    Re: Bowl Season this far

    i'd have to say this has been a pretty weak bowl season. I love football and watch all of them however the awful play by some of these teams was hard to swallow. Thats a direct result of having too many teams though. I remember when there were actually some good teams playing good football before Jan 1

    Bowl Season this far

    To me it's all about the match ups although you can run out of decent teams at some point.

    Re: Bowl Season this far

    Capital One Bowl and Sugar Bowl were the best so far in my opinion. I didn't see the Rose Bowl, but I heard there was a lot of defense in that one. Outback Bowl was good as well.

    Overall it's not the best year for bowl games, but it's pretty good. I think if they limited the number of bowl games anywhere from 12-15, it would be a lot more interesting and entertaining.

    Re: Bowl Season this far

    I for one like a lot of bowl games because of what has already been said that after Monday January 7th we won't have anymore college football to enjoy until I think the end of August. It is a very long off season. I would have liked seeing better match ups in some of the bowl games though. Roll Tide!

    Sugar Bowl? Seriously. That was a massacre. Final score did not indicate how that game went.

    That's the reason I liked it, because many people thought Florida would just glide through to a victory. I was surprised to see Louisville take it to the Gators. Also I have family and friends who are Louisville fans and they were pretty happy with the win.

    Re: Bowl Season this far

    The games have been better than I expected starting New Year's eve. However I don't like the scheduling this week. Sugar and Fiesta were two games I really wanted to watch but couldn't stay up for because I get up early for work. Tomorrow when I can stay up late, I get to watch Pitt vs. Ole Miss... boring. At least tonight's Cotton Bowl has been pretty entertaining thus far.

    The Chick-Fila-a bowl and Outback have been the best games. The Capital One bowl was pretty good as well. The others have been terrible. Tonights has been entertaining.

    Most of the pre-Jan 1 games were very entertaining and came down to the last minute.

    Re: Bowl Season this far

    I watch in large part to see how teams performed which have played our opponent. That would be, unless I've forgotten one, Stanford, USC and OK. Only Stanford acquitted itself well. The only common opponent was Mich., and we know how that turned out. There's only so much to be drawn from comparative scores, but, so far, I like what I've seen...
