"Do not make permanent decisions on the basis of temporary emotions."
Apparently indefinitely. PW has been complaining about the system since I've known him, so that makes 12 years. He's been watching college football since he was a kid, and likely complaining about the bowl system for that long. Go figure. But then, would you quit watching hockey, Solon, if its play-off system were seriously flawed?
For all intent and purposes, I have quit watching hockey even though it has the best playoff system around. I have watched three games all season. I skipped the New Year's Day winter classic just because....I skipped last year's Stanley Cup run. I will most likely skip the playoffs this year. I have only watched three football games all year and one was the Colts-Chargers playoff game. But College Football is so beyond a tragedy... it is beyond a joke when four teams can claim to be the National Champion; USC, Utah, Texas, and who ever wins tonight though only one game will "determine" the National Championship....I hope Oklahoma wins.... Go Sooners!!!!! Complete the punch-line....
Sadly I will probably watch a little but crazy enough I have gotten turned off enough by the NCAAF that I'ved started watching more pro football. I mean what the hell was a team like Clemson (which I grew up going to games) playing in a bowl game for--what a waste of damn money as indicated by the number of people at the game. The attendance issue in itself may eventually help push away from the ridiculous numbers of bowl games--with any luck that is. The BCS on the other hand will not.
Who needs attendance when you have television rights and corporate sponsorship. Bowl Games, especially the few on New Year's Day, are a wet dream for TV Execs, advertisers, and corporations as you have an audience that is too hung over to o anything but watch television all day long....I would watch more NFL if I lived in an area in which I could choose which teams I could watch. But the monopoly that be dictates my viewing habits.. So I don't view.
