    Re: Catch-All Thread for all the other bowl announcements

    They do play the Cotton Bowl game in Jerry World... the Heart of Dallas Bowl, a much lesser bowl, will be played at the actual Cotton Bowl stadium.

    I don't. Maybe they can go by Fairfield, to see what a steel mill looks like.

    It was more along the lines that they would face a ULM team from 30 miles down the road that they used to play every year up until the early 90's. They have this attitude that ULM is nothing more than a Junior College and did not want to tarnish their elite, snobbish name by maybe getting their arse handed to them by a team they think is inferior. Serves them right.

    Re: Catch-All Thread for all the other bowl announcements

    Wow.............both Florida teams got hosed. And U$C..............the team that was practically crowned champs, before the season started, they get to play................GT!

    Yes, Nutter Dumber's Southern nemesis gets their chance to really wreck (pun intended) Lame Kitten's season. Doubt it will happen, but one can pray.

    OTOH...........their D is rather porous.

    I think this is the worse bowl match ups I've ever seen.

    The Heart of Dallas Bowl was apparently on the table for La Tech until Oklahoma got bumped to the Cotton. The Independence Bowl basically told them take us or leave it on Saturday. When the BCS fell the way it did, Tech was out in the cold.

    Hilarious outcome for LA Tech. They were trying to find a better bowl and didn't want to have to play their neighbor, LA Monroe. What a terrible decision.

I believe Coach Saban even quipped about the Bowl game a couple of years ago when making a point about not following the process or something
    No, the Independence has the 10th pick of SEC teams. There were only 9 that were Bowl eligible.

    Re: Catch-All Thread for all the other bowl announcements

    Too many teams on probation has really hurt this season's bowl match ups.Penn State, Ohio State, North Carolina, and Miami all being sanctioned at the same time really open the flood gates for the likes of Ball State, Kent State, Toldeo, Louisiana-Monroe, Central Michigan, etc. If just one of those four teams were not serving a bowl ban, Northern Illinois would be nowhere near going to a BCS Bowl.
