Bowl Game Fever Heating Up or Breaking?

Rose Bowl
Average Price Per Ticket $330.00 | Get In’s $129.00
Rose Bowl Thursday Jan 1st 2:00pm
The 2015 Rose Bowl takes its place for the first time as the one of the two College Football Semifinal games as the Granddaddy of the them all will host the Number 2 and 3 seeds the Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles. The current Rose Bowl ticket average price on the secondary market is $330.00 with the get in the door price of $129.00 per ticket which is a 40% decline in get in the door prices from the 2014 Rose Bowl game between the Michigan State Spartans and Stanford Cardinal’s.

Although the 2015 Rose Bowl will feature controversial Florida State quarterback Jamies Winston and the Heisman Trophy Winner Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and is the first College Bowl game that is for the new College Football Playoff system prices or still down compared to four of the last five Rose Bowl Games. One of the most significant reasons for the lower price on Rose Bowl tickets this year is Florida State Seminoles fans don’t travel as well do to the warm climate to warm climate comparison. While having strong followings at home games as well as big games close to home certain teams fans don’t tend to travel well. The average temperature in Florida is 82 degrees while in Los Angeles the average temperature is 75 degrees. A team that plays its games in cold weather such as the Michigan State Spartans whose average temperature might be 30F would want to go for a vacation into warm sunny Pasadena.

There is a look at the Last Five Rose Bowl Ticket Price Averages.
Rose Bowl Ticket Prices

Sugar Bowl
Alabama Crimson Tide vs Ohio State Buckeyes
Average Price Per Ticket $450.00 | Get In’s $220.00
Mercedes-Benz Superdome Thursday Jan 1st 7:30pm
The 2015 Sugar Bowl is one of the semi-final games in the new College Football Playoff system and with the Crimson Tide and Buckeyes who both have strong traveling fan bases the Sugar Bowl Ticket prices have climbed to an average of $450 on the secondary market with get in the door prices starting at $220 per ticket a 58% higher price then to get into the 2015 Rose Bowl.

Ohio State Buckeyes fans are a strong traveling diehard fan base which has helped raise Sugar Bowl tickets on the secondary market by over $120 per ticket since they were announced as one of the two teams in the semi-final game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans LA.

Fiesta Bowl
Arizona Wildcats vs Boise State Broncos
Average Price $140.00 | Get In’s $63.00
University of Phoenix Stadium Wed Dec 31st 2:00pm.
Fiesta Bowl ticket prices are the cheapest for one of the Bowl Games and will most likely dip down even more as it gets closer to the 31st. The 2014 Fiesta Bowl ticket prices are almost 70% lower than the 2013 game between Baylor and UCF. If you live near the University of Phoenix Stadium and are a Wildcats fan even waiting until the day of the game to buy tickets might be your best bet to get in to the Bowl game under $50.00 per ticket.

Average Price $90.00 | Get In’s $5.00
Sun Life Stadium Wednesday Dec 31st 8:00pm

How much will the 49ers miss Aldon Smith?

49ers Aldon Smith

SMITH

Entering the season with a revamped secondary and questions around the return of All-World linebacker NaVorro Bowman, the San Francisco 49ers may play the 2014 without another key cog in their elite defense, elite pass rusher Aldon Smith. In the latest in the line of off-the-field issues, Smith was arrested at LAX this past week in a bizarre case that involved Smith declaring that he had a bomb with him. In the past couple of seasons Smith was charged with multiple DUI’s and completed rehabilitation for issues with alcohol. Through all of his off-the-field issues the 49ers have supported Smith, but according to the San Jose Mercury News that may be coming to an end. According to Tim Kawakami its likely Smith sits out the entire 2014 season. Beyond potential team disciplinary issues it’s possible that the NFL suspends Smith for an extended period of time, if charges are pressed against him.

