    I can't wait for the Sugar Bowl tonight. Georgia was playing the best football in the country when the regular SEC season ended last month, yet they have never gone up against an offense like Hawaii's. I expect a high scoring first half, with each team's defense having trouble (Georiga stopping the pass and Hawaii stopping Georgia's running power).

    Ditto on the Rose Bowl. Has the potential to be a great game, despite the people saying USC will run all over Illinois (which they might!).

    I'm watching as many as I can while cleaning and helping the spouse take down decorations. SEC is 5-1, all started with a 10-3 victory by the Miss State Bulldogs!

    I love bowl mania!

    With all these companies sponsoring Bowls, I always hoped for the Tidy Bowl.

    You wish!

    SEC is 5-2 now thanks to losses by Florida and Arkansas.


    It's wherever Alabama plays.

    Illinois has been looking better (defensively) the last few series. May be a good game yet.

    Illinois needs to throw the ball vertically, not horizontally. If they can just get a couple of 10-15 yard completions they'll be in much better shape. Of course, USC's defense has a lot to say about that. But watching Illinois try to throw screens and run inside is just painful.

    I don't think Illinois ever really felt comfortable in the game. It is basically a home game for USC.

    Hard to feel comfortable when you give up 4 turnovers which lead to 21 points...It was 21-10 at one point..Still very winnable..

    I don't think they were relaxed from the start tho.

    Hawaii's offensive line is playing terrible. Georgia is getting to Brennan with only a 3-man rush.
