HATE BOWL 2008 CROWNS A CHAMPION!

And the winner of the 2008 NCAA Football HATE BOWL is......

NOTRE DAME


The Irish defeated Ohio State by a score of 15 to 6.  Our regular season champs have taken the trophy.

Keep an eye peeled for our next foray into the obscure..."Insignificant Bowl '08-'09", coming after the bowl selection special.  With WAY too many bowls being played, which ones should go away?  We'll find out in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned!

HATE BOWL 2008 CHAMPIONSHIP

THIS JUST IN....SCORE UPDATE AS OF 9:37AM SATRUDAY, NOVEMBER 22.  ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT TO VOTE FOR YOUR HATE BOWL CHAMPION!!!!

NOTRE DAME 11
OHIO STATE 4

Welcome back, my friends, to the hate that never ends!  It's time for the "Nine Pins" Bowling for Dollars HATE BOWL battle for the Trojan Condoms - Summer's Eve "You Bastard" Trophy.  I thought it might be appropriate to reiterate some of the pearls our posters gave us about our two finalists...Notre Dame and Ohio State.

chfhookm admitted he got help with his hate for tOSU when he shared:
Oh, did I forget to mention that Ray Small's dad made my picks for me?UKnowMoreThanMe shared the Buckeye hate with this gem:
Do they know that their mascot is a peanut butter ball dipped in chocolate?  I mean, how "manly" can you be if your mascot is a wanna-be Reese's Cup.But WesinID wasn't gonna let Notre Dame get overlooked.  Per Wes...
I hope they form a conference with Liberty University, Southern Methodist, and Brigham Young, call it the Battle of Armeggon Division (B.A.D)BlueSpud2 illustrated the debates we all went through in picking the hard match-ups with this comment:
As much as I hate the U of I, I really hate the possibility of OStU stinking up another BCS game again, NT or otherwise.  Besides
Idaho can't beat a fart to stink more less get to a bowl game.  A real travesity is having Ohio State on TV after Nov.

The round of 8 brought more interesting observations.  WoolyUte expressed his opinion of Notre Dame...
How can you not hate a team that doesnt play well with others, hired fat Charly and still struggles and enjoys being called Golden Domers... sounds like a 70's porno to me! lol I had haunting images of Weis with a "porno 'stache" for days.  And then SOMEBODY (PanzerKoenigin) mentioned something about a thong.  And I'm STILL not sleeping.

UtahUtesRGr8 gave us the "play-by-play" on the Notre Dame - Florida State game...
In a fairly one-sided game, the shopplifting convicts from Talahasee have amassed a record 26 personal fouls, but their superior speed and athletism has dominated play nonetheless.  Notre Dame is behind by three scores with 4 seconds to play, when Charlie Weiss calls for the Touchdown Jesus Hail Mary, which falls incomplete.  Nevertheless, as time runs out, ABC declares Notre Dame the winner.  Unbeknownst to even the most ardent college football fans, Notre Dame advances to the next round of all games based on their larger fan base and superior moral code.When WestlandUte chimed in with this I had much confidence in the Irish making the final.
As a person of Irish descent I am offended by the representation of my race as a bunch of belicose hooligans. I am also offended the mascot. What's up with the little Green Bast#%$ with the shalyley. If anyone disagrees with me you are codially invited to come to my place and I will punch you in the throat and piss on your dog.But alas, all of the hate didn't go Notre Dame's way.  byu sranje kura made this argument AGAINST tOSU's strength of schedule:
it's just too bad that they won't be able to get blown out 3 years in a row in the ncg.  I guess that's what they get for scheduling 1 good team this year.  Should have played Toledo instead of USC.  Guess there's always next year.So here we are.  The final round of HATE BOWL 2008.  Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls...Place your votes here!

WHO WILL IT BE.....

NOTRE DAME VS OHIO STATE



You be the judge.  I'll take votes through Sunday, November 23.

HATE BOWL 2008: THE "FOUL FOUR"

Well, here it is.  The final four...or "FOUL FOUR" as we say here at Hate Bowl Central.  The battle for the newly named "You Bastard Trophy" continues.

Yup, YBT won over "no trophy" by a mere two votes.  However, there were so many outstanding ideas for our award that I feel compelled to incorporate some aspect of each into our "corporate logo" design.  Which leads to another question:  should we look for a corporate sponsor?  Send me your ideas.  Something like The Summer's Eve Hate Bowl would be great.  I'll await your suggestions.

Well, here they are...now with ZERO Transfats!  Ohio State earns an upset win in the 2vs7 bracket, otherwise our "favorites" have pushed through.  YOUR HATE BOWL 2008 FOUL FOUR MATCH-UPS!!


