Okay, now the college football season is feeling closer (though it’s still 99 days away).

The Football Bowl Association released the 2012-13 bowl schedule today, with all 35 games being played over 17 days. So mark your calendars, and when the time comes, grab your favorite beverage and tune out all your in-laws that came in during the holiday season even though you told your husband/wife you didn’t have room for them.

    35 bowls.
    Last year 23 featured a 7+ win AQ team and/or a 9+ win non-AQ team and did not feature a 6 loss team.
    Seven wins should be required for a bowl bid.

    Shouldn’t that last game read:

    SEC Champion vs BCS No. 2

    Still a few too many after Jan 1. I go back to work, no travel for me.

    It’s just a beautiful thing to even be talking about football season and bowl games again!!!

    It’s been a long 4.5 months.

    I’m READY for some football.

    35 games 70 team playoff. Its too simple — use the bowls for a true playoff.

    Eliminate five bowl games and you can still accommodate the top seven teams from each of the five AQ conferences and the top five teams from each of the five non-AQ conferences.

    Why does it bother people that there are so many Bowl games? No one is forcing you to watch. No one is forcing you to go. It is one more chance for football players to play football. Where is the harm?

    There are inevitably bad match-ups (upper-tier teams from one conference playing average teams from another) or rematches (Neb-Was in ’11, Iowa St-Tulsa in ’12). Paring down the field would improve the match-ups.

    I definitely agree there are too many bowl games. A whole lot of unwatchable ones too. It waters down the whole system.

    24 team playoff with top 8 seeds getting a bye. 5 rounds of college football playoffs would be valued in the 10s of billions.

    Split the money between all D1 schools with playoff teams receiving some multiple of what non playoff teams receive. Conferences still get their individual regular season tv deals.

    More money for everyone, better post season, true champion, NCAA can finally award a national championship trophy.

    I’d like to see the ACC, Big 10, Big XII, Pac-12, and SEC in one division; and the AAC, C-USA, MAC, MWC, and SBC in another division. All 5 conference champions and 3 at-larges could comprise an 8-team playoff in each division. This would solve the “16 is too many” conflict. I’ve proposed a 16-team playoff in recent years and it gets a lot of backlash. I hear “8 would be perfect” very often. I don’t want to see Alabama vs Arkansas St in a 1st round playoff game.
