HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

As Dr. Johnny Fever would say, "HERE IT IS, MY BABIES!"  What we've all been looking for.  Our top four seeds (Notre Dame, Miami, USC, and BYU) all drew a bye for the first round, since we had 28 schools "nominated".  As promised, we have some interesting match-ups...a backyard battle between Ohio State and West Virginia, a match-up featuring two teams destined to battle for the ACC Atlantic Division championship (FSU and Maryland), and a pairing of two teams who could potentially meet in this year's BCS National Championship (Penn State and Georgia...keep in mind that this is written before The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party). 

So here's how it works now.  I give you the matchups.  You give me your picks for each pairing.  By pick, I mean the teams you hate more than the other.  I know some of you won't have any particular feelings about some teams, but COME ON!  IT'S FOR FUN!  I'll set a target of closing out voting on Round One by Friday, November 7 (will move that up or back depending on when incoming votes die off)  So talk amongst yourselves and give me your best hate! 

HERE ARE YOUR FINAL RESULTS FOR ROUND ONE!!  ROUND TWO COMING SOON!!!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State   
#6 Michigan vs #27 Clemson  (Like ND has entitlement issues)
#7 Ohio State vs #26 West Virginia   (Same as above but w/out butt ugly helmets, I like silver w/boat flake)
#8 Florida State vs #25 Maryland  (Hate them less than I used to)
#9 Florida vs #24 Nebraska   (Same as above)
#10 Tennessee vs #23 Boston College  (Tennessee fans obnoxious, how can you hate the BC Hail Mary play)
#11 Auburn vs #22 Missouri 

#12 Alabama vs #21 Colorado   (all my Colorado Hate rests squarly on the shoulders of Rick Neu-Weasel)

#13 Oklahoma vs #20 UCLA   (The dark cloud that is Neu-Weasel is now at UCLA)
#14 Georgia vs #19 Penn State   (A Penn St. guy gave me 1 star for my poll post in the BDPITL thread. Hate can be vindictive.)
#15 Utah vs #18 Oregon   (Can't hate My Ducks even if they layed an egg this weekend!)
#16 Washington vs #17 Iowa   (Duck fans are obligated to hate them, Trust me it's in the handbook!)
