Heading to D2 playoff tomorrow between Slippery Rock (12-1) and the Shepherd Rams (11-0) for a quarter final division playoff game! Meeting up with Slippery Rock Bob Jones and Brian Donnelly, an affiliate of Dan’s Tailgate blog. The Rock under Head Coach George Mihalik in his 28the season, comes off a 41-39 win over Assumption College. The home team Rams got by Indiana University of Pennsylvania, 17-13. IUP fell to PSAC foe SRU during the regular season, 40-39. This looks to be a good, competitive, entertaining game, and we’re looking forward to minimum TV commercial interruptions! Rock QB Dante Nania has passed for 2,868 yards and 30 TDs. WR Shamar Greene has 1,476 of those yards and 13 TDS. RBs Julius Durden and Cornelius Ray have combined for over 1,500 rushing yards and 19 and 8 rushing TDs respectively. The Rams, winners of the Mountain East conference, are led by QB Jeff Ziemba with 3,017 passing yards and 27 TDs. WR Billy Brown has 72 receptions for 1,176 yards and six TDs. Ziemba’s fellow high school mate from St. Mark’s in Delaware, Jabre Lolley has 603 yards and 14 six-pointers. Fellow backfield mate Allen cross has 750 yards and six rushing scores. We really look forward to watch this clash, our first ever at D2 Shepherd…The current CFP Bowl lineup looks to possibly to have Clemson hosting Iowa, and Oklahoma playing Alabama. We think Michigan State will get the win over Iowa this weekend. Our take based on our bowl history if things remain status quo after the championship games this weekend. we were hoping for Alabama vs. Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl we’ll be at. In our bowl history, we watched Alabama crush Notre dame in the CFP championship of 2012, and the previous year, Oklahoma obviously destroyed UConn. Because of proximity, Clemson gets to play in the Orange Bowl if they beat North Carolina this Saturday. Don’t be surprised if UNC surprised though. We saw Clemson on the short end of an Orange Bowl loss to West Virginia in the same venue, 70-33. As for Iowa, we’re shocked after we saw their stale performance last season against Tennessee in the Taxslayer Bowl. Slowest team afoot we’d ever seen. How they improved that much in one year, we didn’t see it coming. Though the fell only 45-28, UT was ups in the third period 45-7 before they emptied the bench and got everyone in the game. We think the Spartans will be in the mix.
