Well you can’t! And your conference sucks! That’s according to the Louisville football team, who honored their bowl game’s title sponsor and got a little beef going over the weekend at a Beef O’Brady’s Bowl promotional event. A three-hour pre-game event known as the Beach Bash was cut short after just 30 minutes when state troopers intervened between two teams who had started talking trash and Charlie Strong took his team and went home.
So, what could have created such a commotion? What deeply rooted fire caused the two teams to turn on each other so quickly and ruin a fun-filled day for the three or four families who traveled to St. Pete? Umm, I’ll let an anonymous Southern Miss player take it away with one of the greatest quotes of all-time. Or at least the greatest in the pre-bowl scuffle category.
“They started talking trash about us being in Conference USA, [that] we can’t dance… it was stupid. We’ll do our talking on the field,” uttered one Golden Eagle who refused to be identified. “A friendly dance competition and they take it all serious? It’s ridiculous.”
Yes, the Dougie. First it divided Israel and Palestine and now it has torn up the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl.

Yes, Virginia, there are too many bowl games.
In fairness, though, you know you wish you could dance like this:
