    I HATE this post-New Year's Day bowl game garbage. I don't mind the concept of the "Championship" game being played the Saturday after New Year's Day. This spread out the BCS bowls into primetime (sorry boys, no watching the bowls for you... school tomorrow) through the week and ****ty little bowl game stuff sprinkled in between is rediculous.

    Remember when being in a New Year's bowl was a big deal? Now even the toilet bowl in after the new year. Also, moving the Cotton Bowl off of New Year's Day is stupid. If you are going to so screw up the bowls, just make it a play off and get it over with. :argh:

    A National Championship Game on January 10th is problematic in my opinion.

    This. I don't mind if the title game is 2 or 3 days after, but 9 is just stupid.

    I was looking for the Cotton Bowl yesterday, totally forgot they moved it. Jan. 7th is stupid for that game imo.

    Don't like. It was much more enjoyable when the Sugar was on NYE and the Cotton, Rose, & Orange were on the 1st. Now, there are a bunch of lower tier bowls on New Years Day, and the big'uns hop along in random order for several more days - with more lower tier bowls being played after the 1st.

    After the 1st, I could care less that two 7-5 teams are playing on Jan. ??, in the FannyMae Condemned Building bowl.

    Jan 9 makes the university presidents claim to represent the "integrity" of the scholar-athlete vs. a playoff utterly hypocritical and nonsensical with conference championship games tacked onto the fall semester. they've extended the season 2-3 weeks while simultaneously claiming a playoff doing the same thing is a crime against the scholar-athlete.

    every game should have been played already and they should have the championship on wednesday and be done with it. Its funny how the presidents always use that the players will miss to much school yet they are playing later and later every year.

    Only the National Championship Game is acceptable after New Year's Day (unless NYD is on a Sunday and they shift everything to the 2nd).

    The only reason the Cotton is so late this year is to celebrate its 75th anniversary and give it a slot all to itself.

    One of the main reasons these bowl games are so spread out, particularly the BCS ones, is because they want each of the BCS ones to have their own dedicated timeslot. Which is why the BCS games are all given to one network, so they won't conflict with any of the other BCS games. And now ESPN carries all but 2 of the overall bowl games so they have things spread out even more as far as the overall bowl schedule is concerned.

    But I completely agree with all the previous posts about bowl games taking place after Jan. 1. Playing a major bowl game after Jan. 1st, on a weekday night is just wrong.

    And why do they always insist on playing the NC game on a weeknight when about 90% of the working population has to get up early the next day? This is one of my biggest peeves with the current bowl system. Play it on a Friday night, or work with the NFL to play on the Saturday of wild-card weekend. The NFL games don't start until 4:30 Eastern anyways, so have 3 games that day - 2 playoff games and the NC game.

    A crappy bowl in an even crappier stadium get's its own special day to celebrate its crappyness...Yay.
    Do we really need more evidence that bowls are out of control and rapidly losing their meaning?

    in the old days, there was a reason the Cotton Bowl was at 10:00 AM or whenever.....hangover thirty. you weren't even lucid until about the 2nd half or when the Rose Bowl started.....the SWC conference had some good times but was usually down the pecking order when it came to determining the national champ. it's big bad bully went without a NC from 1970 to 2005. so, so what?

    This should epitomize this thread: the GoDaddy.com Bowl is being played on Thursday night between Middle Tennessee and Miami of Ohio.

    If that's not a :wtf: then I don't know what is!

    Far from a crappy bowl, but I've been lucky enough to have access to the bowl committee several times. They are a great committee but I know it's in Texas so boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

    I'm sure Jerry Jones had something to do with it.

    Well if all the Bowls are like the Sugar Bowl then I don't mind. In the old days - there were only a few bowls, so they were clustered around New Years Day. Now there are so many they have to spread them out. Another reason is for ESPN and ABC to make a lot of money.

    It really does not bother me...

    It sucks when they are 1)not on broadcast TV, 2)not on during non-working hours, and 3)matching up teams that have no business being in major bowls anyway.

    I have to admit that I was happy I could see both the Orange and Sugar Bowls in their entirety. In the old days, I'd have to switch back and forth. Those were a couple of fantastic football games this year, and both deserved their own time slot.

    Yeah, but if you are a stanford fan and work normal office hours, you cannot catch the game in its entirety because it starts before you get home from work. Aaaand, if you happen to not have cable, you're ****ed even worse.

    :stupid: I know people who are off between Christmas and New Years love the day games, but I hate them. Every year there is at least one game I really want to see that's on at like 1 on a Tuesday afternoon. AFA has been in a bowl like 3 years straight and I've yet to see a minute of any of them.
