The Cotton Bowl should be a great matchup.

I'd better find new batteries for the remote control, though. It's going to get a workout.

Good morning. You think ABC would like to swap the time slots between the Fiesta and Sugar bowls?

When I was kid my brother and I would bring in two black and white tv's so we could watch all the games at the same time.

Time slots should definitely be swapped for those two bowls. Looking forward to the OSU/Notre Dame matchup.

Might wind up being a better game than the Rose Bowl.

Good defense, but their offense needs a little work. In their last game, the quarterback just couldn't get out of the backfield without kissing the turf. Eleven sacks.

There are a lot of people working today that will miss the 1st QTR of the Fiesta Bowl....

So, who wants to be the first to point out that the "Tiny 12" are currently 5-1 in bowl games?

Ah, I guess that'll be me ;)

I may have to miss the first hour of the Tech Game...waiting for one customer to come in and them I'm out the door. I have all of my workers off today.

The Rodney Dangerfield of College Football (TCU) wrapped up another winning season with a victory over ISU on Saturday.

I just hope it's a slightly more competitive game than the Peach Bowl.

I don't think so. She didn't mention it anyway. Not like her to be missing this game and commenting on it!

Maybe she's on her knees praying a rosary for this game like the rest of us should be.

I agree with you -- think that game will be one of the best if not the best game of the BCS.
