Penn State- an excellent performance against Michigan State and of course now PSU will be taking on what looks to be USC in the Rose Bowl. I think this is where they belong, because I do not think they are exactly up to par with the Floridas and Oklahomas of the world. USC is good, but I think Penn State has a great chance of winning this game. Joe Pa's teams always play well in their bowl games and I expect the team to respond big time.
Devils- The winning streak came to an end against the Penguins big time. The Pens dominated from the get go and showed that at this point in time they are the better team. With guys starting to get healthy as long as the Devils can just keep beating the teams that they should beat they should be in decent enough position to still make a playoff run when Marty returns.
Red Sox- not much to say here other than I hope that the Sox do everything in their power to bring Jason Varitek back. He is the captain of this team and he is so good at calling games behind the plate. Maybe his offense has diminished, but he is the leader of this team and one of the reasons why the Sox have had so much pitching success in recent years.
