TicketCity / Capital One / Outback / Gator / Rose / Fiesta Bowls Thread

  • TicketCity: Northwestern vs. Texas Tech, 9a
  • Capital One: Michigan State vs. Alabama, 10a
  • Outback: Florida vs. Penn State, 10a
  • Gator: Michigan vs. Mississippi State, 10:30a
  • Rose: TCU vs. Wisconsin, 2p
  • Fiesta: Connecticut vs. Oklahoma, 5:30p

Four meaningless bowl games before noon, and then the BCS bowls start in earnest, with TCU and Wisconsin squaring off here in Pasadena, followed by a nationally-unranked logical-hogwash team playing Oklahoma in the only BCS game with an unranked team. Nice commitment to quality competition, o BCS gurus.

After wading through crowds of red-colored Wisconsin fans earlier this week, I'm looking forward to the Rose Bowl game, so that's the only logo I'm putting up today.

Happy new year, and feel free to go nuts for all six bowls in this thread!

Nuts!

Dusty Baker said...

I think I'll re-read some Vinny transcripts while I wait for the Rose parade to start.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I love those guys who dress up like JoePa. They crack me up.

Steve Sax said...

Rose Parade is ON!

Steve Sax said...

Anyone know if Josh S is sick, hungover, or both?

Josh S. said...

Was pretty sick over the last week, which meant I didn't feel like drinking enough to get hung over. Alas.

Steve Sax said...

Texas Tech up 24-6, almost at halftime

Steve Sax said...

Alabama and Penn State are each up 7-0 in the first

Steve Sax said...

Sorry to hear it Josh. Is Lucas okay?

Dusty Baker said...

SEC getting back on track versus Mich St.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

In five years, we'll all be either working for that skateboarding dog, or dead by his hand.

Dusty Baker said...

I love that dog. I know it's lame, but I do. Tilman I think is it's name.

Steve Sax said...

Playing Kinect with my kids. Good times.

Steve Sax said...

Alabama up 28-0

Florida with a 14-7 lead on pennstate

Mondesi said...

UCONN Baby! UCONN!!!

Eric Karros said...

Northwestern down 45-38, their last chance coming up with less than a minute.

DeSean Jacksonesque miracle punt return coming up?

Eric Karros said...

Nine seconds left on own 41. Good luck...

Eric Karros said...

First college football game of 2011 (and 1st ever TicketCity Bowl) is in the books.

TCU def. NU 45-38.

Eric Karros said...

There are 5 Big 10 teams playing today.

They are cumulatively losing 76-142.

Dusty Baker said...

^TTU

Dusty Baker said...

Nice of you to show up, Mich St!

Steve Sax said...

UConn? UConn't!

Steve Sax said...

Florida 27, Penn State 24 in the fourth

Josh S. said...

@Sax Lucas caught a mild and brief version of what I had. He's all good now, thanks!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I redirect Sax to this Deadspin article.

Dusty Baker said...

Should be a good finish for this FLA v Penn St.

Dusty Baker said...

SEC 3-0 on the day. Back to .500 now.

Eric Karros said...

Big Ten 0-4 on the day.

Outscored by 100 - 183-83.

It's up to you Wisconsin to even things up.

Dusty Baker said...

Helluva Rose Bowl duel thus far.

Steve Sax said...

Frogs looking awfully horny, up 14-10 in the second

Dusty Baker said...

14-13 randy frogs at the half.

Steve Sax said...

Mr LA sports Czar 1:12p: aha, nice call. I knew I had seen it someplace else.

Go Cardinal!

rbnlaw said...

The Rose Bowl ain't the same without the Pac 10(12).

Steve Sax said...

Great game here at the Rose Bowl. Frogs hold Bucky's two-point conversion attempt back, so TCU has a two-pt lead with 2:00 remaining

Dusty Baker said...

No one will be able to make me believe that it was the right play call for Pissconsin to throw instead of run on the 2-point attempt.

Steve Sax said...

Seriously, I agree they should have run.

That said, that Wisconsin intended receiver was WIDE open.

Steve Sax said...

What a surprise, weak-ass UConn is losing 20-10

Dusty Baker said...

34-20 but UConn isn't conning me into thinking they have a prayer.

Dusty Baker said...

41-20. Several forks stuck in this one.

Dusty Baker said...

No bowls tomorrow! Boooooooooooooo!

Mr. Customer said...

Well at least we'll have utterly meaningless week 17 NFL football.

Steve Sax said...

I do have good news for the rest of the bowl season on SoSG; stay tuned

Mr. Customer said...

*stays tuned*

Dusty Baker said...

*tunes in, turns on, drops out*

rbnlaw said...

What's on after the Chip 'n Dip Bowl? When's the Queso Dip Bowl?

Mr. Customer said...

Sheep dip bowl.

Mondesi said...

Fuck Mondesi!

Spank said...

I feel a whole lot better now.
