It's the most wonderful time of the year...With my Utes winning bowl games and BYU losing so I'll be of good cheer...it's the most wonderful time of the year...
--Ow! Tomatoes hurt you know. Sheesh...
During the regular season, I would normally do my fancy and mildly humorous graphical elements and those of you who would like me to feature their school's games, I would oblige. However, since we've got miles to go before we sleep, I'll re-ping the list as we go along and include said graphics. Sound like a deal? Excellent.
Tomorrow the fun will begin. (For me, at least). :)
Florida 35 Michigan 31 5:49 left.
Turnovers are the story so far - two Mike Hart fumbles on the Florida 1 yard line, and now Henne throws an interception that leads to the Florida go ahead TD.
Texas Tech trying to mount a comeback in the Gator Bowl. Now Virginia 28 TT 21 3 Min left.
Michigan receivers are playing a great game.
FL just did another touchdown. The Gators are a team that does not want to die trying to win, they want to win. Also I check in from time to time with the FL Gators because a brother, in his freshman year, who is UConn’s D.J. Hernandez’s younger brother from Bristol, CT plays for the Gators.
4:12 left Michigan 38 Florida 35. This might come down to whoever has the ball last.
Michigan is a tough fighting team.
Speed is going to be a factor in Hawaii’s favor. Georgia will need to have a running game or it is all over.
FUMBLE Virginia on thier own 5 - Texas tech recovers. WOW! Virginia has totally controlled this game and now Tech is 5 yeards from tying it.
Florida gives the ball up on thier own 25 after going for it on 4th down. THAT WAS A STUPID CALL BY MEYER!
TD Texas Tech. One of thier lineman is seriouslyinjured on the play however — badly broken leg.
Florida Defense comes up Big, forces Michigan to take a 42 yd FG attempt.
FG good — Michigan 41 Florida 35 2:21 left.
It looks like Michigan watched a lot of the Georgia-Florida film -— Georgia pressured Tebow up the middle all day and totally dominated him and Michigan is now doing the same thing.
Michigan just showed everyone how to defense Tebow, he is nothing when he has to make quick decisions under pressure. The kid is a great running back who can throw as long as he doesn’t have to think. Next year Tebow will have NOWHERE near the stats he had this year, and will be lucky to make it as a FB in the NFL.
Texas Tech at the Virginia 35 with 25 Seconds left.
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
the leaders and best
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!
Score was Virginia 28 Texas Tech 14 with 3:31 LEFT IN THE GAME
Now Texas Tech 31 Virginia 28.
Yep, the Heisman Jinx strikes yet again.
Please, don’t let Tebow win the Heisman next year. I want to win the bowl game.
And please Urban, find some players who know how to play defense.
But remember this was Tebow’s second year. Like UConn, Florida should consider this a learning moment for the returning players. Plus also Florida should not had done that dance in the middle of the field. That got Michigan really hot and they showed Florida a lesson or two in humility. Michigan had to pratice it for the last few years. At least for Carr, he can go out with his head held up high adding the seniors. :)
Wow, Virgina could be next to eat humble pie.
U of Michigan- 23-5-1 against the SEC and 7-3 against them in bowl games.
Well, join the club, dfwgator, of teams that should have won bowl games but did not, for me, UConn Huskies this past Saturday, for your Gators, today. Oh well.
Tech Wins!!!!!!!! What a game. I had given up.
This bowl game could be a preview of the upcoming bowl championship, with OSU vs. LSU. OSU could pull a suprise victory also against the Tigers.
A lot of those defensive players don't deserve to return. They should walk back home to Gainesville and pack their things after their disgraceful performance.
If UM/UF is any indication of how the BCS title game goes, shock may be my reaction.
No way did I think 975 yards of offense, or that UM would have 575 of them!
Anyone watch the hockey! That was fun to watch!
And let us see the ass kicking off Illinois commence. Of course, one wonders why the hell Illinois is in the game in the first place, but hey, tradition.
Yea for tradition.
Why should the gators have won? Michigan totally outplayed them. If Michigan hadn’t turned the ball over four times it would have been a rout.
Well thank the crazy college football season we had for why the Rose Bowl has this crazy mismatch.
Well Florida had some opportunities to win and they blew it bigtime.
And Michigan had opportunities to blow them out but blew them as well.
A little bit of the outside hockey, it should be done more because the NHL should have this once or twice during the regular season.
UM could take down UF, then OSU has a good shot of taking down LSU.
Yippie. 14-0 with about 7 minutes to go in the first quarter. But once again, we needed this matchup because of TRADITION!
I demand more TRADITION in college football next year!
I know this is mean, but I hope one of these showboats seriously injures a knee or ankle doing one of those stupid "Everyone look at me I scired a TD" flips. Act like you have been to the endzone before you selfish little creep!!!!!!
Int. ILL, then trickery by USC puts them up 14-0. This could get ugly really fast.
....Or better yet, since Michigan is going to be coached by Richard Rodregrez, the former head coach of UWV, expect what was seen today by Michigan to become the rule. BTW, speaking about the Mountaineers, it will be interesting tommorrow night when they play in the Fiesta Bowl. With the team having been in such turmoil the last few weeks, I do hope they can pull off a victory on the field.
This game was ugly when the made the matchup. How the Big 10 got two teams to major bowls is beyond comprehension. The Big 10 was one big pile of suck this year.
Well one of those Big 10 pulled off a win today against last year’s bowl champion. So for the Big 10, there is hope.
I have the feeling WVU will be in the same boat as Arkansas today. Arkansas lost thier coach and entire staff after the season, and it showed today — the team was totally lost as to what to do.
Yeah, but these lesser bowl games don’t mean much. I can’t count the number of times a higher ranked team lost to a lower ranked team because the higher ranked one just didn’t care. But I guess winning the prestegious Champs Sports Bowl is a great accomplishment.
Hang in there, next season will be here before you it.
I’m still walking around saying, “Illinois?”
People across the country are changing the channel in the 1st Qtr. What the heck, BCS people?
Well this is the BCS for you. Set up this way so we can demand more.
I never thought I’d see Harvin run down from behind. Bet his ego took out hit.
Florida was tied for 4th in the SEC. Michigan was tied for 2nd in the Big 10. Who cares what a team did last year?
As for the National Championship game, I’m still trying to figure out how the teams were chosen. I was shocked as can be that Ohio State lost last year except that there is the Heisman curse that seems to have an effect on Heisman winners. Ohio State should win this year’s game if we go by their record. But this has been a very strange year. I won’t bet either way.
"Illinois presented the tradition of the Big Ten-Pac-10, and wanting to stick with that tradition when we can was really the primary decision,'' said CL Keedy, president of the Tournament of Roses Association
Screw the idea of having a good game. We want, nay demand, tradition!
Heh. This just adds more fuel for my already white hot hatred of the BCS and the lack of a college football playoff.
