Just my opinion



Actually USM fans and players are beyond pissed off... They wanted to play in the Liberty Bowl, but Fedora picked Hawaii for some reason... The fans and players don't want to play half way around the world on Christmas Eve...

Penn St with no coach .....and with arguably the toughest situation a team has ever had to face......in a lower bowl because no one wanted to fool with 'em ....
impossible to determine how they're gonna play....
all the pedo jokes might just piss em off .....and they play the game of their lives....OR......

Houston thinking they are a lock....for the Sugar Bowl...with Keenum going to NYC....and they KNOW...their coach is looking for another job...despite what he tells them...older plays gotta be pissed...with young guys uncertain about their future...

*this one just pick the winner for sure...you think Penn St covers?....play ML....they win or get killed

Been to quite a few Sheraton Hawaii Bowl games the past few years...something to do with the family on Christmas Eve..SOUTHERN MISS vs. Nevada....Down South bruthas flying to the Islands for Christmas...Nevada has played in this Bowl game previously AND meets Hawaii on their WAC schedule every other year...I've seen this scenario with Chris Johnson and ECU beating Boise State...SMU beating Nevada....not saying it happens BUT I think Southern Miss will be pumped to be in warm Hawaii and the tropical weather....my opinion of course....

Vandy's Franklin will maybe be offered a (much) better job

Ole Miss has hired Freeze......according to "sources"

ive already made my moves  on

Stanford , LSU and Clemson  --- Stanford didnt look sharp lately, but they were playing 2nd 3rd stringers and freshmen in key positions due to injuries, they will be rested, and healthy and always take seriously Bowl Games, and as u mentioned best QB on the field , OKST wont be motivated as they get the tostitos fiesta instead of their shot on the bcs and weeden is mistake prone

methinks those are ballsy....but smart plays
* Stanford even better...if Luck does NOT win the Heisman..which it's looking like he won't...
* WVag could get killed
*not gonna touch LSU/Bama myself....(props/halftime wager only)....but that's probably the right side
Bama has MANY players ready for the NFL and big $$....while LSU seems to have guys focused on the BCS title......plus they already beat 'em at their own house...funny some think this gives Bama the edge....as the due theory says Bama will take this one.....huh?....

best of luck.......
