It has become common to say that there are too many bowls and to make the joke that my grandfather used to always make, “the only bowl Team X should be in is the Toilet Bowl.” But I actually like the randomness of Bowls and the fact that there are 35 bowls, some of which contain games that you couldnt force most fans to watch if you tied them down. Stewart Mandel (EZ’s favorite radio guest) has done a column ranking the Bowls from 1-35 in terms of interest and suggesting which we should watch and which we should ignore. The Cats game vs Pittsburgh is ranked at #27, which seems low, but it still four spots higher than where Louisville is ranked playing in the Beef O’Bradys Bowl.
For what its worth, the last Bowl is the New Orleans Bowl where Ohio plays Troy. Since it is officially the worst Bowl, it will be the Bowl that BTI will likely make multiple posts about in the leadup to kickoff.
