December 18th, 2015, 05:16 PM #1College Football Bowl Season
The College Football bowl season begins tomorrow with the first six games of a record total 40 bowl games, culminating in the final game of the College Football Playoffs, which is not to be played until January 11, 2016.
While some fans will revel in the plethora of games, I find the idea of 40 games ridiculous, especially considering the fact that bowl sponsors and conferences had to scrape the bottom of the barrel of teams and actually include three 5-7 teams to fill out the schedule.
One of these stalwarts, the San Jose State Spartans, plays tomorrow in the first-ever AutoNation Cure Bowl. SJS had the seventh-best record in the Mountain West Conference this season, finishing in third place in the conference’s West Division. Their opponent, the Georgia State Panthers, who finished in fourth place in the Sun Belt Conference, is equally impressive at 6-6.
What a battle that should be, and it’s only the very beginning of the Bowl season!

Well, the inaugural AutoNation Cure Bowl is over, and,......... (ready?)........ it was San Jose State over Georgia State, 27-16.
In what was obviously an IMMENSE financial success pitting the 5-7 Spartans against the 6-6 Panthers in a battle of the Mountain West conference's seventh best team against the Sun Belt conference's fourth best, a record crowd of 18,536 was packed into the Citrus Bowl's 60,219 seats.
This event clearly shows that 40 bowl games are not nearly enough. With more than three 5-7 teams out there, plus dozens more 4-8 teams, I look forward to next college football season that will climax with 50, maybe 60 bowl games. Some may even equal the 2015 AutoNAtion Cure Bowl's record attendance of 18,536.
