RE: Pinstripe Bowl/Notre Dame
If UC can't win out the AAC, I'd like to see a Notre Dame v. Cincinnati Pinstripe Bowl. Would be huge for several reasons:

1) Obviously the Brian Kelly angle.
2) Greater Cincinnati has been a pipeline for Notre Dame for decades. Cincinnati has a very large Catholic population. A lot of people around here would be very interested in this matchup.
3) The two schools are geographically close to one another. Always good to see two schools within a 3-4 hours get it on.

I would pass on seeing them "get it on"..

Besides the juvenile joke I think a Cincy and ND game would be good. More hype then any other possible game out there for us.07-coffee3

I fail to see how that is all that relevant considering the game would be in the Bronx!

RE: Pinstripe Bowl/Notre Dame
I think what we'll be seeing-
UCF- Sugar
Louisville- Champs
Cincy- Belk
Rutgers- Pinstripe
Houston- BBVA
If SMU can beat Houston- they would go to Beef O'Brady's.

If Rutgers loses out, Pinstripe would only have Houston as a choice- or SMU if they beat them.

RE: Pinstripe Bowl/Notre Dame
BK on our bowl options. He wants warm weather it seems.
Quote:Almost every published bowl projection now has the Irish landing in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Dec. 28 against a team from what used to be the Big East — the American Athletic Conference.

Losses by Indiana, Northwestern and Tennessee over the weekend expanded those bowl options by virtue of the Big Ten and SEC not being able to fill all their contracted bowl slots.

Could there be a dark horse that derails what seems like a natural matchup?

Kelly said Sunday there are times that bowl destinations can give his team a recruiting bump, depending on the location (El Paso is a good example where that was not the case), but when he gives his input to athletic director Jack Swarbrick, Kelly said that won’t be a consideration at all this time.

“I want this to be a reward for our seniors,” Kelly said, “so the bowl opportunity for our team is going to be, in large degree, the input that I’ve gotten from our seniors and where they’d like to go and where they’d like to play.”

So if you’re a 22-year-old and mulling Shreveport, La., Dallas, Detroit, Memphis, Birmingham, New York, San Diego, etc., it certainly would seem to bring the low-paying, but geographically alluring Poinsettia Bowl back into play.

Also when you look at the ACC bowl alignment for 2014 and beyond, of which ND will be a part starting next season, New York and Detroit are on the list as is Florida three times, El Paso, North Carolina and Tennessee. California, where the Poinsettia is played, is not.

The Poinsettia matches the No. 2 pick from the Mountain West Conference against Army,. which is already out of the bowl picture. The logistical problem if ND did have interest is the bowl’s backup contract with the Mid-American Conference.

“We would not renege on our agreement with the Mid-American Conference,” Poinsettia Bowl executive director Bruce Binkowski said Sunday night. “We have a long-standing relationship with them, either as a backup or a primary team through 2019. And I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that.”

He also said he hasn’t been in discussions with anyone but the MAC to this point, but knows there can be backdoor deals struck between teams, leagues and bowls.

“The only way those work is if everybody could be made happy and whole,” he said.

The MAC already has six bowl-eligible teams and likely will add a seventh in former Kelly coaching stop Central Michigan. There are three contracted MAC slots, four if you count the Poinsettia and five if Northern Illinois transcends into the BCS lineup.

There are some rumors that ND may be looking at the Hawaii Bowl instead.

Nothing but talk so far. I doubt the validity of this, but the rumor exists.

Its bad enough we will get stuck in that Birmingham dump most every year we are eligible due to having no western bowls, but Im really hoping we don't have to go there this year. If things work out I think Houston could end up in the Liberty.

they had a great experience a few years ago there didn't they?

Of course, that would require an open spot, and that's not likely to happen. CUSA #2(filled) vs MWC #5.

For MWC #5 to go unfilled-
1- Fresno must go to BCS
2- San Jose St must lose to Fresno 10-0
3- Wyoming must lose to Utah St 7-4
4- Colorado St must lose to Air Force 2-9

If any of those 4 things don't happen- MWC will fill the Hawaii spot. Suppose there could be some horse trading.

We would be paying a large chunk of money to arrange it.

I think it'd require all MWC teams getting slots. Also- may hinge on who wins this weekend and just how many bowl slots are filled- just how many open slots are there. It's possible, but I don't know if it's probable. I think the Poinsettia Bowl is a more likely destination.
