How many more bowl games would North Texas have appeared in if 6 wins always meant you got a bid? (Throughout history)
How many more, if winning 5 games got us in? (For those teams that only played a 9 or 10 game season.
Would any team in the past would have gone to a bowl if not for having to go the playoffs route?
Would Mason Fine, Derek Thompson, Austin Aune and others be in any conversation of “Best Ever” if they played in the 70’s; where QB’s didn’t pass more than 20 or 25 times max per game? Or, if they had 2 Running Backs in the backfield. Or, only 2 receivers? Or, when they took every snap from under center? Or, if their 6 or 7 game season didn’t take them anywhere?
