Here is the day we have all been waiting for. The "New Year's Day" bowl games are on the day after, but there are some great matchups today.
Look at at least 2 upsets....
Well, the fat lady isn't singing yet.
They are playing soccer at the Outback Bowl....
The Hawkeyes just got screwed on a personal foul. Spielman went OFF about the call too....
And she's a hottie.
AJ has the pick of the litter there at OSU anyway, and he didn't do badly at all :)
Going into today's games:
Big 12 (8)........4-2
Mountain West (4).2-2
Sun Belt (1)......0-1
Big East (4)......0-2
Big Ten (7).......0-3
I think the Big Ten is only going to win 2 bowl games...
Ohio State and Penn State.
Little Rain and my cable is out. I need scores, please help.
Florida is beating the ever-lovin crap out of Iowa 24-7
Alabama and Texas Tech are in a good one, Alabama is up 7-3
Wisconsin and Auburn are just starting.
Does anyone else find those birdseye camera shots from above and behind the players distracting? (The camera hanging from the wires over the field.) I think they really, really detract from the game. Go Raiders!
I kinda like them actually.
Just so long as they use them for replays instead of live action. I don't think it's quite good enough yet for the live stuff....
I am going to go watch some more.
I'll be back....
7-0 Wisconsin over Auburn and Wisconsin is driving again
14-3 Louisville over VT but VT is driving
10-3 Bama over TXTECH
Louisville wow, Thought Wisconsin had no defense, Thanks...still out.
well Wisconsin plays decent defense when it wants too...
but it's amazing that Wisconsin is able to move the ball so successfully against Auburn's defense
And the Big 10 currently has nothing in the W column. It's probably going to be up to THE Ohio State University. Unless Iowa can work a miracle against Florida.
Good for them, so this is 1906 A.D., guess I'll go feed the mules.
That's right, Penn State should come up with the win. But so far not an impressive showing for the Big 10 (although Wisconsin is winning right now).
What channel is VaTech playing on?
whatever your NBC channel is....
they had some really tough matchups this year.
Michigan would have been better against UCLA than Northwestern and Northwestern would have been better against Nebraska...
Iowa has been torched on the ground all year long.....
no problem :)
is it me, or does Auburn NOT look like they are very motivated?
I cant help you on that one.
I'm splitin between you and espn...She still wants to talk
Auburn will score.....
yeah but will it mean anything?
Funny for you...I'm diein' here.
that sucks man....I'm sorry
The Outback Bowl was starting to get interesting. Iowa had cut the lead to 10 and had stopped Florida and was going to get the ball back, but Urban Meyer did a punt fake and got the 1st.
now it's boring again...
Texas Tech ties Alabama at 10-10 with less than 3 minutes left.
Saints fire Jim Haslet.
TT 10 bama 10
I just better get to see Ohio put a poundin on.
Nice choke job by Texas Tech, allowing Alabama to drive from their 15 with little time left on the clock.
Barely made it over the crossbar.
WOW! What an ending to the Cotton Bowl! FG as time expires, what a great game. The Cotton Bowl has been my favorite Bowl game for years...always seems to be a great game.
ESPN udateds are better than I have but, man those Hayes 2400 modems have got to go.
Iowa recovers the perfect onside kick!
Except bullcrap phantom offsides call by the referee nullifies it. Replays clearly show NO offsides, another bowl game ruined by a pompous idiot referee.
heartbreaking. just heartbreaking. just damn.
yep......Eagles have NOT been playing as a team....yet
They've got to stop playing 'personal'....and play....as a team....
Forget the 'stats'.....play ball......
should end up a 'close'.....game.....
Iowa got absolutely and completely F'd on that call.
Man, talk about a lame duck !!!
yeah that FG was something else....
What does the New Year look like for Penn State? Anybody hazard a guess?
