Those guys are all padded up. Therefore, their brawl is less impressive than the IND/DET melee.

Both still better than any recent WWF PPV though.

It was even better than the news made it out to be. The Gamecocks waited at the bottom of the field for the Tigers after they touched the rock before the game even started.

Not exactly the classiest way for Lou Holtz's non-bowl career to end. GO TIGERS!!

Word came in that both Clemson and South Carolina will decline any incoming bowl invitations Click Here (thekansan.com) ... I would say that's a very big move on the administrations part. Dare I say maybe even a little harsh.

I think it's a big PR move really.

Neither were going to a big bowl and, depending on which lower-tier bowl they ended up in, a school can lose money on a bowl game.

and both schools will get still their fan share of $ from their cut of the BCS pie.

According to ESPN.com, there are 56 bowl-eligible teams right now. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=1922915 .
With Clemson and SC declinging bids, that's 54 teams. There are 28 bowl games this year, which means we need 56 teams. Either Hawaii or Northwestern will make it in, but I'd like it if there weren't any others. They'd have to cancel the New Orleans bowl or something like that.

And the bowl that has to select Troy isn't going to be happy anyway.
