    UL Football Re: Bowl Game Shuts Down

    Again mike almost 100% of basketball teams get to participate in post season play unless their regular season champs are the NCAA bound teams. Yes, a conference tournament is a post season event, and by being in such events provides teams with an opportunity to play for a national championship. It is like comparing a ten ounce ball and a ten once brick. You can't except on a balance scale. Football allows but four teams an opportunity to play for a nationals championship after the regular season.

    Regardless I am not here to debate if these bowls will continue, but if they deserve an opportunity to continue. IMO the market should determine that, not some jack___ on tv complaining because he is forced to watch a game he isn't interested in{which he isn't) or watching what? Nothing.

    Bowls and post season play (on your resume) are to Universities as loss leaders are to business success.

    An absolute must do experience!

    I agree with that as I would never turn down a bowl game regardless if I think the kids deserve it or not or how much it costs. Downside is too much of a negative others can use against you. You also get extra practice time which can be helpful the following year. Same reason I would never turn down the pay to play tournaments.

    All basketball teams get to play in the end of season conference tournaments. As such, I don't consider those games to be post season play. I do agree that the market will drive the no. of bowls going forward and that is as it should be.

    Why would anyone be against a university advertising?

    Post season games are the absolute cheapest way for future contemplative students to hear organic name drops.
