That's the thing, I know we're never going back to the old bowl system, so we might as well expand it and get all the P5 conferences in it. I kind of liked 8, but the bowls have become so crappy that 12 or 16 wouldn't really upset me anymore.The other bowls have become less relevant. I don’t really think that’s debatable. When you have more and more players opting out of bowl games it’s hard to argue that those games are particularly relevant. The Oklahoma vs Florida bowl game is a prime example. Football purists like myself (or my former self I guess) would contend that should be a marquee game. Two powerhouse programs battling it out in a bowl game. And it was a joke because so many players opted out it wasn’t even the same teams that played throughout the season. When the players don’t care it’s tough for fans to care.
Playoff expansion is going to happen. It’s not if, it’s when. At this point, I’m ready. I’m tired of watching the same 6 or 7 teams compete in the only postseason games that seem to matter anymore. Might as well make it more interesting, at least interesting enough that the players actually want to play the games.
I think people are already loosing interest in seeing the same few teams in the top 4 every year. I know I am. With every conference getting in, players know they have a shot at whichever conference they play for.
