Bo-files in History: Year 5

Look Bo Pelini lifted Nebraska out of the Bill Callahan era (while coaching up his players in his first couple seasons in Lincoln) so Husker Nation must be greatful for that and thank him. The title is Bo-files in history (profiles in history is the spoof for those needing it spelled out) as I’ve been putting off looking at the Mark “Bo” Pelini years as head Husker. This era in Cornhusker football started in 2008 even though technically it started with the 2003 Alamo Bowl which I’ll count in what’s about to be totaled up.

4Quarters Weekly College Pick’em: Jerry and Mike Go Bowling! (Dec. 24 Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl)

Christmas Eve and the traditional Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl takes place when MWC co-champion Fresno State faces SMU of CUSA. Recapping what on Saturday, Jerry won our New Orleans Bowl head-to-head and takes a one game lead. It’ll remain that way for him regardless through Christmas since we both like the Bulldogs.

Again, instead of giving you each bowl game all at once we’ll give you are picks in a daily dose of them.

Monday – December 24, 2012
Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl (Honolulu, Hawaii): Fresno State Bulldogs (9-3, 7-1 MWC) v. SMU Mustangs (6-6, 5-3 CUSA), 7 pm/ESPN

M – So far the Mountain West co-tri champions are 1-1 this bowl season (San Diego State lost/Boise State won) but this might be the best easiest of the three. David Carr’s younger brother has had a solid season and I expect him to light up the Ponies on Christmas Eve. The Pick: Fresno State 56 SMU 24
J – Outside of a late season win vs. Tulsa (credit where it’s due), the Mustangs record has been padded against Conference USA doormats. This might be the blowout of bowl season. The Pick: Fresno State 52 SMU 17

Rankings are from BcS Standings

Current Bowl Record: Mike (3-3), Jerry (4-2)
Regular Season Total: Jerry (91-49), Mike (91-49)

Four Quarters Top 25 Poll: Week 10

The last poll of the regular season, fear not we’ll have a final one after the bowl season for those needing the fix. Not a whole lot of changes at the top but we did have teams drop in the poll.
