New years day football ruined

thank you BCS and the SEC. It was so great when the college season ended on Jan 1 with the Orange bowl and many of the games meant something. Now they mean nothing.

2. Wake me up when it is over. Yawn.

 

So glad this is the last year, at least for the main bowls.

I have no idea how the other bowl games make any money. The stands usually have 5000 people in them and the teevee audience can't be very big.

8. Good Question

And there's what, 40 bowl games or something. There was one game on and the ad showed the teams' records. Their combined record was 15 and 11 and they're playing a bowl game. Really?

9. Evidently it can be good fund-raising from alumni

 

But most of these games are the sort of thing only a mother or a real addict could watch.

When you get to the top 8 or 10 teams there might be some interest. The Alabama/Colorado game had some interest because one figures there are a few players in that game that will be on NFL rosters soon. But even so, it isn't particularly interesting to watch teams that can't even make a basic tackle.

3. I have to admit, I liked the old way. Truthfully, I'm just not that much into spectator sports

nowadays. Lots of reasons for feeling that way, but the BCS is part of it.

4. Yeah, and get off my lawn!

Seriously, I agree 100%. And I was shocked that the Rose Bowl, featuring #4 vs. #5, wasn't even on network TV in many markets in Big Ten country. Maybe if there were an SEC team playing...

I'm supposed to be watching the Orange Bowl now and anticipating a ridiculous halftime show... *hmph*

5. ESPN has rights to all BCS bowls

Be sure to tune in and watch Oklahoma lose to Alabama (an SEC team) on ESPN.
Also catch Auburn (an SEC team) play against FSU in the tile game on ESPN.

I seriously can't believe how biased and full of shit people can be.