Smith’s legal issues are the latest in a handful of off-the-field incidents the 49ers are dealing with this season. Chris Culliver, an important part of the 49ers revamped secondary, will soon be charged for a recent hit and run incident. The 49ers are likely to hold onto Culliver, who will play a major role for the team due to the loss of multiple cornerbacks in free agency. This past week quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s name came up in relation to a “suspicious incident” that Miami police are still investigating. It’s unknown whether or not Kaepernick will be charged with anything, but any potential drama around Kaepernick will be yet another distraction for the franchise. It’s been an eventful offseason, beginning with rumors that the team actually looked to trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Cleveland Browns. The Harbaugh story was followed by a tough free agency period where more of the 49ers impressive defensive depth was picked apart by NFL free agency.

Aldon Smith

ALDON SMITH

The potential loss of Smith may be a major blow to the 49ers pass rush. Smith forms a tremendous combination with defensive end Justin Smith. Couple the loss of Aldon Smith with the devastating knee injury that NaVorro Bowman is returning from and the 49ers linebacker corps is clearly diminished. Bowman is a unique player, an every down player, who will likely be replaced by a handful of players as well as changes in scheme. With the 49ers secondary rebuilding, including new safety Antoine Bethea, a solid pass rush will be important. Corey Lemonair, who showed flashes of brilliance in his rookie season, is the logical replacement for Smith. San Francisco also has a massive number of draft picks in the upcoming NFL draft, with ample opportunity to pick up potential pass rush talent.

Whether or not they can find a player who can average a sack a game, like Smith, is another story. In an offseason where they were forced to replace exiting talent at several positions, the distraction of another Smith incident is exactly what the 49ers didn’t need. With Seattle coming off of a Super Bowl title the 49ers will need their typical elite defense. If they are unable to make up for their losses on the defensive side of the football they could be looking at another wild card run next season. By Chris Cabrera

Broncos Look Super Bowl Bound

Broncos

Broncos

The Denver Broncos won their 11th game of the season Sunday afternoon, initially falling behind the Tennessee Titans before roaring back for a 51-28 victory. The story was once again Peyton Manning who threw for nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns in the victory, leading a balanced attack. The win sets up a division game with the San Diego Chargers next week in Denver. Beyond the stellar play of Manning the highlight for the Broncos was Matt Prater’s 64-yard field goal, breaking the NFL record held by Tom Dempsey and former Broncos kicker Jason Elam.

Where the game was won: The Broncos were sloppy early, allowing the Titans to build a 21-7 lead. As in so many games this season the Broncos offense dominated the second through fourth quarters, scoring over fifty points for the fourth time this season. Manning was as efficient as ever, throwing touchdowns to four different Broncos receivers. Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Julian Thomas all caught touchdown passes for the Broncos. Decker, coming off a career game last week, caught 8 passes for 117 yards. The former Minnesota Gophers star has caught sixteen passes for nearly 300 yards and five touchdowns the past two weeks. While Manning and his receiving crew were dominating through the air the combination of Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball was effective on the ground. The duo combined for 155 yards rushing on 29 carries and a touchdown each. With 551 yards the Broncos outgained the Titans by nearly 300 yards. The Broncos offensive line was perfect once again, not giving up a sack while their future Hall of Fame quarterback lit up the Titans through the air.

Up next for Denver: Denver hosts their division rivals the San Diego Chargers next weekend at Invesco Field. The Broncos defeated the Chargers 28-20 in a November matchup in San Diego. The Chargers are still alive in the playoff race after thrashing the New York Giants 37-14 in San Diego on Sunday. At 6-7 the Chargers likely need to upset Denver to have any chance at earning a wild card in the AFC. San Diego has an efficient, ball-control offense, but struggles defensively. Look for the Chargers to put points on the board behind Philip Rivers and the offense but the Chargers defense is unlikely to have much success stopping the Broncos. The win will put the Broncos one game closer to a division title and will keep them on top in the race for home field advantage in the AFC.

Prediction: Manning throws for over 300-yards once again as Denver manages a convincing victory over the Chargers. The Broncos earn their 12th victory of the season with a 41-31 victory over the Chargers. Broncos Vs Chargers Tickets are still available for the Dec 12th game at Invesco Field.

Can Dez Bryant & Tony Romo help the Cowboys win the NFC East?

