The only bowl game I even remotely tried to watch was the Rose Bowl, it has too many emotional ties for me to completely ignore it. But, if they got rid of it for a playoff system, I'd be ok with that.
Its weird to me that a ten year old article from World Net Daily would express my feelings so well on this topic:
If the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was supposed to make college football fans drop their demands for a national championship playoff, it is a complete and utter failure. If the BCS was supposed to bring meaning to the post season bowl games, it is a complete and utter failure. In fact, the only thing that the BCS has done is drive the last nail in the coffin of the old bowl system.
College football is the most exciting team sport in America. No other sport fills stadiums with more than 100,000 fans at a time, week in and week out. No other sport can match the excitement of last week's UCLA-Miami or Kansas State-Texas A&M games.
However, college football is seriously ill and those who are responsible for its health have taken leave of their senses. They have sacrificed everything that makes college football wonderful at the altar of egocentric coaches and advertisers who want to waste their money for meaningless bowls.
