It really is great for the Sun Belt that Troy got that bowl bid. We definitely have to try to continue to have more than one team bowl eligible.

This year the Sun Belt got lucky. We actually owe it to the Clemson, South Carolina fight as they both elected to not let their teams go bowling as a punishment. That opened up just enough spots.

Thanks Clemson and South Carolina.. ;D

Oh by the way..there was never a near riot at the end of the FAU/FIU game as reported in the local paper. >:(
Two kids squawking and the rest just pulled them away.

Sensational journalism at it's worst.

Are you referring to the Sun Belt Conference's first bowl victories? Reason why I ask is because in 2002 North Texas defeated Conference USA's co-champion Cincinnati 24-19.

it sucks our midseason went crap. We would have been all over the place being undefeated and not going to a bowl game have beaten 3 bowl teams. lee corso would've been all over it……
Good luck to troy and North Texas……and Hawaii. It will make us look even better if they win.

Ooops, the research staff is now fired!!
:-[
I must have meant the first year of multiple bowl victories for the Sun Belt.

Anyway, the better the Sun Belt does in these bowl games, the more likely the NCAA will listen to it about the attendance issue.

Go N. Texas, Go Troy!!

And since neither FAU nor FIU reached the 15,000 threshold as transitional 1-A teams ya'll will still be considered transitional next season as well until you do make the mandate or so that is what Wright Waters has said. If that's the case, neither school may be eligible to play in a bowl game next season either because of your non-full-fledged 1-A status.

Now, if the 15,000 attendance rule gets thrown out by the NCAA before next year, then you don't have to worry.

Thats what were hopeing for.... There is no way that a team 4 years into exhistance is going to hit that mark.. They should make exceptions for starting teams and make it like exhisting 1A programs, give them 10 years to hit it.

Even if they don't throw out the attendance the rule the NCAA may give FIU and FAU a waiver because both our schools had big games affected by hurricanes.