Tony Romo Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are coming in to a season in which the hopes are high like every other season. The team will look to veteran quarterback Tony Romo to lead the Cowboys to the post season for the first time since 2009. While the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will look to head coach Jason Garrett to turn this team around if not it may be time for the team to move in another direction.

Romo is coming off a season in which he broke his ribs and punctured his lungs but still came back in to lead the Cowboys to a victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Romo finished the season with 4184 yards passing and 31 touchdowns while completing over 66 percent of his passes.

The team struggled early finding a running game till the break out performance in week 7 against the St. Louis Rams from rookie running back DeMarco Murray. Murray led the team to a 34-7 victory while rushing for 253 yards and a touchdown. Murray comes in 2012 as the starter while the Cowboys will look for him to carry the load.

The Cowboys will also look for the young star receiver Dez Bryant to take another step in the right direction on the field. Now that the team has placed 24 hour security with him to make sure he doesn’t do anything stupid off the field to keep him from producing on the field. Dez had 63 catches for 928 yards and 9 touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball Dallas is led by DeMarcus Ware. Ware coming off a 19.5 sack season. The Cowboys will need the rest of the defense to step up in 2012 if the team has a shot to win the NFC East. The team used it’s first 4 picks in the 2012 draft to pick defensive players including Morris Claiborne 6th overall in the first round.

The Cowboys will win the NFC East and look to challenge the rest of the NFC in the playoffs to earn a spot in the Super Bowl.

Atlanta Falcons: Finally the year for Matt Ryan

Atlanta Falcons: Finally the year for Matt Ryan

Atlanta Falcons: Finally the year for Matt Ryan

The Atlanta Falcons led by Matt Ryan have been a pretty impressive team during the regular season but come playoffs he disappears. The team has made the playoffs 3 out of the 4 years since Ryan was drafted. The downside is they have loss all 3 games with Matt Ryan not putting up good enough numbers to lead the Falcons to a win.

This season looks to be different as the team looked to add playmakers on the defensive side of the ball this off-season by acquiring Asante Samuel from the Philadelphia Eagles while bringing in Mike Nolan to be the new defensive coordinator. Both of these acquisitions should help the defense improve as they were in the bottom 15 in points allowed in 2011.

Ryan along with the wide receiver pair of Julio Jones and Roddy White look to lead the Atlanta Falcons to the playoffs in 2012 including picking up a few wins along the road to the Super Bowl. Jones coming in to his second season in the NFL after grabbing 54 catches for 959 yards and 8 touchdown looks to improve in year 2. While Michael Turner looks to continue to up big numbers on the ground to help make the Falcons a difficult team to defend through the air or on the ground.

While Julio Jones is collecting a lot of attention on the offense his receiving partner Roddy White looks to continue his dominance coming off 5 straight seasons of 1000 plus yards while also reeling in 100 or more catches the past 2 seasons. These types of numbers should go up in 2012 with teams having trouble deciding on who to double cover him or Julio Jones.

Look for Matt Ryan to have his best season in the NFL in 2012 while throwing for over 4500 yards and 35 plus touchdowns in the air to help lead this team to the NFC South Crown along with leading the Falcons to his first Super Bowl as quarterback in 2012.

Never Give Up On The Dream

Never Give Up

Never Give Up

It was a 29-yard touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLV to open the scoring on what would be another Lombardi Trophy for the Green Bay Packers. But it’s not the touchdown or the Super Bowl win….it’s the men that made it happen.

Aaron Rodgers grew up in a hotbed of high school football talent in California. From his high school alone, three players received scholarships to play college football. He and two of his teammates were given the opportunity to play for…the local community college.

That’s right. Rodgers, like several other NFL stars, did not receive one Division I offer coming out of high school. But, he did not give up on the dream. Instead, after considering giving up football, he enrolled at Butte Community College where he was discovered by California coach Jeff Tedford, who immediately signed the future Packers QB.

Rodgers had a solid career as a Golden Bear leading Cal to a 10-1 record and a top-five ranking in 2004. He decided to forego his senior season at Cal, entered the NFL Draft, and was expected to be the first pick. Didn’t happen. But he was picked by the Packers in Round 1, spent a few years as Brett Favre’s backup, and now has a Super Bowl ring…and a Super Bowl MVP.

