Here were my 33 bowl picks for 2008. I am 17-16 overall in bowl games.  I have had a great year with an average bowl round this year but I enjoyed the upsets.  I finished 263-96 overall. 

Chick-fil-A:
LSU vs. Georgia Tech- If GT shows up like they did against Georgia.. ugly game.  LSU might keep it interesting- Georgia Tech- Incorrect (Glad I was wrong)

Outback:
South Carolina vs. Iowa- Poor game to watch but SC better team, could be close- South Carolina- Incorrect.. talk about not showing up...wow!

Capital One:
UGA vs. Michigan State- MSU no joke but UGA will win with their strong offense.  Defense will keep MSU in game- UGA- Correct

Gator:
Clemson vs. Nebraska- Two even teams with building programs.  This will be a close game- Coin Flip- Clemson- Incorrect

Liberty:
Kentucky vs. East Carolina- Kentucky is rebuilding and edge goes to a decent over ranked EC team- East Carolina- Incorrect

International:
Bufflao vs. Connecticut- Might be close but Connecticut has my vote- Connecticut- Correct

GMAC:
Tulsa vs. Ball State- Who knows how good Ball State or Tulsa really is?? Coin Flip- Ball State- wow... what an upset but clearly Ball State was over ranked.  Tulsa came to play.

Holiday:
Oklahoma State vs. Oregon- It might be a good decent game but OSU solid team and probally will win big.- Oklahoma State- Incorrect

Armed Forces:
Houston vs. Air Forces- Coin Flip- Air Force- Incorrect

Sun:
Oregon State vs. Pitt- Two evenly matched teams but edge goes to Pitt- Pitt- Incorrect

Music City:
BC vs. Vandy- Both teams had weird inconsistent seasons but BC finshed much better overall- BC- Incorrect

Insight:
Kansas vs. Minnestota- Not sure which team will show up either way but edge goes to KU's QB- KU- Correct

Eagle Bank:
Wake Forest vs. Navy- Coin Flip- Wake Forest- Correct

New Mexico:
Colorado St. vs. Fresno St. Edge goes to Fresno St. overall- Fresno State- Incorrect

Magic Jack:
Memphis vs. South Florida- Coin Flip- South Florida- Correct

Las Vegas:
BYU vs. Arizona-  BYU better team overall- BYU- Incorrect

New Orleans:
Southern Miss vs. Troy- Southern Miss- Correct

Poinsetta:
Boise State vs. TCU- Should be a great matchup and close, shootout- Boise State-Incorrect

Sheraton Hawaii:
Hawaii vs. ND- Wow.. ND in a bowl.. Hawaii down this year and though it will be ugly.. ND has the edge-  Notre Dame- Correct

Motor City:
Fla Atlantic vs. Central Michigan- Central Michigan- Incorrect

Meineke:
West Virginia vs. North Carolina- I would love a NC win but WV Qb's last game will be a win- West Virginia- Correct

Champs:
Wisconsin vs. FSU- FSU up and down, this will be a win- FSU- Correct

Emerald:
Miami vs. Cal- Cal better team- Cal- Correct

Independance:
North Illinois vs. Ltech- ???Coin Flip.. I will go with North Illinois- North Illinois- Correct

Papa Johns:
NC State vs. Rutgers- probally will turn out very close- Rutgers- Correct

Valero Alamo:
Missouri vs. Northwestern- Missouri will rebound and blow this team out- Missouri- Correct

Humanitarian:
Maryland vs. Nevada- Maryland- Correct

Texas:
Rice vs. West Michigan- West Michigan- Incorrect

BCS Games:

Rose:
USC vs. Penn State- Two solid teams.  Should be a great game but USC will win this game.- USC- Correct

Sugar:
Utah vs. Bama- Alabama- Bama- Incorrect

Fiesta:
Texas vs. Ohio State- I would love to see this will be close but Ohio State has real Defense issues and Texas will win big- Texas- Correct

Orange:
Cincy vs. Virginia Tech- Probally a close game but edge goes to coaching- VT- Correct

National Championship (TBD):
Florida vs. Oklahoma- 5 point or less finish- It seems fitting that two teams in the two best ranked conferences play.  Oklahoma brings a decent defense with an explosive offense, QB will win top award.  Florida brings a past award winner and probally runner-up winner this year, they have a solid defense with an explosive offense, when Harvin is healthy.  I do think it will be a shootout but in the end I believe Florida will win and keep the SEC as champs in the title game.  If Oklahoma is even in the 4th.. could be a great finish.- Florida
