    The first two bowls are today: New Mexico Bowl (Fresno State vs. Wyoming) and St. Petersburg (UCF vs. Rutgers).

    I have no opinion on today's games, but here's a couple of headlines to get things rolling ...

    1. NCAA investigating USC running back Joe McKnight's use of a Land Rover registered to a Santa Monica businessman:

    2. Florida reinstates Carlos "Sleepy" Dunlap:

    Here's the complete bowl schedule, by the way:

    Not to call them out, but the production crew from the Wyoming-Fresno game (can you tell I'm snowed in?) has been struggling so far. They flashed up a graphic with "Firstname lastname" in it and another one with zero turnovers for Fresno right after they lost the fumble.

    It's cute how they're trying to sell us the Fiesta Bowl right now. Uh-huh, sure, guys.

    Beef O'Brady's blows entire marketing budget on St. Petersburg Bowl. Signs contract too late to be name sponsor this year. Probably will be out of business next year when it rolls back around. Take THAT, magicjack!

    And Wyoming shows you what happens when you quit trying to score and settle for a long FG.

    On to double OT.

    Christ, dude, give it a rest. Unless you want to tell the Fiesta Bowl that they were obligated to take a team they didn't want to pair with TCU so you could have your wet dream Florida-Boise game.

    At least there'll be a break until March, when everyone starts whining that the mid-majors got screwed on tournament selections, like has happened every year here, regardless of whether there's a case.

    Huge first year for former Mizzou OC Dave Christensen at Wyoming. And that was one hellacious goalline stand

    Best goal line stand of the bowl season. I promise to stand by this statement come Jan. 8, too....

    Ah, but the question that went unasked by ESPN's talent ... why didn't Fresno go for the field goal?
