(Sorry. I had a "few" beers at lunch while Xmas shopping. I think they're still messing with me. So, these ones that I drink during the Pens game probably aren't going to make my posts any better. lol)

Not for nothing, but this year's bowl season is absolutely wacky.

 

I've missed seven of my top ten picks. And of them, 6 were favorites. Not that I went through picking all favorites, but in many instances, they seemed like decently solid picks. (I don't really investigate and measure up and all that stat checking stuff, so I guess I can't complain TOO much.)

 

I'm only holding on by a hair. By the end of bowl season, I have a feeling I'll be dwelling near the bottom too.

OK, my biggest concern with this game was OSU's D. If they could shut down Texas because the Big XII doesn't play much Defense, all those numbers the Big XII guys put up against each other and the way Texas Tech got their rear's handed to them...My argument about Tebow vs. the Big XII QB's has been the level of "D" Tebow has played this year.(I think Tebow should have won the Heisman again this year)

The one thing I didn't think of was the way Texas is getting gashed by OSU's offense. Total domination by OSU in the first half but the game is tight. will come down to which coaches make the best adjustments at the half

OK Wes, looks like it is me and you. If we pick the same team I CAN NOT win but if things go just right I can sneak in and take the trophy from you.

Best of luck and may I ( i mean the best man) win.

 

I'm sure you picked Florida. :whistle:

To be honest I haven't looked at those picks since I made them almost a month ago so I can't remember who I picked. :anon:

As a Sooner fan I must say that I'm a bit disappointed. I don't feel terrible over it like I did in past bowl games. They played hard and came up short. I must say that some of the officiating was quite strange throughout the game. The first quarter was just bizarre. The game came down to who could capitalize on opportunities and that turned out to be Florida. Still, I think the game really came down to the last pick thrown by Bradford. He threw a perfect pass and the receiver let a defender steal the ball from him. That was unbelievable and it pretty much ended the game right there.

 

The game was a bit hard for me to watch. There is only so much punishment a fan can take. It didn't make the situation any better with my uncle going ballistic about everything whether there was a reason to be mad or not. I hate watching sports with people like that.

Congrats...........Stoops leads Florida over Oklahoma!! Well done coach you stupid FUCK!!!!!!!I haven't seen such bad play calling since......well since Monday and Vest.

 

Couldn't agreee more!

 

I hate to say it, but there must be a "Youngstown Playbook" that these coaches are using that forms their offenses into absolute crap. Oklahoma pushed Florida all over the field for much of the game, yet, in the end, somehow managed to not score. If Oklahoma had kicked a few field goals, they would have been in position to either already have the game in hand, if not drive for a final field goal to win. (Let alone if they hadn't screwed the pooch and actually punched one in!)

 

All too reminiscent of the Buckeyes' loss Monday night. NO ONE expected a game in the Fiesta Bowl and Tressel's lack of playcalling, not to mention a few horrible calls, let Ohio State be in a position to blow the game with less than half a minute left.

 

I won't discredit Florida's loss. They did what they needed to do to be the National Champs. That said, Oklahoma should be celebrating right now, drinking it up because of happiness, not trying to find all the booze they can too drown their sorrows.

 

Glad I wasted 2 nights this week watching close games that were blown by horrible coaching decisions and a bad play here or there. (It's not like Texas and Florida didn't have their share of bad plays. But they pulled it out because of fewer boneheaded play calls.) Work's gonna be even GREATER tomorrow. :doh:

While I agree that it seemed like Stoops play calling wasn't great, to me it came down to the fact that Oklahoma plays in an offensive conference with no focus on defense, and for the first time this year faced a fast defense that confused them from time to time and a fast defensive line that was able to put some pressure on Bradford so he couldn't stand there and throw the ball anywhere he wanted to. If I learned one thing in these bowl games I've learned that the Big 12 is overrated. You can score a million points a game all year if you face bad defenses but when it comes time when you face a great one then defense will always win that battle IMO. Also if Florida's D held OU to 14 I wonder if OU would of even scored against USC GREAT defense.

