2010-2011 Bowl Games

In reviewing this year's 35 Bowl match-ups, I am struck in the lack of interest I have in who wins or loses almost all of these games. If I am going to watch college football, which I normally do not do much of during the regular season, I just hope it is entertaining. The one major exception of course is the dogfight my alma mater will be playing in tomorrow in the great State of Idaho.

Every year on this blog, I list the games, and select the team I want to win. I may not have strong emotions about this stuff, but I will follow tradition and do my best to make those selections, which of course are not predictions.
