These are the dog days. The days when the college football on TV kind of makes you die inside, but while you're dying inside, remember there's always a way to extrapolate a rooting interest out of a seemingly meaningless football game.
The Poinsettia Bowl tonight pitts Garrett Wolfe and Northern Illinois against the TCU Horned Frogs...and we should all be rooting for TCU.
When we play TCU next season it will be important that they enjoy that vaunted momentum that they could gain from a Poinsettia Bowl win. Just look at the winner of last year's Poinsettia winner...Navy...they did okay this year...
So if you thought there was no way that you could care about every insignificant bowl game, think again.
