How ridiculous can it get. The Illini are 6-6 with six straight losses and UCLA is 6-7. Can anyone outside of loyalists really care? I understand it is posted due to the ballpark…. but really? I am an Illini fan…. but there could not possibly be a more meaningless bowl game than this one. JD
Just illustrating ways to host non-baseball, money-making (hopefully) events at the ballpark. Is there a more meaningless bowl game? Yes. My Boise State Broncos had to face a 6-6 Arizona State team in the Las Vegas Bowl. A 56-24 blowout at impressive Sam Boyd Stadium. Woo hoo! At least the equally-matched Illini and Bruins were given the opportunity to play at a pretty cool baseball venue (while sending the “fight hunger” message). That said, no 6-6 team should be playing in a bowl game!
Hopefully, the news will pick up next week. It’s been pretty slow between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve!
