Well if there were enough 7-5 teams to fill the bowls then they would be at home.

Then don't watch it while the rest of us enjoy watching football instead of griping about something that doesn't effect them.

Amen amen amen. This time of year, like clockwork, there’s a few folks who like to complain about having too much college football.

Seeing we are about to endure 8 long months without it, I value any college football game I have time to see.

FSU and Duke beat 8 - 4 teams. UVA is just getting their program turned around and I have no problem with them being awarded this opportunity to further do so.

Some people just want to complain about something. I love college football. Some 6-6 teams are pretty good. Texas looked dang good. FSU is a good team. Duke has played well lately. Texas Tech has USF on the ropes.


He's just stating an opinion ...

I happen to agree wth him. Not complaining. Just concur that the whole thing has gotten out of hand when pure mediocrity is rewarded.

The pathetic Florida State "bowl qualification" saga simply underscores it.

UVA is getting curb stomped by Navy. They don't want to be there.

I dont recall and had to look up the bowl to see which it was. that's how little I cared about it

It's easy to not watch. Keep in your mind that you wished

for less football when it is mid-August and you have the football withdrawals.

how is it wrong? it generates money for the university and it gives kids a last game of the season to have fun. we can't take it for granted that we are 12-1, that could easily be us. I'm sure if we were 6-6, you'd want to see us play in a bowl game


Re: Just wrong that 6-6 teams

Does it? Thought a lot of school took a loss on some of this turd bowls. The only benefit is the extra practices it affords you. But I agree, 6-6 is absurd. You have to earn a bowl via a good season. Freaking everyone is a winner mentality has to go.

It allows the 6 - 6 team a chance to better themselves for the future.

well that was us in 2010, so its inevitable that we will eventually have a bad season down the road... as a student here I am a true Clemson fan


Disagree. Navy-UVA good for local Annapolis economy.

I don’t think it’s wrong, but I do look at each 6-6 team individually. A perennial powerhouse like FSU making a bowl game while being 6-6 is lame. They should be at home and I don’t feel like their fans are proud and happy. But a team like Duke or Temple, where they aren’t good every year, it might be super exciting for their fan base and players.

Sometimes I like seeing a perennial 3-9 team claw their way to 6-6 and be rewarded. Also, we know every 6-6 team didn’t take the same path, and some teams 12 games were much more difficult than others.

I'm on the fence about it. I have football withdraws but I can't stand watching awful football. There are some decent 6-6 7-5 teams out there so I don't complain too much.

Virginia on the other hand, idk how they got bowl eligible (easy early schedule I guess). They're atrocious.


Re: Just wrong that 6-6 teams

Some of the most exciting bowl games are from teams that are 6-6 or 7-5. 2 years ago I complained that there were to many Bowl games. But have since changed my mind. I really enjoyed the games yesterday. FSU game was only blow out. The previous Bowl games earlier in the week were pretty exciting too.

I am a college football junkie and enjoy watching some of the smaller schools or schools with less exposure play.

I think the players and schools know when they have been invited to a secondary bowl verses a quality bowl by location, date of game and opponents.

There is a lot of mediocrity in college football . As Tommy Bowden would say, parity .

And it is an expensive proposition to travel with teams and bands . Sponsors seem to change almost every year.

After conference sharing and expenses from the last two years, it would shock you how little money the playoff teams netted last year .

Agreed...should need 9.***

I agree . I can just see both sides of it .

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

We are a nation that revels.


Posted: Dec 28, 2017 4:10 PM
 

We're going to revel about something so the boys might as well get some extra practice in and boost the schools' income while we're at it.

Virginia sucked out loud.

Otherwise it could have been an entertaining game.
