The bowl season is reaching tipping point

December 18, 2014

I do love the college football bowl season.
Aside from March Madness, it is one of my favorite seasons of the year, but something has changed that has made getting to a bowl so much less significant.
There was a time where the bowls were confined to just a couple of days around the start of the year and only the best of the best were allowed to compete.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it was beyond time that the playoff system got underway, only the bowl system seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year.

For the full column, see the Wednesday, Dec. 17 edition of the MDR.
