They bring fans to the game and ratings to the TV Network.
That is all.

some things you just need to accept as is.

it's notre dame. if they're alive, they'll get coverage. it's not fair. it's not right. it just is, and it isn't gonna change in our lifetimes.

just as you're assured that the first time the yankees and red sox play each other this year... it will be the lead story on sportscenter, regardless of wether or not you or i give a shit. if it gets ratings, it will be there till it doesn't.

none whatsoever. which is why i only look at the sport for betting reasons and can't get in to it in any way other than that. it's a complete joke of a system.

let me figure this out... the claim to why there isn't a playoff is because they don't want to keep kids out of class, yet the playoff would take place in late december/early january, when the average college student isn't in class to begin with... but on top of it, we're gonna have three two full weeks between the first bowl and the national championship game, yet we can't have a two round playoff system 'cause it would take up too much time.

it's a crock of shit, it's a joke, and the entire sport is a joke, too.

I don't know but it sure felt good seeing then get their asses handed to them.

And I'm sure at the start of next season they'll be ranked in the top 5 again.

USC kicker Danelo found dead at bottom of cliff

ESPN.com news services

Mario Danelo, a kicker for the USC football team, was found dead Saturday in San Pedro, Calif.

Danelo's body was found at the bottom of White Point Cliff in San Pedro, according for a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department. Police did not release further details.

Danelo, a redshirt junior, walked on with the Trojans in 2003 and earned a scholarship in 2005, according to the USC athletic department's Web site.

He was 15-for-16 on field goals this season and made 44 of 48 PATs, leading the team in scoring with 89 points.

Danelo is the son of former NFL kicker Joe Danelo.

So here's the skinny, I'm in a bowl games pool...43 entrants, 20 bucks a piece, pick every game (against the point spread), varying point values per game starting with 3 for the first 5 games, culminating with 10 points tonight.

Current standings:
1st place: Some guy we don't want to win: 102 Points
2nd place: Everyone's best friend, Hewson: 97 points.

Some guy we don't want to win has OSU laying 7.5
Hewson has Florida getting 7.5.

Gators cover (who gives a rats ass who wins) and I win the pool.
If OSU covers, I drop to 3rd place (and probably a $50 booby prize)

Go Gators

I can't believe the last bowl game hasn't even been played yet. Unbelievable.

52 days between OSU's final regular season game and the Championship game. That's almost 2 months between games! Just absolutely ridiculous.

I wish I could support you Hewson, but as a FSU graduate I'm contractually obligated to hope that Florida gets destroyed by OSU - if I don't, they take back my diploma.

I'm an Ohio State fan today too.

Almost my entire school was blue and orange, it looked like vomit.
