Some good ideas and points. If I were commish I would change all bowls outside of the playoffs to exhibitions- like they used to be in the old days. Make them rewards for a great season and let teams play their 2nd-3rd string, non-starting seniors, walk-ons, etc. There is no other sport on the planet with 4-6 weeks between competitions. It is impossible to stay motivated and treat these games like regular season games. So let's drop the pretense and label them the exhibitions that they are.
