March Madness or college football bowl season?

I think that March Madness is more appealing to me because it offers more of a chance for the "underdog" to win. The bowl season rather is usually a powerhouse smashing the underdog. Even this years National Championship was lopsided, the winning team won by 6 touchdowns.

I don't understand what people see in a bunch of glorified exhibitions, aka bowls

If there was a decent playoff system in college football then it would win. Right now no playoffs, so basketball wins.

Not surprised that the "SEC states" went for bowls over Bball.

Football. Basketball is boring.

Are you kidding me common USA March Madness is the craziest and best time of the year! Football bowls are just like they play win a trophy, then end of season. Or watch a bunch of upsets and unbelievable teams go all the way!

I don't really like sports, but on the Super Bowl day there are wings.

By far March Madness. I like football more than B ball, but the tournament wins hands down. Now if college football ever went to tournament.......

Literally the exact same thing I was thinking. Football is better overall, but March Madness smokes the college bowl season.

March Madness: All hype to watch a game that is only interesting when there is less than a minute to play.

At least the kids aren't getting paid an obscene amount of money to play. That only comes later after innocence is lost and full-fledged punkassedness (similar to smartassedness) overcomes their demeanor.

Big college football fan, but the BCS is a joke that usually leaves me mad without a resolution. A six team championship in college would be a start.

NCAA hockey.

Bowl games are a joke. None of them mean anything, and even the BCS national championship doesn't feel like it means much. They're just a big advertisement campaign

I love the unpredictability of March Madness! 68 teams have a chance of winning! Like right now, 16 seed Western Kentucky is beating 1 seed Kansas
In bowl games, only the top two teams have the chance of being number one.

I love both, so this was a hard one.

03/22/13 7:48 pm

Why am I not surprised Kansas said hoops?

03/22/13 7:19 pm

Basketball is painfully boring

The ONLY reason I say hoops is because we always end up busier at work (I work in a sports bar) during March Madness. The $ in my pocket is my reason!

Football season is WAY more exciting here but I guess because its a college town I live in and not just any college but the University of Alabama. But the traffic is horrible on game day.

Both games I have been looking forward to are on at the same time tonight. I wish I was one of those fancy people with TiVo.

You people are not sports fans if you don't recognize the single most exciting time of the year, MARCH MADNESS, BABY!

03/22/13 1:59 pm

Anyone trying to see Delaware with Eliana Della Donna this weekend- potentially her last game ever...unless they win and/or she goes into the WNBA

03/22/13 1:43 pm

Neither...World Series!!!!

03/22/13 12:45 pm

For me, college sport is about as exciting as a kindergarten tic tac toe world championship.

I enjoy football more than basketball, but the march madness style tournament is so much better than bowl games. Wish they would bring playoff tournaments to college football.

I don't care about either but I do fill out a completely uninformed bracket every March.

There's no point to the bowls.
The tourney means something.

What is the point of the bowl system again if all the games suck and prove nothing...

03/22/13 10:27 am

Hate basketball as a sport in comparison to football, but the tournament is so much fun to watch/keep up with/fill out brackets/make friendly bets, etc... Bowl season is a gigantic waste of time and only serves to make money for the NCAA. It carries no weight on season rankings. Whats the point?
