Ok let me just get this out of the way now. There ARE NOT too many bowl games. You don't like the bowl games don't watch that is what Dancing with the Big Brother Bangladesh is for. What does it hurt that there are 35 bowl games? Nothing. Quit bitching about there being too many bowls.
Now that I got that rant out of the way. It seems that when the early bowls are exciting or there is an upset it sets the tone for the entire bowl season. Let's hope that isn't the case this year because the first three bowl games today were turds. Well since my team is favored by 2 touchdowns maybe I should be happy if these games did set the tone for the bowl season. Anyway grades.
