revefsreleets,

Your Fiesta Bowl pick of Ohio State over Texas, just curious why you picked the Buckeyes? Are you thinking along the lines of their defense being able to shut down McCoy, or more the offense(Pryor and Wells specifically) being able to pick apart the Texas D?

it might come from the fact im almost 100% certain he is a Buckeye fan, but i have never seen him as some1 who is a homer picker. that maybe one of the BCS games i will actually watch to see the quarterback match up

I chose the Buckeyes because I think our defense can shut down McCoy & Co. plus they don't play defense in the Big 12 so I see Wells having a HUGE game.

I am very anxious to see the qb match-up as well. I will admit I am a bit surprised by how well Pryor has done his first year. I saw him play in high school( follow the WPIAL playoffs every year on tv). I knew he was a tremendous talent, such great athletic ability and a very strong arm, but I was more concerned with his maturity. Was he capable of being a leader? How would he handle the pressure of playing in such a big time college program? I think so far so good. He doesn't appear to get rattled too easily, and seems to make intelligent decisions with the ball. Baring any injuries(God forbid), he has the potential for becoming a great qb.

I usually try to watch all the bowl games. I LOVE college football

I have the Bucks beating Texas because this is a better defense than the one that held McCoy and the Horns to 7 points in Austin a couple years ago, and I think having a month and half off will almost amount to a "second season" for Terrelle Pryor. People forget that he didn't get to school early, so he was really thrown into the fire early.

Plus this is the redemption game...this team was supposed to compete for the NC, and this is damn close to it, since many think Texas deserving of playing for the title.
