Brian Mason: 
All you missed was an outstanding return by Miami on the opening kickoff, which was called back to the 16 for an illegal block before Craig Cooper ran it in for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:13 Brian Mason
7:13

So mark it 7-0 in favor of the Hurricanes

Clay runs again and he's brought down short of the first down
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:14 Brian Mason

Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:17 Brian Mason
7:18
Brian Mason: 
There were a lot of cliches thrown around heading into the game about things coming down to the Badgers' power against the Hurricanes' speed ... at least so far that has been the case
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:18 Brian Mason
7:19
Brian Mason: 
Miami with the big-time kickoff return and then a quick sprint around the outside ... it's been the short running game of Clay for UW
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:19 Brian Mason
7:19
Brian Mason: 
Clay gets it again and moves to the UW 47 for a pickup of 3 ... 2nd and 7
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:19 Brian Mason
7:19
Brian Mason: 
Progress coming in small chunks for UW so far
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:19 Brian Mason
7:20
Brian Mason: 
And no progress at all that time as Clay is gang-tackled in the backfield before he can even get going
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:20 Brian Mason
7:20

It's a loss of 3 back to the 43 ... 3rd and 10

Nice job by Nortman of keeping it out of the Hurricanes' hands after seeing how they handled their first return of the night

It's been warm by Madison standards but cold for Floridians' taste over the past three days. Official temp at kickoff tonight is 50 degrees, but it will get colder before we're done ... dipped to 38 degrees last night in Orlando

Do you know why Appleton is playing this game despite being the least productive WR this season? An Impact Player as dubbed by the ESPN broadcast as well...
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:43 Andy
7:43
Brian Mason: 
He certainly wasn't the least productive for any reason other than the fact that he didn't see a whole lot of playing time ... it's pretty normal to see younger players get some increased playing time in bowl games based on their performance in practice
Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:43 Brian Mason

Tuesday December 29, 2009 7:46 Brian Mason

Shouldn't be too surprising ... both coaches, Shannon and Bielema, have said repeatedly this week that they see a lot of their own team in the other side

I think this sums up the answer to Bob's question. "While each conference selects individual officials for bowls, the NCAA doles out the assignments. Each conference represented in a bowl must have at least one officiating crew working in the postseason. The number of crews each conference gets is somewhat proportional to how many teams the league sent to the bowls in the previous season. "
