I heard this on the radio yesterday and I thought it was a little insane. Four cities have applied to the NCAA to host bowl games for next season. If all are approved the total number of bowl games could be as high as 43.
20 years ago there were 18 bowl games.
Personally, I'm not fond of 6-6 teams playing in the "Valvoline Nobody Cares Bowl". I think at least having a winning record should be required for post-season play.
