Lemmy and Bucky Pick the Bowls: December 28th

Champs Sports Bowl - #22 West Virginia (9-3) vs. North Carolina State (8-4) - 6:30pm ET - ESPN

Winks: West Virginia was apparently close to a BCS game, which is a crime. The Big East was terrible this season, and yet they are still throwing crap UConn into the mix, while a team like Boise State is already done playing football!?!? Yeah, when I do exclamation points and question marks together, you know it's real. Let's give West Virginia the benefit of the doubt though, and go with them.

Lemmy:  Let's make one thing clear: North Carolina is a waaay better team than they are given credit for. The proof? How about a 3 1/2 point spread in favor of West Virginia. The Mountaineers put together another solid season and we mean no disrespect to their football team when we say that N.C. State is in a very good spot here. That said, N.C. State is in a very good spot here. Facing a relatively beat-up WVU club with a very sketchy history in bowl games, we are siding with the Wolf Pack of N.C. State.

Insight Bowl - #12 Missouri (10-2) vs. Iowa (7-5) - 10pm ET - ESPN

Winks: Let's talk about Iowa for a second. What a disappointment they were this season. At one point, they were 7-2 this season, with their only losses to the ranked Arizona State Wildcats and then our beloved Badgers. Then they did the unthinkable and lost to Northwestern. Then they lost to Ohio State. Then they lost to Minnesota!?!?! (the double punctuation again). I think that Iowa could win this game, and will put up a good fight, but ultimately I think Missouri is the better team and they'll get the victory.

Lemmy:  We are going to pull a Drew Magery here and talk about something completely off-topic when we are supposed to be using this space to write about a game. We still can't help but wonder how the Big Ten arrived at the conclusion that Leaders and Legends would fly as division names. We know this subject has already been beaten to death, and we know that they have already announced that they will likely take a mulligan on this one, but how does this even happen to begin with? If Northwestern didn't ruin this conference, we weren't sure anything could. Yet, here we are, watching the Big Ten slowly slip into insanity. Anyway, we doubt Iowa will be Leaders at the end of this game. The Hawkeyes have had a bit of a slide to end a once promising season, and while they are still a quality football team, Missouri is simply better. And sometimes, that's all that needs to be said.
