    No, what they're saying is the NCAA is trying to guarantee that a 6-6 Iowa team makes it to a bowl next year...

    57% of all college football teams will go to a bowl next year. Ridiculous. I wish the NCAA would go back to when the bowl games meant something and they were a reward.

    ISU went 8-3 in 1976 and lost to three top ten teams (OU, Neb, OSU) and didn't go to a bowl. If that happened today, ISU would be playing in the cotton bowl.

    Clearly, the NCAA is not trying to pretend anymore. Instead of presenting themselves as the collegiate student-athlete governing body; they are showing everyone that they are a monopolistic corporation.

    Sounds like Navy vs. ACC in Washington D.C. and Big East vs. C-USA in St. Petersburg.

    Awesome, with so many bowls I can finally hope for the match up I've been dreaming of. Western Illinois Dental College vs. South Philly School for the Deaf. Should be a barn burner.


    It's Bushbama!

    I just wanna see the South Central Louisiana State University Mud-dogs beat the crap out of Iowa again.

    Maybe the Bourbon Bowl.

    There should be a limit of 20 bowl games.

    Re: Ncaa adds 2 new bowls , total now 34

    Honestly, with the way things are, two more bowls aren't that big of a deal to me. If the schools can pry some more money out of a couple of more corporate sponsors, then good for them.

    We just need to use this as a rule of thumb to keep some persepctive...the only bowls that are probably representative of any sort of athletic acheivement are those played on Dec 31 and later. The rest are probably just a money grab and shouldn't be used as evidence when bragging about how good the season was...

    The Congressional Bowl? I think the FBI has a new favorite bowl game given the cooks this bowl is named after and the current/future crooks that will be playing in it...
