If you’ve been boycotting the bowls for some misguided reason, you’ve been missing some good action. Last night’s Emerald Bowl, for example, confirmed that Cal’s Jahvid Best lives up to his last name and that any last minute offense tied in any way, shape or form to Patrick Nix still can’t tie its shoes, metaphorically speaking.
But the real shame would be if you didn’t see the play of the postseason so far, by North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks.
Pretty nifty catch in a great game. The defender’s (#31) reaction is almost as good as the catch – he can’t believe it.
By the way, kudos to Pat White, who became the first quarterback in the college game to start in four bowl wins. That’s unfortunate for us Dawg fans, but good for him.
