Pittsburgh (7-5) vs. Kentucky (6-6) (+3)
I don’t know. Really? This is the game that’s supposed to tide us over until the national championship game? There’s really no way they couldn’t have played this bowl back in December? People might have watched then, you know. We didn’t have playoff football and a dozen other interesting things to do back in December.
Now, there is no way anyone watches this game except for alumni of both schools. It’s a total waste of time. Especially for Pitt, which doesn’t have a football coach yet and looks to be trying really hard to destroy any attractiveness their job might have.
Birmingham, Alabama isn’t going to be the center of the college football universe on this night. That’s my prediction. People are still going to care more about press coverage of Oregon/Auburn than watching this game. And no one can blame them. These two programs will be exactly like this next year, maybe even in the exact same bowl. Why bother with the actual football?
And yes, I’d be thrilled if Indiana had made this bowl. Shut up.
