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!!!

 

#1 Notre Dame vs #8 Florida State  NOTRE DAME LEADS 27-15

#2 USC vs #7 Ohio State  OHIO STATE LEADS 28-14

#4 BYU vs #5 Idaho  BYU LEADS 28-14

Florida State.   ND's too pathetic to hate like I used to.

Ohio State

Michigan. 

Idaho

Every last one of these stinkin' teams has made me touch their hands for stupid reasons!

Trophy:  It HAS to be The You Bastard Trophy!   Genius!!

Aaaaah, you're killing me, Fishstick.  I need a complete ballot.  Did the BYU national championship piss you off?  Do you dislike potatoes?  Get back to me.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "HATE EIGHT"

#1 Notre Dame vs #8 Florida State - Don't really like Florida State, but ND fans are the some of the lamest in all sports.  I detest ND.

#2 USC vs #7 Ohio State - I hate both teams, but USC takes the cake in my book.

#3 Miami vs #6 Michigan - Never like Michigan, but I have always hated the Hurricaines.

#4 BYU vs #5 Idaho - Draw.  I have nothing against either team, a vote for either would be unfounded.

 

I'll vote for no trophy.
