Big Ten teams are never destined to win bowl games! It's just one of those facts of life you have to get used to as a Mid-westerner!

That may be true, but that is how most of football works. Super Bowl, B 12 championship, SEC championship, Division II, and on and on. It's still about money! One excuse that use to be made was 'it would extend the season'. Well look when the BCS final game is this year. (refuse to call it the 'championship' game)

GO Spandex!
I actually haven't watched a game all season. I'm saving my leering for the playoffs and Super Bowl.

Obama says he's gonna fix it!

At least if they go with the +1 format we'll have some excitement for the championship game, outside the alums of the two teams, that is.

Yes, they are playing here in Phoenix. Our former VP and several directors are all Buckeyes. If OSU wins, I will hear about it.

Two big bowls left. Who you guys picking? In the Fiesta.... got to go with Texas. BCS Championship game...I'm picking Florida, but not real confident. Game will be played in Florida's back yard, but OK offense is pretty darn good. Should be interesting.

Way I see it too. One Vegas source has Texas -3; Florida -3.5.

I am looking forward to good games.

Unfortunately, the Buckeyes did not win. However, they did not get stomped either. Go, Buckeyes.

I was disappointed. I thought they had it- then bang bang!

As someone without a dog in that fight, that was a fantastic game! Stretching for the 1st on 4th down with 30 seconds to go? Awesome! I love the two minute drill.

Great game. I think poor coaching really cost the Buckeyes.

I only watched the 4th quarter with my Ohio St. shirt on. . But it was a very exciting game.
