FN Bowl Watch Discussion
So what do you guys think it’s gonna be? Coach insinuated on the postgame with DC he knows where we are going with an official announcement to come hopefully in next few days. My guesses (in order of likelihood):

1) NO vs Troy
2) St Pete vs Smoo
3) Bham vs Mempiss
4) Shreveport vs P5
5) Armed Forces vs Army

I would hate NO because I feel like it’s the “cheapest” bowl out there but it’s an easy trip with a storyline opponent and we’ll before Christmas travel season. As long as it ain’t Bahamas I’ll be there.

Can you guys even believe we’re having this conversation right now?! What a season!

I know it is far and a lot of fans wouldn't be able to attend, but I am extremely hopeful for the Bahamas for the players. Would be an incredible experience with your teammates. Unless we are playing in one of bowls around New Years, I think they are all similar from a prestige standpoint.

Crane and Irvine heavily hinted at Bahamas in the post game.

If it’s Bahamas, I’m going to cry. It will be extremely cool for the players, but it will mean that some of us will be 0-2 in getting to bowl games because we will have never played one in the contiguous 48 states.

With the story of the fans rising up to get this thing back, I’m not going to lie, that would hurt a little.

Bahamas is much more manageable than Hawaii. SWA flies to NAS now which has made flights much cheaper. It's really not too different than the South Florida bowls.

If there were other drive-able options, yes it would. How many students could afford to make that trip? Without them there wouldn't be a team. I'll pull for us to go 9-4 on TV but it won't be the same as a bowl road trip with my family.

If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong

I heard from an old friend who is in the know. He said UAB submitted New Orleans as our top choice to the conference. If that’s true we should get it. We will pick third behind FAU & North Texas.

I just heard Bahamas vs. Ohio. Pretty high level of confidence here.

This board should get nice and negative tomorrow.
