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!!!

Sorry about the formatting. I guess Sportsline doesn't recognize iPod formats.

Notre Dame-yes they suck, but just remember .500 means another well deserved bowl! Ohio State-so they don't suck, they just ruin NC game and their conf. Is overrated annually! Miami-I can't believe there aren't more Florida teams in this. Goes to show the sad state of Florida football! iDaho-The reason I am taking the time to painstakingly hunt and peck this post out on my iPod touch @work! The dreggs of CFB every year should win hands down. And stop complaining about Boise State fans skewing the vote. I see plenty of Ute fans doing the same. Isn't that what this is about? And I vote for the detest crest, since the "burn in hell" Urn was not an option.

#3 Miami vs #6 Michigan - Not really sure why, it just seemed like the right thing to do.
Sometimes conscience just comes through.  Except for the "U", of course.

Its a good thing that the Ute fans don't ever bring up religion on the message boards... Wait I'm pretty sure I just saw that on almost every single post by a ute fan. Seriously guys enough with the ignorant comments. Its not our fault we're better than everyone else.

Florida State

USC

Miami

Idaho

And the trophy should be called the "He Hate Me" Trophy - best thing on the back of a jersey ever. Probably the highlight of the existence of the XFL.

Durfish, I'm back.  And, in case you haven't noticed, I, as usual, have a string of broncos behind me.  Just keep racking up the points for Idapimp.
