If you would've asked me yesterday, I would've said we need to reduce the amount of bowl games, and to only accept 8-4 teams, at the minimum. But after reading this, hell with it, and let Akron play in a bowl game. 

For those that aren't aware, the NCAA permits Bowl Sponsor's to give gifts "swag" to the players. For example, a kid from my high school was on Ohio U's team a few years ago, and got a Google Chromebook, an IPad, a PS4,  and various other gifts, from the various bowl games. 

Edit: After reading this from Mack, I texted my buddy that was on the team to get his thoughts, and he said the travel was priceless. Said several of his teammates were having a blast building sandcastles (Bahamas Bowl), because it was the first time they had been on a beach.
