If it's not the playoffs or a top-tier bowl game (maybe 6-8 of those), these bowls should be looked at as a tryout for next year's players and a view of the future.
Deep teams won't struggle like thin teams with one star that carries them, but it's the new reality. I feel kinda bad for the bowl games that get shunned by the players publicly, but business is business.
It seemed like the CBS broadcast team made a specific point of NOT bringing up players that had skipped the bowl any more than absolutely necessary.
When a player actually skips the Rose Bowl (which will happen at some point soon), we'll know that bowl games (and not paying players) are officially on their way out...
