Now that the bowls are set, is anyone else disappointed?

OU vs. UConn in the Fiesta? Really? I guess the BCS wants to give Stoops a BCS bowl win since he's lost the last 5.

Nebraska vs. Washington in the Holiday Bowl? They played already this year & Nebraska blasted them. Also, UW was 6-6. :lol:

Oklahoma State & Arizona in the Alamo Bowl.

Only disappointment for me is I would not mind seeing Arizona get some revenge on Nebraska for last years Holiday Bowl disaster.

Very disappointed.

Stanford should be playing Oregon for the national championship.

Short of that, we should be playing Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.

But we have to play the #11 team in the Orange Bowl. And the Orange Bowl committee expects us to travel for that?

I can't agree with that. While I appreciate that Stanford is a really good team... We already had Oregon vs Stanford this year and Oregon won big. No need to replay that for the national championship even if Auburn and TCU had both lost their final games.

Some of the matchups, incidentally, are poor because of the BCS agreements to take teams from certain conferences. That's how UConn gets into a BCS bowl when they are hardly worthy of playing in that kind of a bowl.

It's also ironic to me to compare Boise St and Virginia Tech.

Consider... Boise beats Va Tech in game #1, and then Va Tech loses to James Madison... and for weeks everyone says that de-values Boise's win... but then Va Tech doesn't lose the rest of the season... Boise has 1 loss to a good and ranked Nevada team... and Va Tech gets a BCS bowl as the ACC champ, while Boise is relegated to the Generic Afterthought Bowl game.

Clearly all the games do NOT count as they would have you believe... otherwise Uconn wouldn't be in a bowl instead of Michigan St or some other highly ranked team... and Va Tech wouldn't be in a better game than Boise, after Boise beat them and Va Tech lost to a lower division team... a James Madison team that IF Va Tech had won, wouldn't even have counted as a win towards bowl eligibility!

Stanford got blasted by Oregon once already...What would 2 blowouts prove? How can you not think Auburn's better than Stanford?? They went undefeated in the best conference in America.

TCU was picked over Stanford because they had to be by a new rule requiring the Rose Bowl to pick an eligible team from a league without an automatic BCS spot once every four years if a Pac-10 or Big Ten team is in the national title game.

VA Tech will beat Stanford.

Couldn't have said it better :bowdown::bowdown:

My Bulldogs are playing in Boise again this year, but this time against Northen Illinois in the Humanitarian Bowl....I went when we beat Virginia in 2004, looking into travel for this years, but with a 10 month old son, probably gonna just enjoy it at home in front of the fire and the HDTV :lol:

I still don't get why they didn't flip us.

You guys would go better to Phoenix.
We would go better to Miami.

Makes no sense...

It's because Fiesta had the last pick for a team to play OU. The Orange folks wanted a higher ranked team.

I like your style. Bielema was under a little scrutiny at the start of the season around here, but has proven himself well.

The icing on the cake will be a Rose Bowl Victory. There will be lots of beer, brats and cheese/sausage trays at this house come gametime!

TCU will win if Dalton is healthy.

I can't wait to see how "cream of the crop" hdtvfan's Big Ten is. ;) I bolded my picks.
Missouri vs. Iowa
Illinois vs. Baylor
Northwestern vs. Texas Tech
Florida vs. Penn State
Alabama vs. Michigan State
Mississippi State vs. Michigan
Wisconsin vs. TCU
Ohio State vs. Arkansas

I guess I'm just too old, but I agree with this take:

Kids are making their lists. Santa Claus is checking them twice.

You know what that means.

No, not Santa Claus … the never-ending Bowl season is about to begin.

There are 35 Bowl games this season, starting with the New Mexico, Humanitarian and New Orleans Bowls on December 18. The games stretch until the January 10 BCS Championship Game between Auburn and Oregon in Glendale, Arizona.

There was a time I always felt invested in a team the Rose Bowl. Now it's "who?"

But then I had enough trouble adjusting when the Pacific Coast Conference became known as the Pac-8. And then I had apoplexy when it became the Pac-10.

They would have been had they lost early in the season and not later.....

The key was Wisconsin beating Ohio State when Ohio State was #1 in the nation.

And I don't remember (off the top of my head) Wisconsin losing a Rose Bowl game...at least in my era.

Sorry TCU.....not looking good.....as long as all 3 of our running backs are healthy. :)

TCU will win...Or I'll put a UW Badger avatar up.

63....that would be a couple years before before my dad even dreamed of me! :lol:

No matter who wins...it's a good excuse to have a party. The 47" HDTV above the fireplace during the cold Wisconsin winter....can't beat it (unless I was in Pasadena of course)!

I'm cheering for red roses and jerseys.

Naaaa....their schedule was too weak to hit the ranking high enough. Maybe if their uniforms were a more appealing shade of green? :lol: Sorry.
