2008 Bowl Game Talk

Postby Metroid » Sun Dec 07, 2008 9:06 pm

Just a thread to talk about bowl match ups you find intriguing.

I'm really looking forward to that TCU/Boise St. match up in the Poinsettia Bowl as well as well as the Cotton Bowl with Texas Tech/Ole Miss. Oregon dialed up a tough match up in the Holiday Bowl against Oklahoma State and I'm digging the Oregon State/Pitt match up in the Sun Bowl.

What Bowls are you looking forward to?

I am also looking forward to the ole miss/TT game. Great SEC v. Big 12 matchup and people should see how good Ole Miss actually is. Cincy and VT should be a pretty solid game. Rice/WMU should be entertaining and NCST v. Rutgers is a great matchup, both teams have been rolling since early loses and both have looked great.

Georgia v. Michigan St. is kind of intriguing. I'm also excited to see if Alabama can actually beat Utah by triple digits...and no, I don't really think Alabama is that great, Utah is just so ridiculously overrated.

I'm looking forward to the Rose Bowl of coarse. :-B ;-D

Some other goodies are the Outback Bowl (Iowa/South Car.), Poinsettia (TCU/Boise), and of coarse the National Championship game. ;-D

Bama will beat them and do it soundly, but they will by no means pull a UGA/Hawaii. The score in the end may not reflect how well bama played either because Alabama plays down or up to their opponents. They played like crap against LSU and KY, but demolished UGA. They played Florida and Ole Miss well. I think they will be too physical for Utah and should run all over them, but I don't see a complete blow out.

Honestly, I do see a UGA/Hawaii type scenario. I definitely don't think that Utah is the best non-BCS conference team this year. In fact, I don't even think they're top 2. I'd take Boise St. or TCU over these guys. I could also probably come up with a list of 10 teams that didn't make a BCS bowl that I think are better, but I'm not really interested in doing so right now.

I agree on Utah. My point is Bama and how they play. They don't blow people out.

You're probably right about Bama, but if they play against Utah like they played against LSU, I think they'll win by 20.
