8 Bowl games have been canceled thus far BUT

There are still THIRTY-FOUR more on schedule not even counting the playoffs! If nothing else, this should be a year used to trim some of these trash bowls off the schedule permanently. Used to be a bowl was a reward for a special season. Now just about every team that plays the sport gets to go. I guess those of you who say "more college football is better" and enjoy watching UL Monroe play Toledo on a random December Tuesday, I got nothing for ya.


I don’t have a problem with it. Here’s why

If you make it to a bowl, you get more practice time to develop your backups than other teams that don’t make it to a bowl don’t get. Recall Kyle Parker to Tajh Boyd progression in the Belk Bowl or whatever it was called.
Hopefully we don’t stoop to that level again though

Was it still the Continental Tire Bowl in 2010?

And for the life of me I can't understand folks clamoring for less football to watch.

If you can honestly tell me youre planning to watch the, and this is the honest to God name: Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl between Houston and UTSA on December 19, then more power to ya sir. Youll be one of the few non-alums watching it.


It will likely be on my TV

Chances are it won't be a good game, but it is infinitely more likely to be a good game if it's played then if it's not. And I'll take ANY college football on my TV over most else thats on TV in those time slots.

I couldn’t have said it better. Well done sir.

If I can I’ll watch the two worst division 3 teams play. College football is by far the best sport and there needs to be more of it, not less.


I've watched way less games than normal this year

Give ALL teams more practice time. Cut the bowls down to about 12+playoffs.

For me, a bowl game should be a reward for a superior regular season.

When there are so many bowls that every team with a .500 record goes, they aren’t worth playing.

It is analogous to the “participation trophy” argument we have in kids sports these days. If everyone gets to play in a bowl, then playing in a bowl becomes meaningless.

I’d much rather see some sort of real scheduled pre-season games in August as a tune up for the season, than an anticlimactic snooze fest in Shrieveport In December.

This is Johnso st my personal perspective.


Has anyone ever confused a participation...

....trophy with the national championship trophy?

Has anyone confused a midweek/mid December bowl for a NY6 or playoff game?

Give me more football, not less.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask questions.

"For me, a bowl game should be a reward for a superior regular season."

A bowl team doesn't even need to have a "superior" season...but how about requiring they have at least a "winning" season?

Watching some of these 50-50 teams play in a bowl is like watching people with a 150 average bowl.

See, thats exactly it. Bowls are no longer a reward at all.

Maybe it's just me but the two semifinal games are still bowls but they kind of lose their identity as a bowl when they host a CFP game. For example seems like no one calls it the Orange,Cotton,Sugar, Fiesta but the "semifinal" or the "playoff" game.
