    A little behind the Alamo Bowl’s total halftime score — they better come out shooting in the 2nd half.Report

      Seriously, how fun is this game?Report

        More fun than last year’s BCS title game, which was a bit brutal to watch.

        But I do have to complain about the fumble call in the first half.  It looked clear to me that Thomas’s arm had started forward (and I’m not usually a homer on these things, as I prefer a well-reffed game to a bad one that favors my team).Report

    Touchdown, Oregon!  One more and they can tie the record for most points by a team.Report

    ‘grats to Oregon, game well played.

    Now that the most exciting of the bowl games is over…let’s prepare for the yawnfest that’ll be the BCS championship… What’s the expected score line? 6-3?Report

    Congrats to the Oregon Ducks and their fans on their first Rose Bowl win in 95 years!Report

      What an elegant backhanded compliment!  [slow clap]

      And kudos to Ball and Wilson.  They gave us every bit as much trouble as I feared.  (I like Wisconsin, really; this is the first time I’ve rooted against them in the Rose Bowl.)Report

        Just playing along with the spirit you injected into the thread at the outset, James. 😉 Congrats.  A well-played game on both sides, at least taking the defensive limitations    (and offensive prowess) of the teams as a starting point.Report

      Every 95 years, like clockwork! And may I second James – I had not seen WI play until today. They are a blast, and both Ball and Wilson were amazing. Amazing athletes.Report

    I ended up missing the second half between feeding the toddler, cleaning up, eating our own dinner and putting her to bed. I’m still conflicted on whether or not I am sorry I missed it. By all accounts it was really exciting, but I still take the fortunes of my alma mater much too seriously.

    Plus, those helmets. The Ducks’ victory proves the football gods are not who we think they are.Report
