Everyone in college football world is worried about the big dick swinging College Football Playoffs. There’s only room for 4 teams, and chances are your team (except Kmess) didn’t make the playoffs.
Your team either sucked so bad, it didn’t make a bowl game, or was just good enough to get a bowl you never heard of. Luckily for me, my team is in a respectable bowl game (Citrus Bowl). In reality bowl games are participation bowl games. Yes, you had a great season, but not great enough to get a shot at a National Championship.
It might not be the “Hey, look how good I am” playoffs, but it’s better than some other bowls.
Utah State (-8) vs North Texas Saturday, December 15 @ 2:00pm
Of all the great states in this beautiful country, how did New Mexico get a bowl game named after it? New Mexico is on the bottom half of states I want to visit in my life. Hell, it might be bottom 2 with Idaho. Best things to come out of New Mexico are ‘Breaking Bad’ and the atomic bomb. Great bowl games, not so much.
Marshall (-2.5) at South Florida Saturday, December 20 @8:00pm
I got really excited when I saw the sponsor. That excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I realized it was ‘Bad Boy Mowers’ and not ‘Bad Boy Club’.
Could you imagine the swag bag players would receive if it was sponsored by ‘Bad Boy Club’? Alabama would be itching to get into that bowl.
California (EVEN) vs TCU Saturday, December 26 @ 9:00pm
Now here is a bowl game I can get behind. I LOVE Cheez-Its. You go into my kitchen, you’ll find at least 6 boxes. My favorite is Extra Toasty. If I was going to play in this bowl game, I’d be praying for a swag bag full of Cheez-Its. This bowl game will be wasting my time if the trophy isn’t a massive wheel of cheese on top of pillars.
It’s totally absurd that D1 football doesn’t follow suit with the rest of NCAA football (D2, D2, and FCS).
