NCAAF Recap and Perspectives: Monday, 1-1 (click post for audio)

Bowl Update (it was a very bad day for Tigers):

  • When push came to shove in the Rose Bowl, it was just better to have GA’s powerful running game than Mayfield on the playing field. #Bulldogs #Sooners
  • Tigers are toast against Milton and the Knights in the Peach Bowl. Let’s give some very major credit to Scott Frost and the amazing coaching job he has done with this team. #Knights #Tigers
  • Another chink in the armor of the SEC as LSU runs outta juice in the Citrus Bowl. #FightingIrish #Tigers
  • Gamecocks lock up a rare bowl beating of the Big 10 in the Outback, as offensive execution remains a major honey-do item on the Mich grocery list. #Wolverine #Gamecocks
  • Nowhere for Dabo’s dudes to go in the Sugar Bowl, as Bama’s defense (and offense) is a real Payne. #CrimsonTide #Tigers

Bowl Update:

  • Miami exposed — gets badly burned at home by the Badgers, when it forgets both the sun block and that noxious turnover chain.  Poor babies. #Cardinals #Badgers
  • This was not the way Lamar wanted to go out, as he was clearly a player playing 2nd fiddle to QB Thompson in the Taxslayer. #Cardinals #Bulldogs
  • Iowa St. comes up all smiley, holding on for dear life in the Liberty Bowl, when Ferguson overthrew Mayhew. #Cyclones #Tigers
  • PSU’s two big guns erupt with a dog whistle that’s just enough to disrupt the Huskies. Another big win for the no respect Big 10. #Huskies #NittanyLions

Bowl Update:

  • Barrett helps OSU bear down the Bucks remind the world why they deserved to be in the BCS in the first place, scooting past SC with very little drama. #Buckeyes #Trojans
  • Aggie jubilation in New Mexico vs. Aggie aggravation in Utah after Arizona Bowl ends in OT. #Aggies #Aggies
  • It may not be a surprise to everyone, but this score will sure make people wake up and take notice of Wake’s football prowess; great win for the ACC in the Belk Bowl. #DemonDeacons #Aggies
  • Wolfpack get up on their Hines quarters a scare the piss outta the wimpy Sun Devils; more than a nice game by Nyheim. #Wolfpack #SunDevils
  • Music City miracle No. 2, as NW boasts a 10-win season…. #Wildcats #Wildcats

Bowl Update:

  • In the Military Bowl, Navy sticks to the ground and tells UVA to “SHIP OUT”!
  • Hokies choke away a few golden scoring opportunities, and that was all it took for OK St. to overpower them. In the process, Mason Rudolph ends his career as the most decorated QB to test the waters at Stillwater, and with the Camping World crown in hand, he stands to go rather high in the upcoming NFL draft. #Hokies #Cowboys
  • TCU makes Texans proud by leapfrogging over the Cardinal to victory in the Alamo Bowl. #HornedFrogs #Cardinal

Bowl Update:

  • FSU couldn’t help itself and doesn’t miss an opportunity grab a wee bit of glory by walking off with the title of Independence Bowl champion. #GoldenEagles #Seminoles
  • Usually restrained and reserved Iowa surprises BC with an inspired 2nd half comeback in the Pinstripe Bowl, after BC’s kicker let’s loose with a real wounded duck miss before halftime and thanks to some excellent waddling by Wadley. #Hawkeyes #Eagles
  • Big 10 doormat Purdue hopes this incomprehensible victory in the Foster Farms Bowl can somehow foster some much needed national respect for its long suffering football program.  Don’t count on it, but congratulations. #Boilermakers #Wildcats

Oh to be young again, …

… and to have a short, compact menu of bowl games to choose from, which, collectively, were a relative pleasure to digest over the holidays compared to the current group of ugly, corporate-owned ducklings. Bring me back to 1976:

NCAAF Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives:

  • After a rousing start, Auburn’s Tigers looked tranquilized, if not lifeless, while the Bulldogs prove once again that it pays to retaliate in the BCS ranking game. Looks like somebody in orange and blue had the Tiger poop beaten out of them tonight.  What do you think, Paul Finebaum?  #Tigers #Bulldogs
  • Another near miss for the Wis, which was predictably empty in terms of razzle dazzle, not to mention productivity on the ground.  And a big thumbs up to JT, who didn’t have to risk further damage to his surgically repaired knee, but played because he has a lot of heart … and cares.  This attitude is a precious commodity in today’s college football, and more generally, in life.  #Badgers #Buckeyes
  • Knights finally say goodnight to the Tigers in a wild AAC title game, and quite possibly says hello to a New Years Day bowl game. #Tigers #Knights
  • Clemson proves what most of us really knew all along … arguing that Miami was worthy of a BCS berth was nothing more than a South Beach reach. #Tigers #Hurricanes
  • Sooners are jumping for joy after flogging the Frogs. Mayfield continues to make his detractors pay with 4 more additions to his TD hoard. #HornedFrogs #Sooners

