    NCAA approved more bowl games

    Wrigley Field and Myrtle Beach among the likely new venues for two of the three new bowl games. Sooooooo, now there will be 43. 85% of FBS teams can now go bowling. Almost like creating a participation trophy.

    When Northwestern play Illinois at Wrigley in 2010, the field wasn't long enough so they both had to go the same way. I don't understand the novelty of playing football at these old baseball parks.

    Rose,Sugar, Orange, Cotton, and Gator Bowl was it for a long time. I remember when the Bluebonnet Bowl and Liberty Bowl were added. There was the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando but it was for smaller schools. And now there's 42 or 43 games.

    A bowl game nowadays means as much as getting laid in a whore house.
