Toledo's bowl game was on last night while I was out to dinner. While a Toledo native and resident, I graduated from rival Bowling Green and I detest the Univ. of Toledo with an all-consuming passion. Yet I cared so little about their game that I didn't even look up to see that they got thrashed. (Way to go, Rockets.)
When I was in college only one MAC team got to play in a bowl. This made it a big deal to play in one instead of just another game at the end of an average season. I remember going out and helping tear down goal posts at Perry Stadium because the team won its bowl game, four time zones away.
