Badgers? We Don’t Need No Stinking Badgers!

Posted by Matt on January 1, 2008


Tennessee put away the Wisconsin Badgers with a late interception, stopping an attempt at a game-winning drive by Tyler Donovan to take home the Outback Bowl in what is shaping up to be a day of great football. The Michigan/Florida game and Texas Tech/Virginia game also had exciting finishes and I will have to say I was most surprised by the Wolverines’ defeat of the Gators in a game where the boys from Ann Arbor played some very inspired football in Lloyd Carr’s last game.

I will give the Wolverines and Carr credit, after two straight losses to open the season — with one being to Division 1-AA (a.k.a. Championship Sub-whatever) Appalachian State — they have really bounced back in what was shaping up to be a disaster of a season.  Furthermore, the Michigan senior class lead by Henne and Hart had never beaten Ohio State and had never won a Bowl game — I guess the sun even shines on a dog’s ass every once in a while.

The Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl are yet to be completed and I must say I am very excited for the Georgia/Hawaii matchup in Naw’lins as I want to see the SEC do well but I think Colt Brennan is extremely fun to watch when on his game.

Speaking of the SEC, at the start of the “Grandaddy Of ‘Em All” in Pasadena, they are pacing the conferences with a Bowl record of 5-2 along with the MWC at 4-1 while the ACC and Conference-USA have, at this point, mailed it in at 2-5 and 1-4, respectively of course.

Other by-conference Bowl records:

  • ACC: 2-5 
  • Big 12: 4-2
  • Big LEast: 1-2
  • Big Two Little Nine: 3-3
  • C-USA: 1-4
  • MAC: 0-1
  • MWC: 4-1
  • Pac 10: 3-2
  • SEC: 5-2
  • Sun Belt: 1-0
  • WAC: 1-2

I’ll take Southern California and Georgia, the latter in a close one, for the late games.  Enjoy your football and sauerkraut this New Year’s Day!
