B1G Championship Game, Outback Bowl and a brand new year!

Well I've been remiss in udating my blog for the past 6 weeks. It's been due to extremely busy schedules and life however. I have a few great pics from the B1G champ game and what a game it was even though the ending was not how we had envisioned. What a team this 2011 Spartan Football team has been! First ever Legends division champions and a moment away from being a repeat B1G championship team. They played their hearts out and they are champions in my mind. End of December had us traveling to the Outback bowl in Tampa for one of the most exciting games I've ever witnessed. We finally seal a bowl win in the books against an excellent championship SEC team in Georgia.

front row seats at Lucas Oil stadium in Indy for the champ game! What a great venue for this game!

Off to the Outback bowl and a fabulous luncheon for Coaches wives and daughters at Roy's with luau and great Polynesian dancers and live music

Team bowling night at Splitsville was a blast. A couple of our favorite GA's, Freddie, Billy and Nick

some of the players, specifically O line guys, decided to play chicken in the ocean although I can't imagine why!

And then my favorite "slappy" Chris D Rucker

Jen with Blake

Look at that. Pickleman can actually smile!

OK so Jerel isn't a senior but I had a feeling it would be the last we would see him. She got pics with all of the seniors but too many to post here

Finally it's gameday. With my best Spartan football bud Liz

It was another awesome and exciting year of Spartan football. I'm happy that we can finally have a breather and have some great vacations planned, both couple and family trips. 

Happy New Year!!
