Orange Bowl open thread

Submitted by M-Wolverine on January 5th, 2010 at 5:15 PM

You know, when the game was announced, I was kinda "meh". But now that I'm home and ready to watch it, I'm kinda getting excited. The contrasting styles intrigue me, another Big Ten team, to see how they'll do, and the celebration that is the LAST BCS bowl game on FOX. Yay!

And it can't be worth than last night's game, can it?

If nothing else maybe we'll get more Taco Bell commercials...
(Though Iowa and GT will have a hard time topping TCU's cheer team).

Nesbitt looks a bit hesitant. He needs to make his decision and hit he hole or pitch the ball to someone that is actually going to cut upfield.

Oh Ricky Stanzi, never change.

I'm conflicted here. On one hand, the gf is an Iowa grad. On the other hand, I can't root against GT, they're engineers at heart, and run the offense I used in HS.

Anyone imagine hearing that GT recovered two Iowa turnovers, including a TAINT, in the 1st Q and the score would be 14-7 Iowa? Crazy.

...reminds me of watching our spread (or frankly, Oregon Friday). This offense has been tearing everybody up...why does it look so awful now?

In this case, Iowa defense.

I've seen a lot of football.. and very few times have I seen an OL come back after being manhandled like that for almost half a game.. I don't think they've even gotten a 1st down yet.

Stranger things have happened.. but I think that if Stanzi doesn't blow it.. Iowa's got this easily..
