You likely can't name anybody on the Drake Bulldogs' two-deep, but they're about to have a football experience we I-A fancypants programs won't be able to match without divine intervention*: The Kilimanjaro Bowl is upon us, and though the game won't be played on the slopes of Africa's most well-known big ol' hill, the offseason scrimmage between Drake and Mexico's CONADEIP all-star team will have use of the pretty metally-monikered Sheik Amri Abeid Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is Saturday, and the game will be available via satellite stream (more info on that here).
This all set us to pondering: College basketball gets games on aircraft carriers, and Notre Dame vs. Navy will play in Ireland in 2012. What's our next frontier (highly imaginary until the NCAA decides to loosen its stranglehold on fun, just a titch)?
We'd like to steal a dance from the hoopyballers and stage Tennessee-Alabama atop the Red October (which would have to exist; we are aware of the hurdles here), and here's the kicker: Actually play it on the Third Saturday In October for once in our natural lives.
Over to you, campers: Stage your own gimmick game, and make it memorable. (And please, we entreat you: No jokes about fitting two endzones in Tommu Tuberville's cavernous vagina. It's not a fair comparison, as 1) vaginas perform many useful functions, and 2) people like them.)
*Come on. Like Crazy Old Testament God wouldn't zap up [NAME REDACTED] and the entire fighting Illini roster and turn them loose on some forbidding steppe, just to see what happened. And just like that, Fearless Leader has something to pray for.
