12-19-2007, 07:47 PM
I read someone looking for a thread like this, and had one on another BB, so why not repeat it here.

OK we have the bowl games getting ready to start, and most of us like to watch interesting prospects in these games. I wanted to add thread where we can inform everybody of the upcoming games, and the prospects that we should try to watch in the game.

I will start this post with a link to chron.com (http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headline/sports/5383450.html) list of the upcoming games.

This week we have:
Thursday: Poinsettia Bowl, Dec. 20, Utah (8-4) vs. Navy (8-4)
Friday: New Orleans Bowl, Dec. 21, Florida Atlantic (7-5) vs. Memphis (7-5):
Saturday: Papajohns.com Bowl, Dec. 22, Cincinnati (9-3) vs. Southern Miss (7-5): \
Saturday: New Mexico Bowl, Dec. 22, New Mexico (8-4) vs. Nevada (6-6):
Sunday : Hawaii Bowl, Dec. 23, East Carolina (7-5) vs. Boise State (10-2):

12-19-2007, 07:48 PM
In the Thursday game: Jason Boone OG Utah , and Adam Ballard FB Navy
In Fridays game : I have no one, do you have one?
In the Papajohn Bowl : Ben Mauk QB Cincinnati, Doug Jones FB (TE next level)
In the New Mexico Bowl : Marcus Smith WR New Mexico, Devin Clark OT (OG next level). From Nevada Charles Manu OG. Ezra Butler OLB, Adam Bishop TE.

In the Sunday game, Boise St. vs East Carolina, we should be able to watch a few players. At the top of my list for Boise St. is the OLT Ryan Clady a junior who may come out, but his father wants him to finish school, so he may not.
Also Ian Johnson RB, Taylor Tharp QB, Ryan Putnam FB (TE next level), Nick Schlekeway DE, Marty Tadman S .
East Carolina: Chris Johnson RB (runs a 4.3 forty), Josh Coffman OT, Travis Williams CB.

This is not the complete list and I do not have all the prospects we should watch so if you have more to add please do so.

Fla atlantic has a Db that has been in the interception race all year. Both QBs in the New Mexico Bowl are interesting. Nevada Kid is just a youngster. Looks like Montana to me with the buggy whip arm and the bird legs...we'll see. The kid can hum it. They also got a running back with more guts than tallent, Whipincock. Great name anyway. The New Mecixo kid pases the eye ball test. I bet he makes a PS.

Thanks guys.

OG & FB, hmm.. do we need to watch these guys?

Perhaps the DB tomorrow.

We'll worry about Saturday later. I can't remember that far ahead! :brickwall:
