As fellow Schnell acolyte Eric Crawford wrote to me just after the final horn sounded in Motown, “And the Pipe adds another scalp to the Totem Pole of Tradition tonight in the Motor City Bowl.” Howard Schnellenberger remains undefeated as a head coach in bowl games after his feisty FAU Fighting Owls held off Central Michigan’s Chippewas at Ford Field.
I assume I’ll hear from Joey The Vig before the sun comes up. In fact I know I will. It’s inevitable. He’s going to want to know if I had any insider info. In his little Bowl Pool exercise, only one of all the entrants predicting the outcome of this game had faith in The Schnell. Guess who that is? So the good news is I was right. The bad news is that Joey The Vig’s “support staff” is going to use all the persuasive tools at their disposal to find out how I knew when nobody else did. I may learn a bit more about waterboarding in the next day or two.
I’m going to bed now with the smile of victory on my face. Let’s hope I’m not sleeping with the fishes by the morning. If I’m still around, you’ll be able to read all the Pigskin Poet’s postgame poesy here. Stay tuned.
