Bowls on Rolls 

By Andy Dolich

The Bible told us it rained for 40 days and 40 nights until Noah's Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat. The NCAA went all biblical this year and created 40 days and nights for Bowls of Football -- OK, there are 41 but one is in Bermuda -- in the coming weeks, no matter what the weather. 

Breaking News! There is no Noah's Bagel Bowl.

I'm totally bowled over and confused. By the time the CFC (College Football Championship) is played at Levi's Stadium on January 7 we will have followed the Bowl road map throughout America.......and Bermuda. Incidentally the No. 1 Bowl of the Bowls does not have a corporate name. It's simply the College Football Playoff National Championship or CFPNC for short.

To help me better understand how millions of Americans will be spending hours of precious time over the next few weeks I put this complicated connectivity on my whiteboard connected by yards of thread.
