  • Hmmm, Wazzu in the Cheez It Bowl? In Phoenix? I may actually be in the area then. Might have to go . . . especially if they're giving away Cheez-It merch!

    Would love to go back to Pasadena, so many great memories there and my niece lives there and I haven't got a chance to see her first baby. The opportunity to watch the Rose parade and actually attend a bowl game on New Year's Day. And, you can cross the street diagonally!

    The whole Alabama - Georgia - Clemson thing is so predictable and while it may end up being accurate, we are so early into the season that just about anything can happen.

  • Oklahoma escaped this week with Army but I'm thinking the presumption is they end the season undefeated while Ohio State slips up somewhere.

    I personally don't think the SEC gets two teams in this year, but maybe they will. But I think Bama and UGA play in the SEC title game as a defacto playoff game. I don't see the committee putting the loser of that game into the playoffs.

    I have no evidence to argue, but my hope is Minshew will fare better against the Dawgs than Falk.

  • Don't get me wrong, I'm from the East side of the state so I hope so too, just suspect it will go the way most big school versus smaller school interstate matchups go.

    If any team is built to beat the Cougs this year it's the Huskies with their DB's, but I wouldn't bet against Minshew, the kid has serious heart.

    Don't think i'd tune in for a single one of those games, accept of course the Oregon game. Utah vs Texas maybe, but Utah just lost their QB for the season (broken collar bone) so I think they're done.

  • That's largely true with most bowl games though. Ohio State seems to be on the downward slide, which could make for a fun game with Wazzu.

  • What is the prestige ranking of bowls that the PAC-12 usually plays in? Obviously the Rose is #1, but where would the second team go? I kind of thought it was the Holiday Bowl, but in one bowl projection I see Oregon going they don't seem like the #2 team in the Conference. Wazzu would seem to me, to be the #2 team in the conference and they seem to most often be slated for the Alamo bowl. Is the Alamo Bowl really the consolation to the Rose? I see Utah (in one projection) tied to the Redbox Bowl, in Santa Clara.

    From all that, and based on the projected opponents, it definitely sounds like the Alamo Bowl is the second most prestigious. It just doesn't seem like it should be.

    Here are the latest projections from CBS that I was looking at.

  • One problem I have with the whole New Year's Six thing is the conference bowl tie-ins. Texas will go to the Sugar Bowl even though they are ranked 15th just because they are the highest non-playoff Big12 team. That needs to change. After the playoffs are set they should just take the best teams. You can loosely try to keep conference-bowl alignments but they shouldn't force it. Give us match-ups and good games.

  • Wazzu is in the Alamo Bowl but against Iowa State. Much less exciting than a matchup with West Virginia.
