I’m not sure I even have to make an argument about this; it’s self-evident to me on the basis of this one article and its implications:
ACC Sends Record Ten Teams to Bowls
The current bowl system is an absolute joke, and not a funny one at that. Ten ACC teams are going to bowl games (and with one more win, assumedly, UVa would as well). I’m an ACC fan, but the truth is that the ACC this year was a muddled mishmash of mediocrity, and if the bowls were interested in having two good football teams face each other, there might be three ACC teams going (let’s say Tech, BC, and Florida State).
And I’m not even talking about the morass that is the BCS.
I think that the best thing fans could do for college football is to ignore the bowls, the ridiculous spectacles that most of them are, and perhaps we could get the playoff that makes so much sense that only a collection of college presidents could miss that point.
