Let the BCS Bowl Wagers Begin!

president bush says hook em!It’s BCS Bowl season and it’s time to place your wagers:

(1) Select the BCS bowl with your team in it.
(2) Commit to your team in a trackback or comment below.
(3) If your team loses, you’ll have to write “I heart [insert winning team]” on your forehead in Sharpie, photograph it, publish it on your blog, admitting that the winning team is awesome and the losing team sucks. That’s the wager.

Who’s in?

I’m betting that THE University of Texas will beat Arizona State! Either Dalton will have an embarassing pic up or Jay Thompson and I will… stay tuned!

    I’d participate, but my Alma Mater (the Fightin’ Blue Hens of the U. of Delaware) participates in a REAL playoff. And that’s the way it should be.

    Are we talking basketball or football?

    ASU is going to crush the longhorns. 9-3 in the little 12 with a schedule like that? Are you kidding me? How do you lose to KState and Texas A&M, then nearly lose to Nebraska? Were you guys 4th or 5th in your conference this year? This is going to be fun.

    So Damon, are you in?

    Hmmm…does it have to be a permanent sharpie? Dry erase will work right? I’m in.

    If my team had not been royally screwed over by the BCS sytem, and the Rose Bowl in particular, I would have gladly signed up. But thanks to the Rose Bowl picking Illinois, and the resulting cascade effect, Arizona State is in the Holiday Bowl. Actually, to be honest, at the start of the season I could never have imagined such an oustanding result for my team. But with a BCS game in our grasp, it was heart wrenching to be handed this blow by our conferences BCS “partner”.

    Now, if I can pick ASU over Texas in the Holiday Bowl, I’ll be in.

    Okay Steve, you’re in! Choose wisely…

    I did not go to a school with a football team, so I guess I am out. Plus, most of the teams down here in Florida sucked this year, so I refuse to pick one.
