College Bowl Games -- who do you care about?

Saturday starts the bowl season. While many are wrapped up in the NFL and its fantasy stuff, some of us are more die-hard college followers. Who will you be tuning into this year? Any particular way you hope to see things turn out?

I'll be attending the Citrus Bowl (Cap1 Bowl) to see my home team, PSU, play an [on paper] evenly-matched game against LSU.

In the BCS, I'd like to see TCU take out Boise, Oregon beat the smack out of Ohio State (I always like to see OSU lose), Cinci whoop Florida (not sure how it'll work without Kelly), and see the Tide roll the longhorns (our first away game is at Alabama next Fall).

Even though I'm an SEC school guy (South Carolina), I'm rooting for Texas as well. Neither Alabama nor Saban are due for a(nother) national championship, IMHO.

My team ended up with the pizza bowl, but hopefully it turns out good.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

College football fans...

I, too, am a huge college football fan. As a loyal Longhorn supporter, I am looking for the Tide to go to an ebb rather then a flood!

Seriously though, I'll watch all the bowls that I get a chance to including those lesser bowl games. I'd much rather watch college than pro though in my late 20's to early 30's I thought that the pro game was where it was at. As I got older I realized that the college game is the better of the two. Though, as we move closer to a college playoff system I foresee it going the way of the pro game.

Texas Fight!

Sorry...I don't care about any of them. College football isn't all that big up here. Closest "big" football school is West Point/Army...and well, they pretty much suck.

Hot Stove baseball is a bigger topic here right now.
