It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Look at that photo of the Rose Bowl Trophy in 1920. Priceless.
I still say there Are TOO many bowls. And more importantly too many after Jan 1. EVERY bowl should be held before Jan 1. EXCEPT the Rose, Orange, Sugar, Cotton, Gator, Capital One, and Outback . The BCS Championship can be held the next Friday, Saturday or Monday following Jan 1. But the minor bowls need to be held between Dec 18-31st.
As for tonight’s “big “ game. I like Utah. I have seen their games, and they have been pretty good. And surprising at times. They get up for the big games, and we should get a good effort. Navy is a good story, but their coach is gone, and lest face it , no matter what bowl they are in , the biggest game of the year for these midshipmen is beating Army and Air Force, and this year had the added bonus of winning at Notre Dame. So really how big can a game against Utah be ? Utah has one of the longest bowl winning streaks going right now, so they usually are motivated, no matter the opponent.
I bet the Utes-7, I also bet the Rams +9 tonight in the NFL, while for Sunday, I bet the Bengals +3.5, Lions-4, Bills+3, Redskins+7, 49ers +7
