Am I the only one who believes we have waaaaay too many bowl games and that the way we now name them have gone beyond ridiculous?   I was fine when we had the Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, Liberty Bowl and a few others, but now if a sponsor can rent out a stadium, and invite a couple of colleges with unimpressive records, they got themselves a Bowl.  And then they get to have fun naming it - Famous Idaho Potato Bowl,   Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl,   Little Caesars Pizza Bowl,    Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, etc....  And if the sponsor can pay enough money they can rename one of those old established Bowls to whatever they want.

Though I will say the GoDaddy Bowl could have commercials worth waiting for.

It's gotten out of hand.  I have no problem with "X Bowl sponsored by Y" or the "AT&T Cotton Bowl."

I remember when the bowls had the classic names.

Chick-Fil-A Bowl aka Peach Bowl
Outback Bowl aka Hall of Fame Bowl
Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl aka Copper Bowl
Capital One Bowl aka Citrus Bowl/Tangerine Bowl
AdvoCare V100 Bowl aka Independence Bowl

I've heard that Chick-Fil-A Bowl is going back to the Peach Bowl next year due to the playoff system.

My alma mater, the good ol' University of North Texas Eagles, finally got into a bowl game!  Congratulations to the mighty fighting Eagles!

That's the one Jameis Winston should be playing in.

Couldnt they combine the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl with the Fight Hunger Bowl?
