    Pathetic Big 12 bowls

    Do people agree that the Big 12's bowl lineup sucks bad? The last 3 bowls are absolute jokes!


    My ideal bowl lineup would look like this
    #1----BCS-Doesn't really matter
    #2----Cotton
    #3----Outback
    #4----Alamo
    #5----Sun
    #6----Holiday
    #7----Armed Forces
    #8----Las Vegas


    Feel free to add your own...it really doesnt make any sense to me that the Big 10, which sucks, has such great bowls.

    We need to drop the Pinstripe bowl ASAP. We also need a bowl in Florida every year.

    Agree, drop Pinstripe and get a Florida Bowl and Big 12 slate of bowls would be pretty good.

    Re: Pathetic Big 12 bowls

    The Gator bowl was a nice bowl. We should trade the Pinstripe for the Gator bowl to play an SEC team. Didn't the Big 12 used to play in the Gator Bowl? Whatever happened to that?

    Re: Pathetic Big 12 bowls

    What's so bad about the last 3 bowls?

    -Houston in an NFL stadium, NYC, and the old Cotton bowl in Dallas

    Look at some others' last 3 bowls
    Pac: San Fran, Las Vegas, Albequerque
    SEC: Memphis, Birmingham, Shreveport
    B10: Houston, Heart of Dallas bowl, Detroit (looks very similar to B12)
    Acc: Shreveport, DC, San Fran

    I don't really see how our last 3 are any worse. And as far as the high end bowls go, the B12 doesn't have the gigantic fan bases like the B10 or SEC to pull in bowls like the Outback or Capital One in Florida when there are great bowl games in Texas.

    I think the NCAA should make it a rule that you can't just throw the name of your company on a bowl. There has to be another name, related to the location or something. Meineke Car Care bowl of Texas, Kraft Fight Hunger, Russell Athletic bowl are just terrible names.

    Houston and Dallas aren't bad, I don't mind those. However, NYC is not a good bowl destination in the winter. 95% of people would rather go to Florida in the winter than NYC. And by 95%, I mean 99%. And by 99%, I really mean 100%.

    No way this would ever be enforced, but in theory - I like it. (I had a daydream that Hostess was a bowl sponsor yesterday btw - idk what it means, someone consult a dream book.)

    Re: Pathetic Big 12 bowls

    They are the last 3 bowls for a reason. If you only go .500 should you go to a good bowl?

    I'm not a fan of the Hostess Houston Bowl.. Little Debbie Dallas Bowl on the other hand I could like!

    Then most of the bowls would go away.

    I think it would be a great service if the Chick-fil-a bowl became the Chick-fil-a peach bowl, and the meineke car care bowl of texas became the meineke houston bowl.

    It's not Big Ten or SEC level but it is only slightly behind PAC 12.

    I read it as you wanted the company names to go away. You just want the bowl names reworded so they sound better to you.
