Doesn’t matter where it is, I need to drive it. Plane tickets, game tickets, food and hotel aren’t in the budget for the whole family.

Four weeks away. Not sure a passport application or renewal can turn around that fast.

You can pay extra to have it expedited. About 2 weeks with that.

I also heard a couple weeks back that Clark had the athletic department pay to get all the players passports when it was looking like we were going to be bowl eligible.

I agree with above poster... If we politicked for Bahamas, it would be in total disregard for the average fan that marched and dipped into their savings to bring the program back. This first bowl should be celebrated by all. Go to Bahamas next year.

Nah. The bowl is a reward for the players. The game will be a great recruiting tool as well.

2 years with no games played? I am all for an all expense paid trip to the Bahamas for the players. They deserve it for all of the S*** this administration put them through and the haters that wrote them off long ago. Well done men, if Bahamas is where you go, then Bahamas is where we will watch you! Whether it be in person or afar, you have made us all so very proud!

Only way I get pissed at Clark after this beautiful 8-4 season is if he goes on the trip to the Bahamas and THEN goes to another school. In some cultures that would be considered a d*ck move.

+1
while we should focus on how ecstatic we are to be having this conversation, some of us are focused on which locations would leave us pissed off...
thats ridiculous

No one in this thread has stated they’d be pissed if a certain bowl is chosen. No one. I as well as others only stated that they hope it’s not Bahamas for stated reason. The level of angst isn’t even measurable in this thread.
