Curious as to why. Personally, I think we should expand them.

I thought it was so stupid for D-1 football to be the lone holdout on having a playoff to determine a college champion on the field. We had it in essentially every other sport, including Baseball (Hoos winners), Hoops (Hoos winners), and every level of college football except D-1. The good ol boys of the bowls were trying to protect their financial interests. We now have a hybrid of the bowls and 4 teams. Better than it used to be but still not what it should be. It hasn't really happened yet, but if we don't expand we'll have a team not make the playoff cut and they would have had the potential to win it all. Especially if you factor in injury scenarios, of which there are countless. I say expand to at least 16 like the FCS and whoever is king of the hill after all the games is crowned the champ. The bottom half of the bowls are a joke away with most of them. If people are really worried about having to play too many games then do away with one or two of the cupcake OOC games.
