I was just funnin' around. I get why sources do not need to be outed. Nevertheless, the timing to use one of my favorite movie lines was just too tempting. Love that we are going to a bowl!!!

How about Nevada in Dallas?
Nevada doesn't "move the needle" like a SEC opponent would.

I haven't had the pleasure of actually going into Mobile, but I spent a week in Gulf Shores and loved it. So I like the idea of going to Mobile. My Boss is a school teacher, so travel planning may make this one difficult from the Burg. I do believe it's easier to fly in and out of Pensacola than Mobile.

I'm not high on playing a MAC school, but one definitely gives us a higher probability/possibility of a win. Nick Pierce and Pat Kelly also said on their podcast, that the Sun Belt has a shortage of eligible teams (4?), and the MAC has a plethora (8?). So this makes some sense with our secondary tie-ins and our 7-5 record.

Mobile is great. Yea to Pensacola. Just too far and bad timing for me.

Myrtle Beach is only Hope I have out of our likely possibilities. And even that is a stretch.

I hear Frisco is out because so many Texas teams qualified.

I took my brother to the 2001 GMAC Bowl in Mobile to watch Marshall beat ECU in double overtime, but that was played in an old stadium that was built in 1948.

This year's Lending Tree Bowl is played at the stadium at South Alabama University that's about the size of LU's stadium and only a year old.

If we play a MAC team in any bowl, there's a 99% chance i will not go. I can't get excited about a team from Ohio or Directional Michigan team.

Ballcoach, I thought you would be THRILLED to go to a bowl game in your beloved Alabama.

You really should consider two things in your decision making:
1. You should go to cheer for LU (not to watch the other team play).
2. You should want LU to play in a bowl game that they can WIN (playing an SEC teams makes that almost impossible).

That is operating under the assumption that he lives in the same world the rest of us do.
He lives in ballcoach world.
It's one dimension over from Bizarro world.
