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 just love that the picture I posted is an actual screenshot from the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl a couple years ago. It's like having The Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio have the game be broadcast by a camera pointed at a Vizio TV tuned to the game.

So fantastically awful.

They've got Matt Millen calling the Fiesta Bowl? I'm just grateful that this means he can't call the Sugar Bowl. Still, what's with rewarding incompetence, ESPN?

Sugar Bowl?  I just hope Spielman and Pasch don't call it.  I am so sick of Spielman doing Michigan games. 

And wow the B1G is sucking it again in bowl season.

When an industry is capable of buying advertising in every available commercial break on every network on all programming 7 days a week, something is awry. Everyone stop advertising, lower everyone's rates, and be done with it.
