Bowl Season, 2012

I’m once again presenting a hypothetical bowl schedule as if it were just cut down to the essential (and classic) bowls.

I want to reiterate that I’m not trying to say that I wish this is the way things still were — I just think it’s fun to see how the old way of doing things might make things fall if they still existed today.
