Cannot think of a single bowl game in the BCS that should be close. Big ten will get killed without TOSU and Penn State in the mix. ND should be overwelhmed although I am pulling for them and anybody that plays the SEC. The rest of the BCS is a joke.
Louisville? North Illinois? Give me a break.
Best thing I can do on January is count the days for the begining of the real 2013 season when the D-1 team with the longest winning streak takes the field!

I was hoping for Oregon Florida, which would've been really fun. My question is why does everyone think ND will get blowout? ND has certainly played down to a few teams this year (Pitt), but they've also beat OU on the road and Stanford at home.
Bama didn't look unbeatable in the SEC championship game. I think ND surprises people and the game will at least be competitive.
The Rose Bowl should be a lot closer than people think unless Bielema gets pass happy.
Why would anyone think Alabama is unbeatable when they have lost? At home. And were down 20-0 in the 1st quarter...ND will win
No doubt ND will be in this game, I'm taking ND and the 8.5 points. Plus they got the luck if the Irish and touchdown Jesus in their corner.
Stanford is favored by 6.5. I'll take Wisconsin and the points... Third times the charm for badgers.
Michigan will have a long day against the gamecocks D line. Clowney will get to know Gardner and Robinson very well by the end of that game.
Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, and LSU vs. Clemson in the Chik a fila bowl, two of the best bowls out there, not named the BCS title game or the Fiesta Bowl with K State vs. Oregon.
You should leave out the Stanford reference, if you watched that game then you should know Stanford won but got cheated by the refereeing.
The playoffs can't get here soon enough.
That's not going to stop the complaining.
The BCS should try and get games that people will be excited to watch. I would love to see Oregon vs. Florida, I think FSU versus Kansas State would great - Let Northern Illinois play Louisville in a BCS bowl at least it would be a good game.
I will leave in the Stanford game because if you watched the game you would know that touchdown was to TIE the game. I don't know how you can guarantee Stanford wins the in the second OT.
ND fans view that call the same way OSU fans view the Miami call in '02. They honestly believe it was the right call, but no other fan base will ever agree.
At least the Big East can't have one more auto-bid and they're awfulness can't allow an auto-bid to a top 16 non-BCS school.
Except that the OSU v Miami call has been disected by people in the trade and it was deemed the correct call. Referee Magazine (yes its a real magazine given to licensed referees) named it one of the best calls of the year that year
ND vs. Bama and Wisconsin and Stanford I think will be much closer than people expect. Stanford and Wisconsin matchup well I think across the board. And ND has a Defense that I think can steimy Bamas O. The question is can ND create enough space to beat Bamas D key watch what A&M did . These are not done deal games by any stretch.

Oregon vs K State is a good one, don't count out the Huskers and the Badgers in their matchups...... Does anyone know if Denard will be 100% for their bowl game?
Y'all enjoy. I'm done with the 2012 season, which ended around 3:30 EST in Columbus, Ohio about a week ago. This "bowl season" will be a great time to finally clean out my garage.....
as much as i HATE nd I agree with you. I think this game is going to be very close. I find it funny that after 12 games people still think nd isn't legit (excuse me while I go throw up now). Their front 7 is impressive and the matchup w Bama's powerful Oline should be a good one as well as the key to winning the game.
Not to mention that when a team hears for 35+ days that they have ZERO chance, that tends to slightly motivate a team.
