Mind Games with Guerin Emig: Time to pay the players? Bowl season executive director Nick Carparelli offers an option for getting players to opt into college football’s postseason.
Before we put away college football until spring scrimmages, a review of the 2023 bowl season seems in order. It wasn’t great due to the number of transfers, opt-outs and other distractions that made for matchups like Georgia 63, Florida State 3 in the Orange Bowl. Bowl Season executive director Nick Carparelli joins me on this episode of Mind Games to talk about whether the bowls face a crisis moving forward (his answer: no), and what might be done to help the product (two Carparellis suggestions: opening the possibility of player compensation for bowl participation, and the elimination of the December transfer portal window).
