The article is right on. Alabama doesn't want to go to Shreveport. Their the "super" jock who is now somebodys overweight and devorced old man. They remember the great years and the roar of the crowds but now they spend most of there time trying to get anybody to go out with them. Damn I love em but they break my heart.

32 bowls sure seems like a lot. Itís basically the same number of students as you might kind, as say, in a high school, especially if said high school is a large public one where education takes a backburner to football and the average SAT is about an 870 on the old scale. Each bowl, like each student, is unique, but comparable. Here now is each and every bowl and the kid from your high school you knew: What the hell is this guy talking about? Thirty-two kids is the same number of students I might find in a football powerhouse high school? Try 3,200, maybe. He lost me there.

I think he meant all the members of the football team in every bowl game is the same amount as the amount of students in a high school.

You may be right, YYM, but that was about as clear as Santhi Soudarajan's gender.

Ya just had to get back to Soudarajan, didn't ya fraze?

What if blogs all went to high school together? "Rich Kotite Banged Your Mom" would be an obnoxious, immature freshman.

I have to say I thought I was a pretty big sports fan but I had literally never heard of the International Bowl, which is on January 6 for the record not "mid-January and after all of the BCS bowls" as the article implies. Still as freakish as the kid in the corner with the trench coat if you ask me.

The International Bowl and the GMAC Bowl are annoying the shit out of me. January 1st and the days after it have traditionally been the dates when the big bowl games were played, all leading up to the final game that theoretically would decide the national championship (the BCS is crap, I know). However, with the National Championship game being even later, the NCAA feels the need to throw in some crap bowls to fill up space. Who wants to watch the International Bowl, especially with it being in Toronto. Now don't get me wrong because I have nothing against Toronto, but it doesn't make much sense to host a bowl game there when there isn't a single D-1 team that is in Canada. Lastly, who in their right mind wastes an evening watching Ohio University vs. Southern Mississippi?

YYM, I hate to admit it, but I'm that guy. If it is a football game, and it's televised, I will watch it. (I'm even worse with college basketball.) For the record, the answer is yes, I'm single and live alone, and SpoFi is my homepage.

In that case I recommend watching 24.

You must not have seen Toronto's march on city hall where they demanded a third rate bowl game. After a message like that how could the NCAA not oblige. You don't mess with Toronto. If they want college football, they get college football. p.s. If you're really watching the fifth best Big East team vs. the third best MAC team play a bowl game in a foreign country one night, I have another suggestion. Pornography. on preview...FOX is obviously scared of the international bowl not premiering 24 on that night and all.

Where do people find the time to write and maintain blogs?
