Northern Illinois had no business in the Orange Bowl...it was like Hawaii in the Sugar the one year where Georgia PWNED them.
I disagree slightly.
I think they shouldn't have ever jumped up that many spots to earn a spot to begin with, but they did.
They certainly were out of their league, but they put up a much better fight than Hawai'i did vs GA. Granted FSU isn't a world beater, and Oklahoma was far more deserving, but I am looking forward to the A&M OU match-up that resulted from this.
I also think the Big 10 has been impressive this bowl season. Moranis mentioned they have the worst WP, but they all played far better than anyone could have expected.
Minn hanging in there with Texas Tech, losing by only a FG.
Wisconsin hanging with Cuse, losing by only 6.
Michigan almost beating SC.
Nebraska tied with Georgia after 3.
Mich St beating TCU.
All things considered, I don't think the B1G was nearly as bad as everyone had been saying all season.
