You forgot the Orange Bowl that is really the only one I have any interest in. The rest I could care less about for the most part, but I will probably watch the Rose Bowl and the Liberty Bowl just to see if they can break the century mark in points scored. You also left the Sugar Bowl off the list, I may watch that one as well as I have enjoyed watching Auburn play this year.

I left those Bowls off the list on purpose; of course everyone wants to watch the Sugar and Orange Bowls, well at least the Orange. The only game I am sort of into is the Peach Bowl Miami and Florida, comes on at a great time as well. Don't ask why I like this Bowl, I guess cause I live in Florida but man it just gets under my skin when in reality these games don't mean much if anything.

Peach Bowl. The fast, powerful Miami defense vs. Chris Leak (the most likely QB in college football that may become an NFL superstar) and his weapons.

I like to watch as many as I can but the ones I will make an effort to see:

Holiday Bowl- How will Cal bounce back against pass-happy Texas Tech after getting screwed out of the BCS?

Liberty Bowl- Two of the nation's best offensive teams in arguably the best non-BCS match up.

Peach Bowl- Renewal of the Florida-Miami rivalry in traditionally one of better non-BCS games.

All bowl games on New Year's Day except Florida State-West Virginia. I'm looking forward to watching Pitt get embarassed by Utah.

All the others to this point I really could have cared less about (except for the Champs Sports Bowl, but let's not go there), but I am going to be very excited to watch the Broncos and Cardinals blow out the scoreboard in Memphis, as well as Miami and Florida tomorrow night.

Of course, I also am looking forward to the Orange Bowl, but who isn't?

However, most of the New Year's Day games I just don't get real jazzed by, but I will still watch them if they are close late in the game.

I'm interested in the outcome of the Rose Bowl, but I don't know if I feel motivated to watch it, if that makes any sense.

Also, kinda interested in the LSU-Iowa game. I don't know why, just am.

I'm always interested in the bowl games with Big Ten teams, especially the ones with B10/SEC & B10/B12 matchups.

I'm really looking foward too Pittsburgh vs. Utah, it wil be closer than people think. I think Utah is still unproven, with wins over noone but Texas A&M, who is getting crucified today.

So far my fav. bowl has been the sun bowl, after a horrible 1st half the second half was seesaw the all the way until the end.

Who has Pitt played. Utah destroyed Texas A&M (now being destroyed in the Cotton Bowl), North Carolina and won all of their games convincingly. Pitt almost lost to 1-AA Furman in OT. They lost to the worst Nebraska team in the last four decades. Pitt is an average team benefitting from playing in a pathetic conference. Three other teams can legitamately claim to be Big East champions for 2004. Utah is going to expose Pitt as the frauds that they are.

Yep, but Pitt is going to rise to the occasion under Tlyler Placo's leadership..... hopefully.

Gotta give it up to Texas and Michigan. That was one of the best college football games I have seen this year. Vince Young was amazing and Mack Brown finally wins a major bowl game. Maybe that will get the monkey off his back and he can beat the Horns next year.
