Regarding all bowl games----interesting to see how many players from different teams get suspended between the end of the season and the bowl games.

Happens every year, I doubt this year will be any different.

No, I think you were just looking for a reason to get defensive about your team and their conference. I simply stated the PAC10 was not as weak as people thought, and you CHOSE to interpret it in a negative way. Not my problem.

I think those pissing matches are more appropriate in foxsports forums.

To think; the Rose Bowl will feature a team that Purdue pretty much dominated; and another team that we gave away the game to them.

Ahhh, BOILER UP!!
Well, I now realize why so many of your Big 10 foes call you "Purdon't"

Dominated is such a strong word, outplayed yes, dominated no. Turnovers are a part of the game. Heck, we had 4 times as many penalites, including what, 2 personal fouls on one of your drives. It's all apart of the game. Besides, just be glad you got us early in the season when we were in meltdown-turmoil mode, because ain't no way you'd stay within 20 points now.

I hear what you are saying. I'm not defensive, just replying to a comment I felt was rather enigmatic. I disagree that the Pac-10 has been looked at as weak this year. They have consistently had 4-5 teams ranked in the Top 25, so the media has looked quite favorable on them this year (better then years past). Being a "defensive" Pac-10 fan, I'm pleased the way our conference played out and I believe our teams after a tough conference schedule will show well during bowl season.

Wait, you dominated OSU, huh? I read it wrong. You did outplay us though.

The best scenario is if they would both lose. No offense to you CANES (you are a GOOD egg), but I cannot stand the SEC. I've grown tired of all the "SEC is the only conference" crap.

I will be rooting for WHOMEVER plays either team in the National Championship. I'm a Sooner fan and I will be rooting for the Texas Longhorns for crying out loud. And BTW, I KNOW the Sooners SUCK and have sucked for the last 7 years. Losing title games like they have for 7 years is embarrassing, LOL. Bob Stoops can take his CLOWN GAME and go to Notre Dame and make them a laughing stock in title games for all I care. I'd rather the Sooners be known as fighters rather than a whimpish team that gets to title games and chokes horribly year after year. And I'm serious. "Chokelahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plains!"

The best scenario would be Texas losing to Nebraska and TCU going to the title game and winning against the SEC. TCU is a FINE team that deserves to play for the title game.

I'm Sorry. Seriously, that's the way I feel. And the media's love fest with Tebow needs to end for one. The SEC is almost like the Notre Dame of college football. It's a never-ending love-fest with this conference and about how wonderful they are. PUKE!

Can't worry about it too much. The media really equals ESPN in this case. I have other places to get college football news from and Bleacher Report is fun fan made site that has a wide variety of opinion.

I feel your pain on the SEC love fest, my team Virginia is in the ACC we get much worse press than you guys in the Big 12 (south anyways).

For tommorows game, I say Florida by a hair. Will probably be close and down to wire type of game.
