I'm still fighting a nasty head cold, so I didn't do much for New Year's.... well... to be honest, I usually don't do much for New Year's. Always thought it was amateur night - the night that people who don't drink a lot decide that it's okay for them to get completely plastered all together, then puke on each other's shoes. If you happen to be around them, they'll go ahead and puke on your shoes, too.
No offense if you happen to be one of those people - you know who you are anyway.
Anyway, I thought I'd open up a New Year's Bowl Game open thread. If you want to stop by, comment on the games, what you did last night (if you can remember), and maybe what you've made for New Year's resolutions.
The Outback Bowl has already started - Northwestern vs Auburn
I can't stand Auburn. More to the point, I can't stand Gene Chizik. Plus, there's nothing like rooting for a bunch of geeks to knock off a SEC school.
The Gator Bowl is starting now - Florida State vs West Virginia
Bobby's last game - the end of an era. Say what you want about Bowden's last few years, but the man put Florida State on the map and had so many incredible teams, it's sad to see him go. I'll be rooting for the 'Noles in his last game.
Bowden coached at West Virginia years ago. In fact, he helped Marshall get back on their feet after their tragic plane crash in 1970.
Capital One Bowl - Penn State vs LSU
Will someone get Old Man Sutter out of that well? Probably not, but maybe we'll find out that Lady pushed him in there in the first place.
4:00 pm - Rose Bowl - Ohio State vs Oregon
Who's not rooting for Oregon here with the exception of Ohio State fans?
7:30 pm - Sugar Bowl - Florida vs Cincinnati
Anyone not rooting for Cincinnati?
