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"

#1 Notre Dame vs #16 Washington - ND is like a stubborn child.  "I don't wanna play with the other kids, I wanna play by myself!"  Then they get rewarded by a BCS Bowl that they have no business playing in.  It's 2008 for God's sake.  Join a conference.  But more importantly...Rudy makes my eyes bleed.

#2 USC vs #18 Oregon - That smug look on Pete Carroll when he's beating the piss out of anybody makes me want to punch him the face. 
#3 Miami vs #14 Georgia - The "U"?  WTF is the "U"?  On a mascot note...wtf is an Ibis?  How do you get Donald Duck as your mascot?

#4 BYU vs #20 UCLA - They took away a guy's degree because of a calender of shirtless male missionaries.  How convienent that Joseph Smith Jr. lost his magical "glasses." 

#5 Idaho vs #12 Alabama - Has Idaho been annexed by Canada yet? 

#6 Michigan vs #11 Auburn - Michigan is my favorite team, which means I hate them more than anyone also.

#7 Ohio State vs #10 Tennessee - Do they know that their mascot is a peanut butter ball dipped in chocolate?  I mean, how "manly" can you be if your mascot is a wanna-be Reese's Cup.

#8 Florida State vs #9 Florida - Oh how I loved seeing them beaten down by Michigan...memories....memories...&
nbsp; Tim Tebow will suck in the NFL...I think.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "UNSWEET 16"

#1 Notre Dame vs #16 Washington - They better be glad that I'm so anti-Idaho, or they would be my most hated team

#2 USC vs #18 Oregon - I'm just getting sick of them, you know?

#3 Miami #14 Georgia - They just seem more "hateable" to me

#4 BYU vs #20 UCLA - Pulling for a BYU win over Utah for BCS reasons

#5 Idaho vs #12 Alabama - The beat noone, do nothing.  Well, I guess they make it harder for any team that plays them to get respect.

#6 Michigan vs #11 Auburn - Just because they are from the tiny ten

#7 Ohio State vs #10 Tennessee - Just don't want to see them anymore.

#8 Florida State vs #9 Florida - Gotta go for the noles to win the ACC so we might be able to play them in the orange bowl

Washington; for how poorly they're playing USC because; for such a outrageously talented team; they just don't get it (stay away from the the weed in Oregon!) Miami; an ancient set of issues for me BYU; too many reasons to list here Idaho; again for how poorly they play Michigan; especially the last few years ... and that new coach; where's he comin' from? Ohio St; who wouldn't pick this, unless you've got issue with or within the SEC. Florida and its "disrespect" of alligators or FSU and its "disrespect" of the Seminole .... hummmm, I think the tree hugger in my has to go with the rootin' for those poor lizards; so I'll put FSU as the "bad" guys.
So; that's Washington, USC, Miami, BYU, Idaho, Michigan, Ohio St, and Florida St.
