    I'm looking at ESPN Bowl Game page and I knew there were a lot of bowls but damn!:
    College Bowl Games - 2011-12 College Bowl Game Scores and Schedules - ESPN

    Of course, any football fan will watch the New Years games, the Title Game and whatever Bowl Game your favorite team is in but seriously, wtf is this?:

    The "Beef 'O' Bradys Bowl"? Who thought that sh*t up? :confused:
    Looks like a real "barn burner" too: Fla. Int. vs Marshall! Sounds like an Airport is playing in a Bowl Game ffs!

    And since they have so many bowls it looks like they're running out of good teams to stock them with. Check out the "BBVA Compass" Bowl:

    7-5 SMU vs 6-6 Pittsburgh! Kinda' scraping the bottom of the barrel huh? May they should rename it "Bottom of the Barrel" Also-Ran Bowl. :lol:

    And how long will it be before we see the "Viagra Bowl" or the "Tampax" bowl and where exactly would they be played and what city would dare to host a game like that?

    I can't understand the infatuation with college football. I may never understand it.

    Bump. Looks like there's 39 Bowl games this year. This is what happens when money and crass commercialism destroys sporting traditions.

    "Famous Idaho Potato Bowl" (WTF?)
    "Popeyes Bahamas Bowl" (Worst chicken EVER!)
    "Quick Lane Bowl"
    "Duck Commander Bowl"

    Why have the games at all? They all look like 3 hour long commercials for products.
