Football Bowl Season is upon us

Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl  

It's not the Granddaddy, but its a start.

I can watch almost any NCAA football game.  I love our basketball team, but I can't watch just any NCAA basketball game.

I feel sorry for you then, because this Villanova v Kansas game is better than any bowl game today.  It also means more to our season than the bowl games today mean to our football team.

I watched enough of the Div II playoff game last night between NDSU and SDSU (NTSDSU) to firmly believe that NDSU would beat any of the Div 1 teams playing this weekend.  If I miss them today, I'm not really going to care...

I am a super fan of college football, but the early bowl games are unwatchable. Perhaps I’d feel different had we defeated OSU, though. Losing to them just makes me not want to watch any football until our bowl game.

So last weekend was Army vs Navy

The weekend before was the conference title games

If they started an 8 team playoff, it would start today. This would generate significant revenue for the NCAA and four more schools. If you wanted to keep the other bowls, you still could. 

Wonder how many years in a row Bama vs Clemson will still be appealing ?

Does it even take a winning record to make it into a 'bowl' anymore?  I think last year at least one 5-6 team made it in.  About the only thing these early games are good for is background noise whilst wrapping Christmas presents.
