Not feelin' the love
Not much love for the Independence Bowl, though.
The Sporting News gives the I-Bowl a two-star rating (translation: TiVo it). Here's what the magazine says about the I-Bowl: "There's something about the threat of Nick Saban finishing below .500 that makes an otherwise utterly irrelevant game mildly interesting.''
There is a positive. The I-Bowl doesn't have the magazine's lowest (one-star) rating. That would belong to the New Mexico, Hawaii, Motor City, Texas, Emerald, New Orleans, Humanitarian and International bowls.
