I agreSatsuma, football needs to wake up. Everything else in the world is a tournament at the end. Get rid of bowls already and have at least a 16 team playoff. I would prefer 32 with 2 weeks off before the championship. It's not that hard to figure out.
Season ends before thanksgiving, tourney starts first week of December and ends the second week of January. No one misses class that wasn't missing already. And the fans get exactly what they want. Tv makes millions. And everyone knows for sure who the best team was.
