he total of 40 team-competitive bowls, including the national championship game, is one less than the previous year, with the folding of the Poinsettia Bowl. While bowl games had been the purview of only the very best teams for nearly a century, this was the 12th consecutive year that teams with non-winning seasons participated in bowl games. To fill the 78 available bowl slots, a total of 15 teams (19% of all participants) with non-winning seasons will participate in bowl games—all 15 had scored a .500 (6–6) season.
To me it's a shame that enough fans watch this crap to sustain it. I've got the awful App State vs. Toledo bowl game going in the background right now because there's nothing else on TV and I live to have the TV on. But I doubt it I watch any of the other ones other than the CFP and the LSU/Notre Dame game.
This is just ridiculous. The NCAA needs to say that if you want to be in the NCAA this bowl crap has to stop and we're just going to have a NCAA tournament like they have in all other sports.
