Big East Adds Another Bowl

I’m simultaneously excited and amused by today’s news that the Big East added another bowl and upgraded another. On the one hand, there are already so many bowls out there this announcement makes the whole college football “post-season” seem even more bloated. On the other hand, this announcement makes the Alabama bowl moderately more interesting since that bowl now involves an SEC opponent and the other bowl is at least in Florida, where the weather will be a whole lot better than Toronto.
Now Rutgers just needs to win the Big East and go to a BCS bowl so none of this will matter.
