I concur. It'd be too good a story.

Maybe even for those nimrods in Mobile.

Bowls don't care about feel good stories. They will invite whoever brings the most fans.


Bowls don’t care about attendance anymore. Most are completely controlled by ESPN, and it is all about ratings and advertising. They will invite the teams they are told to invite. Most of the contracts even give ESPN final say over the teams in the bowl game.

Major bowls, yes. But there are so many bowls that 5-7 teams are given slots now.

We have been talked about on College Gameday 4 weeks out of the season so far. If we're eligible, I think we are a lock to get one.

If it’s ratings, the story line gives us the edge. If it’s attendance, we still have the edge.

Yeah. I think we’d travel very well. I know I’d go to pretty much anywhere other that Hawaii, and I’d give even there a long look.

We have not shown that we can win on the road yet, and those are both better opponents than we have played on the road so far.

Yeah if we're in a bowl game other than Hawaii or the Bahamas, I'll be there.

Yeah, we’re thinking Bowl. Clark & team probably thinking bigger. He said not a game left on schedule that we couldn’t win or lose.

RE: We are now halfway to bowl eligibility
I said we would be bowl eligible and not backing down from it jinx or not. We can win or lose every game left on the schedule so no matter what we say here it will play out how it plays out

Stay relatively healthy. That's the key. Yea we make a lot of mistakes but we are slowly improving here and there.

No way we are left out Bowl eligible. I would not be surprised WHEN eligible we get invited to a non CUSA bowl because someone wants us and cuts a deal.

How about UAB vs Vandy or SC in Birmingham or UAB vs Troy in Montgomery? If I'm Montgomery I'm begging for that matchup. Love to play SC here. Wow. That would be fun. My bet is New Orleans though vs ULM Just a hunch.
