Florida not only comes back to knock off Alabama, but they cover the 10 point spread as well. Never thought I'd see a #1 team on a neutral field as a double digit dog.
Congratulations to Boston College on yet again losing the game that would put them into a major bowl so they can continue their streak of winning the Who Gives a Flying Fuck Bowl. And, even in a down season, Va. Tech ends up in the BCS.
Never knew the lose a time-out in each half rule for wearing the wrong jerseys.
Turner Gill will be a good coach at a big school real soon.

What Who Gives A Fck Bowl can BC go to now? They can't go to to the Humanitarian or the Armed Forces. The Gator and the Champs Sports is out too. Maybe Music City against Vandy? Yeah, I see that happening and BC winning too.

also - It's just a 1st half rule and I think it's just a Pac 10 rule. I think USC could have lost every timeout and 10 points each half and they would have won. UCLA sucks.

Yes the loser of the ACC title game can fall no further than the Music City bowl by rule.

I'm thankful this holiday season that Tebow only has one year left.

Fox must be expecting people to take 4 day holiday weekends by putting the Cotton Bowl on the 2nd. Interesting match-up though.
I'm taking the over in the Northwestern/Missouri game.
Using the argument people had against Notre Dame a few years ago: Who did Ohio State beat this year? They didn't score a touchdown against the 2 best teams they played.
If Notre Dame was going to end up in a minor bowl, at least it was the Degenerate Gamblers Bowl. Better ending up in Hawaii than in Shrevesport.
Music City Bowl should be packed, with Vandy bringing a large contigent for their first bowl in close to 3 decades, and Boston College always being counted on to bring about 17 people to watch the game.
The option vs. LSU should be interesting.
Miami vs. Cal in San Francisco. I wonder who will have most of the seats in that game.

To be a mature adult about this announcement: barf, barf, barf! Ugh, where to start?

1) Virginia Tech v. Cinci looked HORRIBLY unexciting to me until I kept reading down the list to see some of the other matchups and realized this is probably one of the better ones. Maybe I don't have as much respect for Cinci as I should, or maybe I'm just tired of seeing VT win the ACC.

2) I'm pretty shocked we're getting Alabama v. Utah. Maybe upon second thought there was no higher quality opponent left for Alabama to play, but after picturing Bama playing for the national title for over a month now, this seems like a big letdown. I wonder if Alabama's fans feel that way? I wonder if their players will PLAY that way!

3) Texas v. Ohio State is probably the most maddening of them all. If Ohio State doesn't win this game somebody move them to the MAC or something so they don't get to keep wasting BCS bowl spots. Also I feel kinda the same way about Texas as I do about Alabama, but I guess I've had a week or two to let it sink in that they were gonna be left out in the cold. Stupid Oklahoma running up the score every week...

4) Clemson, Nebraska, and Ole Miss playing on New Year's Day this season makes baby Jesus cry. Texas Tech being stuck playing Ole Miss (whose victory over Florida ended up meaning nothing to anybody) is 100 times more disappointing than any other matchup on the list, but at least they get into a prime bowl game.

5) On a more personal note, I want to KILL MYSELF seeing my Yellow Jackets playing a day BEFORE the stupid fucking Georgia Bulldogs who we just pwnt in their own house. I hope the Spartans beat them by 50, but they're the Spartans, so I know that won't be happening.

Finally, I will never understand why the Liberty Bowl (and apparently the International Bowl too?) are played so late in the bowl season. Aren't they throw-away bowls just like the ones in the December 20s? What's so special about them?

Geez, Ohio State....really? Texas is going to win that game by a minimum of four touchdowns. There is literally no reason why Boise State should've been ranked behind Ohio State in the rankings.

Here's hoping for a Utah win just to make the BCS seem like more of a joke.

On Ole Miss in the Cotton Bowl: Who else were you going to put there? The only other viable option was 7-5 LSU, who 8-4 Ole Miss beat late in the season, and Ole Miss has the hook of having knocked off the last 2 national champions this year. Plus with a Texas and Mississippi team in the game, they'll sell seats.
If the bowl politics didn't exist, Texas/Alabama would have been a great game to build up to Oklahoma/Florida. And both were at-large choices, so the automatic tie-in wasn't in play.
Michigan State vs. Georgia could be interesting to see who can pull defeat out of the jaws of victory the most times. Winner should get Clemson.
And, as a prelim to the bowls, anyway they could schedule an Oklahoma vs. Washington State game? I'd love to see a team that consistenly hangs 60 play a team that consistently had 60 hung on them in order to find out whether Oklahoma could score 100.

Cincy is a good story they've started like four or five different quarterbacks this year because of all these problems they've had. It's the team's first BCS game and conference title and all that. But to non-Big East fans, I think it would be pretty boring. They are not exactly an exciting team to watch if you don't know the players.


