There are like 350 teams, and 64 seeds so you have to be in the top 20-or-so-% of D1.
That's a lot tougher than in college football, all you need is six wins to qualify for a bowl invite.
There were what, 34 bowl games this year. 68 teams. Out of 120 in college football. You don't even have to be in the top 50% of the league.
Woooooooooo, we made the Phyllis and Bob's Steakhouse and Fine Flatware Emporium Chewing Gum Bowl and Grammar Jamboree!!!! And we did it being 6-6!!!!!!!
I for one, believe that this is a dumb move motivated by dollar signs.
