    Bowl Games Proposal

    This one is just for fun...I love to ignore reality! Or, to quote Walter Mosley, "...nostalgia---the greatest enemy of human logic."


    Big Ten, Pac 12, Big 12, SEC...ignore all the rest of the conferences; they just don't match up most years, anyway; the AD's from these four would get together and take care of the details. Also, tell the BCS to take a hike...they have done enough damage.

    So...

    Rose Bowl: Big Ten champ vs Pac 12 champ
    Cotton Bowl: Big 12 champ vs SEC champ

    Alamo Bowl: Big Ten #2 vs Big 12 #2
    Outback Bowl: Pac 12 #2 vs SEC #2


    Want to add a +1? Let the bowls bid on the winners of the Rose and Cotton; or, just give this game to the Rose Bowl. Even more fun? Play the +1 in the stadium of the participating team that has the highest academic scores, GPA, grad rates.

    Let the rest of the bowl system be what it will be. I am fine with giving as many kids as possible a chance to travel to a bowl game during their college football careers. I would support the idea of a minimum record of 7-5 to get to a bowl.

    Stay out of the debate about a process to select a national champ...let the ratings be what the ratings will be. I doubt there would be many years when the national champ would not end up being either one of the winners of the above conf. champ bowls, or the winner of a +1.

    Random thoughts:

    ...watch some of the powers in football scramble to get into one of the 4 big conferences

    ...I would play the champs bowls on new years day
    ...I would play the #2 matchups on new years eve day
    ...I would play the +1 on a Sat. as soon as would be reasonable after the champs bowls

    ...I picked the Rose Bowl because its the Rose Bowl (see "nostalgia" quote above)
    ...I picked the Cotton Bowl because I don't really care where its played
    ...I picked Outback and Alamo because they are the best bowls I have ever attended and the cities are really cool (I've never been to a Rose Bowl)

    ...let the networks bid on THESE bowls and watch the $ flow!
    ...watch these bowls put on the dog because they WILL sell out every year.

    Any insults leveled at me in regard to this plan will be traced to the author and his/her address will be given to a guy named Frankie "Fingers" Marconi who lives down the street from me.

    You know nothing about the P12. No way they would travel to Florida for a number 2 bowl. You would need to switch the P12 with the Big Ten. Then go down one more level and to have the SEC / P12 and B1G / B12 match-up. But, you would have to do it in Texas as well, because that is as far as the P12 people would likely go.

    I'm not saying acedemics shouldn't be involved in college football, but the SEC is involved, so it makes the scenario totally unrealistic
