The final bowl games!

We are in the last week of bowl games which is only one day. The bowls have been OK to watch if you really love college football or were a fan of one of the teams. Truth be told, with many players opting out, it was tough to watch the games. Although, I did watch some games to see players that I want to keep an eye on next season.

These next four games might feel like a let down after the two semi-final games. Kind of wierd to do it this way but heh, what do I know? Not much that is for sure. I will be watching my Trojans and the Utah game. Not sure about the others due to the opt-outs.

Well, there it is. Taking a QB that has accuracy issues is not going to be popular. But I expect that the team can groom him for a few seasons if they want. At least one season but likely more because I think they extend Cousins one to two more years.

I think defense needs depth and they’ll probably only add one offensive interior lineman. Bradbury is likely getting an offer.

Vaugn is an intriguing pick and could go much higher.

Well, enjoy the games!
