New Year's Day bowl musings

After sleeping in, I turned on the TV, put the channel on Fox, watched some of Arkansas' opening drive that ended in missed field goal and immediately wondered, "Why did I pick Arkansas?''

In case you're scoring at home, interim head coaches are 0-5 this bowl season. Send your kids to college on Wednesday night by taking Oklahoma against West Virginia.

Anyway, my original thought was that Arkansas was playing good football at the end of the season. Of course, I forgot that part of that good football was under coach Houston Nutt, who may not look so bad to Arkansas fans now.

What Tony Temple did to the Arkansas defense was downright embarrassing.

Give credit to Tennessee for finding a way to win a game. That Tennessee somehow won the SEC East and a bowl game should tell you something about Phil Fulmer and his players.

Florida was a disappointment. The Gators scoring 35, I expected. The Gators giving up 41, wow.

Give John David Booty some love. He threw three TDs for USC in the biggest mismatch of the bowl season thus far.
