Guess there are not many Iowa fans in the show me state!
Got alot of good points Herby! The biggest reason we root for the Hawkeyes is because we don't have a local Pro team. And if we did , what would we call them? Porkchops, Corn Cobs or maybe the Cowpies? Not many Bluegrass fans up here but I love it and the Queen is one of my favorites! Made the trip to Springfield last year and was amazed by the Rage.
I do hope you are right for the Gator Bowl!
Dear Swami,Thank you very much for posting your projected bowl game winners. That helps the rest of us know which teams to bet against.I'm finding it very scary that I agreed with you on several things. I was very disappointed in the TCU-Boise State matchup. I suspect that the BCS bigwigs are getting tired of being embarrassed by the Mountain West and WAC. I also dislike the Florida-Cincinnati game, because it's just a shame that somebody has to win. On the bright side, at least one of them will lose.I don't have the in-depth knowledge of all these teams like you do, Swami, but I did notice that the Big 12 isn't as good as it was last year. I also noticed that you went with quite a few Pac 10 teams, despite that disclaimer preceeding your Rose Bowl pick. I can't really argue with picking Oregon, but you can't get them all right, so you might as well miss that one. OHIO STATE 's defense has carried the offense all season, but they haven't seen anybody who can run the ball like Oregon. Now that they've reinstated their suspended tailback, they're going to be especially tough. Our defensive line has been great all year, so it's going to be an interesting matchup. We also have a great punt returner, so hopefully our defense and special teams will score at least three touchdowns. That may be our only chance.As you know, I don't like anything about the BCS. TCU definitely earned a chance to play for the national title, but so did all of the other conference champions. Under the current system, ten teams go to BCS games, so I'm not sure who you would put in there other than Iowa. Penn State was really the only other candidate and they lost to Iowas. The Hawkeyes weren't a dominate team, but they pulled out a lot of close games, so you have to give them credit for that. Texas didn't exactly look impressive against the Cornhuskers, but they won it in the end, even though it took 60 minutes and 1 second. I guess there's some justice in that, after the Longhorns got cheated out of the championship game last year.I don't really care that much about conference pride, but I'll be supporting all of the Big Ten teams, especially since the wolverines will be sitting home watching the games on TV. I can't even remember the last time that michigan went to a bowl game, but I think that Sarah Palin still had a job.
GLK.....Some of us like Sarah Palin. Trying to keep this interesting for those that don't like Ballgames......& don't have a favorite.....
Well GLK, all I have to say to you is....you put your right foot in, you take your right foot out, you put your left foot in, then you shake it all about.
Oops, and one Big Easterner. Sorry Susan, but your posts are so long that I never have time to read them!