SCORES UPDATED 6:00 PM ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19.  ONE MORE DAY UNTIL THE FINALS!!!


#1 Notre Dame vs #4 BYU  NOTRE DAME LEADS 12-9


#7 Ohio State vs #3 Miami  OHIO STATE LEADS 14-7



As always, you can submit your votes here in the comment thread.  Gotta pick both games...no partial ballots will be counted.  I'll give this four days to "ferment" and try to post our championship contest on Thursday, November 20.

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "HATE EIGHT"

My people, you have evidently seeded our contestants correctly.  Round Two of the Hate Bowl Playoffs is in the books, and our Unsweet 16 is now the Hate Eight.  In the round just completed, Notre Dame (23-4 over Washington), USC (25-2 over Oregon), and Ohio State (22-5 over Tennessee) all came through strong with double-digit wins.  As they say in Little Italy, " 'Atsa lotta HATE!"  Our closest game was Florida State's three point win over Florida .  I guess they had one that DIDN'T go wide right.

In any event, now it's time for Round Three...the "HATE EIGHT".  The rules are the same as before.  You must pick a larger lowlife in each pairing.  Incomplete ballots won't be counted.  Keep in mind that these matchups are based on the ORIGINAL SEEDING that resulted from our "regular season".  I take NO CREDIT for the USC-tOSU or BYU-Idaho pairings.  Wish I could!

There's one bonus to this round...our "Name The Trophy" contest.  The proposed names are listed at the bottom of the ballot.  Just give me your #1 pick.  

I'd like to finish this round by Sunday, November 16 so we can march this along and keep some interest.  That said, HEEEERE WE GO!!!

Pick the team you hate most in each pairing...

UPDATED STANDINGS AS OF 10:00pm ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14!!!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS "UNSWEET 16"

Well, well, well!  We're down to the round of 16 in our Hate Bowl 2008 Playoffs.  Interesting match-ups include one that's already been played on the field (BYU vs UCLA) and one that'll end the regular season in the Sunshine State (Florida vs Florida State).  All in all, there's a LOTTA hate to be had in these brackets. 

I'll set an initial target of Wednesday, November 12 for closing the "Unsweet 16".  Here are your match-ups.  Just post your selections in the comments under this blog.  As with last round, only complete ballots with ALL GAMES SELECTED will be counted.  No hanging chads allowed.

Enjoy!

HATE BOWL 2008 PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE

As Dr. Johnny Fever would say, "HERE IT IS, MY BABIES!"  What we've all been looking for.  Our top four seeds (Notre Dame, Miami, USC, and BYU) all drew a bye for the first round, since we had 28 schools "nominated".  As promised, we have some interesting match-ups...a backyard battle between Ohio State and West Virginia, a match-up featuring two teams destined to battle for the ACC Atlantic Division championship (FSU and Maryland), and a pairing of two teams who could potentially meet in this year's BCS National Championship (Penn State and Georgia...keep in mind that this is written before The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party). 

So here's how it works now.  I give you the matchups.  You give me your picks for each pairing.  By pick, I mean the teams you hate more than the other.  I know some of you won't have any particular feelings about some teams, but COME ON!  IT'S FOR FUN!  I'll set a target of closing out voting on Round One by Friday, November 7 (will move that up or back depending on when incoming votes die off)  So talk amongst yourselves and give me your best hate! 

HERE ARE YOUR FINAL RESULTS FOR ROUND ONE!!  ROUND TWO COMING SOON!!!

SCORES UPDATED AT 6:11PM THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6!!!

#5 Idaho vs #28 Ball State    (Idaho WINS 23-7)

#6 Michigan vs #27 Clemson   (Michigan WINS 21-9)

HATE BOWL UPDATE THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30

A few more votes in over the last day or so.  Sorry for not including an update on votes last evening, but alas I had a long night on call.

FYI I'm planning on seeding for 32 teams, so if we're short of that I'll offer "byes" to the top vote getters for the first round.  I hate doing that because ND, USC, etc draw a LOT of votes, but maybe we'll make that up on round 2.

Here are the standings so far (also listed in the comments and in the Hate Bowl 2008 message thread)  Number of votes listed in parentheses (if none listed, that school only had one so far):

Notre Dame (17)
USC (14)
Miami (13)
BYU (12)
Idaho (8)
Michigan (8)
Ohio State (7)
Florida (5)
Tennessee (4)
Florida State (4)
Auburn (4)
Alabama (3)
Oklahoma (2)
Georgia (2)
Utah (2)
Washington (2)
Iowa
Oregon
Penn State
UCLA
Colorado