NCAAF Top 25 Update:

  • The Pac-12 gets stiffed again when it comes to the BSC … but isn’t it their own fault to a large degree. By all accounts this was a terrific game, but for whatever reason, it was played in this ridiculously bad, Friday night time slot. People are too busy wrapping up a hectic work week and catching up after Thanksgiving to take notice of this, and the public’s real attention on college football conference title games will be focused tomorrow. Duh? #Trojans #Cardinal

NCAAF Top 25 Update:

  • In what seems like an annual crime, the Badgers take out the Golden Gophers Lizzie Borden style, with 31 whacks from Paul Bunyan’s battle axe. #Badgers #GoldenGophers
  • Malzahn outsmarts L’il Nicky with a perfect defensive plan, including double/triple coverage to get rid of the threat from Ridley and the using shadows to keep QB Hurts running to daylight. On to SEC title game for Auburn, and as for Bama, they could well be on the outside looking in. #CrimsonTide #Tigers
  • Stanford’s standing taller, while ND is looking smaller. #FightingIrish #Stanford
  • MSU runs away from, and through, the Scarlet Knights at Piscataway. #Spartans #ScarletKnights
  • Mountaineers couldn’t mount much resistance in this lopsided affair… what with no Grier to fill the air. #Sooners #Mountaineers
  • With Heisman still on its QB’s brain … but with nothing else really to gain… OK St. still could not be disturbed as it easily kicked Kansas to the curb. #Cowboys #Jayhawks
  • Clemson goes into South Carolina’s Palmetto ghetto and settles a score. #Tigers #Gamecocks
  • Georgia warms up for its 2nd crack at Auburn by undressing the Yellow Jackets. #Bulldogs #YellowJackets
  • Penn St. pins a most embarrassing loss on the Twerps. #NittanyLions #Terrapins
  • Buckeyes wonder whether foul play on the sidelines sidelined Barrett, but also now know that asking Haskins to pick up the slack was by no means out of the question. As concerns Harbaugh, he and his Wolverines continue to look forlorn with O’Korn. #Wolverines #Buckeyes

NCAAF Top 25 Update:

  • Miami’s charmed life finally catches up with them in Pittsburgh, turnover chain and all, as the Panthers throw a wicked curve ball into their BCS playoff picture in the form of freshman QB Pickett. #Panthers #Hurricanes
  • Bulls try to pull the wool over their Florida brethren, but in the end aren’t up to the task and fail to unmask the undefeated Knights. #Bulls #Knights
  • In what used to be a premium, rivalry week match up, the Frogs flog the Bears for all they’re worth in Ft. Worth. #Bears #HornedFrogs

NCAAF Top 25 Update:

  • Special teams pose a special problem today for OK State and UCLA. #Wildcats #Cowboys #Trojans #Bruins
  • Was there even a sighting of any Illini fighting today in Columbus? Doubtful… #Buckeyes #Illini
  • After a promising start, loads of woe for Louisiana Monroe and cupcake vindication for Auburn. #Warhawks #Tigers
  • Fighting Irish land more than a few punches to the midsections of the Midshipmen. #Midshipmen #Fighting Irish
  • Gophers go 0-fer the entire game in embarrassing loss ast Evanston. #Wildcats #Gophers
  • After last week’s unpleasantries, Senior Day at Athens was a play station festival for Nick and Sony. #Wildcats #Bulldogs
  • Baker may have gone a bit over the line, but let’s face it … the Jayhawks had no business talking the talk when they couldn’t walk the walk. #Sooners #Jayhawks
  • Hurricanes continue to lead a charmed life in terms of opportune turnovers, but let’s give them their due for maintaining their composure when storm clouds were gathering at Miami Gardens. #Hurricanes #Cavaliers
  • This game was more like 1 yard and a cloud of dust for the stodgy Wolverines, who continue to sputter against real defenses. #Badgers #Wolverines
  • Another unsightly massacre of The Citadel by the Tigers. #Tigers #Bulldogs
  • Mercy killing time for Mercer. #CrimsonTide #Bears
