Check out Rose Bowl Central here. (And, “read why the Rose Bowl is the real national title game” here. Heh.) Go Trojans!!!
In other college football news… click here for my post on “Mid-major mayhem” between TCU and Boise State. I typed this up on Wednesday, but I accidentally failed to change the status from “Draft” to “Publish,” so it never appeared on the blog till now. (You can find it here on the homepage, too, but it’s way back at 12/24/03 11:11 AM, almost two-thirds of the way down the page.)
Anyway, speaking of mayhem, the Hawaii Bowl between Hawaii and Houston tonight went to triple-overtime, and ended in an on-field brawl (Merry Christmas!) as the Warriors, formerly known as the Rainbows, sought to prove they’re “not really gay” by beating their opponents to a bloody pulp. Okay, so I made that last part up. :) But anyway, the Warriors won, 54-48.
Hopefully those games will be a wee bit more entertaining than the first two bowls featuring major-conference teams, the Tangerine Bowl (N.C. State 56, Kansas 26) and the Las Vegas Bowl (Oregon State 55, New Mexico 14).
What thrillers… it’s enough to make you thank God we don’t have a playoff… heaven forbid these games actually mean something… Hooray for the grand tradition and pageantry of Kansas vs. North Carolina State!!!… Where would college football be without it?… Ain’t that right, Andrew? :)
UPDATE: Hey, did you hear senior Oklahoma QB and Heisman winner Jason White is coming back next season? Yep, he got an extra year of eligibility, and he’s returning! Looks like USC and Oklahoma will again be the best two teams in the nation… for the third year in a row. (That’s right, Ohio State and Miami and Georgia and LSU fans, you heard me right. Bring it on! :)
