Well, so much for all the hoopla about how Cal was hosed out of the Rose Bowl, as they were pasted by Texas Tech last night in the Holiday Bowl: (23) Texas Tech 45, (4) California 31.

BTW, for the record, Texas beat Tech 51-21 this season.

Meanwhile, the Troy Trojans, in their first bowl game ever, jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead on Northern Illinois in the Silicon Valley Classic [if it is only 5 years old, how can it be a "Classic"-Ed.] and looked to be heading for a route, but couldn’t do much of anything after that, leading to a loss of 34-21. I watched the first half, but TiVo’d the rest (I am certainly glad I didn’t stay up to 2am to watch a loss–of course, it was pretty clear tht by the end of the 1st half that Troy was toast).

      Guess they weren’t ready for play in Pasadena, despite their whinin’
      The [No. 4 California] Golden Bears (10-2), who were 11 1/2 -point favorites, simply had no answer against the [No. 23 Texas Tech] Red Raiders (8-4) and their efficient spread offense, which uses four wide receivers most of the time….
