In planning my bowl game viewing for the next two weeks I realized I'm living in the "I must be getting old" stage of my life. I remember when there was the Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, Gator Bowl and Cotton Bowl. Now I need to consider the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl, The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the S.D. County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, The Fight Hunger Bowl ( this one really confuses me, instead of spending money for the naming rights to a bowl game, why not feed the hungry?), The New Era Pinstripe Bowl, The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, The National University Holiday Bowl (what is that all about?), The AdvoCare V100 Bowl (I googled AdvoCare V100. The Company makes herbal supplements for athletics. Why not just call it the Steroid Bowl?), The BBVA Compass Bowl (checking account fees should be increasing soon for the Compass Bank customers). Think I'll tune into the Turner Classic Movie Channel.

Hopefully we'll be showing both San Diego football teams this weekend. SDSU plays at 2:30 pm Saturday in the (and I am not kidding about this) Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Buffalo on the blue turf of Boise St. The Chargers play Sunday at home, which means it might be blacked out in more than one sense. It could be a TV blackout, or the stadium could simply be full of Raider fans. Growlers of Nickel Beer make great gifts and we also have gift certificates and lots of new brewery merchandise coming in this weekend just in time for gift giving. We'll also have more Beer Cheese available to-go and is a great spread for parties. Look for the Beer Cheese in 3 flavors - Regular, Black Pepper and Chipotle (made with the Devil's Copper). Cheers, Tom

The Fiesta Bowl folk are having a good cry. UCF is a guest there in January. OU and Bama in the Sugar? Be careful what you wish for. And OSU fans may get reminded of who might've been their better coach with a matchup with LSU in the Cotton Bowl. And finally, quite a fall for No. Illinois..from the Fiesta to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise.

(AP) — Multiple media outlets are reporting Wisconsin will hire Utah State’s Gary Andersen as head football coach to replace Bret Bielema. The Wisconsin State Journal was first to report that Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez had offered Andersen the job Tuesday night. Andersen is in his fourth year at Utah State and is coming off his best season yet. The 18th-ranked Aggies won the Western Athletic Conference and finished 11-2, with a school record for victories after beating Toledo 41-15 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Saturday. Utah State lost 16-14 at Wisconsin earlier this season. The 48-year-old Andersen is 26-24 at Utah State. He took over in Logan, Utah, after spending five seasons as defensive coordinator at the University of Utah under Kyle Whittingham. Bielema left Wisconsin for Arkansas.
