Boise?

Why the hell is there a college bowl game played in Boise, Idaho? And why did Boston College have to go play Boise State on its home field in the MPC Computers Bowl this late afternoon/evening?

Bowl games should be played at neutral sites whenever possible (USC in the Rose Bowl is unavoidable, I guess) and they should always be in places with nice climates. The goal should be to get the teams' fans to travel to the game; I didn't see a single BC fan in the pouring rain of Boise on ESPN earlier, and I can't blame them.

To make matters worse, Boise State went and turned the bowl banquet into a pep rally and slighted the BC attendees, angering the Eagles. With BC blowing out the Broncos 24-0 at halftime today, Rece Davis of ESPN said, "If Boston College comes to town, don't run out of potatoes." Then BC nearly blew the big lead, needing a late interception in the end zone to preserve a 27-21 victory. What a crappy way to end the season, even if it was a win.

The BC fans should demand palm trees next new year's.
