On the way home Valenti and Foster were doing the usual baiting Michigan fans into calling up since there are no ratings in talking MSU football.
The premise was would you root for MSU to help Mich get to the BCS? I don't care about that but based on all the diaries posted on here and the callers it does appear that a lot of fans do want to go to the BCS.
My question is why? Bowls hold very little interest for me. The only bowls that I find compelling are against top teams. I would much rather test ourselves against Arkansas than play Houston. If the BCS bid meant we were guaranteed to play Oklahoma, Oklahoma or Stanford than I would be fine with it, but Houston? Who wants that?
If you are not going to the game the only thing that matters about the bowl game is bragging rights and entertainment. Michigan does not need publicity. Come on it's Michigan! So I don't but that argument to go to the BCS
Let's look at the other factors.
Gametime- Advantage Citrus. 1:00 start day off work vs a midnight finish on a work night
Opponent- Advantage Citrus. Arkansas vs Houston Not even close. Plus a win gives us Seee Ceee bragging rights and continues our historical domination of them.
So to those of you that want to go to the Sugar Bowl can you explain why?
