Bowl Games for the Bottom Feeders

OK, maybe not the bottom feeders but come on, bowl games for 6th and 7th place in the Pac 10?

From Wolfs Blog:

The Versus Conference announced bowl arrangements with the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego and Hawaii Bowl for the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

The sixth place team goes to Hawaii in 2008 and seventh to San Diego, then it flip flops in 2009. Versus!

Obviously Wolf means the Pac 10 conference in his post.

This beats the hell out of me, as the Pac 10 isn't known for the money grab thus their reluctance to have the Rose Bowl join the BCS back in the day.

It's funny how the comments I recently posted by Jim Rome ring true:

[...] it would kill the bowl system as we know it. Fair enough ... far be it for me to get behind anything that would jeopardize those 30 bowl games, 27 of which no one cares about anyway.

So true Romey, so true! You can add two more to that list.
