So, we come to the end of the regular season and into the post-season. Oregon and Auburn took care of business to get them into the title game. If Boise State was undefeated, VT's ACC win would have boosted them higher. FSU looked fairly clueless in the second half, I guess Beamer's 1-8 record seems had more to do with Bowden then FSU as a whole. I am so glad Oklahoma beat Nebraska. Nebraska's fanbase attacking the Big 12 commissioner and his family has shown why the Big 12 is probably better off without them. Those fans are in for a surprise when they go to Columbus and have sit around those people. UConn won the Big East, so we get another Big East team that really doesn't deserve to be there all for the sake of the cartel making sure even the weakest of divisions get a big payday to keep them happy.

I am curious to see how the rest of the bowls land when you have schools like Florida, Michigan State, Miami, Notre Dame, Alabama and PSU out there. A few of those match-ups could be great instead we will get bowl match-ups that will lead to a lot of one sided fights due to where they are in their conference. Bowl games were better with the bowls with names being picked out of a hat at least then you could put names people wanted to see.

So happy we get Auburn vs Oregon. Can't wait to see that game. Beamer's record against FSU had to do with those teams in those years. Plus for whatever it lost over the years, Mickie's D had a knack for shutting them down. The offense looked awesome with EJ, I have no problems there. Defense needs some safties and DL and they'll be better. Those safties just kept leaving guys wide open all night. Still a big improvement over last year so I'm happy. Now for Spurrier. Can't wait to hear his interviews this month.

Nebraska gets overlooked for Missouri. I'm sure the Big 12 pushed hard for that, and considering how crappy Nebraska fans are, I'm giggling.

Miami/Notre Dame is worth watching. VT/Stanford as well. Should be a fun bowl season.

I'd still consider the Holiday Bowl to be higher on the food chain than the Insight Bowl.
Rich Rodriguez's defense to keep his job: I beat a BCS team and earned a spot in a New Year's Day Bowl.
Air Force vs. Georgia Tech might be the quickest bowl game with both teams combining for less than 10 forward pass attempts.
They actually might sell the place out for the Sun Bowl.
Besides being old fashioned enough that the bowls should end on either January 1st or 2nd, having 6 days and several lesser bowls between the Sugar and the Title Game just kills the flow. And, the usual logic that there is a bowl in the Cotton Bowl on New Years Day, but it isn't the Cotton Bowl and the Cotton Bowl isn't played until 6 days later at a different location.
The non-UCONN BCS games look like solid match-ups. Now, if West Virginia had won the conference, the possibility would have existed that all the BCS games could have been solid match-ups. Will be interesting to see if Stanford travels though.

It's really funny that Boise State beats Virginia Tech in the first week of the season and Virginia Tech (even after losing to JAMES MADISON) ends up in a BCS Bowl while Boise State gets to play in obscurity.

TCU's lockdown defense against a Wisconsin team that posted 150+ points in two weeks is absolute must-see stuff. If TCU wins, they have to be considered legit, but I don't think they do. Wisconsin's a total beast.

I'd like to see TCU beat Wisconsin 63-3 just to see how many first place votes they can earn. Sadly, though, still no chance in hell for a split title this year.

Solid matchups or not (Auburn-Oregon should be especially sweet), still hate the bowl system. Save us, TCU!

Heh, I bet Nebraska is really pumped up to play a team it already annihilated this season.

They were just talking about this on Seattle sports radio this morning, where we are just as surprised as they are in Lincoln. Apparently most thought Nebraska would get picked by the Insight Bowl (the Holiday guys thought that was a done deal and were looking at Missouri/Washington) but allegedly the Big XII folks didn't want to see a Nebraska/Iowa Big Ten-preview matchup in the Insight and put the screws to the Insight guys (who took Missouri) as a way to give the finger to the Huskers for leaving the conference.

Washington also plays in Lincoln in September 2011, so that'll be three Huskies/Huskers games in two years. I can't complain, because I'm just glad the Huskies won the Apple Cup and are playing in ANY bowl.
