Last night, as I enjoyed Harris Teeter’s finest crab legs (in honor of the Baltimore Ravens) and a room chilled Heineken, or 2, (in honor of Holland) I began to think about design and the effect it must have on the Super Bowl.
Almost a month after this season’s first bowl game kickoff in New Mexico, it’s finally time for the highly anticipated Notre Dame – Alabama championship matchup. Unlike most other NCAA-sponsored sports, college football’s postseason does not utilize a traditional tournament to establish a champion but, rather, a bowl game system. What’s interesting is that the number of bowl games has grown substantially since the first 1902 Rose Bowl — most notably over the past few decades. ESPN recently featured an interesting infographic that effectively illustrates this trend.
