Bowl Projections

Postby Cujo » Sun Dec 03, 2017 7:53 pm

I'd pay money to watch maybe 2 of these games outside of the championship games (and I'm not saying I'd pay money to watch either of the championship games). FBS has it all wrong. The bowls made New Year's Day fun, but . . . if you want to do it right, do it like every other level of football and every other sport and have a full blown tournament. Four teams is for the birds. I'm much more interested in KSU/Sam Houston and Wofford/NDSu than I am most of these meaningless games. I'll watch the NCAA basketball tournament and teams I don't care about because the games matter and it is do or die. Playing a game for vacation is a nice reward for the players, but . . . when just about everybody gets a trophy/bowl, FBS starts looking like a rec league.

How to watch College Football Playoff unveiling on TV
In an imperfect world, absolute truth is divisive. There's no unity in truth. Decide then whether truth before unity or unity before truth?
