(They ought to fire Lane Kiffin!) It will be interesting to see how Stanford and Oregon stack up in the next couple of days.

Kiffin really has coached that team into the ground. I know he's not their only problem but every time I see USC play Kiffin makes some boneheaded decision that blows the game.

5 games on the slate for the B1G today. Hopefully they don't get slaughtered by the SEC today.

I can't fucking believe some people are actually picking NIU to beat FSU. Are you kidding me?

If this were the Buttfuck Bowl I could see FSU coasting and maybe even losing to an inferior opponent ala USC vs GTech, but a BCS bowl? Who comes out unmotivated for that?

Alabama.

The non-AQ's have done pretty well in the BCS bowls losing only 2 games with one of the losses to another non-AQ. But still, I see no way FSU loses this even if they're unmotivated.

Its not just a BCS bowl. Its the Orange Bowl. Nothing FSU fans like more than showing up UM in their own stadium.

^That was a thing of beauty. Though he was getting shut down the rest of the game by UM's tackle.

Then they "solved" it, and now Tech is back to mediocrity. USC doesn't have the luxury of playing Tech annually, so the Trojans were ripe for getting beaten by an offense that hasn't seen widespread use since before its players were born.
It also didn't hurt Tech's chances that USC clearly didn't want to be in that bowl in the first place.

I predicted the same thing but none of my friends believed me. Then I predicted Iowa State was going to win and lost all my credibility.

Also, GO DAWGS!

Not surprisingly, the B1G got hosed. In Australia, so I didn't get to watch many games... I did see Wisco holding strong for a while, and was pretty sad they couldn't finish the job. I bet that was a good ending.

As a UGA alum, I was glad to see the Dawgs win, making the B1G 1-2 against the SEC. And I can't really get that sad about the scUM losing either. So.... considering every team in the b1G played "up" a bowl with tOSU out for the season, it could have been a LOT worse. (I thought they might get blanked... M State and NWern were both a big surprise.

The fact that my facebook feed is filled with exhortations after we beat Northern fucking Illinois is just a sign of how underachieving Florida State has been the last decade or so. What a joke. There isn't a single NIU starter that anyone would say is better than their FSU counterpart. Their linemen looked like they worked at Krispy Kreme. Their "star" quarterback looked slow, unathletic, and small. Their d-line was a bunch of fat guys who still managed to weigh an average of 55 lbs less than the guy lined up across from them.

BUT WOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE BEAT NIU BY 21 POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Off to find some Angostura
