It’s Bowl Time

Yes, kiddies, it’s that time of the year again, when all our thoughts turn to college football bowls. Of course, everyone wants playoffs, but it’s not like the powers-that-be in college football give a hoot what the fans want, right?

Anyways, Bethany Stover has challenged me to out pick her on the bowls. Bethany actually thinks she has a chance?! I enter with a 43-14 record this year, but oh well, here goes nothing:

Random Thoughts….

The #1 ranked team in the nation not playing in the national championship game? Way to go, BCS! Hence, the Sugar Bowl is the “Fraudulent National Championship Game.”

All serious college football fans (except for only the most zealous Michigan fans) must be rooting for USC to win the Rose Bowl, which will hopefully signal Armageddon for the BCS.

Tennessee, ranked #6, playing in the Peach Bowl? That’s what you call getting screwed! If the Cotton Bowl had only been a little more patient, they could have had Tennessee vs. Texas! That game would have been as big as the BCS bowls!

Northern Illinois goes 10-2 and doesn’t get a bowl? Another great screw job.

The SEC may well go undefeated in the bowls this year. That would be awesome!
