    Rating each bowl game by interest

    I rated each bowl game 1-10, with 10 being must watch and 1 being absolutely no interest. I would go out of my way to watch most games rated 5 and above and would be disappointed missing games 8 and above. I probably won't watch anything 4 or below unless I'm really bored; definitely won't watch anything rated 1 or 2.

    My interest: 3 (go Wyoming)

    Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Ohio vs. Utah State

    Re: Rating each bowl game by interest

    As of right now, I'll be watching and cheering for all Big 12 teams, excepting Mizzou and aTm of course, and hope WVU and TCU win their bowls.

    Screw everyone else. I hope that joke of a Natl' championship game is a 3-2 final score.

    I'll root for all Big12, and against Iowa/Nebraska. I hope Alabama and Stanford just get shredded... but I really think Alabama ends up winning.

    I hope Alabama wins so it makes the BCS look even worse. Definitely hope OSU wins big.

    I hope the title game is like 65-0 LSU to show what a sham this matchup is.

    Re: Rating each bowl game by interest

    Normally I end up cheering against the Big 12 teams in bowls, out of my various reasons for disliking each school...but not this year. I want all 6 of us to win. **** the BCS, ESPN, and the SEC.

    Here's how I would rank my interest:

    #1. Iowa State vs Rutgers (obviously)
    #2. Kansas State vs Arkansas (I hate Purple Kansas, but I'll be cheering for them as if they were the Cyclones in this one)
    #3. Oklahoma State vs Stanford (nothing against Stanford, but I want to see the Cowboys destroy them)
    #4. Rest of the Big 12 bowls (not including the traitors)
    #5. Nebraska vs South Carolina (my SEC hate is not enough to overcome my Nub hate, so go USC)

    After that, I don't really care. I guess I hope the SEC-West championship game is either a massive blowout in favor of LSU, or an awful 3-0 type win by Bama. Either way, it will show it was a complete joke.

    I will go for every Big 12 team but Mizzu, A&M, and K-State. I will also cheer against Auburn, Iowa, and Nebby. I will go for every MAC team and against every SEC/B1G team.

    Watch the Florida International game. T.Y. Hilton is crazy fast and really fun to watch when he has the ball.

    Re: Rating each bowl game by interest

    Not gonna lie, this year's bowl slate looks pretty boring, from the top game all the way to the bottom. A couple of intriguing matchups, but I think I'll probably end up getting a lot more done around the house this holiday season than in most years prior.

    I hope the championship game is a 16-0 snoozefest. Three field goals and a defensive touchdown for LSU. Bama does nothing on offense.

    Re: Rating each bowl game by interest

    Here is my interest level:

    Pinstripe bowl - 10

    All others - 0

    I will only watch one bowl game.

    BCS - Every Game Counts (well except for the first LSU-ALA game)

    More like no games count. It doesn't make the regular season better, and it then makes it irrelevant by eliminating all but two teams by a glorified popularity contest.
