One of the best things about bowl season is the sheer amount of build-up each game is afforded. For San Jose State, that means today's story in the Merc. Basically, it's a look back on the last bowl team, and what a team it was.

I was far too young to appreciate it, but that team was pretty much the greatest to ever dawn the blue and gold. A 49-7 win over Central Michigan capped a 9-2-1 season.

What seemed, to those involved, thought it was the season that would have a lasting effect on SJSU's perception, instead was just the peak of a small mountain.

But I digress, read the story if you're that interested.

In other news, Dennis Erickson left Idaho after one losing season. Truly a sad commentary on a gutless coach with little ability to stand by convictions. Oh, sorry, still love watching that guy do the wrong thing whenever the opportunity presents itself. Love it, love it, love it. What makes it even better is that the Idaho AD beat Arizona State to the punch, announcing Erickson's departure perhaps days before ASU was ready to announce Erickson's arrival. It would be so awesome to see this deal fall apart.
