Washington Faces Nebraska in the Blowout Bowl...I Mean Holiday Bowl 

Why is Nebraska playing Washington in the Holiday Bowl.

I have to look back pretty far to find more of an odd match up for a bowl game than is taking place tonight down in San Diego where #18 Nebraska is facing the 6-6 Washington Huskies.

Why is this odd?

First off -- The two teams already played once this year with the Huskers rocking Washington 55-22 up in Seattle.

Secondly -- Nebraska played in the Big XII conference championship and just barely lost, yet they're in the Bridgeport Education Holiday Bowl. If a team wins 10 games, but ends up in a bowl sponsored by a company you've never heard of, that's a problem. Nebraska fans have a right to be pissed about this pairing.

Thirdly -- This is going to almost certainly be a blowout and bowls aren't supposed to be blowouts. Well, except for the Chico's Bail Bonds Blowout Bowl, but that's not a real bowl...yet.

UPDATE: I'm currently enjoying a big plate of crow, with my foot in my mouth as I wipe the egg off my face. Yes, UW won and yes,  I'm idiot. Good game Huskies -- next time I'll have your back.

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
