Dook bowl game described as meaningless contest between mediocre teamsThese folks know what they are talking about:
Someone finally telling it like it is.Believe us, you won't be missing a thing if you tune out what will soon be running virtually nonstop on your plasma screen, in all its high-def ugliness. This is nothing more than a bunch of meaningless contests between mediocre teams, a lineup that that makes "Honey Boo Boo" look like "Downton Abbey."[/quote][quote]Call it Must-Miss TV. The guys who run the system clearly take us as nothing but a bunch of suckers, willing to watch whatever drivel they put before us as long they attach the word "bowl" to some product they're pushing.A dozen teams received bowl bids with records of 6-6, which is often the sort of mark that gets a coach fired, not earns his team a trip at the holidays. (Or, in the case of Purdue, was bowl-worthy AND got the coach fired).
In fact, there are two games matching a pair of 6-6 teams â€” Rice vs Air Force in the Armed Services Bowl at Fort Worth (sorry, our men and women in uniform) and Pittsburgh vs. Ole Miss in the BBVA Compass Bowl at Birmingham.
When those kind of teams get together, they're hoping you throw out the record book.
Instead, you should change the channel.[/quote]

There's no better time to start than now.
Happy Bowl Season! Now, go do something else.