    3) Texas v. Ohio State is probably the most maddening of them all. If Ohio State doesn't win this game somebody move them to the MAC or something so they don't get to keep wasting BCS bowl spots.

Ohio State has won a BCS game more recently than any single team in the ACC...

They are throw-away bowls, but the networks want them there so they have something to show between the last non-title BCS game and the title game. The part I don't understand is why they don't just move the title game to an earlier date.

I fail to see how Utah winning would make the BCS a joke. I thought the whole idea of the BCS was to provide interesting bowl matchups, which would seem to imply that any of the teams involved could win. In fact, I'd say a Utah victory would further legitimize the BCS to that end, much like Boise State's win in the Fiesta Bowl did.

I heard the Humanitarian Bowl was trying to get Boise State vs. Ball State (before Ball State lost the MAC Championship), but Ball State wanted no part of it.

Only four bowl eligible teams weren't taken (all at 6-6): Bowling Green (from the MAC), Arkansas State and Louisiana-Lafayette (from the Sun Belt), and San Jose State (from the WAC).

Also congratulations to the University of Buffalo, who are going to their first bowl game in school history. They had previously been invited to the 1958 Tangerine Bowl, but declined the invitation because the playing field at that time had a rule against black players playing on the field at the same time as white players. Too bad they have to spend early January in Toronto though. :-P

Comments on the BCS bowls:

1. Just want to give one more "fuck you up the ass with a spiked dildo" to the Big 12 leadership and their ridiculous tiebreaking system that completely screwed Texas - who, in every other major conference (except the Big East) and the NFL, would be standing right where Oklahoma is right now. (This one's not on the BCS; it's solely on the shoulders of the conference.) I hope Florida takes Oklahoma behind the woodshed and gives the Sooners a solid curb-stomping without any mercy just to prove a point.

2. OTOH, the BCS is responsible for Ohio State's inclusion at Boise State's expense, which is another clear injustice especially in light of Boise being banished to a pre-Christmas bowl as a result. I know the system is about money, but seriously, I wish these bowl commissioners would grow a set once in a while and do what's right rather than what would gain them the most money. This is doubly painful in light of being the Fiesta Bowl, which rode Boise State to the bank two years ago with one of the best games in CFB history and should have shown them faith. I am likewise hoping that Texas delivers an identical scorched-earth destruction on the Buckeyes, again without any mercy just to prove a point.

3. Not that Florida doesn't deserve to be where they are, but I still wish Florida could have lost the SEC championship so we could have seen Florida vs. Utah, a far more compelling matchup than Alabama vs. Utah (even if the quality of the games themselves should be similar).

Quick picks:

Florida over Oklahoma
Penn State over USC
Texas over Ohio State
Alabama over Utah in a squeaker
Cincinnati over Virginia Tech

When did they start having the championship bowl on January 8, for goodness' sake? And other bowls as late as January 6? That just ain't right! Play the big bowls on New Year's Day, and have the championship the next night if you must. That should be it. The way nature intended.

So I'll be waking up early local time in Singapore to catch Northwestern against Missouri. If my Cats finally win their first bowl game since 1950, I may have to arrange to be out of the country for bowl season more often. B^)

Not the Big Ten, if I read theirs right. In the event of an "unbreakable" three-way tie, the Big Ten eliminates the team that has been their representative most recently first - in this case that would have been Oklahoma - and settles the tie between the remaining teams. That would give Texas Tech the championship over Texas.

I just logged onto Facebook and reminded myself why I can cheer for Florida during the regular season but usually end up hating them in the postseason. Florida fans are insufferable. I pray to goodness Tebow AND Harvin leave this year so I don't have to deal with any more Gator Chomps next year.

I like a lot of the lesser bowl matchups, but as for the BCS games, I see one potentially great BCS matchup in OU/Florida and four blowouts. USC over Penn State, Texas over Ohio State, Tech over Cincy, Bama whips Utah. Could be a very ugly set of games there.

Penn State is better than you guys think, and the obnoxious hatred for Ohio State completely clouds the fact that

a) They still have a winning record in BCS bowls;
b) The team that got clobbered by USC is significantly different than the one playing today, and they're one overzealous freshman mistake from being 11-1.

I think Penn State is going to surprise USC in the Rose Bowl, and Ohio State will roll over a Texas team that's still crying in their Cheerios about a rule they voted for.

Penn State isn't horrible and USC is a bit overhyped, but in truth USC's defense really is good enough to shut down State and I expect that is what will happen. Ohio State is fine, but if you really think Muschamp will let those guys cry over not playing for the title you haven't watched Texas. He's a crazy man and I fully expect Texas to come in looking to prove something against Ohio State. Sure Ohio State is one mistake from 11-1, but if you're gonna play that card, Texas is one last second miracle catch from 12-0 and is the only team to beat OU. That defense is gonna feast on a freshman QB.
