Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling: The college football bowl games have been announced. Some goof over at Fox Sports breaks down the five BCS bowl games.

If there were just 2 more bowl games, Bowling Green, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Layfayette, and San Jose State could have been rewarded for their 6-6 seasons. Did I miss any eligible teams that got froze out?

I'm surprised to see Boise State in such a crappy bowl game. Oklahoma State v. Oregon? Why on earth wouldn't they have Boise State playing Oklahoma State? That would be a good game. Oh well, at least NC State got themselves into a bowl game.

Mich, #9 Boise State gets to play #11 TCU. #13 Oklahoma State plays #17 Oregon. The team getting the shaft is Texas Tech. An 11-1 7th ranked Texas Tech plays #25 Ole Miss! Why not Boise St. and Texas Tech? Now that would be a good game.

Bill: I did a play on an old Camper van Beethoven song.

Canstusdis: HA! I did not realize that TCU was ranked so high. Thanks for pointing that out.

Alabama vs. Utah is a lose/lose proposition for Bama fans.

Alabama wins: "Well, it was UTAH, after all. Big deal." Alabama loses: "You guys suck! Beat by UTAH."

Kinda like last year's Georgia vs. Hawai'i game.

And yeah, Texas Tech got screwed.

Oops. Yeah, I commented before reading the second link. Which says EXACTLY what my first comment says.

But I'm now convinced that I'm qualified to be an analyst for Fox Sports.

In fairness, a concussed chimp is probably qualified to work for any Fox network.

Thanks, Drood. Now I remember why I quit coming here. I happen to watch Fox News and that makes me an undesirable, right?

Calm down everyone. Lets be fair and balanced here.

Quite a reaction. Wow. Well I choose to be outraged on behalf of Keifer Southerland.
