T.J. Simers, Los Angeles Times: Everyone was gushing about the Sun Bowl as if they were really happy to be spending several valuable days of their lives in this pit, especially given the headline across the front page of the El Paso Times: "Flu in EP, Spreading."
Paul Finebaum, Mobile Register: The most enjoyable story for Alabama fans in 2005? A tie between Dennis Franchione and Phillip Fulmer, each going 5-6.
