The bowl season starts in earnest tonight with a cracking little showdown between the boys in the NAVY and UTAH in the Poinsettia bowl. Deciding who to root for was easy, Navy don't run the 'Option offense', they run the TRIPLE option offense. What's not to love about that?!
Plus they are +8 here in Ireland, while I believe the spread is only +7.5 in the States? You honestly would not believe the amount of times that stupid little +.05 comes into play, honestly, you wouldn't. Unless your name is Andy, Lorcan or Vegas, and then you know exactly what I am on about.
Anyway let's kick the Bowl season off with a selection in tonight's game. With the best running attack in the nation and a hefty 8 point handicap, only a fool or someone called Jason would pick against Navy! I am no fool, and I am definitely not called Jason. So my selection was inevitable.
