    Dude, it's capitalism to its fullest extent.

    No bowl exists to make students feel better about themselves for a job well done (and no bowl ever has existed for that reason). The bottom line is that the stake-holders (tv and the bowls themselves as "non-profits" and to a lesser extent probably the communities where they exist) all make more money (they think) if they can have access to even a 4-5 P5 team. Not to mention the pure math of it all - there was a real chance that there would be way too few teams with winning records to fill all the bowl slots (probably a little less risk now that more leagues are playing, but could still happen).

    To the extent that this is about "rewarding" anyone it's about rewarding brands for having a large following.

    Yep. As long as the financial incentives are there...

    Guess you are against the proposal Coach K and the rest of the ACC coaches brought forward that every team should be a part of the NCAA tournament this year.

    Sadly I agree with you there. I posted this in the basketball thread a few weeks ago when this made the news and said the same. I think this is a dead issue anyway for seemed lack of support outside the ACC.

    All these chicken places springing up. In a half mile stretch, we've now got a KFC, Chik-Fil-A, Popeyes, Zaxbys, and Canes. And that's in addition to the McDonald's, Wendys, Burger King, & Arby's that already had chicken items.

    Dang liberal PC chicken ... everyone gets a trophy. Probably a conspiracy by the chicken media.

    With ONE winning season since copycatting Tech by moving up to FBS in 1994, ULM says “so you’re saying there’s a chance?”

    There may too many bowl games, but there will never be too much fried chicken.

    Told my wife, now that she's retired that we would attend the Hawaii and Bahamas Bowl should Tech ever be in them. Not this year!

    (and no, on the short notice, a mere weeks provided, no way could either of us get away from our jobs on such short notice...but now, that is no longer an issue)

    Re: 2020-25 C-USA Bowls

    A few bowls have announced their intentions to postpone their annual games to the 2021 season due to the pandemic. Those bowls include the Bahamas Bowl, the Celebration Bowl, the Fenway Bowl, the Hawai'i Bowl, the Holiday Bowl, the Quick Lane Bowl, and the Redbox Bowl. *The Montgomery Bowl will be played as substitute of the Fenway Bowl for this season only. A decision regarding the Las Vegas Bowl will be announced in the near future.
