Re: Too many bowls?
When I was younger Marshall played in 1-AA (now the Championship Subdivision). Those playoff games were some of the most exciting--and money making--games in school history.
I wish that the big boys would adopt a 16 team playoff. It gives all conference champs a chance. Teams from the weaker leagues would usually get bounced and the power conferences would dominate. For instance, my freshman year MU went 15-0 and won the title game 49-20. The last few seasons in 1-AA provided clear evidence we needed to jump divisions. We would never have reached that level without a playoff system.
