    So the BCS Bowl Series is about to be over with Florida vs Oklahoma (GO GATORS!!!!), so far all the schools I rooted for won: USC, VT, Utah, and Texas

    • Thursday, January 1 - Rose Bowl Game presented by Citi: Southern California (11-1, Pac-10 champion) 38, Penn State (11-1, Big Ten champion) 24
    • Thursday, January 1 - FedEx Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech (9-4, ACC champion) 20, Cincinnati (11-2, Big East champion) 7
    • Friday, January 2 - Allstate Sugar Bowl: Utah (12-0, MWC champion, BCS #6) 31, Alabama (12-1, at-large) 17
    • Monday, January 5 - Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Texas (11-1, BCS #3, automatic) 24, Ohio State (10-2, at-large) 21
    • Thursday, January 8 - FedEx BCS National Championship (at the Orange Bowl): Oklahoma (12-1, BCS #1, Big 12 champion) vs. Florida (12-1, BCS #2, SEC champion)

    Why did I root for USC vs Penn State? Because JoePa can take his overrated team back to University Park, they don't deserve to be there everyone they played weren't even that good!

    Why VT? Cause I go there, and because we shouldn't even have made it if it was up to stats, half our team graduated and we were left with basically an all freshmen team and we still managed to claim the ACC and ORANGE BOWL! :p

    Utah: Because Nick Saban and his Bama team thinks that basically SEC teams deserves to be in the BCS Bowls, well prove him wrong Utah did. I hope he had a terrible night! :D

    Texas: OSU don't deserve anything and are overrated just like Penn State, they lost my respect and confidence after getting raped in back to back BSC Championship Games, and not to mention last night! :D

    Florida: Cause I was a gators fan before I came to college and cause they kicked Alabama's butt! ;)

    _________________________________________________________________
    On to the NFL Playoffs, my team the Redskins didn't make it so I'm rooting for Baltimore Ravens now cause they are my second favorite team (tied with Falcons).
    But I hope that Giants don't win again, they are such a pain, Eli just needs to get sacked, that cry baby. :eek:

    wow, a little harsh on the giants. The team I hate the most is the Dallas cowboys, I am so glad they did not make it to the playoffs. This years NFL playoff is kinda funny for me, I like the chargers, colts, vikings, panthers and the ravens. I hope chargers would win it all this year, because LT is on the down side of his career. I am not sure if he will get another chance. I think he deserves a ring.

    Haha yeah Chargers did amazing against Colts over the weekend, but yeah I hate the Cowboys too! Romo and TO does not deserve to make the playoffs. I still think though that the Patriots should have made it, it's so unfair for them, but then again they are a dynasty :eek:

    I love the San Diego Chargers. That's my team 'cause I lived in San Diego for 26 years.

    As far as LT is concerned he's been hurt a lot this season and the end of last. He may not play at all against the Plastics.ooppss...eerr..I mean Steelers..:D Rumors has it that he may have a detatched tendon in his groin. That has to feel below average.

    As far as college is concerned. I'm a USC and UC(Berkley) fan. To me USC is the very best NCAA team in the country.

    Haha your not an OSU fan? Don't you live in Ohio? :p
    The thing I don't like about the BCS thing it's that it always put USC in the Rose Bowl, I guess cause USC has been to the Rose Bowl the most and they can practically call it their bowl game cause they win it every year :eek:

    I like OSU. I grew up in Ohio. I live in Iowa now. I'm not a Haweye fan.

    haha my bad i keep on thinking Cedar Rapids is in Ohio for some reason
    But for the Chargers I don't think LT deserves all the credits Philip Rivers is a big part of the team, I was really surprised when he didn't make the pro-bowl but Eli did :mad:

    The think I like about the Chargers compared to the Vikings is that they don't let LT get all the credit for the touchdown and actually let Darren Sproles get touchdowns in the redzone, for example when the Vikings were playing over the weekend against Eagles the Vikings made RB Chester Taylor do all the work of bringing the ball to the redzone then they took Taylor out and put Adrian Peterson in and got him to get all their touchdowns, even when they didn't score and when the ball got to the redzone Taylor was called out and Peterson was put in. I mean how much of a jerk coach can you be! :mad:

    Soccer? No way. I'm changing the title to American football.

    When you talk about "football", I think most of the people outside the U.S think that you are mentioning about "soccer". I did the same thing when I first saw this thread's title. But it disappointed me when I entered it. So, I think it's better to state clearly "American football" rather then just "football".
