Preseason Projected 2007-08 Bowl Match-Ups

Yeah, yeah...we’ve read all the blog comments about the absurdity of forecasting bowl match-ups out this far. Let’s face it..."expert" projections are made based on number of returning starters, coaching turnovers, expected decline/improvement of teams based on experience or lack thereof, players coming back from prior season injuries, increase/decrease in strength of schedule, yada yada yada. But you all know as well as Vindy does that there will be turnovers, upsets, blown officiating calls, injuries, off-the-field "issues"and possibly random acts of nature that will impact the anticipated progression of the season.

THE WEBER KID’S 2007-08 PRESEASON BOWL MATCH-UPS

(Selected via taping school names to the bottom of 119 rubber ducks and pulling them outta’ the bubbling jacuzzi at random until all 64 bowl slots were filled...OK, maybe we put a little more into it than that.)

Wow, I didn't know all those games had corporate names attached to them now (not being a football fan, unlike the rest of your readers). That's very annoying. Then again, maybe I should get some corportate sponsorship for the major events of MY life. I could have had the Redhook/Cuervos Kris Weber 40th Birthday Party. Damn! But I guess it's not too late for the Ben Gay/ Ex-Lax Kris Weber 60th Birthday Party, etc...
