I always used to look forward to the US Bowl season and watch the next generation of players who would be coming out to play in the NFL and CFL.
But now I can’t seem to get interested for some reason. I guess it is something to do with how big money has taken over in the NCAA Div I. Players getting paid big dollars (God bless them) and who sit out their Bowl game in case they get injured and spoil their big pay day before going on to their 5th year to the highest bidder. Coaches doing the same thing. There is no doubt that Div I football has taken over as the second highest money maker behind the mighty NFL. I have read that some of these 4th year Seniors going into the transfer program are getting paid a million dollars to transfer. I guess everyone would do the same thing in their shoes because the big NCAA schools are taking in a lot of revenue. This all has to be really hitting the CFL trying to sign top players anymore and especially the Canadian players from the NCAA. But things change and I don’t have to like it but I still have the memories of how things used to be. Maybe I’m a lone wolf so to speak but i don’t think so.


Gotta agree seeing all these players take a knee for their final bowl game is tough to take. Like you say I totally get it but it’s tough to take as a fan

QB Thomas Castellanos Boston College (TiCat neg lister) had a good day beating SMU

The transfer portal has ruined bowl season. A ton of unwatchable games now.

Football history just keeps repeating itself . The Steelers have a centre who can’t snap accurately and sadly so does Alabama . Bad snaps cost Bama the game against the Harbaugh led Wolverines .
It makes me appreciate, even more , the TiCat centres over the years .
