On one hand there's Bama. I can pull for Bama over the tiglets because I really hate the tiglets but otherwise I shouldn't pull for Bama.

On the other hand there's Georgia. I've always said that I had rather beat UGA more than any other team (except the tiglets) because I know so many UGA fans. This place is swarming with them. If they win the NC the awfulness will be exceeded only when the tiglets win it.

I'll probably watch. But I probably won't be very interested.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who
Dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the
Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it
Possible. This I did.
—T. E. Lawrence,
The Seven Pillars of Wisdom

I haven't watched a BCS title game since the Vols played and won.  Except for a few plays early in the Vandy game, and the last few minutes of the Army/Navy game, I didn't watch any college football on TV this season.  Tonight's game will be no different; I just have zero interest.  I'll learn who won when I access the internet tomorrow morning.  I'm seriously ready for some college lacrosse.

I'm not nearly as far gone as you on this, but I am getting there.  I did watch every single Vol game this year, but I watched no other college game in it's entirety until bowl season, and I only watched those because of the contest.  I did watch the playoffs just for the sake of them though (would have watched without the contest).

But I am already thinking ahead to next season, and may record at least some Vol games and watch them on mostly fast forward.   

Although the degree of "meh" is far less with me, I find college football less appealing all the time.  I guess it's more of an under 40 obsession?

I'm a huge....huge college football fan and I watch it during the season from 11am central till after midnight......Watched 99% of the bowl games.....watched the D2 playoffs and watched the D2 championship game Sat. between N. Dakota State and James Madison and I'll watched tonight. After tonight I'll go into by post season depression until next Sept.......I don't really get into college basketball until mid-late Feb and march.....I wouldn't walk across the street to see a NBA game if you gave me courtside tickets and I hadn't watched a total of 3 hours of NBA in the past 25 years.....Same with hockey and I don't really get into MLB until about Sept. because the season is too dang long.

So what I'll do after tonight's game which is my second favorite thing to do..........and that's

I love CFB, but I also have work in the morning, and am on EST. Monday night championships are a terrible idea.

I want UGA to lose.  (Notice I didn't say I wanted Bama to win)
