SMU going to the St. Petersburg and Armed Forces Bowls.

Btw, why are some of the logos ginormous?

critesy 09-12-2010 06:51 PM

those are some big ****** pictures

bearsfan_51 09-12-2010 06:57 PM

Yeah I dunno why, I got them all from the same site.

CashmoneyDrew 09-12-2010 07:11 PM

I'll be pleasantly surprised if Tennessee makes a bowl game.

thenewfeature06 09-12-2010 07:23 PM

+rep for doing all of those but damn no respect.. for all I know we could be the best team in the ACC (who knows?) and you got us playing ECU in a bowl game, dear god I hope not.

nrk 09-12-2010 08:23 PM

Those predictions would result in some good games.

The difference between the best team and the 7th best team in the ACC is, as is often the case lately, pretty minimal.

There is no chance Michigan finishes without 3 loses.

Well, I mean there's always a chance, but I tend to agree. I can't see Michigan finishing any better than 9-3, which wouldn't get them to the Rose Bowl. I'd love for you to be right though BF.

Brent 09-14-2010 10:11 PM

I will likely be going to any TAMU bowl game so long as it is within a day's travel (i.e. this state or shreveport), unless it's a BCS bowl, in which case, I am looking to go all out.

bearsfan_51 09-18-2010 04:34 AM

Changed a bit. Didn't know that the Rose Bowl had to take a non-BCS team if it loses one of it's automatic qualifiers.

bearsfan_51 09-19-2010 09:25 AM

Updizzle.

I'm not sure if the Orange Bowl would take TCU or Boise State over a 1 loss Big Ten team at this point, but I'm also not sure if Wisconsin, Iowa, or Michigan will make it through the Big Ten with only one loss. (or in Iowa's case, undefeated)

Ugh, the mere thought of Obi Ezeh facing Marcus Lattimore just made me cringe.

etk 09-19-2010 05:09 PM

FSU winning the ACC. AHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I know you hate the Canes with a passion but that just blew my mind.

RealityCheck 09-19-2010 07:48 PM

I don't have any teams that are winless in a bowl game.

I hate Florida State too.

At this point I think everyone in the ACC sucks. Nobody deserves a top 25 ranking, but I think Florida State at this point, has been the best of the worst.

We are winless now, and you know we won't end the season 0-12.

And we came up really close in both losses.

brat316 09-20-2010 10:07 PM

TEMPLE YEAAAHHhhhh. Kind of lame we have to play #8 Big Ten team but its cool. We'll beat them.

If North Carolina goes 5-5 the rest of the season, they are bowl ineligible. That's certainly not out of the question.

I feel confident in saying, Carolina could win the next 10 games and not play in a bowl.

bearsfan_51 09-26-2010 10:45 AM

Bizumped.

The biggest changes were as follows:

-Boise State is in the national championship game. Only Nevada really seems to pose much of a serious threat at this point, whereas Ohio State could realistically lose to about 3-4 teams in the Big Ten. Obviously, if both teams are undefeated, Ohio State would go (or Oklahoma, or Oregon, etc.), but I'm becoming increasingly less convinced there will be an undefeated team from a BCS conference.

-Alabama is still in. Even a 1 loss team from the SEC will likely get the nod, given their history.

-Because Boise State is in the title game, I think the rest of the bowl committees will feel more comfortable excluding a team from the Mountain West. In this case, the beneficiary is Stanford, which to this point would deserve it for their on-field play anyway.

-Notre Dame and BYU are both out. I have a hard time imagining Notre Dame finishing the season 5-3 with their schedule. BYU, with almost sure losses to TCU and Utah, would basically need to run the table on the rest of the MWC; certainly not impossible, but they look awful right now.

-North Carolina is back in, having beat a so-so Rutgers team. I know this will cause great joy for many.

-Wisconsin is being punished for being bitches and running the score up on Austin Peay. Naughty naughty....

-Tennessee and Georgia are hanging to bowl bids by the skin of their teeth.