The receiver on the other end of that Super Bowl touchdown? Jordy Nelson. Not a household name, but he never was. Like Rodgers, Nelson had no Division I offers coming out of Riley County HS in western Kansas. Nelson was a tremendous athlete–he won the 100, 200, 400, and long jump at the Kansas state track meet his senior year–but could only muster a walk-on opportunity at Kansas State. He took it.

Nelson was a free safety his freshman year before head coach Bill Snyder asked him to move to wide receiver. The move paid off. By the time Nelson was a senior, he was a Biletnikoff Award finalist and an All-American. He was a second-round draft pick of the Packers and wound up on the receiving end of that first-quarter touchdown in Super Bowl XLV.

And so the story goes…young talented athlete. Can’t get a look anywhere. But he doesn’t quit. He perseveres. And he makes it. Clay Matthews, Tony Romo, Michael Strahan, and Terrell Owens. None of them had a legitimate Division I football scholarship offer coming out of high school. But every single one of them ended up in the NFL.

New York Giants vs. New England Patriots Super Bowl XLVI

New York Giants vs. New England Patriots
Super Bowl XLVI (36)
February 5th, 2012
Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis, IN), 6:29 PM ET

Analysis of the New York Giants
The Giants (9-6) barely got into the playoffs after downing the division rival Cowboys in the final week of the regular season. From there they went on an improbable run through the playoffs, getting by the Falcons before upsetting the (consensus best team in the NFL) Packers and 49ers, both on the road. Their defense has stepped up big in every one of these games and the play of QB Eli Manning has helped them earn their 5th Super Bowl berth in team history.

Analysis of New England Patriots
The Patriots had another dominate season, going 13-3 en route to the 1st overall seed in the AFC. They thoroughly dominated the Denver Tebows Broncos in the divisional round before squeaking out a tight victory against the Ravens in the AFC Championship. As always two people have led this team: their head coach Bill Belichick and QB Tom Brady. Their leadership has again made the Patriots Super Bowl contenders, participants, and favorites.

Key Players
As a side note, the two most important players on the field will be Manning for the Giants and Brady for the Patriots. In the Super Bowl, QB-play matters more than anything else. Period. The following players will also have a great impact on the game though:

Patriots: Rob Gronkowski
‘Gronk’ is suffering from a high ankle sprain that occurred during the AFC Championship game against the Ravens. That has been the only bad news to an otherwise record-setting year for the 2nd year TE. Gronkowski caught 17 TD’s in 2011-2012 with 1327 receiving yards, both of which are the highest numbers ever for a TE. His presence alone on Sunday will be enough to put Brady’s mind at ease and to present a matchup challenge to the Giants.

Giants: Osi Umenyiora & Jason Pierre-Paul
This was a tough call, as RB Ahmad Bradshaw needs to step up as well for the Giants to win. The D-line for the Giants is most important though as they absolutely have to put pressure on Brady in order for the Giants to come out with their 4th ring ever. That task falls on DE’s Umenyiora and Pierre-Paul, both of which have stepped up in all 3 playoff games leading up to Sunday. The Giants could really use constant pressure and 3 or 4 sacks so as to scramble the Patriots tough pass-first offense.

Key Statistics
Passing Yards:
The Giants ranked 29th in the league in opponent passing yardage during the regular season and the Patriots ranked even worse, coming in at 31st. While both defenses have stepped up during the playoffs, their secondary play against two of the best QB’s in the league is vital for each team to victory. Both defenses have big defensive line presences already, it’s just a matter of which QB will get around that and which secondary will take advantage.

Prediction
Few need reminders that these two teams met just 4 years ago in Super Bowl XLII, one of the greatest of all time. In that Super Bowl the Giants upset the undefeated Patriots, both teams being led by their current QB’s. This rematch is more than just any other game to these teams then, not because it’s the Super Bowl, but because each squad has something to prove. The Giants are out to prove they belong here after a mediocre season and the Patriots are out to prove they can beat the Giants in the most important of games. When bragging rights are on the line QB-play matters the most, and while Manning has played out-of-his-mind lately I’ll still favor the future Hall-of-Famer Brady.

