Orange Bowl open thread

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).

Not all that surprised about the GT defense; UGA and Clemson both ran up and down on them.

On offense, looks like Tech needs to get the ball to the perimeter more quickly. They've run Rocket Toss once, but if they hadn't missed a block by one of the A backs, it would have picked up some big yardage.

the priviledge of broadcasting the BCS games?
Between the atrocious announcing and slipshod camera work, I'm about done.
Especially with the lack of cutaway shots that last night provided.

That FedEx "world's proudest boss" commercial is "The Office" quality funny. Makes me laugh everytime he knocks on the closet to say "good job everybody."

Iowas had first shot 42 yards away. Since they didn't make it, GT had one, perhaps two plays at 58 yds away. I think the risk/reward of going for it there was in Iowa's favor.
