Who Gets To Go To Glendale, The Sequel

It's Michigan.

Eric McNeal's deflection and catch were unbelievable. What quick hands.

Musberger said it, "that's why they play the game." USC, heavily favored by as much as 13 points, was upset at the Rose Bowl tonight by arch rival UCLA. And now we'll never get an answer to the Shelly vs. Casca debate.

But instead, we all get a rematch between Ohio State and their arch rival Michigan, undisputably the second best college football team this year. I wanted to see OSU vs. USC, but now I, and the rest of America want the Big 10 rematch.

And I don't want to hear anything about Florida or that strength of schedule bullshit they were peddling on tv tonight. You all saw the Florida Arkansas game. I ask you, did that sloppy Gator team look like they could do anything but cower and hide against either of the Big 10's best? I want to see a game in January, not a blowout.

Update: Hey wait a minute. Cal beat UCLA by two touchdowns. We should go to the Rose Bowl!

How nice of you to speak for the rest of America. You're certainly speaking for me. This rematch will be historic. Michigan has earned that number two spot. Great teams find a way to win. USC hasn't been great since their loss to that punkass UT team last year. My only fear is that the fucktard sportswriters will elevate Florida if they win tonight. The SEC is over-rated.

Anybody seen Shelly? He's probably in the attic wrapping a tourniquet around his neck to stop the rectal hemmorage. LMAO, that's what you get for all your shit-talking. Pete Carrol thinks he's going back to the Rose Bowl as the two loss champ of the PAC 10. I'll predict the USC loss now.

Chris Leak, Chris Leak! Leak just shovel-passed the ball to an Arky def lineman, and let him do the pick six. Oh yeah, they're good in an inbred southern sort of way.

What do you mean, "And now we'll never get an answer to the Shelly vs. Casca debate."? Oregon State beat them on the road. The other film school beat them decisively in their backyard. USC couldn't make it to the NC game when it was being handed to them. If anything, USC's loss shows what a weak team Notre Dame really is.

I've offered to cover all bets against the Buckeyes, against any opponent. There are still no comers.

It's hard to blog when there is blood pouring from every apeture.

There are no excuses; USC was not ready for prime time and that's the sad truth of it.

Casca wins this round; in the time honored tradition of college football, I utter the sanctified phrase "Wait 'til next year".

Now, I intend to get in the bathtub and slit my wrists.

Wait: Saving grce: My undergraduate degree is from....... UCLA. Go Bruins!!!!!

LOL, you're not getting off that easy.

Mr. Casual looked shellshocked in the postgame interview. Guess that's what you look like when you've just lost half of your closest personal friends. Karl Dorrell on the otherhand is certainly a rising star. It's about time UCLA returned to respectability.

This football season is officially OVER.

I never thoought I'd welcome back Peter Pumpkin and Glowee.

Well, I saved a shitload of money and a long drive to Phooenix/Glendale. And, I didn't even have to watch the thing, as I am in D.C. and was having a drink with my buddy Rich who writes "Mullings" and then to dinner at the Palm.

Also, someone sent me Brittany's commando photo to cheer me up.

Hey, don't try to take Cal out of the Holiday Bowl just because you know they're going to lose to Texas A&M. Just stand up and take your lumps...

Posted by: Duncan Avatar on Dec. 3, 2006

Wait a sec. Cal and USC split the title. How will the criminals in the PAC 10 front office decide on who gets the BCS seat? Oh, they'll just fall back to the head-to-head argument, and the Bears will roll over and take it, cause that's what they know how to do.

You're in DC, Shelly? Dang, if I'd known you were coming I'd have offered to buy you a beer before the hockey game.

it's sc in the rose bowl because they beat cal that they won the title, like it would have been cal if they'd beat sc (even if sc had beat ucla)

i think, as a cal fan, that the holiday bowl should be a good team, cal will come to play, and hopefully not stink up the place like they did against texas tech 2 years ago. A&M much bigger name though, and that year cal was salty at the bcs snub (which THAT year) they deserved.

as for florida, i love it. nothing against the big10, but mich-OSU 1 was the big ten championship, and OSU won it, so they win that battle, period. a rematch would have solved nothing about the national title, if michigan were to beat OSU in natl title game, it would almost be like they were co-champs (in my mind)

ummmm, ok, my blab is over. go bears, and sorry trojans, tough break (bwahahahahahahahhaha)

Sorry dude, but not even the QB's mother gives a flying fart what the Bears are doing this holiday season. Just so long as they're not in jail.
