But something has been lost.
I agree. This year was the most disinterested I've been in the game in 20 years.
I've never personally cared for the pro game because it's just people playing for money. There's no allegiance to the team, they're just there to get paid.
The college game at least had the facade that players were playing for their school.
Now that is gone and they're just doing the same thing that pros are.
I get that they probably should get paid... but the transfer rodeo makes the product significantly less interesting to me.
Couple that with the "super conferences" and the stuff that made college football special is all but gone.
I normally eat up college football but found myself watching less and less as the season went on. I thought gambling would make it more interesting but I lost interest in that too. I didn't even bother watching any of the playoff games this year. I think I only caught one bowl game start to finish (OSU/Mizzou, a game in which I turned it on and did other things while it was on in the background)
