42 bowl games and 130 FBS teams?

Sure, we need more bowl games.  Maybe it is that time for the FARK UFIA Bowl

The CFP is not NCAA sanctioned. This is the NCAA thumbing their collective nose at the CFP.

The Participant Bowl sponsored by 6-wins Rental Car.

It's possible to think both (1) that there are too many bowls, and (2) stopping at the exact number of bowls needed to remind kids at exactly one mid-sized school that overachieved where they stand in the NCAA's power dynamics is a BS place to stop and not hold 1 more bowl.

If liberty is the extra team that gets a bowl game can pornhub sponsor it. Seems appropriate

Just curious. Who actually makes money off this latest bowl game? Transportation, room, and board for the teams ain't free.  The crowd (and ticket sales) will barely reach 4 figures if that.  I doubt it will get huge viewer numbers, especially if there are other bowl games to watch. I doubt it's cheaper to broadcast than talking heads for ESPN.  Everything revolves around money but I can't figure out where the money comes from in this case.

The remaining teams are projected to be Ball State and Hawaii. Unless that game is in Hawaii, it's going to be a hard sell to either team's alumni. "Come to the Leftover Bowl in Mobile!"

The Toilet Bowl is the game for the 1983 Civil War game between Oregon State and Oregon.

11 turnovers.
0 points scored.

/the last 0-0 tie ever

Speaking of, I don't *get* why Miami sees Christobal as a savior.

The guy walked into a program which had been great aside from a single-year blip and then Willie Taggert's partial year. He never even got the Ducks ranked as highly as Mike farking Bellotti did from time to time.

From HIS perspective? I get it. He's a Miami guy. He wants to get paid more, go home, and do cocaine off of slave labor immigrants. That's cool, that's his thing, and Oregon doesn't have much of that going around. And *if* he can turn around the ship there, he will always be ranked higher than Oregon even if they have a better team.

I want to see the Bill's Barbershop Bowl.

If Barstool can get a Bowl, WE can get a Bowl.

The MAC needs 8 teams bowling.

Add one more for the two teams that everyone wants to see, but are not eligible:

The Felon Bowl:   Texas vs Florida State.

It's too bad they still don't have ties in CFB, otherwise VT 0 \o/ 0 WF would be one of the all time memes in history.

The Vikings watched 15 others in a row play Russian Roulette with a Lions  brand pistol and walki away unwounded. I guess they didnt notice when the gun had a hangfire versus the Stillers and they thought it was safe

I don't understand how most bowl games make money, but they make a lot.  Ads, sponsorships, all the tickets sold, etc.

But what I don't understand is... everyone and their mother seems to get a bowl game these days.  It's just an extra game that means nothing.

Why don't they just... ADD AN EXTRA GAME to the season?  If you're gonna make up any excuse to send any mediocre (and sometimes, even downright bad) teams an extra game... why not just give it to everyone?  And then leave a very tiny selection of bowl games and playoffs for the truly great teams.

It has to do with some green pieces of paper. Calling an extra game a bowl generates more green paper than not calling the extra game a bowl.

Because with bowl games you get tourist money, fans that won't travel for a regular season game will pay the extra money to goto a bowl game. That's why one of the biggest factors the bowls look at when they are choosing their teams is how many fans travel for the team.

Heck bowl game use to be only for states with nice weather so the fans and teams could take a vacation while there, now even Boston has a Bowl game.

Here's an article about how much the colleges receive and the exact payments the leagues got in past years.

Football payouts.

They could have alumni who live in state. Plus the conference makes $300,000 for every team they get in a Bowl.

If you don't have a winning record you don't belong in a bowl game.

But why?  Why is anyone travelling or going out of their way to see a game between two mediocre or even bad teams?  It's just a game.  Just because it has a fancy name means nothing.

I mean, that'd be like the NFL putting the 8th and 9th seeded teams in each conference into a special extra fun game that means nothing and takes place outside of the playoffs just to generate extra revenue and call it <insert random company/brand here> Bowl.  Would people really travel out of their way to go to that?  Would it really get extra ratings?  Somehow, I doubt it.  Why would college be any different?

The NFL does that, but they call it the All-star bowl, made up of players whose teams are not good enough to make it to the big game. Yes it generates ratings and interest.
