I am one that wishes they would have stuck with the historical names of bowls if they have one. I am fine with sponsors, similar to Playstation Fiesta Bowl. But not changing the name of the bowl every time the sponsor changes. Like the Cheezit Bowl.The only thing that really matters is the bowl payouts. The historical relevance and prestige of these bowls, has for the most part, been thrown out the window. Additionally, all of our bowls are against P5 schools, which makes for good matchups in my opinion.
That would at least make some of these bowls feel more traditional. If we still had bowls like the Copper, (Guarnteed Rate), Tangerine, Sunshine Classic(Both used for Cheezit, Citrus).
I do think a few have went back to classic names, but there are a few that still could.
