For my final projection of the 2010 season, I will try to guess the 35 bowl lineup which begins December 18th. With that many bowls it is almost impossible to get it on the nose for any of them, but it will give you an idea of where your favorite team is on the totem pole. When you do something like this it brings into focus how much we need a playoff. It wouldn’t destroy the bowls. No one cares about the Little Caesars bowl now, they can continue to hold one once there is a playoff and nothing would change.
