Games are won and lost in the fourth quarter, men. This is typically something said by coaches desperate to steal a win with inferior teams, and not by actual dominant football teams capable of burning down an opponent by halftime and putting in the backups for seasoning in the fourth.
The EDSBS commentariat clearly belongs in the latter group, aka the Art Briles/Steve Spurrier/Chip Kelly school of massive margins and endless scoreboard surplus. Having run up the score early in the EDSBS Charity Bowl, you kept the pedal to the floor and brought the total to $25,768 as of writing.
The key culprit in that is Michigan, the fanbase who treated even a meager challenge to their title like an existential threat. 290 very generous people donated to this year's Charity Bowl so far. ONE HUNDRED AND ONE OF THEM CLAIMED MICHIGAN AS THEIR SCHOOL. Of that $25K plus, almost $7K comes from Michigan.
We love you, and that's why we say thank you in the most painful way possible: highlights from the 2008 Capital One Bowl.
The fundraiser concludes tomorrow on the college football sabbath of Saturday. If you have given, thank you from the bottom of our filthy Floridian greasetrap of a heart. If you have not given, you may do so right here. Final results on Monday, along with the inevitable Michigan reskin of the site.
