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!!!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Note: I tried to post on your thread but I don't think it went through.  If it did or eventually does, I apologize and disregard one of them.

 

Idaho - Love my Fightin' Football Fighting Cardinals.  My all-time playstation dynasty.

Clemson - Love my Michigan for real... and c'mon, Death Valley?  When's the last time Clemson has 'killed' any team of significance down there?)  Plus a Bowden coached there.  Bowden points.

Ohio St. - Seriously, only a #7 seed?  Maurice Clarett, Andy Katzenmoyer, David Boston, Santonio Holmes, Will Smith, Steve Bellisari.  They've assembled a cast of classy characters over the years.

Florida St. - Steve Spurrier's all-time finest moment: "Free Shoes University."  Extra Bowden points (Bowden sighting #2).

Florida - A very close battle with the Huskers.  Since it's 2008 and not 1998, and since the Huskers have eased up on the rapes, assaults, battery charges, etc since then, I go with the Gators.

Tennessee - Is Fulmer's program at least graduating more than 20% of its players now that they can't win on the field??

Auburn - Don't really have a problem with either.  But, extra Bowden points (Bowden sighting #3).

Colorado - THE TOUGHEST MATCHUP OF ALL.  While Nick Saban isn't the most likable guy, I'll give the nod to Colorado just based on the fact that its despicable off-field behavior is slightly more recent than Bama's.  The systematic sex for recruits scandal wins over the late 90's Mike DuBose sexual harrassment debacle.

Oklahoma - Just because they cost me $500 in my bowl pool last year by that dreadful performance vs. WVU.

Georgia - The celebration last year; the phrase "between the hedges".

Oregon - Phil Knight and the Oregon Ducks as his main test-tube:  destroying college football uniforms one game and one futuristic shoulder "diamond-patterned grid" at a time.

Washington - Eh, I feel bad to pick on the Seattle sports scene at this moment.  But they get a few Neuheisel points I guess.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Well I'm feeling awfully hateful on this halloween since I have to work so here we go.

#5 Idaho over #28 Ball State (Although I don't hate either team)

#27 Clemson over #6 Michigan (I'm surrounded by the Maize and Blue out here in central Illinois, so I had to go with the upset)

#7 Ohio State over #26 West Virginia (My #1 will stay strong through this tourney)

#8 Florida State over #25 Maryland (I guess people don't like the Criminals, and neither do I)
 
#9 Florida over #24 Nebraska (Only recently have I had a hatred for Florida after my Bears decided to keep taking QB's from Gainesville)

#10 Tennessee over #23 Boston College (Neutral on this one also)

#22 Missouri over #11 Auburn (Hate the college, hate the football team, hate the baseball team, hate the state)

#12 Alabama over #21 Colorado ("It was obvious Katie was not very good. She was awful. You know what guys do? They respect your ability. You can be 90 years old, but if you can go out and play, they'll respect you. Katie was not only a girl, she was terrible. OK? There's no other way to say it."
-- The Great Gary Benett

#13 Oklahoma over #20 UCLA (I like UCLA's basketball program, that counts right?)

#19 Penn State over #14 Georgia (Sorry Joe-Pa, you should've quit a couple of years ago, may you and Bobby be fighting for #1 'til you pass)

#15 Utah over #18 Oregon (I'll go with the coolest jerseys on this one, and Oregon's definitely take the cake (oh and how about them dancers?))

#17 Iowa over #16 Washington (One team who's coach is already gone vs. one that's on his way, Bye Bye Mr. Ferentz)

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE


#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State - As I said before, hate is such and ugly word.  And in this case soooo appropriate!

#6 Michigan
vs #27 Clemson - I don't have a problem with Michigan, just the Puny Ten in general.

#7 Ohio State vs #26 West Virginia - See the above and magnify by TEN.  The worst team to make back to back NC appearances!

#8 Florida State
v #25 Maryland - The only major conference teams I dislike more than the Florida teams are...well, no one!

#9 Florida vs #24 Nebraska - See the above and magnify by 100.  Florida bought Meyer to win a NC.  What's a matter?  Couldn't win without a mid major coach at the helm?

#10 Tennessee
vs #23 Boston College - Miss a chance to vote down an SEC team?  Never!

