    A major surprise last night as South Florida trounced Syracuse 45-0 in the Boca Raton Bowl.

    With the transitory nature of rosters now, no outcome surprises me...

    Aggies have to be the most snake bit team in history when it comes to QB. Down to 3rd string QB for the bowl and he's played pretty well since he was pressed into action. Goes down on the 1st play of the game, probably a broken arm. Now they are with a true freshman 4th string kid.

    USC's backup or 34d string, I don't know which he was during the season, Miller Moss is having a coming out sort of game. He's thrown for 6 TD's and his passes are tight spirals. I've seen it reported that Lincoln Riley has been "negotiating' with Kansas States Will Howard to cme in next season through the Portal. But this kid looks ready to be a really good college QB.

    I know it’s early, but it’s like watching different teams. We played A&M this season but it seemed like I didn’t recognize any of the names. Same with USC.

    I didn't even watch. Found out we lost this morning, and saw the 4th string QB on the stats line, so figured things had gone way south. With all the guys hitting the portal and or sitting out, I probably wouldn't' have known who was playing any better than kp!
    I don't regret severing my "attention" from college football one bit...

    Alamo Bowl should be a good game, rooting for my Buddy Bear Down Rick and his future Big12 Wildcats to take down the as Scott would say...the land thieves. OU Sucks!

    Looked like Arizona was going to run OU out of the building, Jackson Arnold threw 2 picks. Then Arnold got his feet under him and the OU defense started making life miserable for the Kyler Murray clone at Arizona. 14-13 Sooners at the half.

    I'll be surprised if Arizona can hold them in the 2nd half, the Sooners defense is dominating the Arizona OL and Jackson Arnold is playing very well behind much better protection.

    Well I was wrong. After the Sooners scored quickly coming out half I went to bed figuring it was going to be a rout. I wake up to find that Arizona didn't quit like I did and came back and go the big win by scoring 25 straight points and winning 38-24. Their Kyler MUrray clone QB had a great game, while Jackson Arnold the future at QB for the Sooners threw 3 picks. He did show me that he's going to be a very good college QB though once he gets a bit of experience.

    I didn't watch much but apparently the officiating was very questionable. I know the commentary was just plain stupid.

    Cotton Bowl is all defense. Buckeyes are down to a freshman QB, and their defense is dominating the Tigers, result is OSU 3-0 over Mizzou. I won't be shocked if that is the final score.

    Bucks are now down to their 3rd string QB and Cardale Jones will not be walking into the locker room. Defense has been tremendous but fear they are going to get worn down in the 2H.

    Missouri wins the Cotton Bowl 14-3 over the Buckeyes. Disappointing way to end the season for sure.

    Worst offensive performance by an Ohio State team in my memory. Defense eventually got worn down. Did you guys have OL opt outs? It seemed like you had a very good OL this season but not tonight, of course they weren't helped by QB play.

    Good for Mizzou though, this win no doubt meant a lot for them being picked to finish only ahead of Vanderbilt in the SEC East it was a cap to a very good season. Drinkwitz was on the hot seat going into the season, probably gets and extension now.

    Not sure why I did but I did have Mizzou in the Bowl contest.
