HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "HATE EIGHT"

My people, you have evidently seeded our contestants correctly.  Round Two of the Hate Bowl Playoffs is in the books, and our Unsweet 16 is now the Hate Eight.  In the round just completed, Notre Dame (23-4 over Washington), USC (25-2 over Oregon), and Ohio State (22-5 over Tennessee) all came through strong with double-digit wins.  As they say in Little Italy, " 'Atsa lotta HATE!"  Our closest game was Florida State's three point win over Florida .  I guess they had one that DIDN'T go wide right.

In any event, now it's time for Round Three...the "HATE EIGHT".  The rules are the same as before.  You must pick a larger lowlife in each pairing.  Incomplete ballots won't be counted.  Keep in mind that these matchups are based on the ORIGINAL SEEDING that resulted from our "regular season".  I take NO CREDIT for the USC-tOSU or BYU-Idaho pairings.  Wish I could!

There's one bonus to this round...our "Name The Trophy" contest.  The proposed names are listed at the bottom of the ballot.  Just give me your #1 pick.  

I'd like to finish this round by Sunday, November 16 so we can march this along and keep some interest.  That said, HEEEERE WE GO!!!

Pick the team you hate most in each pairing...

UPDATED STANDINGS AS OF 10:00pm ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14!!!

I'm kinda partial to the Al Davis trophy.  You could really bling that sucker up.  Throw in some polyester and some age spots.  A thing of ugly!

"The Burn In Hell Urn" is OUTSTANDING!  Maybe we'll use that for another event.

I knew y'all would be by.  I thought about going over to your board to see if you were stirring things up, but I got "a-scared" of what I'd see.

Best thing about all of this is I just get to read it all.  Y'all provide all of the juice.
