“We really do think we’re going to change the paradigm of New Year’s Eve.”

The College Football Playoffs, where the pomposity is so thick, you could cut it with a knife.

Say what you will about the BCS, at least it wasn’t so full of itself.

    No, they won’t. Some people still have to work on New Year’s Eve and won’t make special arrangements to see a non-playoff game just because it’s the Orange or the Sugar Bowl.

    And then they’re going to wonder why attendance and viewership is down, and they won’t even realize that they are the ones who ruined it all.

    Unless the Dawgs are involved I will not make special plans to see these games. One, I’ll be working on NYE, and two, Mrs. Mumphrey will be dragging me to some event as soon as I get home. I am typically lucky to see bits and pieces of the Peach Bowl unless the Dawgs are involved, in which case I get a pass from the wife for the night.

    Could definitely be the exception but I have planned New Year’s Eve around the Peach Bowl for over a decade. It is a great time to be at home and away from the crazies anyway. Cook at home with a couple or two over and watch a CFB game. This will just make it even better. I think they are right about it being a game changer….at least in the South. Celebrating great football is a bigger event than a new date on a calendar anyway. Rock on CFB Playoffs, but let’s work harder on getting the size of the playoff right, then you won’t have any trouble getting the nation involved in CFB.

    Don’t worry – when the ratings are half of the new year’s day ratings, they will get the point.

    This will end badly, but will be blamed on the bowls not being the Rose and Sugar not the date and times of the games.
