl and this was about the best runner up you could find..
The Liberty Bowl was a great landing spot for us, given how things played out. It really is too bad we just happened to have Tulsa on our schedule sandwiched on either side of this bowl game. If UTEP or Tulane was the CUSA team we thumped in the non conference this year and was returning to the schedule next year, no one would mind playing Tulsa in Memphis at all.
