Holiday Bowl Blues

The Holiday Bowl follows the same script every year. You have the gritty, gutty team that's overjoyed to be there, and you have the team that's ticked off it isn't in a bigger game. Last year, the Beloved Cougs were team A, and Texas was team B. Wazzu came out and played harder, smarter and tougher than the Longhorns, and by the time Texas figured it out, the game was over. The previous year it was Arizona State and Kansas State. ASU played tough, but KSU got it together in time to win.

Last night, after three weeks of caterwauling that they were screwed out of the Rose Bowl by Mack Brown, by the BCS, by Texas sportswriters, by whomever, the Bears came out and laid an egg. Texas Tech was better last night. They were smarter, faster, and they wanted this game, while it was obvious Cal didn't.

Nice going Golden Bears. Way to prove the Longhorn assholes right.

That game had me really disappointed in the bears.
I think that if they were in the rose bowl then they would have played better.This still doesn't justifies the fact that we were screwed out of the rose bowl.

No, you're right; Cal was screwed out of the Rose Bowl. Only now nobody east of Nevada is going to realize that.
