Poinsettia Bowl Live Blog: Half Numero Uno


9:05-Damn Pitt and Duke. Just what you'd expect from two teams which lost to Navy in football. Also, damn technology. I'm recording VHS because I'm still living in 1998 and have no idea how to operate a DVD recorder.
9:10- Frankly, this is why I hate basketball. The last five minutes in a game take a half an hour. Disgusting.
9:14- Overtime? WTF ESPN? There are a million regular season basketball games and only one P-Bowl. Screw the World Wide Leader.
9:20- Navy with a horrible initial series and UTah moving the ball...Oh yea, this basketball game still has 4 mins to go in overtime, which means we'll be lucky to see the Navy game by the start of the second quarter. I'm bagging the live blog until I can actually see it.
9:30- Reggie Campbell is my boy, but he's having a horrible start. Drops a touchdown pass and then fumbles at the three. Looks like we just gave away easy points...
9:35- Damn you Omar Nelson and your compliments on the opponent's play.
9:37- Sounds like Utah is keying in on the toss sweep. Time to go to the fullback trap
9:38- Bout damn time ESPN...What the hell, that wrapup took forever, lets get going will ya!
9:41- Man they are running it down our throughts. Gotta get something going.
9:43- Man a Brian Johnson overthrow just saved us. We brought five guys on a blitz and got stoned, but forced a punt. Still 0-0.
9:45- My ESPN just went dark. No kidding...
9:49- Is there a reason we keep running the sweep?
9:51- Time to see what Coach Jasper is made of. My guess is he's trying to set something up, but he's being very deliberate about it. Also, Bobby Doyle needs to improve his blocking for next year.
9:54- Don't understand the call to go with Bullen from 50. It's fine when your up 21 against Army with no time in the half left, but now?
10:00- I'm seeing some good stuff from our defense, but Utah looks like they're going to score. I'm excited for some of our young players. Vela made a helluva play on a hook and latter try.
10:05- Shitatzu. Utah's offense is operating real well as Mack goes in for a touchdown. 7-0 Utes. It should be 7-7, but we won't hold it against Reggie.
10:06- Alright, we need something to work on offense. The pass looks like it's there, but Utah is doing a good job of slicing through and getting penetration. Look for maybe a reverse or a trap coming up. Let's keep these guys honest Coach Jasper. Defense is holding in there despite giving up the score...
10:13- TOUCHDOWN NAVY! Great job by Ivin Jasper calling the play, although Holtz actually made a good point about rhythm when calling plays from the booth. I think this score will really energize the team though. Navy has had some chances to stop Utah on defense, now we just need to work on getting third down stops. It's important that we get a chance to score before the half as Utah will get the ball first in the second half.
10:22- Ram got away with a facemask on Johnson, but Navy forces a three and out and we're about to get the ball back. Great job by the Navy D! Ross, Ram, Irv, all these guys are flying to the football tonight. When we talk about a more athletic defense this is what we mean, guys that can get lateral in a hurry!
10:30- Fourth and 2. I think going for it is a good idea, we'll have to see what the play is. I'm putting my money on a midline option.
10:39- Good kick by Joey, but we left them too much time. Utah is going to do some trickeration here ya gotta think.

navy got one first down, then punted.

utah has the ball.

lou holtz sounds like he has a box of marbles in his mouth.

utah is on the navy side of the field, the 45 i think...

rockchalktalk said...

interception navy.

sorry, navy didnt punt, they fumbled. must have been on third down.

navy has the ball at the 50, off the interception by #51... parpasill or something.

I agree with Holtz's comments about the disruption of rhythm that occurs now that plays are being called in the booth as opposed to on the field

In The Bleachers said...

Nice drive by Navy. Now they need a 3 and out!

non illegitimus carborundum said...

They need to keep up the fullback dives. They are making penetration.

non illegitimus carborundum said...

Navy definitely to needs to get in better rhythm on offense....

Adam said...

I agree. we're jumping too much up front...

mikey said...

Amazing if we can go into half-time with a lead....

In The Bleachers said...

If you would've told me before the games that these teams would have a combined 17 points at half, I would've said you are crazy!

M&M said...

That's what I say....establish the fullback!!!

CAT said...