Prediction: New England Patriots: 27 – New York Giants: 21

Madonna To Perform With LMFAO At Super Bowl

Because if there’s anything football fans love, it’s LMFAO.

Don’t get us wrong: we love both Madonna and LMFAO and are super happy we’ll get to see them during the Super Bowl, but we have to ask if other, more hardcore football fans will be saying the same thing!

We guess we’ll just have to see, because Will.I.Am just confirmed it:

“Will.i.am, who performed last year’s Half-Time Show with Black Eyed Peas, said he was going to attend the game to watch LMFAO.”

Wonder what they’ll collaborate on!

Whatever it is, it’ll be extremely high-energy! Count on that!

Are U excited for this, or are U confused by the choices this year?? Let us know your feelings on Madonna preforming with LMFAO and you would win tickets to the concert, sport or theater event of your choice.

Super Bowl – A brief history

The Super Bowl is the final contest of the NFL professional football season and determines the league’s annual champion. Currently the Super Bowl routinely finishes among the all-time top 50 programs in television ratings, and the 2011 game was no exception, setting a new record for the biggest American TV audience for a single broadcast, some 111 million viewers.
Now probably the most important single-day sporting event in the United States, the Super Bowl had more modest beginnings, as did the sport itself. Football in America had its start in a game November 6, 1869, when Rutgers and Princeton played a college soccer football game. The game used modified London Football Association rules. During the next seven years, rugby gained favor with the major eastern schools over soccer, and modern football began to develop from rugby. At the Massasoit convention, of 1876, the first rules for American football were written. It was here that Walter Camp, who would become known as the father of American football, first became involved with the game.

In 1902, baseball’s Philadelphia Athletics, managed by Connie Mack, and the Philadelphia Phillies formed professional football teams, joining the Pittsburgh Stars in the first attempt at a pro football league, named the National Football League. The Athletics won the first night football game ever played, 39-0 over Kanaweola AC at Elmira, New York, November 21.
All three teams claimed the pro championship for the year, but the league president, Dave Berry, named the Stars the champions. Pitcher Rube Waddell was with the Athletics, and pitcher Christy Mathewson a fullback for Pittsburgh. The first World Series of pro football, actually a five-team tournament, was played among a team made up of players from both the Athletics and the Phillies, but simply named New York; the New York Knickerbockers; the Syracuse AC; the Warlow AC; and the Orange (New Jersey) AC at New York’s original Madison Square Garden. New York and Syracuse played the first indoor football game before 3,000, December 28. Syracuse, with Glen (Pop) Warner at guard, won 6-0 and went on to win the tournament.

In 1903, the Franklin (PA) Athletic Club won the second and last World Series of pro football over the Oreos AC of Asbury Park, New Jersey; the Watertown Red and Blacks; and the Orange AC. Changes ensued over the next 6 decades — with names, teams, players, and conference alignments coming and going. And in 1967, Congress approved the AFL-NFL merger, passing legislation exempting the agreement itself from antitrust action, October 21.
That same year, the champions of the American Football League (which merged with the NFL in 1970) and the NFL met in what was called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. The name was later shortened to Super Bowl, named after a child’s toy, the Super Ball. In this first game, the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10. The Los Angeles Coliseum, site of the game, fell far short of a sellout, although tickets were only $10 each.

The National Football League’s Super Bowl XLVI will take place on February 5, 2012 in Lucas Oil Stadium in Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. It will be the NFL’s 46th annual Super Bowl.

Kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Eastern, 5:30 p.m. Central, 4:30 p.m. Mountain and 3:30 p.m. Pacific time.

Lucas Oil Stadium
Lucas Oil Stadium opened in August 2008. The normal seating for the stadium is 63,000 but will be increased to more than 70,000 for Super Bowl XLVI. The stadium cost approximately $720 million to construct and features a retractable roof and a unique large window at one end of the field.
