How do you know bowl season is watered down like day-old beer at a frat kegger? When this happens.

Boston College head coach Steve Addazio appears in this video, urging fans to trek down to New York City to watch his Eagles take on Penn State in the Pinstripe Bowl.

Do you think this kind of salesmanship is going on in Tallahassee, Columbus, Eugene and Tuscaloosa where they're prepping for the playoff? Nah, we didn't think so, either.

Addazio goes for humor by throwing out the words "dude" and "dudettes" and reminding everyone about all New York has to offer, but, really, wouldn't it be better if he spent his time drawing up a game plan for beating the Nittany Lions in a bowl game that seems like a candidate to disappear into the ether? We get the sense BC is about a day away from giving tickets away to anyone who walks into the student union and buys a Yoo-hoo.

BC is 7-5 and PSU is 6-6, which means this matchup features mediocre teams from big conferences. They'll square off on December 27, in that period leading up to New Year's when seemingly every college that fields a team plays in a bowl that means as much as a happy birthday message on Facebook from that kid who sat next to you in 6th grade social studies.
