The BCS bowl schedule 2011 is still a ways off. Although the BCS bowl schedule 2011 is the most important of the bowl season, it cannot start until New Years Day. Even after the Rose and Fiesta take place on New Years, they still have to hold the Orange two days later, and the Sugar the day after that. At that point, the wait will truly become aggravating, as fans must wait six more days for the final showdown. With all that, the BCS bowl schedule may not be helping fans live with the current system.
In the past, the last day of a college football season was on New Years Day, making it even more of a special occasion. However, in this current era, New Years is not an end, but a beginning to the final stage of the season.
The BCS bowl schedule 2011 begins with two major games on January 1, between TCU and Wisconsin in the Rose, and Oklahoma and Connecticut in the Fiesta. On January 3, Virginia Tech and Stanford clash in the Orange, with Arkansas and Ohio State playing the Sugar on January 4.
Most fans would probably want the national title game, between Oregon and Auburn, to be held a day or two later. Instead, they must wait all the way to January 10, when the Tigers and Ducks finally end the season in Glendale.
Nowadays, the national title game has been held later and later, with the last few of them taking place on either January 7 or 8. But the BCS bowl schedule 2011 ends on the latest date ever this time around. Since January 8 and 9 are on the weekend, when the NFL first round takes place, they obviously weren’t options. Even January 7 wasn’t available, since that’s when the Cotton Bowl takes place.
The drive to stretch the year out even longer, and add more bowl games, has helped the postseason go on into new dates. Of course, those responsible still insist that a playoff would be even longer, and that no good schedule could be worked out.
For Oregon and Auburn, the end of the BCS bowl schedule 2011 will come 37 days after their last game. Even those who play in the Super Bowl get only 14 days off, for all the complaints about rust. In this case, although the Tigers and Ducks are expected to light up the scoreboard, it could take a while for them to get going.
The only college postseason games that matter these days come from the BCS, but their bowl schedule has made the wait for them even harder. After today, there will be 33 days of hype to go, before Oregon and Auburn close things out.
