The playoff isn’t killing the bowl season...

Players selfishly sitting out is killing the bowl season.

Yep, eventually everyone will stop going to bowl games and we will start seeing a 64 team playoff.


Then what would the FBS be called?***

It can't be denied that the bowl games don't mean as much these days.

I just don’t understand that argument. There were never more than a couple or three teams with a chance to be voted #1 on New Year’s Day without the playoff. I think the only thing that has changed is the hype of the playoff

Back in the day, bowls picked teams by a pecking order and the games were played and sports writers crowned the NC. Sometimes it backfired. In 1978, Clemson beat Maryland and was in line to play Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl for a shot at being in the top 3 or 4 in the final poll... But Li'l 'ole Clemson got snookered into agreeing to play in the Gator Bowl. If you doubt that, simply look at who Oklahoma played in the Orange Bowl that year...Nebraska... a team from their own Conference who they had played only a few weeks prior to the bowl announcements...Shady deals were the order of the day...

I’ll tell you why. It’s the mindsets that have changed. You only had a couple of teams playing for the national title before the same as it is now. The players need to play for pride if nothing else. The fans need to support their teams. This all or nothing mentality that people have when it comes to sports is not good for anyone. It’s not good for the coaches who are constantly being fired even if they’ve had championship level success in the past. It’s not good for the players who feel like they have no reason to play the bowl games and it’s no good for fans who constantly bash the players and coaches of good teams. Please don’t take what I say out of context. There are times for coaches and players to be held accountable for underachieving but some of what has gone on the last few years is a little over the top.??

I agree with what you are saying. It used to be a coach could stay at a school for 20 years or more and live through a few bad years. Of course they weren't paid that much back then. Times have changed on all accounts.

We are just spoiled. It's very hard to watch mediocre teams play each other.

It all started when eSECpn started making the lame excuse “Well, they really didn’t want to be there”...when the SEC teams lost Bowl games and ignoring those losses when it came time to put 15 SEC teams in the Preseason Top 25 Poll.


Lol, 15 SEC teams in the top 25 - all of them plus one***

I'm like Dabo, I like them all. You never know which matchup will be a good game. The marque games are many times stinkers and a random matchup are great games.

Plus the extra practice time is great for your program and they are all good rewards for players who have worked so hard.


I was going to say it is that stupid

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.


dont recall the player, but he cost himself $20 million

by getting hurt in bowl game. That’s a lot of pressure for a 22 year old

wasn't that the kid from last year? broke his leg in the bowl game and dropped out of the first round?


How about the walk on senior who will never play at the next

level? Puts it all on the line, every. single. practice. Never gets any press. Never wins any awards. In fact, he rarely gets to play in a game. But there he is, giving 100% to help his team and teammates get better, always having their backs. And his last game, EVER, he gets repaid by the star players he helped make better sitting out. Dancing around on the sidelines, laughing, cutting up, protecting their draft status, while he, someone who gave it all for his team, walks off the field for the last time, those guys not having his back. That’s not team. Those aren’t guys I’d want in my foxhole.

You have to admit, if we didn’t make the playoffs

And even if we played in one of the old “BCS” type bowls, it just wouldn’t be the same. Everyone would be disappointed and the season deemed a failure
