Wisconsin still embarrassing obliterating the 'Huskers.

Third straight Rose Bowl for them.

My plan is to watch the BCS championship, Pitt and WVU games (if they don't play one another).

Do people watch random bowl games?
I could never get into the idea.

No... I'm not a huge CFB fan, so unless there is a good matchup or nothing else on... I'm probably not watching.

Pinstripe bowl takes Cuse over Pitt. They even got WVU, what a shame. Would have made one of the lower bowls very interesting. And a fun NYC trip for ulf. Oh well.

Stupid stupid matchup. From the Bowls perspective it's outstanding though.

More kids from this area (NY - Tri-State) seem to attend Syracuse than any other BCS program, so....

Ehhh I'd assume the BYB would have a higher attendance.

Respectfully disagree.

First, Pitt doesn't travel. But I don't need to tell you that. Second, they'll sell EVERY seat. Mark my words. Plus they get many more eyeballs here in the NYC market than they'd get from Pittsburgh.

I don't disagree that Pitt doesn't travel. But they usually have a good showing in MSG, and I'd think this would bring a huge amount of pitt fans up.

Pitt basketball fans travel pretty well. Pitt football fans don't travel well at all.

None of which makes any difference.

As a NY'er for the last 13 years, I can tell you, Syracuse is a bigger draw in the NY market than is Pitt. It's not debatable.

If Ohio State wasn't on probation, it would likely be OSU-ND in the national championship. Hmm

erg, i'm not arguing that. I'm saying Pitt, specifically vs WVU, would draw well. If it was Pitt vs Iowa State, maybe 5K Pitt fans would be there. I think it would have sold out regardless, and the Pinstripe Bowl had a chance to make their 3rd tier bowl somewhat relevant, and didn't.
