With kids opting out, will most bowls become the new "Spring Game"?

Bunch of scrubs left over after upperclassmen opt out

How will be different than most spring scrimages?


Discuss.

There is nothing to discuss... for many it will be a pre-spring practice

Bowls are a scourge on the sport of college football. They need to die in all forms, at all levels, ASAP.

They're about as meaningful as spring ball.

Excuse me… our underclassmen aren’t scrubs.

They've always been essential to establishing the off season championship claims.

Not that a bowl game has ever been required to make such a claim.

Your team is doing their part to eliminate bowls.

Technically been that way since the BCS started.

Cancel bowl games and allow a true spring game against another opponent

Now games are now so coaches can see what they have on the roster for next year. If I’m Alabama I start whichever QB performs best during bowl prep and start the second player the second half. I would want to know what I have as I enter the portal to fill holes.

Perhaps, though it wouldn't be new ground for some teams

The aggies have been counting their spring game as a win for years now

I equate a Spring Game with playing your own team (split).

I think these bowl games with non-starters could be considered maybe more of a Jamboree?

Why not have both. The bowl games do serve a purpose in charities and other things. They provide an economic impact for the cities that host them. Why not keep them and still aloe teams to schedule a spring game against a different team. We get more football that way.

Could move them all to Labor Day weekend of next year. Teams can turn down invite if they want.

Bowl games have been unimportant for years.

They should do away with them once the 12 team playoff begins.

Keep some. B1G fans and players who have probably never even seen the ocean probably love going to the Gator/Outback/Citrus/Holiday.

If anything, it has come full circle and outside of 2 bowl games and the CFP NCG, the bowls are meaningless exhibitions.

It means something when your team wins, and means absolutely nothing when your team loses.

I guess they have their reasons but seems to me like bowl week would be a fun experience. Kids are treated really well at most bowls. But, maybe they just don't want that extra 3 weeks of practice.

How do you call it a spring game when players playing won’t be back

I would love to see spring games against other teams actually.
