Makes sense I guess....Covid is crazy and gives the Kansas' of the world something to shoot for.

how does this work for contract incentives tied to bowl appearances

<edit> I guess it doesn't mean all teams are GOING to bowls, but there will definitely be teams under .500 that go and I'd be willing to bet ADs didn't assume they'd be paying sub .500 coaches bonuses.

I’m sure I’ll get downvoted for saying it, but it’s highly unlikely there will be bowl games. I could see the playoffs happening in a bubble due to the money involved, but I don’t see the rest of the bowls happening when looking at the projections.
Seems like they're throwing it out there as ANY chance for more football/TV money and the more teams the merrier.

To cut down on high risk behavior though, do you have teams host bowls and the like?

On one hand, bowls are private organizations, so they can somewhat do what they want.

But one of the main purposes of a bowl game is local economic return. If you don’t have many fans, not sure how the cost/benefit could work out. I guess the key is whether their corporate sponsors still back them.

Looking at Nebby’s schedule, I am guessing 3-5. I would love to see them go to a bowl game. Lol.

While every team is eligible, there are only about 39 bowl games so your teams like Rutgers and Kansas will likely not be playing in a bowl.

They were in a bowl a few years ago with a losing record so not new for this historic program.
