Who wins the Rose Bowl?

Poll closed Dec 24, 2004.
  1. Texas

    66.1%
  2. scUM

    33.9%
  1. I was going to make this a bet, but I don't know how. So instead it's a poll. Who do you think will win the Rose Bowl?

    strohs Go Bucks!

    Who I think will win, or who I want to win??
    I THINK scUM will win.
    After the embarassing loss to us, they are going to
    be hungry to end the season on a high note.
    Texas on the other hand is just lucky to be in the BCS,
    and with macky browns history of big game coaching, I think they choke.

    exactly... I think young will have a big day against them. Benson should also run wild on their D.

    I don't think this one is even going to be close. Although I maybe a little
    :) biased I think Texas is going to smash scUM. scUM hasn't even really showed me anything this year, I've been extremely impressed with Braylon Edwards, but I think tOSU really exposed that sorry excuse for a football team.

    The only reason Texas could lose this game is because they are Texas. I'm not sure if Vince Young is that much more superior to Troy Smith, but Michigan will have their hands full with him regardless. Don't know a lot about Texas' defense, so I'm thinking shoot-out.

    I have always rooted for the big ten but I am going against that on this game. I'm so sick of mi*higan posters I want them to lose just enough to keep llloyd around long enough to whine about a few more losses to tressel. Plus if TX beats tsun it will look that much better on the buckeyes when we beat them next year and give us a better chance of finishing high than them in this years poll(if possible). I say 35 to 14 texas. I should put my whole v$10,000 on texas. Has Carr ever traveled west and won?. I will root for every other big ten team, though.

    What exactly has Texas shown you this year?

    What i saw from Texas this year was an incredibly embarassing offensive performance against Oklahoma and two victories over mediocre teams that should have been losses. If it wasn't for a miracle fumble by Arkansas and a complete fourth quarter breakdown by the Kansas defense, they'd be playing us in the Alamo Bowl.

    While i'm not overly impressed with meatchicken's inexperience on offense, i think its ridiculous that vegas lists Texas as a six point favorite in this game.

    Your right Texas hasn't done much either, but I think they have more playmakers than scUM. If you shut down Braylon Edwards you have a freshman quarterback, freshman runningback, and almost zero chance for them to comeback if they are losing late in the game. How many times has Edwards had to bail this team out all year. Two that I know of.
    As far as the fumble by Arkansas is concened, you could make the same case in the Purdon't game. If Shazor doesn't cause the fumble by the freshman receiver I thought Purdon't wins the game. I think they only needed a fieldgoal.
    I just see Texas punching scUM square in the mouth which is going to look even better when we spank the Longhorns next year. (and like I said I might be a little baised...)

    I disagree. I think UT did its typical thing: Lose to OU, then tear everyone else apart late.

    I saw them in person and when they have all the cylinders running, they can't be touched.

    If UT ever beats OU again, the Horns will win it all.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    I will be rooting for the Big10, but I don't see too much of a chance for the SCummers to win. They sure didn't handle TS very well, and Texas has a pretty good running back too. I hope that they learned a lesson from THE game so as not to embarrass the conference though.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    The only thing that Young has over Smith is Benson. Smith, IMO, is a better passing QB than Young, and is just as good, or better than Young at running. Having Benson back there makes Young better. Plus Texas defense is very talented and athletic. Since it's a Mack Brown team. They could get into a shoot out, or shut those scUMmers out.

    I agree that Troy Smith is a better passer than Vincent Young, but he isn't nearly as dynamic of a runner. Vincent Young can flat out fly. He covers ground with such little effort (kinda reminds me of a certain Buckeye freshman) that it doesn't look like he is moving that quickly, but he just destroys angles.

    UM is going to lose, just like last year. Benson will pound them into submission. I also wonder how losing a couple of players from the Defense (indecency, urination, etc...) will affect them stopping Benson.

    I hope scUM wins, only because I'm ticked off that Cal didn't get the invite. The Rose Bowl is a PAC 10-Big Ten game... the Horns don't belong!!!