#11 Auburn vs #22 Missouri - Same as above.  Plus Mizzou got screwed last year by the BCS.  Cheering for them this year.

#12 Alabama
vs #21 Colorado - Same as above, plus I can't blame Hawkins for going to CO.  Besides, Boise State is better off without him!

#13 Oklahoma vs #20 UCLA - Just can't vote for OU after the FIesta.  The fans were great in person after the game.

#14 Georgia vs #19 Penn State - SEC team again, Sugar bowl schlacking of UH and watching Z throw the game against them singlehandedly in 2005 stirs the fires of hate once again!  Toughest choice though, don't like either team.

#15 Utah vs #18 Oregon - One in ten fans are good.  Most are stuck up overprivledged snobs with no football IQ.

#16 Washington vs #17 Iowa - No way we should have lost that game a year ago.

Lot of hate to spread around I guess.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

Idaho vs Ball State - Nothing personal except that tha Vandals seem to be the main rival of the Potato Zoobs (BSU).

Michigan vs Clemson - My Utes had a great experience at the Big house this year so I have to cut them a break.

Ohio State vs West Virginia - Back to back National Championship Game losers and I really love the joke about the toothbrush being invented at WVU because anywhere else and it would have been called a teethbrush.

Florida State vs Maryland - No real preference here so I went with the opponent of the team with a Native American Mascot.

Florida vs Nebraska - No good, Rotten, Coach Stealing, So and So's. And their Disloyal, Lying, Team Jumping, Recruit Stealing Coach

Tennessee vs Boston College - I can still remember BC beating the BYU Cooters

Auburn vs Missouri - The Utes should have gotten to play Auburn in 04 insted of Pitt.

Alabama vs Colorado - I went to High School in Colorado

Oklahoma vs UCLA - Tommy Grady really sucked, Thank you very much.

Georgia vs Penn State - This vote's more about Gymnastics than Football.

Utah vs Oregon - I think we have the Ducks on our Future Schedule.(Like I'm really going to vote against my team)

Washington vs Iowa - I can't help but feel pity for the Huskies

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State -  Idaho in a landslide...Do they still have a football program @ Idaho?

#6 Michigan vs #27 Clemson - Michigan. It's hard to believe they were ever any good...Rich Rod is a douchecanoe.

#7 Ohio State vs #26 West Virginia- The Ohio State University. Can they beat anyone who's any good? I don't believe so...

#8 Florida State vs #25 Maryland - Maryland in the upset. The Terps? Really? You all couldn't think of any better name than the Terps?

#9 Florida vs #24 Nebraska - Florida. The team everybody loves to hate and home to the most SEC BCS elitest homers on the planet!

#10 Tennessee vs #23 Boston College - In five overtimes - My second Hate Bowl upset - BC. As much as I hate Phil, there's no coach in the country that does less with more talent, Fullmer. BC came off as a bunch of snobby, ungratefull, elitest bast*rds on their visit to The Blue.

#11 Auburn vs #22 Missouri - Auburn. When was the last time they were any good? SEC, blah, blah, blah. Didn't they win a game 3-2 this year? 3-2? Nice offense. It ain't baseball for crying out loud!

#12 Alabama vs #21 Colorado - Alabama. Only because I like Dan Hawkins and because Alabamans have that crazy redneck lingo they speak.

#13 Oklahoma vs #20 UCLA - UCLA. For the most part OU fan is respectful. Same can't be said for So Cal fan of University of Caucasian Lost among Asians.

#14 Georgia vs #19 Penn State - Georgia. See above SEC, blah, blah, blah comments. Except they're good. also see crazy redneck lingo comments associated to Bama fan. I guess it's not as much I hate Georgia as it is I couldn't give a sh*t about PSU & their 90 year old coach...

#15 Utah vs #18 Oregon - The toughest yet. Gotta go with OU. Only because of the BCS buster association Boise State has with Utah. That and the BCS association with OU is enought to make any mid major supporter a hater! See you on The Blue next year Ducky's....

#16 Washington vs #17 Iowa - Finally, in a mild upset. Iowa. How was this team every any good? Can you imagine trying to recruit to Iowa?

 

Peace

I-4-H
