A POETRY COLLECTION

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

The Liberty Bowl, by Spencer Hall

Coach Dana woke up a-quakin'
When the Liberty Bowl Eers did be takin'
"My memory's not clear
but after seventy beers
Did I shoot that man in Memphis or Macon?"

The Russell Athletic Bowl, by Spencer Hall

Dabo and Bob have a thirst
In football manners they're versed
"In football you see
The rule always should be
Be polite, and lose the game first."

The Texas Bowl, by Ryan Nanni

The buttons
On the trousers and
The starched dress shirts
Shackles for flesh

Holding back the
Carved cliffs of
His muscle and
The gentle pillowy tide of
The other's beer gut

Texas Bowl? We want to win
At something else
Snapping chains
Jailbreaks

This is Bret Bielema's
Pants coup
