03-hissyfit Home game for Boise St in the cold? Why not have a bowl game in DeKalb?

The entire team will be up in rebellion. It's not warm weather and it's against a team that means business. We've seen this movie before and it was a horror movie.

I'd be a little more excited about this if we didn't get wrecked in every bowl game we play in.

Bowls are only important if you are the last MAC team in it seems, those are the best matchups

One of the worst bowl games ever. We don’t need a replay of that. Please no.

I think NIU is in a slightly better place than that year, Boise would win, but it would be competitive.

According to the "Football Scoop" web site, Rod Carey picked up a $25K bonus for becoming bowl eligible.

Did they consult their magic 8-ball? Pretty much every possible bowl game is listed in there, against 9 possible opponents. It's like flipping a coin and predicting that it will either fall heads or tails.

RE: We are Bowl Eligible
I would think most of them are just throwing darts, but if anyone has any inside information it'd be the ESPN guys (since ESPN owns most bowls) and Brett McMurphy who seems to know everybody in college football.

Bottom line is the MAC has 5 tie-ins (Camellia, Frisco, Bahamas, Potato, Dollar General) plus a secondary with Quick Lane and just the ESPN-owned bowls generally.

Date, Time (ET) Game, Network
Sat, Dec. 15, 5:30 pm ET Raycom Media Camellia Bowl (ESPN) - MAC vs. Sun Belt
Wed., Dec. 19, 8:00 pm ET Frisco Bowl (ESPN) - MAC vs. American Athletic Conference
Fri., Dec. 21, 12:30 pm ET Bahamas Bowl (ESPN) - MAC vs. Conference USA
Fri., Dec. 21, 4:00 pm ET Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (ESPN) - MAC vs. Mountain West

Did not know what the "Makers Wanted" was. Looked it up, apparently, Elk Grove Village has enough cash on hand to sponsor their own bowl (or bowl sponsorships are so cheap you can get one, even if you are a government entity). Nothing says get your name out to America with a mid-major bowl tie in at an offshore tax haven.
