HAPPY NEW YEAR FOOTBALL OPEN THREAD

It's 2013, but Brady Hoke is still not impressed. - Jamie Sabau

Happy New Year! Get over your hangover by watching the Big Ten get drilled in a bunch of bowl games!

Happy New Year, bros and broettes! I hope you had an enjoyable New Year's Eve, whatever you did last night.

2012 was a pretty good year for BHGP, even if it was a pretty forgettable year for Iowa sports in general. Let's hope 2013 is even better for BHGP -- and less soul-suckingly awful for Iowa sports (or at least Iowa football; the other sports we care about were more in the "good, not great" realm). It sure would be nice if we had an Iowa game to talk about on January 1, 2014... dare to dream, right?

Anyway, there's football aplenty on tap today (all times CT):

11am GATOR BOWL: #20 Northwestern (9-3) vs. Mississippi State (8-4) (ESPN2)
11am HEART OF DALLAS BOWL:
Purdue (6-6) vs. Oklahoma State (7-5) (ESPNU)
12pm OUTBACK BOWL: #18
Michigan (8-4) vs. #10 South Carolina (10-2) (ESPN)
12pm CAPITAL ONE BOWL: #16
Nebraska (10-3) vs. #7 Georgia (11-2) (ABC)
4pm ROSE BOWL:
Wisconsin (8-5) vs. #6 Stanford (11-2) (ESPN)
7:30pm ORANGE BOWL: #15
Northern Illinois (12-1) vs. #12 Florida State (11-2) (ESPN)

The usual rules of open threads apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no slurs, no politics, etc.

How will the Big Ten go? I'm sticking with my 0-5 prediction.
