Q A quick Gildan New Mexico Bowl Quiz:
1. What city does the Gildan New Mexico Bowl take place in?
2. What the @#$% is Gildan?
3. Who cares?
Like most people east of El Paso and west of Lake Havasu, I did not watch this game live. I saw a blurb about a wild finish so I watched the replay of the last 3+ minutes.
At the 3:20 mark, they name the Nevada QB as Player of the Game.
At 3:15, you see the Nevada coach smiling and celebrating on the sideline.
At 1:49, the Wolf Pack kicks a field goal to go up 48-35.
Watching AZ shred the Nevada defense, it made me wonder where the best defensive back on Nevada would figure on Alabama. He'd probably be a back-up special teams player or maybe a practice dummy holder.
I watched a little of the Georgia High School finals yesterday and they are not too much behind these two pathetic teams. Terrible coaching and terrible execution of fundamentals were on display by both Nevada & Arizona. Nevada blew their last timeout trying to freeze the kicker on the go-ahead extra point with 0:19 left. Really? You don't think you might need that timeout after a couple of passes and a FG attempt to win the game?
1. Somewhere between the Grand Canyon and the Cadillac Ranch
2. I think they make carburetors or parakeet cages. Something like that. ESPN doesn't know. They can't even spell it right.
3. It looks like about 1,500-2,000.
