    Skipped the Depends Toilet Bowl where Tuscaloosa State Anteaters were playing the West Reno Teachers College Tapeworms. Only watched the good games.

    Watched one bowl game. Did watch the Texas bowl and see K-State finish running the table on Texas teams. Too busy doing nothing to be bothered by college games that don't mean squat. They need to do away with bowl games and go to an extended playoff system.

    This idea that bowl games are meaningless is stupid. They mean a lot to the fans of those teams, and to the teams themselves. The team gets an additional 15 practices that non bowl teams don't. Do they mean anything to the end goal of a championship? No, but they never did. For ages it always came down to only one game or two.

    Plus the money the schools get is always a bonus. I watched the Hokies/Razorback game and the FSU/Michigan game. Both were awesome.

    The Rose Bowl game was awesome. Best bowl game in years.

    Agreed, great game! The USC freshman QB couldn't be rattled.

    Thanks to that last second field goal, I finished 3rd in my pick-em rather than 1st. :mad:

    I hope Clemson makes a game of this contest. I'm getting a little sleepy watching all this defense.

    This is what that Alabama running back looked like on his TD run.

    That was the best FB Championship game I've ever seen. Even better then the SC/Penn State game.

    So far I've received three emails congratulating Clemson on their win... two from Foot Joy and one from Titleist.

    Most excellent win by the Badgers over the Hurricanes, Hornibrook actually looked like a damn good QB. Big 10 goes 7-0 in Bowls but never gets any respect by the talking heads. Gotta have Bama in the title game every fukkin yr though.

    I'm hoping Clemson absolutely blows Alabama off the field so the experts know it should have been Wisconsin playing in that game instead of Alabama. :mad:
