I believe Espn gets to make the call on who we play. I’d be happy with Mobile. Most predictions had us in Idaho before tonight so this should be a pleasant surprise unless Espn chooses to send us there anyway.

I was wrong. I thought Mobile had the first pick but it’s ESPN, which owns so many bowls and still might take Buffalo over us. So who knows.

https://buffalonews.com/2018/11/30/ub-mac-championship/

The Bulls became bowl eligible Oct. 13 with a win against Akron, and the MAC has guaranteed spots in five bowl games. ESPN owns the Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise, Idaho; the Camellia Bowl in Montgomery, Ala.; the Bahamas Bowl; and the Frisco Bowl in Frisco, Texas. ESPN by contract has the first choice of MAC teams for the bowl season, but there is no stipulation that ESPN has to take the champion.

The Dollar General Bowl gets the second choice, then ESPN fills in the next spots. Toledo was announced earlier this week for the Bahamas Bowl.

Let’s not over react. Our coaches were forced to make changes because we were down three scores. If we were only two scores down no adjustments would have been made. My advice to our coaches: When something is not working, fix it whether you’re in a close game or a blowout. I’m happy with the win but still frustrated with the coaching staff. It’s obvious they have the creativity and the foresight but they rarely show it. They did a great job busting Jones and Childers in the perimeter a game after Harbs busted loose in the middle for 170 yards but they didn’t show anything until the MACC. It’s like they’re scared sometimes that something is going to backfire. Make the adjustment whether you’re down by 3 or 17 if something isn’t working!!!!

I have to admit that I went to bed last night with the score at 29-10 and wondering why NIU never seems to come back in big games like this. Boy was I wrong! Congratulations to the team!
