Re: Too many bowls?
Hey now. As an alumnus of Kent State University, I have to say it would have been nice if they had made a bowl, because I don't know if they've ever done it before. 6-6 is about the best they've been since forever.
I think the greater number of bowls has helped teams in mid-major conferences like the MAC get more recognition and more teams into post-season play. If they dropped the number of bowls, it would be good teams from the mid-major conferences that would miss out. IIRC, in the days with fewer bowl games, selection committees would rather extend an invite to a mediocre team from a major conference than a good team from a mid-major conference.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
