I was surprised to see ESPN actually rate the Bama vs Michigan game higher than most of the other dud bowl games they have this year. However, they got the Cotton and Rose Bowl games wrong; they are not even close to being better than Bama vs Michigan. The pre-determined selection criteria is a large contributor to killing fan interest in Bowl games...most of the Bowl games are just simply not interesting and hard to watch.

4. Cotton Bowl;
Penn State vs. Memphis
3. Rose Bowl;Oregon vs. Wisconsin

Remember that the Rose Bowl will have great ratings because it has a time slot all to itself on January 1st. Same with the Sugar Bowl that night.

The Citrus has to split viewers with the Outback, which is why they chose Alabama/Michigan. They needed a great match-up or they would lose viewers. Both of those games are on ESPN/ABC, so they don't care, but the Bowl does.

I am just glad that we didn't end up in the Cotton or Orange Bowl. It will be interesting to see if everyone plays. I was happy to see that Jeudy said he would be playing...
