Bowl Wrap Up

28 bowl games later the college football season is over. In our household, this is reason to celebrate for the Missus anyway. I went 16-12, which ain’t bad. I screwed up and never posted my call for the Peach Bowl, which was Miami in an ugly game. Well, it was ugly for the Hurricanes anyway. I was half right.

Last night’s game was epic, and I don’t want to take anything away from Vince Young or the Longhorns, but ‘SC was really sloppy. Patriot-Era Pete Carroll showed up in Pasadena. Two 4th-and-shorts without your Heisman winner on the field? Blowing a timeout on a two-point try? Reggie Bush’s inexplicable lateral?

I mean, do they think this a mid-September game against Rice or something?

In the end it didn’t matter, because nothing or nobody that USC had could stop Young. Just an awesome performance. I really hope he sticks around for another year, but other than the Heisman I can’t imagine why he would. Well, that and the chances of being drafted by New Orleans.

Next Year:

1. Texas – only if Young stays
2. Ohio State
3. West Virginia
4. LSU
5. USC
6. Florida
7. Michigan
8. Oklahoma
9. Notre Dame
10. Oregon
