    BCS Games this year have sucked...

    Sadly, I think a lot of mediocre teams in the B12 and SEC would be able to beat every BCS team except Florida, Alabama, and Texas.
    Iowa: pretty good-would probably lose to a Nebraska or Oklahoma
    Cincinnati: sucked
    Georgia Tech: sucked
    TCU: sucked
    Boise State: sucked
    Florida: Hate to say it, but they looked really good.

    Fiesta Bowl: Both teams played extremely sloppy and was boring.
    Sugar Bowl: Florida was way to fast for Cincinnati, and it got ugly fast.
    Orange Bowl: Georgia Tech was absolutely awful. Really boring game. I'm suprised Iowa let them stay in the game for so long.

    Hopefully the NC makes up for these games.

    Edit:
    I can't believe I forgot the Rose Bowl!
    Anyway, I thought the Rose Bowl was decent but nothing spectacular.

    This has been one of the worst bowl years I can remember.

    No doubt about it. Makes you thirst for the opportunity we have next year when we are in the BCS.

    Iowa: would only be beaten by Texas from the Big 12
    Cinci: sucked
    Georgia Tech: sucked
    TCU vs. Boise was a GREAT game.
    Florida: didn't see but can assume from the *** kicking they handed out played well.
    Fiesta: Great offenses vs. great defenses. Defenses won.
    Orange: Triple option is easy to prepare for when you have a month to do so.

    Really?

    I thought the only boring game was the Sugar Bowl.

    Then again, I find low scoring, close games more exciting than the shootouts. Every series,,, no, every play is important in low scoring close games.

    Bowl games suck for me because they are virtually meaningless if your team isn't in them.

    Quarterbacks were throwing terrible passes. It was ugly. After the first play TCU's running back jogged to the sideline and threw up. These teams did not look good. During the game, I was thinking if ISU had a really good game, they could probably beat both of them.

    I think kNebraska would give Iowa a run for its money, the way they played their last two games.

    I didn't know Iowa ran the Triple option? I guess you learn something new every day!

    Iowa State would get DRILLED by both of those teams. If we kept it within 35 it'd be shocking.

    And don't give the defenses any credit. I'm sure those quarterbacks were trying to be awful. It's not like both teams had excellent defenses.

    I don't watch many. I really stop caring once ISU is done.

    Although there were so many crazy things going on in the Orange Bowl that it kept me watching.

    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: BCS Games this year have sucked...

    Iowa could beat Texas or Alabama on the right day

    They match up pretty well

    Iowa is Neb with a little more Offense




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Don't try. I think the idea here is to find another way to say "Iowa sucks."
