    UT and TCU are playing their respective bowl games tonight and try to make it 6-0 for the original Southwest Conference (SWC). All the SWC teams except the UH Coogs are in a bowl game.

    back from the Armed Services bowl game in Fort Worth

    Owls looked strong. We could have had a 10-3 season if we didn't lose our QB earlier in the year.

    A nice 5 game winning streak to close the year for Rice

    Once again Mike Riley shows he's a complete idiot when it comes to managing timeouts. There was NO reason to not call a timeout before the clock expired at the half. This kind of mismanagement cost them the game against Washington earlier in the year.

    He thought he had a first but yeah, still had a timeout to use.

    I don't buy it. The way Oregon State's offense hurried up to the line to try and spike the ball proved they suspected it wasn't a first down.

    Long story short: Oregon State should have finished the year 11-1. They had no chance against Oregon but should have beaten UW and Stanford.

    Riley's decision to stick with Vaz has just proved to be costly.

    A FG contest now? :p

    A minute left, can TCU win it? (Down 1)

    Nope. No luck.

    I fell asleep just after halftime of the TCU/Michigan State game last night. Between it being a late game and the fact that those teams were setting offensive football back 30 years, I just couldn't hang.

    I just saw the highlights. Les Miles is an idiot. His dumb play-calling cost LSU 2 games: Tonight and against Alabama.

    At some point, top recruits should figure out he's not a bright bulb.

    Just flipped over to it, ouch.

    Good one so far between Nebraska and Georgia. I'm a Huskers fan but really expected Georgia to destroy them.

    I watched about 5 seconds of it. Call me old school, but a 6-6 team in a bowl game doesn't deserve much sympathy.

    Fortunately, the other two on right now are good.

    Watching Lou Holtz and Mark May argue about the Rose Bowl makes me smh even more than normal. Slapstick.
