Fiesta Bowl Open Thread

I am just going to go ahead and throw this one up here now since it is now 37-35 Wisky in the Rose Bowl and nobody in that game is playing all that hard on defense. I have the audio at least, so I can hear everything that is going on. 

We've got Stanford (11-1) versus Oklahome State (11-1). If there was a game that almost should be the MNC but isn't, this one is probably the one if only because it is NOT a rematch. That would probably be the only reason though. 

In all honesty, I do think Oklahoma State was hosed during bowl selections, but there's nothing to be done about it now - I went OSU (NTOSU) in this one. I like Luck, I think his draft stock is pretty high, but Gundy has a point to prove, and he is over 40 and a man, damnit.

I don't understand why they didn't go for a touchdown. They had time outs and 20 seconds. Conservative ball often bites teams in the butt.

One thing I have learned during this bowl season is that FG kickers cannot be trusted.

but OSU's short-yardage game hasn't been good tonight and this is an all-American kicker kicking a glorified extra point.

Completely different situation from Richt, who was putting a mediocre kicker at the edge of his range.

Stanford's decision was in between. The guy hadn't missed a kick of that distance all year until the last game of the season; now he's missed three in a row.