 

About the Ohio St/Texas game. First, I was impressed how OSU played hard and proved a whole lot of people wrong that didn't give them a chance in hell to win that game. Second, if they knew how to tackle on that last play they would of won the game bad play calling or not. Third, that was one of the best bowl games I've ever seen.

Wow so I won this league and the NFL pickem league and got 3rd in the college pickem.

I guess I had a decent year then except for barely missing the playoffs in the regular fantasy league.

 

Congrats Wes! That's quite the run! :beerbang:

    • Loving aspects of this. It's like a cassette tape, actually. I quite love most of the first half, but the second side balladry is a bit of a pass for me. The one exception being 'Smoking.' What a cool groove. I wasn't sure I was going to love it from the start, but man it's a cool song.  'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is an absolute belter, and I like the first 8 songs (except 'Time to let it go' and 'Don't go'). Good album with a very nice sound. 
    • This is out and it's very nice. Interesting how far removed it is from a song like 'Midnight in Miami,' but it's still very good. I do enjoy.  Heart Of Gold     -    Beautiful Dangerous 1    .    To The Blue 2    .    Headache 3    .    Patient 4    .    Bright Lights 5    .    There's A Difference Between 6    .    Leave Just Yet 7    .    Something That Lasts Forever 8    .    September Sunburn 9    .    Backseat Daydream 10    .    Hometime 11    .    Bad Habit 12    .    Co-Dependent 13    .    And Something That Never Ends 14    .    Time Spent Driving This'd be my favourite tune off the new album.   
    • These guys have a new album, with some very nice surprises aboard.  Hollywood Undead     -    Hotel Kalifornia 1    .    CHAOS 2    .    World War Me 3    .    Ruin My Life 4    .    Hourglass 5    .    Go To War 6    .    Alone At The Top 7    .    Wild In These Streets 8    .    Dangerous 9    .    Lion Eyes 10    .    Trap God 11    .    Happy When I Die 12    .    Reclaim 13    .    City Of The Dead 14    .    Alright            
    • Very, very safe. To be totally honest, I didn't find a keeper on here, but it's a solid album, all right on the verge of something a bit better. Nice, safe AOR. 
    • You sure? I could be wrong but I thought Ronnie's only contribution to this project, from the start, had been his vocals? Either way, the new album's more of the same. I don't dislike any of it, and I don't furiously love any of it either. It's all pretty nice. 'Riot' is my favourite on the album half because it's a nice ballad but also because I expected it to be some plodding songs about riots but instead it was a trick shot. Nice. 
    • Of Virtue     -    Sinner 1    .    Hypocrite 2    .    Sinner 3    .    Cold Blooded 4    .    Echoes Quick, pretty harsh but a cool EP for those who don't mind a scream or two-    
    • Another one I've mentioned before. Bummed it's only an EP (with two of the same songs on it) but Outsider Heart have released a delicious EP- Outsider Heart     -    Entertainment 1    .    Entertainment 2    .    Anyone But You 3    .    MONSTER 4    .    Crop Circles 5    .    Like The Rest 6    .    Crop Circles (feat. Brody) Sure I posted it before, but I love this song-      
    • Anybody out there loving the new album? So good. Pale Waves     -    Unwanted 1    .    Lies 2    .    Unwanted 3    .    The Hard Way 4    .    Jealousy 5    .    Alone 6    .    Clean 7    .    Without You 8    .    Only Problem 9    .    You're So Vain 10    .    Reasons To Live 11    .    Numb 12    .    Act My Age 13    .    So Sick (Of Missing You)      
    • Yeah, this really surprised me about the album. Weakest songs are the ones with her, but otherwise, I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised with this album. I am not sure I heard the debut and didn't know what to expect with this one, but I really enjoyed it.  'Need A Lil' White Lie' is such a killer opener. Elsewhere, I admit it's pretty one-dimensional, but as I've said in the past about things like this, it's a pretty good dimension.  'A Dream To Be Lost In Time' is a bit bland, but otherwise, from track 4 onwards I really enjoy the whole thing. 
    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
