Bowl Season Begins! - The Open Thread

Can Ohio win today? If they can play like they want to be there, they might have a chance. If they don't... well....

It's the beginning of bowl season with three completely meaningless, utterly useless, worthless games that will be played today and I'd recommend that if you want a college football playoff system that you boycott all the bowl games because that's made such a huge difference over the past 30 years, but unfortunately doesn't keep writers from trotting out the same old bullshit year after year.

If you really want a college football playoff instead of the last 35 college football games of the season (and stop kidding yourself, it's one way or the other), then I suggest you meet with someone other than Pinky and take over the world because there is nothing short of world domination that will make it happen.

Here's today's slate of games, and LOOK!!!!!!!!!! It includes playoffs!!!!! But, what's this? Playoffs that don't include bowls but instead use home field advantage? Probabilities of that happening in FBS = Your shot at world domination.

I'll be out Christmas shopping for a while, and I'll be supporting Nebraska while I'm at it, as Mrs CN and I are making a trip to Cabelas.

Nebraska Men's Basketball will play Alcorn State tonight on BTN NET and I'm sure Brian will have a preview and game thread for that up at 7:00 PM.
