Desired Bowl Game Scenario

Post

I think FAUís positive over the years is showing up for bowl games! †Those are the only nationally televised games that we play good in. †I have seen even since last year when we were on the bubble that the Bahamas bowl was a likely destination for us. †Last week I saw this same destination as well as us being 70th best in the nation via USA Today.

If we went to say the Gasparilla bowl we possibly face UCF up north, †the New Orleans bowl will possibly have App. St., which can be a hard game. †If we played in the New Mexico bowl we possibly play A ranked SDSU for an example. †We are surging at the right time. †What bowl game scenario do you think will be beneficial for us or a matchup you would like to see?

Gasparilla against one of the aac teams (Memohis, smu, Cincinnati). That would be ideal for me.†

As for ideal for the team? Probably first responders against a lower tier big ten team.†

But Iíd personally much rather stay in state and play against a really good G5 team. Not saying we would beat them, but it would be a heck of a time!†

Gasparilla in Tampa against a solid AAC team would be a good wrap up to the year and I would definitely make the trip.

GO OWLS!

Iíd like to see first responders and get a shot at a big12 or big 10 team.†

I know we will never be selected but New Orleans bowl will always be my first choose just for selfish reasons because it would be the most fun trip to make†

ďBestĒ is always hard to gauge because it depends on the perspective. †Best for the program depends on if you look at payout or exposure (often those go hand-in-hand but sometimes they donít). †Best from a fan depends on if you value the team we play versus the location versus the convenience of attending.

My take is I would prefer to play on the biggest stage we can - that would mean the time slot, the opponent, and the network that carries the game. †This year the Boca Bowl could be a quality AAC team, be on ABC on Saturday, and be a game we can all attend. †The team probably wants to go somewhere else and would prefer First Responders or filling a P5 spot that canít be filled. †Iíll be happy with anything New Orleans or East so I can more conveniently take my daughter and just enjoy. †

I would be happy with anything besides the Bahamas Bowl or the Hawaii bowl. I would make the trip to Tampa with 10 family members if that was the case that would be a great trip/vacation. Nice to know we are going to go bowling!
