Dope or Nope


When I was growing up (man, I sound like an old man!), the national championship of college football was basically determined on New Years Day. All of the major bowl games where played on this day, and it was a MAJOR happening. The Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl ... all on the same day. It was pure heaven for the college football fan.

But slowly, some of the major bowls began playing after New Years Day ... first it was the 2nd, then the third ... now, let's fast forward to this year ... the national championship game is being played on January 7! Really? January 7? 6 days after New Years day? Really?

Now, there's a huge discussion/argument going on regarding bowl games and the fact that college football doesn't have a playoff system ... that's an argument for another day. Personally, I enjoy bowl games. But, I also can envision bowl games in addition to playoffs (having my cake and eating it too). But, I digress ...

I don't know where you stand on bowl games after New Years Day. I strongly dislike this, and think college football should come to an end on New Years day. Call me a traditionalist. Call me old. I don't care. I absolutely HATE bowl games after New Years Day! And, don't get me started on bowl games on FOX. They don't even show college football during the season. It's almost as disgraceful as NBC showing only Notre Dame games (again, a topic for another day).

I just cannot get into College Football... I obviously have something wrong with me as I love watching NFL games and College Football is where the game is REALLY played. :P

Soccer is football.

American football is....well...pussies.

The British Lions Rugby Team (Rugby is way more similar to your football) offered 2 games to some Super Bowl winners. 1 American Football and 1 Rugby.

When the Superbowl winners realised the rugby game meant no padding they cried off.

Absolute pussies.

(Actually I do like American football. I'm just sulking cause The Dolphins are crap right now)

Nope for me. The bowl games are just too watered down like everything else in sports.

Heff said...

Four Dinners and Los : Geez, i thought I explained this in detail a month ago. Heff hasn't singled people out to lock out of my blog. I'm not currently posting on my blog, so I locked EVERYONE out.
The blog still exists in it's entirety, but it's inactive.

If I decide to blog again, you will be notified, lol !
