Spanning the Empire: Your Prairie State Bowls Open Thread

It's Northwestern! It's Texas A&M! It's Illinois! It's UCLA! It's four teams with one stable coaching situation!


It's for the Zooker. It's for the Shermanator. It's for Slick Rick. Lighters in the air, guys. Lighters in the air...

It's the Land of Lincoln sharing the stage on the last day of 2011. It's been disappointing for both Illinois and Northwestern, and you have to wonder if either team can use a win in a bad bowl over a mediocre team with a good name as a jumping off point for 2012. We're the designated drivers today, so our drink of choice will get us through. Be careful out there everybody. We want to see you back next year.

If you're new here, welcome. We've only got a couple rules, so consider this our legal disclaimer. We have a pretty hefty legal department here at OTE, so don't cross us on this: No racism, sexism, homophobia, pornography, personal attacks, politics, religion, or illegal Internet streams of any games.
