Anyone watching the bowls?

I've looked through this board for the most recent pages and did not see anyone discussing the bowls. Is anyone watching them, or are theyre nto many college football fans around?

DH has been. I just laugh at how ridiculous the names have gotten and go do something else while it is on.

I watched the end of the Outback, the Rose, and the first half of the Orange.

The ability to sit for 12 hours and watch football went out the window when the kids got old enough to watch TV/play games and want my attention. lol

Stayed up to watch the Orange Bowl game. Happy to see the Noles win, but even when they win the press seems to slam them. I am thrilled with the year they have had and Im sure the players are too

LOVE college football and hate pro. Was a bit annoyed that we had to sit through 2 weeks of crappy bowls just to have 3 bowls I really wanted to watch all on at the same time yesterday, though. Enjoyed watching Capitol One, even though I felt like a certain other SEC team should have been there. Like Georgia, though, so wished them all the best. Les Miles proved himself to be a clock management idiot in the Chick-fil-a bowl. Was anyone really surprised by the Rose Bowl outcome? I mean, the Pac hasn't been performing as well as we all thought they would this bowl season, but did anything really think Stanford wouldn't win that one? Liked the outcome of the Outback Bowl. Disappointed in Mississippi State's performance at the Gator Bowl. Found myself wondering if the officials had any clue what they were doing at the end of the first half of the Alamo Bowl. Really looking forward to the Fiesta Bowl (let's go K-State!) and think it will likely be the most entertaining of the BCS bowls. Can't wait for Cotton and certainly expect my Aggies to win against our former conference mates. And when it comes to the MNC, if Bama doesn't win and win big, I will be shocked.

Watched some of the NIU/FSU game. I am from FL and live close to NIU. I was glad to see them get in.

I will watch the UF game tonight and the Championship Game, but thats it. Not a fan of bowl games really at all.

It's a really crappy year for college football in general, so none of the games interested me. I caught bits and pieces of games yesterday as I flipped channels, but that's about it.

One PP mentioned the names of the bowls and the one I found the most "interesting" was the Kraft Fight hunger Bowl. Now don't get me wrong--there is nothing at all wrong with helping the needy, but it just seemed a little unusual for the name of a bowl game.

We are heading down to South Beach on Saturday to be at the national championship game. RTR!

I'll be watching the Gators tonight. I watched bits and pieces of South Carolina - Michigan yesterday. I'll probably watch the National Championship game even though I can't stomach either of them winning it.

Why the dislike for Bama or the Irish?
