College Bowl Season 2007-2008

The match-ups are set. Does anyone care? There should be one or two interesting games (Georgia vs. Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl is the one I'm most interested to see), but it's a rather ho-hum affair, and of course the championship game is like to annoy as many people as it pleases. But at least some will likely watch that. Does anyone whose job doesn't depend on the game, or whose children don't play on the teams, likely to pay the slightest bit of attention to the Orange Bowl? Virgina Tech vs. Kansas? It puts me to sleep thinking about it.

My hometown bowl game will be a monster match-up of 6-6 teams, Colorado vs. Alabama. What? They couldn't find a team with a winning record to take part in it? Not even 1 team?

Heh. My alma mater is going to a Tidy Bowl.

Mmmm - why is the old Citrus (now Capital One)Bowl a Tidy Bowl?

Ok, so the Orange bowl got the 3rd pick (after the Rose and Sugar) so why in the hell would they pick Kansas instead of WVU? Instead of having potentially the best bowl match-up this year, they have a complete snooze fest. I certainly won't be watching. Personally I think the BCS gods meddled with that one to prevent a conference match-up between OU and Kansas. And there are a lot of colossal mismatches. Michigan against Florida? Tebow will have 10 TDS.

Yep, there's hardly a good game in the whole set - though like I said I am intrigued by Georgia/Hawaii. WVU/Virginia Tech would obviously have been a more interesting game. And Virginia Tech/Missouri would've made more sense too (since Mizzou beat Kansas a few weeks ago). Really, who in the hell is going to turn on the tv for Virginia Tech/Kansas?

Tidy Bowl because you might as well flush it... bo-ring!
