In a way, I was disappointed. Not with the outcome, mind you - I'm a Gators fan myself - but rather that there wasn't much in the way of competition. The Orange Bowl is kind of turning into the way the Super Bowl was in the early '90's - lopsided and virtually suspense-free.
To me, all these bowl are meaningless...if you're not after the nat'l championship, then the bowl is meaningless...
"whoo-whooo! we are the insight.com champs!!!!"
the only thing that they "won" was a night game. the team gets $$$, but should bad teams be rewarded? the Big 12 had like what, 8 teams in bowl games...(Baylor, Kansas, OK State, and Missouri were the only big 12 teams not to make it to the post season)
how can you tell me that a team coming in 8th of 12 in a conf. gets rewarded with a bowl game???
How can Kansas State go (3-5) (6-6) and go to the insight.com bowl?
I was praying for Nebraska to win.
Only in college football can a team win the "National championship game" and still not be the National Champs...(a cornhusker win all but guarented a Duck-'Cane co-championship)
And only in College football could a team lose the "National championship game" and be declared the (co-)National champs...
All the whiners say, "But it will ruin the tradition of the bowl games." And I say GOOD! it's a sucky tradition. I for one will not miss a minute sleep if they get rid of the GalleryFurniture.com Bowl.
We need a playoff, bigtime.
By the way, congrats to Miami, but GO GATORS!

Most studies have shown that publicly funded stadiums are not worthwhile economically, which frankly is the only thing that the local government should care about. They should not be in the business of subsidizing billionaires.
