Well, well, well!  We're down to the round of 16 in our Hate Bowl 2008 Playoffs.  Interesting match-ups include one that's already been played on the field (BYU vs UCLA) and one that'll end the regular season in the Sunshine State (Florida vs Florida State).  All in all, there's a LOTTA hate to be had in these brackets. 

I'll set an initial target of Wednesday, November 12 for closing the "Unsweet 16".  Here are your match-ups.  Just post your selections in the comments under this blog.  As with last round, only complete ballots with ALL GAMES SELECTED will be counted.  No hanging chads allowed.

Enjoy!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "UNSWEET 16"

What??? NO ARMY???

Sheesh, well here it goes for the rest of them.....

Notre Dame -- where's my Staples "easy" button?  "That was easy!"

USC -- Consolation bowl is in their back yard and they drag a crappy Little Ten team across the US to whoop up on and then cry for a share of the NC

Miami -- Florida team, enough said

BYU -- mountainkittens?

Idaho -- Possible to be worse than Notre Dame?  Idaho says yes!

Michigan -- LIttle Ten team can't even win their first home game each year, against an overrated mid major and a Div 1aa opponent.

Ohio State -- Little Ten team that backs it's way into the NC game two years running.  Suckeyes!

Florida --  Gater hater here!

(how is Idaho even in here.. they play no one.. beat no one.. oh wow they are such a threat.. Cmon Boise State fans... why didnt you have Fresno here.. pleaseeeeeeeeeee)

Did I miss something?  Are we only supposed to hate teams because they are good?  I thought this was all about hating a team/school for any reason.  If the requirements for hating a team is that they beat the school you cheer for, that wouldn't leave very many teams for Boise State fans to hate now would it?  That would include Utah, BYU and TCU for the record.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "UNSWEET 16"

Notre Dame (None of the talent, can't beat ANYONE)

USC (All the talent, can't beat Oregon State at home.....hahahahha)

Georgia (SEC = suck equine cock-a-doodle doo)

BYU (great history, and history again this season)

Idaho (my number 1 for obvious reasons.  Best Div 1aa program of the bunch!)

Michigan (Couldn't beat lowly Utah.  If they had, Boise State would be BCS bound  right now)

OHST (responsible for two unwatchable NC games in a row)

Florida (only because I have to chose only one.  No fair matching up the Florida teams!)

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "UNSWEET 16"

Notre Dame - I hope they form a conference with Liberty University, Southern Methodist, and Brigham Young, call it the Battle of Armeggon Division (B.A.D)

USC - University of Scams and Cons

Miami - The U...well I think that says it all

BYU - see Notre Dame

Idaho - For so many years they owned the Boise State game.  Now we have to have them follow the Broncos around from conference to conference because they can't sell enough seats in their stadium to pay the rent.

Michigan - Because

Tennessee - Because Lord Woody Hayes would strike me down otherwise

Florida - There is only one team in the NCAA that should be wearing Orange and Blue -  GO BRONCOS!!!
