Dueling Posts

So Benny and I were on the phone last night working on today's offerings when we both happened to see the story about the Motor City Bowl extending their Big 10 contract at the same time. Coincidentally, we each wrote up posts within seconds of each other.

Too lazy to edit, we put them both up below.

CRAPPY BIG 10 TEAM TO STILL GET CRAPPY BOWL BID

by Yost

The ultimate dream of every college football player - busting one's ass all year long for a shot at spending Christmas in Detroit - is alive and well. That's because the Motor City Bowl announced a four-year extension with the Big 10 to send its 7th elegible team to the bowl game where they will face off against an equally psyched MAC squad in the annual Motown showdown.

In the event the Big 10 doesn't have seven bowl-elegible teams, everybody on the team that just missed the cut will breathe a collective sigh of relief.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICHIGAN AND SPARTY

by Benny

The Motor City Bowl announced Wednesday that they have extended their agreement with the Big Ten to send a seventh-bowl eligible team to the game at Detroit's Ford Field. A Mid American Conference team will be the opponent.

Should the Wolverines end up going to this game, I doubt Moe's would even stock the commemorative bowl T-shirt. But if Sparty should finally have a winning (or even 6-6) record, and help sell out Ford Field, John L. Smith would probably save his job and East Lansing stores would be full of Motor City Bowl T-shirts.

I couldn't find any Alamo Bowl shirts when MSU went in 2003. When Michigan went last year you couldn't go through the mall without seeing Michigan Alamo Bowl shirts in at least 5 stores. Your post was pretty bad.
