So so far, we’ve seen Boca, Tampa and Hawaii

At this point just win out Owls, 6-6 does not appear to be a guarantee anymore with such parity (actually mediocrity!) in the Power 5 this year. Win out and get to 7-5 Owls!

For bowl purposes, I believe there is no difference between 6-6 and 7-5. Heck, there would be no difference between 10-3 and 6-6 (except for the possible conference crown, which guarantees a bowl appearance).

At this point we have to hope our watchability and story lines will help us. Of the bunch, we are one of, if not the most, compelling.

Underdog Dynasty with another prediction of Hawaii:

I would think taking the team to Hawaii would cost a fortune so the Admin would not want that. South Florida probably would have no interest, but that would be a fun opponent in the Boca Bowl. Need to win the last couple games though. No easy task.

According to a couple of sites I found, the payout for the Hawaii bowl DECREASED for this season and is now the SAME as the payout for the Boca Bowl.  The Gasparilla Bowl (Tampa) is only a little bit more, and the Bahamas Bowl is by far the lowest payout.

So strictly from a business perspective, it appears it would be good to get bowl-eligible for the extra practices and either stay home or go to Tampa.  Better for fans in seats and better for the athletic coffers.

Even at 7-5 we'll have to settle for whatever comes our way…at 6-6 we may need help to even get a secondary.

Bottom line:

We should be glad just to go Bowling at this point. That MTSU loss is REALLY painful.

Correct.  Everybody is back talking like these next 2 games are auto wins.  They’re far from it.

We need to go to a bowl for a lot of reasons this year.  Winning 5 with this team is pathetic.  No other word defines it better.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

If we win out, I'd like to go to Tampa (Gasparilla Bowl) or New Orleans (R+L bowl)
