    I don't get it. Right now on ESPN the GoDaddy.com bowl #25Kent State vs Arkansas State. What are they playing for? The right to be the 25th best team in college football? If you are not playing for #1 the what the hell is there to be proud of? I want to represent northern Cali and Stanford but they beat a crappy 8-5 Wisconsin team that was like #12 and would have rather seen them at least best a top 5 team.

    They are playing for advertising money..that is all. They get to say instead of being 7-4 this season they won a post season game. :rolleyes:

    I hope this doesn't sound rude, but you sound like a total fucking faggot and maybe you should stick to sucking tranny cock in an adult bookstore rather than ask questions about football.

    Thank you.

    Take care.

    Yes I get it that the schools get a lot of money if they go to a bowl which is great for the institution but why should I care as a fan if 2 mediocre college teams are playing in a meaningless game (assuming I didn't bet on the game). It would be like having the broncos play the falcons next week and all the other teams play bowl games. I wouldn't be so excited then.

    Thank you for for your great contribution. You must take a lot of stock in your cool factor on a message board!
