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!!!

SCORES UPDATED AT 6:11PM THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6!!!

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State    (Idaho WINS 23-7)

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Sweet that those loser teams got byes, there are too many haters for those germs er teams that call themselves "fans."

Based on the fans and the lack of expectations,

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State    Really, this team does not belong in Div-1 or Div 1aa.

#6 Michigan vs #27 Clemson   The winningest team in fb history ducks Hawai'i then losses to App State, & Can't buy a BCS bid!  Always love to see the girlieveens lose!

#7 Ohio State vs #26 West Virginia    WOW Tough one!    Why are bucknuts always cracking under pressure? and such whiners?

#8 Florida State vs #25 Maryland   Who wants a turtle as a mascot in fb?   You can make it look mean but it is still a turtle.

#9 Florida vs #24 Nebraska   I like most UF fans but Nebraska has more than a few bad apples at their games.

#10 Tennessee vs #23 Boston College    I don't hate either team, but why creamsicle on the football field?

#11 Auburn vs #22 Missouri    &nb
sp; The tiggers are never as good as advertised.

#12 Alabama vs #21 Colorado    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.  

#13 Oklahoma vs #20 UCLA     &
nbsp; UCLA
gets beat by the teams we all love-to-hate like BYU & ND.

#14 Georgia vs #19 Penn State    Just sick of Paterno and his attacks on the media and anyone else who makes an inquiry.

#15 Utah vs #18 Oregon    Oregon thinks that they will walk all over anyone outside the PAC.  Really, a duck as a mascot!  Quack!

#16 Washington vs #17 Iowa   Huskies are cool, but they went with TYunwillingSham for too long.  How many games do you want to lose?  Bring back Don James & the trips to the Rose Bowl baby!

Good idea durfish!  Here are my hated teams:

Ohio State (they beat up my Spartans)

Florida State

Florida

Tennessee

Auburn

Alabama

Oklahoma

Georgia

Utah

How did LSU not get on here?  They get a honorable mention (or an angry "grrr") from me.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Okay, just for fun, right? Kinda like picking the lesser of two evils.

Idaho - I don't like picking on little people.

Clemson - How dare they turn out lousy on us (Bama).

Ohio State - Why not? Everybody else probably will.

Maryland - MARYland. Football is for men. No women allowed.

Nebraska - Damn Hicks!

Boston College - Damn Yankees!

Missouri - MISSouri. See MARYland above.

Colorado - ROLL TIDE!!! 'Nuff said!

Oklahoma - Nuthin' but queers and steers anyway.

Penn State - Tough one. I like JoePa but I gotta stick with my SEC.

Oregon - To opt against the Mormons would be sacrilege.

Washington - I know this gal in Davenport...

There ya go. First- timer so be nice.

RTR&MGB!!!

SORRY FOR REPEAT!!  Please ignore first post & read second.   CBS system blew up during first post, so I thought it didn't go through.

Thanks, Durfish!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Seems like I’m the only BYU fan participating in this post, so I’m getting my hate on by taking UTAH out of order. HATE UTAH!

#15 Utah vs #18 Oregon

The Ducks come in a close 2<sup>nd</sup>, though, with the absolutely WORST uniforms in college football. 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??

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State

I’m a lady; middle-aged and well-bred. I dislike crude, double entendres. I prefer not to know the State of anyone’s Balls.

#6 Michigan vs #27 Clemson

Don’t care on this one. Can I vote for Utah again?? OK,OK- Clemson; ‘cuz I don’t know any Clems or his sons.

#7 Ohio State vs #26 West Virginia

John Denver sings about West Virginia. He’s dead. I liked him. I’ll go with Ohio State. Besides, same amount of letters as Ball State. (Hey, my reasoning makes as much sense as anybody else’s!)

#8 Florida State vs #25 Maryland

Who doesn’t love to bowl with terrapins?? (Oops- just found out the mascot’s really a turtle!)


#9 Florida vs #24 Nebraska

Used to watch college football in the 60s & 70s with my dad. I just can’t hate any time-honored teams like Nebraska, Oklahoma, or Alabama. Besides, Urban Meyer left the Utes hangin’ after just a couple of years. I may hate UTAH, but I know a raw deal when I sniff one.

#10 Tennessee vs #23 Boston College

Tennessee’s out. I like BC. They had Doug Flutie, shortest quarterback ever. And he was cute. How could he see over all those big linemen??

#11 Auburn vs #22 Missouri

Missouri kicked out the Mormons and tried to kill them. Yes, I know that happened over 150 years ago. So??


#12 Alabama vs #21 Colorado

Years and years ago, BYU expressed interest in joining the Big 12. Colorado sneered at us. I hate ’em.


#13 Oklahoma vs #20 UCLA

UCLA thinks they are so PAC-10 hot, hanging out in Hollywood with celebrities. We’ll beat you down 59 to 0 anytime!


#14 Georgia vs #19 Penn State

Gotta respect Joe Paterno. Must be doing something right-- he’s been coaching since the late 1890s, before cars and TV; back when footballs were made out of real pigs.

#16 Washington vs #17 Iowa

Washington still thinks they’re a good team, deserving of a better coach, and they are 0 - 7! Denial is more than a river in Egypt!

But the Ducks come a close 2nd with the absolute worst uniforms in college football.  3 clashing shades of green, from  olive monkey puke to neon nuclear waste.  Not to mention the tire tread marks on the shoulders-- what's up with that?  Is their coach constantly throwing them under the bus??     Those uniforms give me migraines!

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State-- 

      
;    I'm a lady; a middle-aged one at that.   Crude double-entendres offend me.  I don't need to know the State of anyone's Balls.
