Look, I agree there may be too many bowl games now, but for crying out loud stop bitching about it so much. If it bothers you so much, just stop watching the bowls you aren’t interested in. If the bowls didn’t make money they wouldn’t have so many. The fact that they ARE making money means they’ll continue to play them.
As as far as I’m concerned it’s a nice consolation gift to the players, even if I don’t watch their particular bowl game.
