On January 4, 2006 at 5:00 p.m. (PST) the Rose Bowl Game will host the BCS National Championship, between USC and Texas once again showcasing the best of collegiate football in "The Granddaddy of Them All."® The Rose Bowl will be broadcast exclusively on ABC and on ESPN radio.


I've got some Bridgeport IPA and popcorn just waiting! My Irish Stout has only been in the bottles a week. Had two last night. Petty darned good carbonation in one. It was slightly warmer than the other. Maybe that was the difference. Hopefully, the fruity taste from the WL Irish Ale yeast will subside some after a while.

Oh, that's right... this is a football thread!

I'm pretty ambivalent about this game (NCSU fan), though I'll watch it as soon as I get home. I did learn to like UT while I lived in Dallas (mostly thanks to A&M fans), but I hate Smack Brown. Oh well, at least there's homebrew and chips!

Thank you very much. I guess you didn't know this board was a football jinx, did you? The very mention of your team here is a guaranteed 50 pt. loss. I'm glad you did it...it probably would have worked in reverse for me.

And BeeGee...you're right, brown is a clown.

Oh no... I had read about the jinx, but forgotten about it. Oh well, it'll still be a good game. I hope.... lol

Anybody who thinks Texas has a chance in this game has had one too many homebrews. I'm not a USC fan (go OSU Beavers!) but I have serious respect for the Trojans. Too many weapons . . .

I predict that USC will have a slow offensive start (as they have many times this season) but that in the second half they'll drop the hammer and leave the Longhorns in the dust. Final score will not be close.

AHU

Which is exactly why I'm scared to death that the shorthorns will pull this one out.

Oh, and by the way, I'm a huge beaver fan too.

I've been telling everyone for a week that Texas might well get whooped. Some have been tellin' me that USC had yet another easy schedule.

I'm more of a LSU Tiger fan, but living in Texass, and hating most anything from California, what can I say? 52 more minutes!

Well, I had one too many homebrews, but it looked like they had a chance in the 3rd quarter when I fell asleep.

Remind me to ask you for football advice if I ever go to Vegas and bet on the sports book... that way I can bet the opposite of your predictions!

Who's crying now, SC fans - stick to surfing! Vince Young is unbelievable!
