And the Bowl Is...?

And the Bowl Is...?
Georgia Southern

Georgia Southern is going to their first bowl ever. They will be participating in the GoDaddy Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama on December 23rd. The game is at 8:00 P.M. on ESPN. Their opponent will be Bowling Green State University from Bowling Green, Ohio. The Falcons are from the Mid-American Conference.

The Falcons have an impressive resume. They are 10-3 and coming off a victory Northern Illinois where they won the Mid-American Conference title. They have wins over power 5 teams Maryland and Purdue. They also barely lost to a talented Memphis Tigers team who beat Ole Miss earlier this year. The Falcons also boast a talented offense. They score 43.4 points per game on average. They have a trio of highly talented players on offense that makes them a prominent offense. Their Quarterback, Matt Johnson, has thrown for 47 touchdowns this year and has passed for 4,700 yards. Their best Wide Receiver, Roger Lewis, has 15 touchdowns receiving and 1,476 yards receiving. Their Running Back, Travis Greene, has 14 rushing touchdowns on the season and has run 1,219 yards this season. This trio will be tough for Georgia Southern to handle.

Georgia Southern will have to bring their A game if they want to take down the Falcons. They will have to play better than their last game where they lost 34-7 to their rivals from Atlanta, Georgia State. The Eagles will have about two and a half weeks to prepare so they should be read to play. The Eagles defense has played relatively well this season but offense has come up short in some games. The offense will have to show up if they are going to be able to compete with Bowling Green’s prolific offense.

The game should be filled with a ton of scoring. Both teams will want to finish their seasons on a high note. Be sure to tune in on December 23rd at 8:00 P.M. on ESPN to watch the game.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
