Probably the right size for the venue, and playing in a soccer stadium has got to be a better fan experience than playing in a baseball stadium.

Disappointing in some ways as Miami is a great destination.

Aresco's dreams of a tweener AAC football conference that is comparable to a P5 have been dashed.

And the idea the AAC was equivalent to the Big East has been dashed when they had to add Wichita State to prop up the basketball conference.

So far not so good.

The attendance will be better, I'll admit to that. It's just not a very glamorous location. It's not a bad town...I don't know, had to explain but I'm disappointed.

Couldn't disagree more.

What this suggests to me is ESPN and Aresco are working together. The Wichita State addition was timely with the Top 10 team they have coming in next year. With two 30-win teams, there was no urgency to prop up anything. Most of the other programs had short benches, and were really just needing time. There was no way they were going to add prior to this year with the Big 12 decision looming. ESPN blessed the addition.
It seems like Aresco and ESPN are moving in concert now, consolidating basketball strength and making moves with bowls. This is likely 1 of multiple moves.

I hope this is beginning of a big bowl upgrade.

Send the G5 champs who don't make the CFP to a new bowl series of games vs P5.

What moves though? Trade or sell this bowl for something better? If so, great. It seems to me that you've been hinting at more realignment to come. Curious to what you know....

You do realize that your team could be in the Frisco Bowl right? The Belch is opponent in 17 and 19, but the Maction is the opponent in 18. I'd be happy if it's a permanent Maction vs Belch game.

jeez, who cares? they're all irrelevant except the NY6 and a handful. Miami Beach Bowl was irrelevant too.

Who cares? I do. And the others who have taken time out of something else to type a response on the subject, including you yourself Sir.

You go to Louisiana Tech? They are about the only trolls who say Belch
