Too many bowl games

The NCAA approved three more bowl games on Thursday - that's 31 bowls next football season if you're scoring at home.

Nothing against the good folks in Birmingham, Ala., Albuquerque, N.M., or Toronto. It's not their fault for wanting a bowl game.

But what in the world is the NCAA thinking?

Thirty one bowl games? That means 62 teams will be playing in the postseason.

That may be fine for college basketball which has more than 300 teams playing in Division I. But with less than 120 playing college football, this is watering down the postseason experience.

Maybe the NCAA is looking for survival of the fittest. But what has happened is the postseason will be diluted with 6-6 teams playing each other for a "championship.''
