Booger McFarland calls Florida State effort to extend bowl streak ‘a disgrace’

Saturday was the start of bowl season, which means college football fans will be subjected to 41 bowl games over the next 23 days. It’s obviously a paradise for a wide contingent of college football followers, but it surely isn’t for others.

ESPN analyst Booger McFarland argued Sunday that there are too many bowl games and used Florida State as an example as to why.

Florida State rescheduled a postponed game against Louisiana Monroe and played it on Championship Saturday in order to reach the 6-6 mark to earn a bowl bid. The Florida State-Louisiana Monroe matchup was originally cancelled because of Hurricane Irma in September.

No other program rescheduled non-conference tilts cancelled because of that storm, so while McFarland has a point, the rescheduled game hurt no one. Just as it hurts nobody to have 41 bowl games rather than 10 or 20 or 30.

If you aren’t interested in all 41 bowl games or the Florida State matchup with Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl, then watch something else.
