    Duluth. In a hockey rink in the UP. Siberia comes to mind.

    There used to be the same number of teams. Basketball tourney vs. Bowl games. Yet nobody complains about all of the lousy basketball games. Don't care either way just saying.

    Kirk himself said this morning on a radio show you should have to have a winning record.

    Creating more bowls is liking creating a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

    Long term solution for them will be to allow more teams to become D-1 programs, thus making their quota of teams with at least a 6-6 record. But then they'd just add more bowls and the cycle would never end.

    Enjoy yourself. I'll be inside where it's warm or at a bowl destination where shirt sleeves are enough.

    7-5 for a P5 school mostly likely has non winning record in conference. Nah

    Ran a jaunt up to Wrigley once we go to the Chicago Bowl-a likelihood by 2024-by the wife last night. Didn't go real well. She looked at me like it was the dumbest idea she's ever heard from me. And I've had some really dumb ideas before.

    Has anyone ever seen Gary Barta and Jim Delaney together in the same room?

    Actually like the idea. 1) more football, the better 2)close proximity--many can easily make game. Games in FL/CA, etc cost more money and time and even planning (a vacation) 3) LOVE cold weather football--every time we lose to a FL school in Florida, or Texas school in Texas, I complain that we would whop em if they played us back home, instead of their backyard.

    Don't understand why ppl complain about more football. Jeez, if 200 kids teams only reached 6-6--let them feel important for 3 hours and play in a dam bowl game

    I'm all for more football but playing it on a baseball field in late December is a dumb idea IMO

    I love it, a bowl game in the midwest! Make those warm weathered schools come play football in the midwest. Heck if tickets were reasonable I might go.

    The tickets are usually cheap.

    Almost a certainty 5-7 teams will go on the regular now. Should eliminate three of them.
