Your Starting Line-Ups
The college football bowl line-up is set....get ready for the start of 35 bowl games as we head to Pasadena.
The most important post-season game is the BCS national championship game, and this year it is of the Southern Fried Football™ variety as Florida State & Auburn play for the crystal.
The Noles have been blowing everybody out and they will play a team of destiny in the Auburn Tigers.
We all remember the miracle win against Georgia and the greatest college football ending in a staggering victory against Bama.....Auburn has been lucky and good.
Thanks to Michigan State's win in the Big Ten championship game over previously #2 ranked Ohio State, the Auburn Tigers said "thank you, very much", and moved over the Buckeyes and right into the BCS title game.
I'm looking forward to being out in Pasadena for the game and festivities......I'll be hosting our SiriusXM show from California.
I stated after FSU's destruction of Clemson back in October that the Noles were the best looking team that I've seen in person....nothing has changed since the trip to Death Valley.....I like FSU to close out the BCS era with a win in the final BCS title game.
I love college football, but I don't like what the sport turns into during the post-season.
There are too many games involving too many "OK teams".......Next year we add even more garbage as the bowl game total jumps to 39 games.
If I were in charge of college football, there would be a couple of changes I'd make to the post-season:
There are roughly a dozen bowl games this year that I look forward to watching.....the other 23 bowls can be added to the holiday fruit cake.
Ironically, once you separate the 5 BCS bowls.....there are only 4 match-ups of ranked teams in the remaining 30 non-BCS bowls.....that's pathetic.
One more note....props to the ACC for making history. The conference is the first to ever place 11 teams in post-season bowls....not even the SEC can lay claim to that one.
I watched some of the NASCAR season ending awards show on FOX Sports 1......I know, I was the only guy watching FOX Sports 1 last week......but comedian Jay Mohr roasted Danica Patrick.
It was hilarious.....and of course she was a total bitch about it.
The only thing that was disappointing was that Mohr eventually backstroked afterwards and claimed he was a huge fan and then sucked up to the most overhyped athlete on the planet......come on, Jay....stick to your guns.
The Carolina Panthers laid an egg in the Big Easy.
I had a funny feeling the New Orleans Saints were going to be nasty after being humiliated the previous week by Seattle.
The win by the Saints puts them atop the NFC South over Carolina....but there is a return match between the two coming up in a few weeks in Carolina.
How great were the NFL snow games on Sunday?
I loved watching all the games, and it got me thinking about the upcoming Super Bowl.
If your favorite team made it to the Super Bowl in NY/NJ....would you like it if the game was played in the snow and ice?
Personally, I want to see the best players in the world play in perfect conditions......there is a chance for too much goofy, unpredictable nonsense to take place when you get snow and ice.
Regular season games, no problem.....but for a championship game, I want the conditions to be perfect.
The Farmer's Almanac predicts a crazy storm for the Super Bowl this year....so get prepared.
