I'd rather not talk about it because the longer we talk about it the longer it will take for me to get the image of that game and that moron in white wearing #2 talking on the podium out of my head.

I think the opposite of what I predicted happened, or close to it.
I expected Pryor to have the numbers that Massoli had and Massoli to not suck so much.

Now we have to live with buckeye fans all offseason being able to say how much better they were than us. At least the Yankees won the world series, otherwise i would have nothing.

I was thinking Oregon would win handily until I saw the rest of the Pac-10 getting crapped on in other bowls. Combining that with their games against both Boise and Purdue made me change my mind a day or two ago.

I was way off but my OSU buddy predicted 28-17. He's pretty rational for a bucknut (it's all relative). I hit a nerve when I said OSU's QB coach is doing a great job with TP's mechanics after he shot-put a pass out to the flank that OU blew up. He started on, "Oh, and what bowl is Michigan playing in?! Wah, wah, wah." They're so original.

I based my prediction off the assumption that Tressel would play conservative and pound the ball. Instead, they had Pryor throw early and often, and he executed.

I had OSU winning 34-31. Pryor played far better than I thought he would.

The weird thing is I found myself rooting for Ohio State even though I went into it intending to root for Oregon. I guess it comes down to the fact that I really don't like Oregon (hangover effect from two bad UM losses to them...) and I really couldn't root for a team with Blount on it.
