    Bowl season kicks off today, so discuss all bowl games here so the football board is not cluttered with individual threads.

    I should be pumped, but the playoffs make the bowls seem so irrelevant and eroded all excitement that used to come during bowl season.

    But hey, at least we have a deterministic system for crowning a "national champ", so it must all be good. I hope that everyone who was clamoring for a playoffs is happy over what they got.

    Hokie, 80% of the bowls are irrelevant outside of the teams' fanbases. You really need to stop acting like the playoff is a sign of the apocalypse.

    I don't know why people hate bowl games so much. It's still football and soon there will be no games for months.

    Yep, love the bowls. It's like bonus football before it goes away for a long while.

    And watching Nevada makes me wish we were actually running the pistol like MM said he would. I wonder if/when he'll get back to that idea.

    I love bowl season. I also love that they wised up to get more games back on or around 1/1.

    I'm still having to remind myself that the playoff games are only a week and a half away. Waiting till the 7th or whatever for the BCS was ridiculous.

    I love bowl season as well. A chance to see unique matchups and teams not usually given a national stage.

    CSU versus Utah. I am cheering for the Rams...they are a Colorado team and I think those kids have done a nice job.

    Also cheering for Air Force today.

    I'm favoring the Utes. CSU needs no more reasons to be uppity.

    Think CSU has more to play for and Utah will treat it as a consolation prize and not show up.

    Can't cheer for the rams today. Pac needs to be dominant in post season play.

    Yep. They also seem to be gloating over the fact their coach got hired away. They need a reality check.

    I'm hoping for a Pac12 bowl sweep this year. More prestige leads to more coverage, better recruits and bigger media deals.

    I picked K-State over UCLA, but have all the others winning. UCLA is just too inconsistent and Grandpa always seems to have his team ready to play.

    This. Utes need to take care of business.

    Two of my favorites are the Holiday and Peach, aka Chick-Fil-A bowl. They seem to be good games every time.

    If you look at the history of the Holiday Bowl, there are a remarkable number of 1 point margins-of-victory. It's a great bowl.

    Yep I remember when we played UDub in it, we won 33-21 I think. Freaking Corey Dillon was their rb.

    With one of the Huard's at QB, Olin Kruetz at C, I just remember their roster was loaded and the broadcasters would not shut up about it. I think that was the game MauMau had a interception(or fumble?) return and he high stepped in for a td.

    Want to see the Utes do well but I think CSU beats them up today. Utes just are not very good.

    This is one of those games that is hard to read. Utes should win, especially with sparkles gone. Just depends on who wants it more. These schools do have some bad blood from not too long ago being conference mates.

    CSU-Pueblo plays Minnesota State in the Div II Championship game at 2:00 on ESPN2. That might be somewhat interesting. The DE from CSU-P might end up in the NFL as a late draft choice or a FA. Go T-Wolves !!

    Not sure how well they did in the regular season, but Nevada's offense could not get anything going today.

    I think Butch Jones is doing something creative with his hair.

    Agree 100%, who would be excited about any of these bowls even if there wasn't a playoff? Get over it already dude.
