“Bowl Picks–A Bad Year”

-0-

The College Football Playoffs are set.  The rich get richer, the little guy gets nothing, and college football staggers to the finish line.

As expected, the elite of college football got into the 4-team playoffs, known as the Alabama Invitation.  The Crimson Tide will face Notre Dame in one semi final.  Clemson will meet Ohio State in the other semi final matchup.

You had a good season Cincinnati, Coastal Carolina, BYU, here are some crumbs for your team, but you won’t get the big pay day.

Tough choices to find teams, even sub-500 teams, who got bowl bids, when so many teams, USC-Washington and others opted out, deciding not to play an extra game, in an empty stadium, with a roster charred by Covid problems.

Here’s a look at the bowl matchups so far:
