Lost on Over 58 in the Clemson game. Props to Clemson.

Hey now, there is NOTHING wrong with that. For years now, the ACC and SEC have both been encouraging homosexual behavior among their players while celebrating the lifestyle by championing the cause of man-on-man affection there in the deep South. Christian Wilkins is just the latest example, the trend actually began when Florida's Maukrice Pouncey shared an affectionate, deep, wet man kiss with his twin brother on national TV 7 years ago:

I'm not sure that the ACC or SEC is encouraging or celebrating homosexual behavior or that lifestyle as you say. Plus, your description of a wet man kiss was a bit of a letdown when I actually watched the video.

Boise State continues to be the only Group of Five school worth a damn against the big boys in a major bowl game

I thought WMU would show up for sure, but that the game would be more like the first half all the way through. But they were really scrappy and managed to keep avoiding the fatal mistake until late - I mean, how many of their own fumbles did they recover? I also thought Wisconsin played a little too conservatively once they took command of the game early and that kept WMU close enough that they could keep it tight by taking some risks.

That said it never felt like Wisconsin was in danger of losing the game, and I can't complain about a good win against a solid opponent that had a lot to gain and motivation heading for the big stage. Hats off to WMU for a better showing than I honestly thought they would provide.

This Rose Bowl game is a lot of fun. Living up to the hype.

Christian Wilkins, Maukrice Pouncey, and Michael Sam are all very brave. We should applaud them from being so open about their man love.

4 touchdowns in 4 plays for Penn State, and USC just got two targeting penalties on a single drive. Geez.

Rose Bowl record 84 points so far, and we're still in the third quarter.

And Adoree just got hurt. That's not going to help the USC d. Should've sat out the game I guess. That field has been absolutely terrible since the beginning of the game.

Penn State players showing a lot of class though. Props to them.

Two personal fouls, only one was targeting. The other was a ticky tack Roughing the Passer penalty.

Look how torn up that field is. Ridiculous. Of course that isn't stopping Barkley from running all over it.

For the record, I did not buy any of these clothes. Xmas gifts, every one. The socks do make the ensemble though.

This Rose Bowl is amazing.

Except for all these reviews, challenges and commercials.

Two immensely stupid pass attempts by Penn State, that second being especially bad. Double covered, long pass to a stationary/underthrown receiver. How would that not be picked?

Might as well challenge it, the refs have been in their pocket all game.

Yeah that was some terrible play calling there. I understand playing to win, and to be honest that Freshman USC defender was just getting beat like crazy and if that first throw was thrown with any accuracy it would've been a completion, but to throw it a second time...

That is a ridiculously attractive child. I can only assume she got it from her mother.

If Alabama's offense stinks again and somehow Alabama actually loses, I wonder if Sarkisian still has the job next year. Anyone been fired after a single game.

Sam Darnold is a robot, that's the only explanation, the dude feels no emotion. Also Herbstreet said he grew up wearing a Leinart jersey growing up. Man college football makes me feel old.
