Memphis is playing so well right now, I don't think they are going to the Bham bowl. I see them winning out and going to the Peach Bowl.

RE: Opinions Vary on Potential UAB vs. Memphis Rivalry Bowl Game in Birmingham
Suggesting UAB makes a Bowl and the Schedule has them making a bowl game with no more wins with what they have. What would be the reward. Poll the Players, Coaches and Fans. Where would they like to go and where would the fans travel too. If you want to get a hotel and show the city, theirs plenty to do. I would think the players would like to play in another place and would think the coaches and their wives would like to get a reward for the non show of their work, I would think that their are many fans that would like to take a trip of the reward to somewhere else, I, Think we would get more fans in Birmingham then anywhere else. so where is the answer.

Leaning towards that being the case as well

I wouldn't make or take any projection serious at this point. I would only think it's fun because we hadn't really had the chance to do it. I'll be happy with any bowl game that wants us. More concerned with injuries at the moment.

That said I'm back looking at recruiting, think I see some possible blueshirts on the horizon potentially.

Bowl projections are some of the easiest to predict so I don't totally agree.

Blueshirting is a way for programs to get around the 25 yearly scholarship limit. Basically you can put an incoming freshman on scholarship when they officially enroll for the fall but count them against next years recruiting class as long as he wasn't technically a recruit, meaning he didnt take an official visit and was not offered a letter of intent from your school, and didnt sign one with anyone else. I believe the player has to redshirt his freshman year as well.

If Memphis plays like they did against UConn, I would say your right. Do they have a new stadium yet.

So, It counts against next years totals, well that's good, if you can't get a player for next year right.
