A reason to care
Normally at this time of the year, I just glance at the TV to see what the score is in the bowl game of the day.
Let's face it, if you're playing before Christmas you probably don't need to be playing football.
But this year is different. I've actually watched some of these bowl games that I used to turn up my nose at in years past.
Are the matchups that much better? No. The matchups still stink.
The difference is we're picking the college bowl games in the paper. And just like the office fantasy baseball, basketball, you name it leagues, now there is sudden interest and reason to care.
