Biased Bowl Blusterings - Charlie Pants Edition


I'm working on my own - very important - Biased Bowl picks for the upcoming bowl season (this year, I'm thinking we're going to throw out the subjective blatherings and focus on tangible, reliable facts - that is, cute/good lookingness).

But, in the meantime, I thought I'd offer a few picks from one of my junior associates - Charlie (speaking of cuteness), my 2 year old godson. He is a big fan of "FOOTBAW!" so I asked his opinion on a few key games -

He has an affinity for Tigers, in general - and he had some very emphatic choices...

EagleBank Bowl
Wake Forest vs. Navy

Charlie’s pick: Navy

magicJack St. Petersburg
Memphis vs. South Florida

Charlie’s pick: Memphis

Pioneer Las Vegas
BYU vs. Arizona

Charlie’s pick: BYU

San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia
Boise State vs. TCU

Charlie’s pick: Boise State

Sheraton Hawaii
Hawaii vs. Notre Dame

Charlie’s pick: Hawaii

Meineke Car Care
West Virginia vs. North Carolina

Charlie’s pick: unc (much to my dismay)

Champs Sports
Wisconsin vs. Florida State

Charlie’s pick: Wisconsin (whew!)

Emerald
Miami (Fla.) vs. California

Charlie’s pick: Miami

Papajohns.com
NC State vs. Rutgers

Charlie’s pick: NC State

Valero Alamo
Missouri vs. Northwestern

Charlie’s pick: Missouri

Roady's Humanitarian
Maryland vs. Nevada

Charlie’s pick: Maryland

Pacific Life Holiday
Oklahoma State vs. Oregon

Charlie’s pick: Ok State


Bell Helicopter Armed Forces
Houston vs. Air Force

Charlie’s pick: Houston

Brut Sun
Oregon State vs. Pittsburgh

Charlie’s pick: “Hamper” - Your guess is as good as mine - I guess he couldn't bring himself to fully endorse the Panthers.

Gaylord Hotels Music City
Boston College vs. Vanderbilt

Charlie’s pick: Boston College - Wait a minute. Is he picking the first team every time?

Insight
Kansas vs. Minnesota

Charlie’s pick: “Joe Pa” - Probably he was repeating "Jayhawks" - but when you think about it - they're sorta synonymous.

Chick-fil-A
LSU vs. Georgia Tech

Charlie’s pick: “Tiger Jacket” - He was getting a little bored - don't call PETA.

Outback
South Carolina vs. Iowa

Charlie’s pick: South Carolina


Capital One
Georgia vs. Michigan State

Charlie’s pick: “bullpig

Rose Bowl Game Presented by Citi
Penn State vs. USC

Charlie’s pick: Nittany Lions. Princess Nittany Lions. Honestly, that was his answer. He loves PSU - and "Princess" (he has 2 older sisters) is by far the greatest compliment/superlative he could ever bestow.

FedEx Orange
Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech

Charlie’s pick: Cincinnati - He was really adamant about this one.

AutoZone Liberty
Kentucky vs. East Carolina

Charlie’s pick: ECU

Allstate Sugar
Utah vs. Alabama

Charlie’s pick: Bama -

Tostitos Fiesta
Ohio State vs. Texas

Charlie’s pick: tosu - I asked him twice - and that's his pick.

FedEx BCS National Championship Game
Florida vs. Oklahoma

Charlie’s pick: Florida - without a doubt. Although, when asked, he did say that Penn State would beat the Gators in a head-to-head.

Apparently he too is an advocate of a playoff.
