I was thinking something similar after watching Vandy’s postgame celebration last night, but Jerry Hinnen says it far more eloquently than I can:
Bowls are awesome. It’s not just that watching a game that clearly means so much more to the players and coaches involved than it should always makes for great viewing–apparently, Jason Whitlock got a big lump of coal in his Christmas stocking–but the chance to watch Air Force’s option, Oregon’s Masoli, Nevada’s pistol, Boise’s Ian Johnson (one last time), Louisiana freaking Tech and freaking Rice go nuts in front of their home crowds, basically every single thing that happened in that UNC-West Virginia game … I mean, if you don’t like these things, you don’t like college football, and you’re probably a Communist.
The best part is he posted that before sitting down to watch the Music City Bowl last night. Amen, brother.
