I think my wish list for this year is reasonably simple and in no particular order:
I’ll start in the Who Care Bowls with (1) Wake Forest vs. Navy playing in the Eaglebank Bowl. I want…Wake to win simply because ever since I saw the Movie Bryans Song I have had a special place in my heart for the Demon Deacon’s. (2) Colorado St. vs. Fresno St. at the Toilet Bowl I have a cousin at Fresno so I guess go Bulldogs. (3)Memphis vs. South Florida WHAT? I didn’t know they were D-1. (4) BYU vs. Arizona Ya know I am a Mormon and it has been said that this is the Lords University and all, but I don’t think I’d be too apostate if I say that I would like to see Mike Stoops do well, so I am hoping for a Wildcat win in Vegas. (5) Southern Miss vs. Troy State are competing to win the Cereal Bowl. When I was a kid my dad and I were in Alabama and it was the first time I saw a real football stadium up close and it was very impressive for me. I was in high school when I first heard that they bumped up to D-1 and I was excited for them then and I was excited again when they almost beat LSU, and I am excited for them now. I hope they beat Brett Farve’s Alma Matter. (6) Boise State vs. TCU I think that this is a great match-up. I know that 2 years ago both these teams had beat OU but I hold no grudges. I would like to see the Horned Frogs of TCU win this game! (Just refer to my first and third blog.) (7) Hawaii vs. Notre if Norte Dame losses then Charlie Wise might drop down to coach JUCO to Football. So, honestly I am pulling for a Hawaii win even though I think that Norte Dame is going to win . (8) Fla. Atlantic vs. Central Mich, WVU vs. UNC, Miami vs. California, and Northern Ill. vs. La. Tech I don’t care who wins, I probably won’t watch any of these games. (9) Wisconsin vs. Florida State I am pulling for the Big-10 to suck it up, so lets go Noles.
Ok, the Big Kid Bowls (1) The Fiesta Bowl Texas vs. Ohio St. I am not a fan of the Big-10 or Ohio State, and normally I cheer for anyone of the Big-12 to do well, but this year I WANT TO SEE THE WHINNY TEXAS LONGHORNS LOSE AGAIN THIS YEAR! (2) Utah vs. Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. I am not a big fan of Nick Saban, but then again I am not a big fan of Utah either. I think that I am going to pull for Utah to win because then it is one more pull for a playoff. But, then again I don’t really care who wins this game. (3) In the Fed-ex Orange Bowl we have Cincinnati vs. VT. Honestly I think that there are more deserving teams to play in this Bowl, but this is the system that we have to live with and I pick Cincinnati to win simply because OU’s win over this BCS team earlier this year helped the Sooners to the National Championship Game, so GO BEARCATS! (4) 1922 USC won 1981 Penn State won I hope this year Joe Paterno breaks the tie in the 2008 Rose Bowl (Side note Joe Paterno was present all three USC Penn State Bowl Games)
The National Championship Game Of course I want to see Oklahoma over Florida in this game (refer to just about any of my blogs)
