Sunshine, sand, and Ohio Football. That's what's on deck this afternoon for the lucky Bobcats fans that made the trip down to St. Petersburg, Fla.. for the 2013 Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. A few minor issues though. The game is being played inside, under a dome. Oh, and most people don't believe Ohio stands a snowballs chance in south Florida tof beating East Carolina one. Nonetheless, being the devoted Mid-American conference fans that we are, many of us are going to watch every second of this game.
It's scheduled to kick off today at 2 p.m. on ESPN (that's right, no ESPN Dos for the MAC today). The 'Cats are looking to capture their third straight bowl win, and end the careers of several seniors on a high note after yet another terrible slump at the end of the season. The problem? ECU is damn good. Like one of the nation's best offenses good. Oh, and the Pirates can play defense too.
Here at the 'Belt we'll be bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage of the game over in our official StoryStream, but that's not all. We'll also be live chatting the entire game, right here, in our open thread. You should join us, as it's always a fun time. You can get drunk, watch in your boxers and don't even have to take a shower if you don't want to because we don't judge at the Belt. All you need is a Hustle Belt or SB Nation account, which is pretty simple to create, or you can even sign in using your social media accounts, including Twitter or Facebook. So log in and join the discussion.
