Listen, I'm one of those college football fans that actually likes having more bowl games because it means I have more football to watch, but "high level of excitement" about the Boca Raton Bowl is pushing it, Doug. I'm happy to know there's a game for me to watch on a December Tuesday, but let's not go off the rails.
