I really think that there is way too many bowl games, it should be to reward programs for a great season not a meteoric one …. To be honest I was hoping that onces there was a playoff format that the number of bowl games would be reduced not increased!

There are also more FBS teams. Look how many teams have joined just in the last 10 years. I understand everyone wants quality, but the NCAA, ESPN, and these colleges and universities want to make money. I love to see more bowl games every year. Gives me lots more entertainment. The only complaint I can make, is that ESPN is pretty much in control of the whole “bowl season” market. I’d like to see more games on free networks, such as Fox, NBC, ABC. So that everyone can enjoy.
