Leave your own word associations in the comment thread. Should be a great bowl season for the B1G.
Also, I used Winston Churchill quotes. Last year I did paraphrased Vince Lombardi quotes. Quotable figures are amazing for all kinds of inspiration or comedy.
ed note: I bolded some of the more inspired efforts. - gf
Cotton Bowl: MSU v. Alabama
MNWildcat: Level of insufferable for Sparty to aspire to.
Graham Filler: Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
Babaoreally: Playoffs not layoffs, my plan for a better USA.
Jesse: Saban's past gets murdered by Saban's present.

Rose Bowl: Iowa v. Stanford
MNWildcat: 9/10 chance Stanford Band show is about corn.
Graham Filler: The price of greatness is responsibility.
Babaoreally: Kirk and I are no longer Ferentz.
Jesse: Bruising. Absolutely bruising.
LPW: Transitive Property: Iowa curbstomped NU, which beat Stanford. Therefore, Iowa will beat Stanford
Stew: Stanford's defense isn't as good as it typically has been. Lots of manball. Iowa wins if it wins the turnover battle.
Citrus Bowl: Michigan v. Florida
MNWildcat: Thump. Dead. Thump. Dead. Thump. Dead.
Graham Filler: The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.
Babaoreally: Umm. Uff.

LPW: Khakis vs Jorts.
Stew: If Michigan can get some guys back from injury, they're far more balanced.

MNWildcat: Urbz to Kell: Transubstantiate deez nuts.
Graham Filler: If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.
Babaoreally: Why do they call it South Bend when its in the northern part of the state?
Jesse: Pope Urban puns? I don't know...
LPW: Urban devilishly torments his former employer

Holiday Bowl: Wisconsin v. USC
MNWildcat: "Troy" > "On Wisconsin"
Graham Filler: I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.
Babaoreally: Drunk fans vs team whose coach was fired for being drunk
Jesse: sneaky good game between two good not great squads
LPW: Fuck U$C.
Stew: USC is better than their record, but they have no defensive coaches. Stave's swan song.
Taxslayer Bowl: Penn State v. UGA
MNWildcat: Two fanbases who constantly believe they deserve better. Pass.
Graham Filler: Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
Babaoreally: Taxslayer, more like Sax Player
Jesse: Franklin's experience will prepare him for this, right? Right...
LPW: Richt should be coaching that game.

Jesse: Basketball on grass!!! Kinda.
LPW: Duke's not that hard. Indiana should run them off the field
Stew: TEAM CHAOS, going to be a fun game. Bet the over.
Foster Farms Bowl: Nebraska v. UCLA
MNWildcat: Foster Farms loves them some 8-loss bowl teams!
Graham Filler: If you're going through hell, keep going.
Babaoreally: Farm bowl for Neb seems right.
Jesse: I keep waiting for Adidas to make bad uniforms for this.
Stew: No idea what to make of it. Both teams are kinda unpredictable.
