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!!!

Well, yeah.  They kinda did.  God must smile on us Orange and Blue teams (well, except the Auburn Plains War Tiger-Eagle Men).

Hey durfish- When you were driving through the mountains and looking at the sunset, did you happen to notice how the mountains seem to look blue in contrast?

Thanks for this comment:

Satan is the coach, his comparison to losing a fb game to Pearl Harbor makes him a WHACK JOB!  How many people lost their lives in the FB loss. 
As a Navy Senior Chief, it strikes home.  All things in perspective.

Thanks, TMM!  I'm really surprised we didn't get any entries for LSU as well.  There's always next year.

Don't apologize.  With quotes like this...

They’re enough to make a decorator and his stylist cry. Clashing shades of green: from monkey barf chartreuse to rotting corpse olive. And those irradiated nuclear waste neon helmets! They give me migraines and make my head implode. And what’s with the tire treads on their shoulders? Did their coach throw them under a bus??
you can post as many times as you like!
