    it's already mostly a participation trophy to get a bowl invite. might as well just have enough bowls so that No Team Gets Left Behind. Today's snowflakes need such ego boosting.

    Oh. My. God.

    This is pretty crazy, admittedly. Still, if the cities involved (Myrtle Beach !?!) get up the cash and the TV folks want to pitch in, I suppose it'll happen. Makes calls for a real national Div 1 championship playoff system a lot more persuasive too. That's a plus, imho.

    I wonder if the ACC vs BIG at Wrigley will be an addition to the Detroit bowl or replace it

    I was talking to Jim Phillips, the AD at NW, and he was telling me the changes the Ricketts family has made to Wrigley to accommodate football. Turns out, the dugouts are now extractable, and the holes can be filled with dirt. The first 5 rows are retractable, so now the field can house a football game without both teams having to go the same direction. Looks like NW and Wisconsin have agreed to a Wrigley game in 2020. But, man, I wouldn't want to be in Wrigley in mid to late December for a Bowl Game.

    ACC coaches need to use the Chicago Bowl as motivation. Play .500 football and your *** gets rewarded with playing in a blizzard!

    Ever seen the stadium at NW?

    It's a U with the open end facing Lake Michigan. When the lake winds come in - like they do at every single game - things get frigid in nothing flat. Then there's the snow and a field frozen as hard as concrete. After a season playing in that, Wrigley Field in December would seem like Club Med.

    Bowls = Money. Money from TV ads. Money for the cities hosting the bowl. Money for the teams, in the bowl. Sadly, CFB has became VERY money driven.

    I wonder if they are gonna put cardboard cutouts of fans in the seats for tv optics? Mid and lower tier bowl attendance is abysmal.

    They can have 100 bowls. Ten matter. The rest ... just patter.

    I know I’m not of the popular opinion but I am glued to my tv during bowl season. I get to see all kinds of times that I would never have watched otherwise. And many of them are super entertaining. That Bahama bowl a few years back still comes to mind as must watch. It was the first week of games iirc.

    Who gets excited to see a 5-7 Wake Forest team play a 5-7 Illinois team?

    I think it is still true that most teams, in most Bowl games, lose money on the deal.

    Money distribution from the bigger bowls might have negated this compared to days gone by.

    But practicing for a bowl game with the same starting lineups & same coaches that gave you a 5-7 record is like pissing into a tropical storm.

    Some of you guys are clearly not college football fans as a whole. That's fine just continue watching only Tech games that's perfectly cool. Some of us like watching as much as possible though.
