Watched Minnesota and Syracuse play in the Texas Bowl. Kind of a snoozefest- no wonder there were seats available on StubHub for as low as 73 cents.

Marshall Thundering Herd (the original, not the Colin Cowherd groupies) pulls off a superb win over Maryland, with an outstanding performance by QB Rakeem Cato!

And major congrats to Colorado St for a heckuva win in scintillating fashion.

As well even to USC for evidence that they are coming out form under their recent cloud.

Re: College Football 2013

Nothing like a full slate of bowl games to take the edge off a New Year's hangover.

Let's see...

The Capital One Bowl: South Carolina and Wisconsin. The Badgers looked good early, but the Old Ball Coach has got it dialed in down there in South Carolina. Shaw accounts for 5 touchdowns: 3 passing, 1 rushing, and 1 receiving. We can call that a rich, full day.

The Rose Bowl: Stanford goes up quickly 10-0, and then Sparty comes back to lay the smackdown. Big 10 is not totally useless after all!

The Fiesta Bowl: CFU makes some people in Vegas very rich indeed. Baylor gave it a good effort, but hardly anyone gave CFU a chance. A wild, fun game.

A good day of college football!

In addition to Sparty, we had Nebraska upsetting Georgia. Plus Iowa pushing LSU hard in a offense-less game. Guess that Big 10 looks REALLY weak, doesn't it?

Big Ten were never weak. I'm a MSU alumnus (c/o '90) and I'm so proud of my Spartans.

The last time they were in the Rose Bowl, I was 20 in my junior year at MSU in 1988.

So Sweet.

Re: College Football 2013

It'll be hard to top either the Peach Bowl (yeah, it has a different name now, but it'll always be the Peach Bowl to me) or the Fiesta Bowl for sheer excitement. I hate that Duke lost, but they put up as good a fight as I've seen from them all year. Maybe they'll be back in the ACC title game sooner than we think! As for Central Florida, I love it when the underdog proves all the doubters wrong. Speaking of which, can Michigan State finally be given the respect they deserve? They couldn't have closed out their season in a more impressive manner.

My hope is that Chik-Fil-A either renames it back to the Peach Bowl, or the next sponsor does. Travesty, you can't mess with tradition like that. I feel the same about the Tangerine/Citrus Bowl.

What's the PAC-12 record in those conditions?

Re: College Football 2013

Well, I know USC beat the Big Ten champs 4 times since 2003...



PAC 12 won six bowl games this year alone. I looked for a comparable stat, but couldn't find one easily. The Big Ten one came from an article today.

I don't think there's much debate that the Big Ten has been a disappointment in big games, is there?

Tennessee may not have gone bowling, but watching Alabama go down in flames when everybody assumed a walkover was a pretty nice substitute. I do believe they're on a losing streak now.

It was also a nice coming out party for OU QB Trevor Knight. Very impressive under duress all night. Things couldn't have gone better for OU and they might have earned themselves a pretty nice pre-season ranking to start next year.

You did say "January bowl games", though. I went through the conferences bowl records team-by-team for the past 4 years, and other than Stanford and Oregon, there hasn't been much for January bowls. Even Oregon has been somewhat mixed. Plus right before that 4 year time, they lost the Rose Bowl to Ohio St.

There's no doubt the Big 10 has not been up to earlier standards, and has weakened over the last several years. The question is by how much. This year I was also one who lamented how weak they were, but the post-season performance has been much better than advertised, certainly not down to the level of derision the conference has been suffering.

Re: College Football 2013

I've never been much of a "conference" fan. I'm a Hokie fan but I don't really care much about conference arguments. The only thing I have an issue with is the attitude of most SEC fans. I have no problem ackowledging that they are the best conference in college football but it's gotten to the point now where SEC fans act like other schools couldn't even share the field with the SEC.
