What was the most entertaining January 1st bowl game?

Seeing ttun lose on a sort-of last second TD pass made my hangover a little more bareable. Plus I took the Gamecocks giving 4 pts.
I also laid the 4 w/ the Cardinal in the Grand Daddy.

If they don't stop pulling Spartys, they might have to take the mantle of Little Brother from State.

Especially since Sparty stopped Spartying as of last year. Can we please make "WOLVIE NO!" a thing?

Haha, I think this year put Sparty back on the Spartying bandwagon personally.  :-)

Wow, I am sort of surprised by how lopsided this is.  I thought the Nebraska-Georgia game was outstanding.  Didn't give Nebraska much of a chance at all, and they really showed up.  Georgia revealed the talent gap at QB/WR later on in the game, but gotta credit that Nebraska rushing attack.  Michigan-SC was a defensive struggle, but Michigan came through in looking hapless against a good team for 70% of the game.  Both were good, though...had the Citrus on my TV and the Outback streaming on my laptop.

Was flipping back and forth.  Better announcers for the TTUN game.  Made alot of difference.  GF made the same comment.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

For me, it was because the Georgia pulled away early enough that it was obvious the game was over earlier than I would like to call it the most entertaining. I enjoyed watching it more throughout most of it, but the ending of the Michigan game was far superior. Big endings tend to win out over an entertaining first 3 quarters.
Plus, the Clowney hit and the refs calling the first down that wasn't were both great entertainment wise :)

I am always entertained by Michigan losing.

The AACC loss was the highlight of my day.  My mother-in-law, who is a fan of ttun, told me go blew when we chatted earlier in the day.  I told her I wasn't rooting for them.  She was puzzled since they were in the b1g.  Well, since I'm a fan of tOSU and not the b1g I was rooting for SC.  She was a little peeved, so what.  Clowney decapitating that dude was icing on the cake.

It is bad for OSU when the B1G sucks, no ifs ands or buts about it. Not rooting for M*chigan is one thing, but in the long run, the success of the B1G is vital to OSU being viewed as a top notch school. Being a big fish in a small pond does not carry the same weight as being the biggest fish in a big pond. I understand your disdain for the maize and blue, but putting down the entire conference isn't helpful to the cause.

Meh, I pulled for Nebraska, Sparty, Wisconsin, and Northwestern. That's about all I can stomach in one day.

I agree with you. Usually I pull for everyone except TTUN and Wisconsin, but I was pulling for the Badgers yesterday( mainly because of Alverez).

I kinda got pumped for the B1G after Northwestern won and actually started to pull for scUM for a while.
Then I came to my senses and enjoyed a good game and a scUM loss.

Long live the southend.

I voted for Michigan-South Carolina. Jadeveon Clowney was a monster.

As did I,  DId anyone else see the hit in the Rose Bowl??  Not as good as Clowney's, but a sweet open field pop.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I saw that hit as well. I hated to see the reciever get hurt, and I don't know if he ever came back into the game or not, but that was a nice, clean open field hit.

Dude look like he was in serious pain on the sideline......he wanted no part of the field after that hit. I think he was an Ohio kid.

Normally I root all B1G with the exception of scUM and usually Wisky, but this year, being a Stanford student made booing the Vadgers extremely easy and scUM is always scUM. My only heartbreak loss, then, was Nebraska. It was a close game though.

Voted NWern, since they almost Wolvie'd it away at the end of the first half and start of the second, but ended up pulling away and looking dominant in the process. Beating an SEC team too didn't hurt.

Absolutely loved watching scUM lose.  Was disappointed that my local Outback ran out of bloomin' onions tho.
