Happy new year! May your favorite sporting crews win championships and your rivals be smote by God.

Trying to sort out what it means when an evangelical college football team wins the Cure Bowl.

And who arranged for two orange teams to meet in the Cheez-It Bowl.

Massive brawl breaks out at end of Armed Forces Bowl between Mississippi State and Tulsa

The Cheezit Bowl made for a fun celebration.

Not going to link to the Jomboy breakdown of the brawl at the end of that other bowl game because it just made me sad to see it happen and no amount of Jomboy jocularity could make it otherwise. After watching it, I had to cleanse my soul by watching a nice Canadian man go stealth camping next to a highway. And Grandpa Kitchen feed a bunch of orphans. And then finally watch Chef John of Food Wishes kindly make Detroit style pizza.

Being surprised that a postgame brawl took place that involved a Mike Leach team is like being surprised that a trucker farted in the cab of his K-Whopper after eating at a Flying J truckstop.

Thanks. And to what do I owe the pleasure?
