Maybe it's the way offenses have opened up to the point where we see so many blowouts that become uninteresting or turn into those old WAC Thursday night games. Maybe it's because I'm so CU-centric that a 4-8 drags everything down for me. Maybe it's that a lot of the big rivalry games didn't have their usual luster (UF-FSU, ND-USC, OSU-UM, UT-OU) and we've also lost or are losing some great ones due to conference re-alignment (ND-UM, CU-NU, UT-aTm, FSU-Miami, NU-OU). Maybe it's that so many of the top-ranked teams this year played cupcake schedules. Maybe it's that we've been having freshmen win the Heisman, so there hasn't been the same build up of getting to know the stars. Maybe I'm just getting older, I don't like change as much, and sports isn't as important to me as it used to be. Or maybe it's a bit of all that. I don't know. The game just is less entertaining to me than it used to be and this year seemed especially snooze worthy. Other than the Auburn miracles, there's not much I can point to that was special.
