What is with this Bowl Season
Posted on: December 27, 2008 3:05 pm
Are there just too many bowl games or is it just me. I love football, it is my passion to watch both College and Pro. What gets me is the fact that 68 teams get to play in a bowl game. Theres only 119 D1 schools so over half get in. Imagine if half of all D1 NCAA Basketball made the tourny? Half the NCAA Baseball teams make the Series? Again I love football but it seems we are rewarding 6-6 teams just so the conferance they represent can have a peice of the pie. The love of the Game has been taken over for the love of Money. I know the NCAA is all about the cash but now they are bring us into it by force feeding the likes of Florida Atlantic and Kentucky both 6-6 teams. The NCAA needs a playoff system in a big way, keep your bowl games and your money, there is a way to do both. Are they scard no one will go see the #9 seed play the #3 seed for a chance to move on to the second rd and maybe the National Championship game? NO. WIth the forced feeding happening I just wonder how do I get my peice of the action. There is money to be made here and we Americans are willing to spend it. So until I figure out how and until the BCS realizes we need a playoff system we are stuck watching 6-6 ball clubs. Maybe the NFL should adopt this therory then we won't have 10, and 11 win teams sitting at home during the playoffs.
