    23rd most interesting bowl

    Surprised we were that high, and shows that most disagree with the allegedly boring NC game.

    Where do you get that 'most disagree with the championship game being boring'? Because media folks that spend every season pumping up notre dame (regardless of whether its a good year for them or not) and the SEC love that game?

    Looks like Iowa helped send another bowl team to the Little Caesars Bowl: CMU.

    Re: 23rd most interesting bowl

    This seems like more of a list of which bowls are most prestigious and could have mostly been created before the teams were assigned. There is not way the Orange bowl would be 8th otherwise.

    Re: 23rd most interesting bowl

    This is funny:

    2. Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

    Oregon vs. Kansas State
    Jan. 3: ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET, University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz.

    The No. 4 Ducks and No. 5 Wildcats came within one loss of playing for a BCS national championship. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, 73, will try to slow down Oregon's high-octane offense, which is averaging 50.8 points per game.



    I like how his age is emphasized, as if he's going to be on the field himself. Rough way to make him earn his salary too.

    Surprised they even listed the Cotton Bow, I thought it was against the rules for ESPN to even talk about the Cotton Bowl.

    I have never once said that a ND-Alabama NC game was going to be boring. I specifically said I had no interest in watching it and was making plans for that evening that included doing anything but watching the game.

    Wow. That's a really high octane offense with tons of speed to ask a 73 year old guy to try to keep up with.

    Re: 23rd most interesting bowl

    I'm not sure that with 35 Bowl games, being listed as 23 is "High" on the importance list.


    I removed it.

    Re: 23rd most interesting bowl

    23rd is higher than I'd expect. We are a lower tier BCS team that went 6-6 facing a non-BCS team that we have already played this season. The fact that we aren't lower shows some respect for both teams by ESPN. SBNation's bowl rankings had us in a similar position.

    I'm sad because this is a "nothing to gain" game for us. I would have preferred we faced off against a bad Big 10 team so we would have had a BCS opponent and wouldn't be in a gain nothing or lose a lot situation.
