I see i missed everything today
The ridiculously named San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl is on now. SDSU up early 3-0 over BYU.
Max Wittek has looked horrible in the Bowl Game against a 6-7 GTech team.
USC might have to go all in on Max Browne. If he doesn't live up to his ranking, USC might be screwed even with all those talented WRs.
USC has been a complete embarrassment in this bowl game. Kiffin and the team didn't even show up for the bowl dinner.
What a sleazeball.
Is MSU or USC the bigger disappointment this year? I think it's USC.

USC by far. Preseason #1, Heisman favorite, terrible season.
I don't know if anyone watched Chick-Fil-A Bowl Game between #8LSU and #14Clemson game but Les Miles and/or LSU's OC screwed their players.
Also, Tajh Boyd's pass on 4th and 16 and sliding catch by DeAndre Hopkins was perfect. One of the most clutch plays I've ever seen.

Yeap throwing the ball instead of running it on 2nd down & 2 to go. Retarded imo, but what do I know.
Miss State looks like hell right now early against NW
Big Ten bowl season is over, the results:
Minnesota - narrowly lost to Texas Tech, could easily have won
MSU - beat TCU by a very slim margin
Northwestern - beat Mississippi State soundly
Purdue - destroyed by Oklahoma St.
Michigan - lost a heartbreaker to South Carolina
Nebraska - hang with Georgia for 3 quarters but fell apart in the 4th
Wisconsin - late interception sealed the loss in an even game
In spite of the fact that all but one Big Ten team had a chance to win their game and we easily could have flipped 2 or 3 of those results, the Big Ten went 2-5 in bowls. 1-2 vs. the SEC, 0-1 vs the Pac, 1-2 vs the Big 12. The Big Ten has one Rose Bowl win in 13 years. The negative PR will continue.
Not worked up about B1G reputation or anything. I root for the conference mildly but at the end of the day I'm a fan of one team and if that team is winning then that's all that matters. There's no real difference in how good each conference is anyway. Based on today's results, not seeing the whole SEC supremacy thing.
It's not about being a fan of the conference, it's abut the fact that the Big Ten reputation matters in terms of determining our success as far as recruiting (what, you don't think the SEC's recruiting benefits from its reputation?) and rankings, which ultimately affect our chances to play for championships, are concerned.
Programs like Arkansas or Auburn, well below us in the pecking order of college football, know thanks to the SEC reputation that a good year in-conference nearly automatically means a top 10 ranking and possible BCS bid and a conference championship nearly automatically a chance at the national title.
Sparty actually roots AGAINST the B10 .... EL is awash with intelligence (joking):
NIU just got screwed on a no call PI in the end zone. Piss poor referees.
MSU is one of the weirdest fanbases I know of in all of sports. It's like Philly fans mixed with Juggalos (Insane Clown Posse fans for those not familiar) mixed with underground conspiracy theorists.
Now there are normal Spartans fans obviously, well-adjusted people, good neighbors and parents, I know them from shared Red Wings, Tigers and Lions fandom. But most of those people aren't *primarily* MSU fans, it's the MSU hardcore nutters that you find on boards like RCMB that are probably the most deranged fanbase in America.
All of this is true. Some recruits buy into the whole conference fallacy. I'm happy if we're winning and I'm mad as hell if we're not. Like much of college football, it's too silly to worry much about. I guess the playoff format coming should help with the chances of playing for a championship.
Way too many Sparty fans are obsessed with Michigan. I'll just leave it at that.
Do people here seriously have "Big Ten pride"? I would never root for Ohio or Sparty to win a game...
I have Big Ten pride for everybody except Sparty and Buckeyes. I want the rest of the conference to win though.
I could not care less about what the rest of the conference does. Conference pride is a crock
I have B1G pride and always cheer for the other B1G schools during the bowl season. It only makes Michigan look better when the rest of the B1G wins.
On another note Go Huskies. I grew uo 30 minutes from Dekalb and think it'd bs great to see them win.
