Hope for Penn State
Well Big Ten fans, the conference has a new chance for a win. Florida has four - count 'em, four - starters out on injuries for the game v. Penn State: a cornerback, one offensive tackle and both defensive tackles. I don't think any team can hold up under that attrition. The late nod goes to Penn State.
I didn't get a chance to comment on this earlier, but Boise State was totally screwed by the bowl organizers. They lost one game on a missed field goal to a talented Nevada team on the road and they end up playing in the Afterthought (Las Vegas) Bowl v. Utah. (The PAC-10 couldn't fill their bowl slot.) This coming a year after the Broncos were matched up with TCU in the Children's Table Bowl. Methinks the big institutions really, really do not want to play these guys. I'm not a fan of the smurfs, but I feel bad for them.
Iowa v. Missouri Tonight
Big 12 fans will enjoy seeing Missouri stomp Iowa in tonight's Insight Bowl. (I'm still trying to figure out why Nebraska is going to the Big 10 and Missouri is staying behind. Maybe its just a matter of time.)
