    Default College bowl games

    Is anyone interested in any of the upcoming college bowl games?
    I normally could care less about college football, but will make an exception for Wisconsin vs. USC in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.
    My sister-in-law's daughter and her long time boyfriend are both members of the Wisconsin band, which will be performing. We are putting together an impromptu family gathering so all their families can escape the Minnesota winter for a bit.
    Should be fun. Though buying a dozen tickets to the Holiday Bowl will not be cheap.

    I don't care outside of the playoff 4. I'll watch those games and see how it all plays out. The rest? Hell, I think you can make the playoffs with like a 4-7 record. There's like 417 bowl games every year now!!

    There's this thing called the "bowl eligibility requirement" where you need to have a winning record with some other criteria IIRC but I read that there was a shortage of teams that met the requirement so of course it gets waived cause you got to play the games.

    And I don't like THAT. When it was the Cotton Bowl, the Orange Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, Sun Bowl and Rose Bowl they meant something. Now they're the Exxon-Mobil, Little Caesars and whoever the Hell else Bowls. You can be the lousiest team in the universe and go to a bowl game. They cheapened the sport, and the NCAA's playoff crap and criteria sucks. How could you do WORSE that the AP and coaches polls? They figured out how.

    I will probably watch the games just because there's nothing else on, but I have no vested interest in any team but Wisconsin. I hope they kick USC's ass just to ruin Gabby's day.

    You just gotta pull for SEC. Because it is the south.

    My conference doesn't even exist anymore. I'm from the Southwest. The SWC turned into the Big 8 South? No fun after Arkansas and Texas A&M left anyway. Wusses. And stupid. You can't win in the SWC so you go to the SEC?

    I'll watch the 'Bama game although I am an Auburn fan.
