10 Cities That Should Host a College Football Bowl Game

When it comes to college football bowl games, it is really an all-or-nothing mentality. You either feel there's too many, or not enough.

For those who think the number of bowls—which balloons to a record 39 this year, thanks to four new games and the championship of the inaugural College Football Playoff—far exceeds what seems reasonable, we've got some news for you: too bad, because they're not going away anytime soon.

For those who feel there are not enough bowls, well, you're in luck. There are more coming, as the Cure Bowl in Orlando is set to debut in 2015, and several other proposed games could be added next year or soon thereafter.

But why stop there? Why can't it be like Oprah Winfrey is handling the bowl season, throwing out games and game invites here and there? "You get a bowl game! You get a bowl game! Everyone gets a bowl game!"

Not enough 6-6 teams? Heck, let them all in! Who says the bowl games have to all pit great teams against each other? Those goodie bags that players receive from the various bowls could count toward whatever compensation college players might someday receiver for their services, with the cost of those items coming out of the massive heaps of TV profits collected by FBS football programs.

Truth be told, a system that in its current state will send nearly 60 percent of its teams into the postseason is far beyond one that is intended only to reward the best of the best. So with that in mind, we have identified 10 cities that would be a great place to throw yet another bowl game onto the schedule.
