Bowl Game Thoughts
This year, there were 39 post-season bowl games scheduled, involving 76 college football teams. There are only about 125 FBS (1A) major college football teams from which the bowls pick their teams. They are eligible for selection if they have won six games during the season. If FBS teams played only FBS teams, this would be a mathematical impossibility, but many FBS teams include games with a “lower level” FCS (1AA) team, which usually is an automatic victory counted toward the six needed for bowl eligibility.

It’s a sad commentary that the candidates for the 2016 Presidential election have already been narrowed down to Hillary Clinton (and no one else) on the Democratic side and either Jeb Bush or George Romney (again) or just possibly, Chris Christie on the Republican side.
But here's news! It ain't going to happen that way automatically. The real challenge to our electoral process is for all Americans to make it happen that way. And that process will not start with anyone who depends on the present way elections are funded for the office they hold. It starts with individual voters. They must pressure all elected officials to stop ignoring this problem. Sooner or later, our political leaders will catch on. Or they won't remain our leaders for very long. Vox populi, vox dei, as they say in Latin.
