More Bowl games

Post

Here is a link to an article about 3 new Bowl games being added;

New bowls push FBS postseason to 42 games, needing 82 teams - Yahoo Sports

At least one of them is for a CUSA maybe two, depending on what articles you read. On CBS Sports it  said two were CUSA/Mtn. West match-ups.

C.mon Owls, get Bowl Eligible! BE the Bowl!

Makes you wonder if they will be able to find enough teams with at least a 6-6 record in every year going forward.

Well as of now the BigBoys (Power 5) take up ALL the 6-6 slots, even over MUCH better records from the Group of 5. So this WILL give group of 5 schools a chance to play in a Bowl game, especially if over 6-6 and even a few 6-6 small fish like us!

Like in any monopoly situation, the power dominates all financial decisions, thus all the "old" mid-level bowls are gone from our reach. Unless we go 13-0!

Why don't they just cut to the chase an send every team who plays to a bowl game. I mean seriously, it's not anything special anymore!

Simply money - that's it.

82 of 127 teams go to a Bowl??

That mean's the lower 35th percentile is playing in the post season.

Laughable.

Again, these are having to be created by the Networks and Group of 5 programs  as the other "opportunities" have been taken away by the 6-6 vs. 6-6 Big10 vs. Big12 matchups! Meanwhile, much more deserving Group of 5 teams get left out.

Think about it. A SEC team can actually go 2-6 in SEC play if they win their 4 OOC games (usually only one MAX BigBoy match-up along with three body bag games (including a FCS game) and be Bowl eligible. And then picked pretty much for sure over ANY group of 5 team.
