College Football Adds Bowls 34, 35: Seventy out of 120 teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision will reach college bowl games over the next four years, now that the Dallas Football Classic and New Era Pinstripe Bowl in New York have been approved by the NCAA as the 34th and 35th bowls.

Do they have a plan on what will happen if enough teams fail to qualify for bowl play? Will the lower bowls get cut out?

Look, it's easy to pick the top teams ... but it's more difficult to select the worst. How about we come up with the SportsFilter Bowl? We select the eight worst FBS teams, match them in a tournament format (now there's novel concept), then we decide who sucked just enough to advance.

We don't even need big bucks to throw out there ... $2.98 should be enough.

I'm still waiting for somebody to revive the Salad Bowl.

No, they'll play football, but instead of helmets they will wear ball caps.
