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!!!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "HATE EIGHT"

My votes:

Notre Dame - I cant stand that they have so much say in the BCS committees when they are a single school.

Ohio State - They should be banned from the NCG for at least a couple of years.

Michigan - Being a Ute I needed Michigan to win their games, but they suck!

BYU - I would rather make love to poo than ever pull for these guys in a game!

The "You Bastard" Trophy is the one I would love to bestow upon the Y.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "HATE EIGHT"

Well of course I gotta get in here...   so here goes my hate 8 picks!  Man these are getting hard.. I have some level of hate for all of these teams!


#1 Notre Dame vs #8 Florida State   How can you not hate a team that doesnt play well with others, hired fat Charly and still struggles and enjoys being called Golden Domers... sounds like a 70's porno to me! lol   

#2 USC vs #7 Ohio State  This one overall was pretty easy for me... It still kills me they are so paranoid they have to throw on "The" to Ohio State University.. to the point that people here even put the t when talking about tOSU ... so take that..add in the perennial over rated nature of the team (aka embarassing losses agains LSU and FLA in the NCG and the debacle against USC this year)  and I had to vote for That Ohio State Univeristy... as they say speed kills..  they are dead! lol

#3 Miami vs #6 Michigan   Oh so tough.. but hey I love the underdog so going to have to give Mich the nod!!!! 

#4 BYU vs #5 Idaho   I still dont get Idaho.. they shouldn't of made any cut.. those Boise State Fans sure have hate for Idaho.. it must go back the the spud wars of 1900 or something! lol   But how do you not hate a team that just keeps talking about 84... was talking about how they deserved to be in the NCG this year after week 3 when they still hadnt beaten anyone good and well.. I had to change the date originally planned for my wedding in 1990 because to many family thought they had to go see BYU play Miami that day!!! 

NAME THE TROPHY (select ONE)

The Al Davis Trophy

The "He Hate Me" Trophy

The Haterade Cup

The "You Bastard" Trophy

The "F- OFF" Cup

The Detest Crest

Nothing.  No trophy.  Just call it the Crapple Cup.

 

Oh this is tough.. I came up with a few of these... but not really that tough as I will go with my Favorite as well as Dur's wifes favorite.. go Mrs Fish!!!!

Got 'em, PanzerKoenigin.  Welcome aboard.

Mitt Romney = Fulmer in a thong?  That's an image I could do without.  Thanks a bunch.

(I'm always depressed when I see tOSU in another NC game. Usually lose interest pretty quickly. Yawn.)

Guess you can stash away the No-Doz and Prozac this year!!!

Here we go.

#1 Notre Dame vs #8 Florida State (My utter, complete and total loathing for ND cannot be overstated.)

#2 USC vs #7 Ohio State (I'm always depressed when I see tOSU in another NC game. Usually lose interest pretty quickly. Yawn.)

#3 Miami vs #6 Michigan (This was a tough one. Don't like either)

#4 BYU vs #5 Idaho (Idaho isn't even on my Radar)

No trophy.  Just call it the Crapple Cup. (Not really into profanity. To each his own.)
