My view … Bowl season

With one round of football games to go the teams from the Southeastern Conference have shined.
SEC teams have won 7 of their 9 games for a 7-2 record, the best of any conference. That is something to brag about. The only two SEC teams to lose are Mississippi State and Auburn. The one game left is the most important of them all. LSU and defending National Champion Clemson will face off in the National Championship game Jan. 13 in the Super Dome in New Orleans.
Coupled with the Titans winning over New England in the NFL playoffs the 2019-20 season has given Tennesseans a lot to cheer about – that, and Memphis going to the Cotton Bowl where they fell to Penn State.
Tennessee pulled out a Gator Bowl victory over Indiana, scoring twice in the last five minutes. That gives the Vols the second-longest winning streak in the SEC. If LSU does not win then, Tennessee will own the longest win streak.
Sports fans now have basketball to look forward to as high schools and colleges tune up for conference championships and March Madness which is not that far down the calendar.
While I confess that I am a big fan of college football I do like to watch local college basketball and get a little more excited when the tournaments approach.
I try to steer this column away from sports and politics because I realize that there are a lot of readers that do not follow sports and in politics no matter what I say it angers half the population.
As we move further into 2020 I wish the best for everyone and hope that the new year is full of opportunities.
I ask our readers that if there is some topic they would like to see more coverage on to please let that be known.
Happy 2020. And read more newspapers.
