#DearAndy has moved to Facebook. SI's Andy Staples will now take your questions live every week in a Facebook Live video chat on Wednesdays from Campus Rush's Facebook page.

In this week's #DearAndy, Andy Staples answers your questions on…

Are there too many bowl games? Is more really better when some 5–7 teams are now making the postseason? Would changing the bowl-eligibility requirement to seven wins be an improvement?

What’s the next step after Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette opted not to play in their bowl games to get ready for the NFL draft? Will players submit a list of bowl games they will or won’t play in? Will they skip nonconference games? Would anyone ever sit out a College Football Playoff game?
