    Bowl season with favorite team to cheer for

    Does anyone else feel a little less interested in the bowl season when ISU is not a participant??? This year marks the third straight year with no ISU...You have to go back to 1999 to find a longer streak. For me, I enjoy the bowl games to a point, but not nearly as much as when ISU is a participant. Hopefully we can return to a bowl game in the near future and won't have to find consolation in "cheering" for big 12 rivals come bowl time.

    Re: Bowl season with favorite team to cheer for

    I wouldn't say I feel a little less interested. Half of these bowls are games where you have to have a dog in the fight to care. I'm sure it's the same way for the rest of the nation when we hit the Independence or Houston Bowls as well.

    I enjoy watching USC, because I enjoy the usual thrashing that they put on somebody. I really enjoy watching excellence in action.

    Most of the games, though, I don't even realize are happening. I just move on with life. I cared more about those other games when I was younger, which makes me now an old man.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Definately not less interested...well maybe just a little. But seriously, Football is football, and I can't get any for the next 9 months, so right now I am watching all the football I can get. That and I'm originally from OK, so Boomer Sooner.

    Re: Bowl season with favorite team to cheer for

    I'm disinterested in bowl games in general, with the exception of the national championship and an ISU bowl game. Now March Madness........I am always interested, but when ISU isn't in it, or after they are knocked out, my interest goes way down.

    Re: Bowl season with favorite team to cheer for

    had the gamecocks played a lot better i might have been more interested in their game.

    I watched all B12 and even had a few other games circled that i really wanted to see. The Pitt/OSU game was high on my list to watch. Actually i enjoyed that game even though most might think it was a clunker. 3-0 is a Tecmo Bowl score in these parts...

    Id prefer an ISU bowl, but theres enough interest elsewhere to tide me over.

    No one can match our dedication and passion for Nintendo's classic sports titles...Tecmo Bowl & R.B.I. Baseball. In-depth strategy guides, player attributes, team rankings, along with incredibly detailed recaps of our season play. We don't reminisce, we just keep playing!
