    Seems rediculous when I see the following 6-6 teams play in a bowl game:
    • Purdue
    • Rice
    • Iowa State
    • Air Force
    • Minnesota
    • Duke
    • Central Michigan
    • Western Kentucky
    Maybe there are too many Bowls if these teams are getting bowl invites.

    Hell no theres not too many Bowl games. I mean yes some of them have ridiculous names, but who cares, beats watching basketball.

    HAHA, fair enough. I just found it shocking to see so many bad teams playing in bowl games. But you are right. Better than basketball. Or hockey for that matter. NHL can't even be bothered to start up again.

    Of course there are too many bowl games. The best part is the school is on the hook for a good amount of tickets for the game and NO ONE is travelling to see a 6-6 team.

    Yep.

    Really makes them kind of pointless. Is it really an accomplishment to go to the Payless Shoe Source Bowl?

    We need more bowl games.I was going to suggest the First Tennessee/Jack Daniels Whiskey bowl to be played on the site of Bonnaroo every year. They never responded to my email.

    Now that Marijuana is legal in Colorado word is they are planning a 420 Bowl to start in a few years. The winning team will get a trophy that looks like a half eaten bag of Doritos
