Gotcha. I should have sensed the passion in your "Hook 'Em Horns" statement.
Well, there appear to be some pretty nice matchups in the bowls this year. The non-BCS game that stands out to me is the Peach (LSU vs. Miami). The Fiesta (Ohio St. vs. Notre Dame) should be fun to watch - remembering how big that game was when the two met in the mid 90's while going to school in Ohio. The Rose (Texas vs. USC) certainly looks like a dandy and hopefully will live up to it's billing.
On the flip side, my beloved Colorado Buffs have done the fastest freefall out of what looked like a Holiday Bowl spot all the way down to the Champs Sports Bowl. I guess that is what you get when you get absolutely dominated in your last 10 quarters of the regular season (2nd Half of the Iowa St. game, Nebraska, and the debacle known as the Big 12 Championship game).
