    I hope so. Means less bowls I'd assume, and hopefully less bad teams. We just need to win more, and hopefully we are headed there.

    Then they better decrease the number of bowls 25%.

    Re: Bowl eligibility going to 7 wins?

    With so many bowl slots, will there be enough eligible teams with a 12 game schedule?

    Good, too many bowls.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    This would be the perfect time for the Big XII to go to 12 teams and get that extra non conference game.

    Re: Bowl eligibility going to 7 wins?

    Tough call. With all the momentum I'd think 7 wins is a good possibility most years here. I also know that we wouldn't be to a bowl game yet under CPR with 7 needed wins, and I think 2 out of 3 years is pretty good imo.

    This won't change the number of bowls.

    This would be horrible for programs like ISU that are often on the edge for bowl contention as it is.

    I dont see why there'd be such a push for this. You dont have to watch the game if you dont want to. The only teams that are going to benefit are the elites that will benefit from their opponents getting less exposure, and minor conference teams that got to more wins (but mightve gotten left out) because they played cake schedules.

    All about programming. Who would watch ISU or Texas or OSU play the sisters of the poor?

    In summary, that 9th conference game is very attractive to Fox and ESPN/ABC. They would rather broadcast a Big 12 match up as opposed to a KSU/Tulsa match up. Money talks, and 9 games are here to stay.
