The Peach Bowl will be my official Bowl Retirement...It will be the last Bowl game I attend..Why? First a little context..Over the decades Ive been to them all..Multiple Rose Bowls, Sugar Bowl, Orange and Fiesta even the 1981 Bluebonnet Bowl In Houston along with the multiple Citrus, Outback and Gator Bowls and all the others. In fact Id hazard a guess that Ive attended more bowl games than probably anyone on this board.
I used to watch every single bowl but the last 10 yrs or so I only watched the major games because the rest were just crappy and meaningless
Back then Bowls MEANT something..Players didnt sit them out and nobody left early..A bowl game was SPECIAL there werent that many and the stadiums were packed.
I spent alot of money on tickets travel food etc etc etc but it was worth every penny..Not any more.The bowls have become completely meaningless played in 3/4 empty stadiums and nobody really cares anymore.
The Bowl games just dont justify the expenses anymore especially when the team on the field isnt the team on the field during the regular season..Oh yeah i know the argument about more practice time etc etc..Making a Bowl game used to be a accomplishment but not anymore so The Peach Bowl will be my last..Just not worth it anymore.
For those who think the CFP is a good thing, well it isnt..its still a Mythical title when the Conference Champions of one of the top 2 leagues in the country doesnt even qualify and not just once but 3 times..its a sham a scam and this system is desinged to favor the SEC...the SEC got 4 teams in the big Bowl games FOUR! This system just continues to perpetuate the SEC Myth and will continue to do so until a true playoff is instituted
So I will go to the Peach Bowl..but now Im not all that excited about as I once was . I will cheer for the Wolverines but win or lose its going to be ho hum one way or the other..The Bowl system is DEAD
