We should root for Troy even though they are pissed that we are playing in a Bowl with a HIGHER PAYOUT amount LMAO… perhaps we will actually make money from this Bowl game????

Yeah, that's interesting. Seems it doesn't pay to win the conference anymore. $750k > $325k.

But winning the confrence is the ONLY GURANTEE that youll go bowling.

Payouts great, but we got damn lucky that they bought our story and got the chance.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Well thats only our conference if you're in C-USA and you had a record of 8-4 like Troy did last season I'm sure you're gonna go bowling just don't know where or what payout compared to the championship for C-USA

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Family connection or not I really dont care if they win or lose. Check out their board. They aren't happy we're going bowling! Especially after we went last year and they sat at home being 8-4. Oh well! We have Howard!

GO OWLS!!!!!!!!

They aren't happy because we made a more visible bowl and we are getting a bigger payout. I still say root for any in conference rival in non-conference and bowl games. Makes the conference as a whole look good.

GO OWLS!!!

I hope that Troy can crush Southern Miss, like shutout crush. Then maybe maybe they get ranked or at least get some votes. Also root for Minny, Michigan, and Texas. It will make our season seem that much better if 4 of our losses were to really good, top 25 teams….1 to luck, and one just bad game.

Now lets go beat those Chip Chip Chippewas!

GO OWLS!

Troy is going to annihilate Southern Miss, I don't think it will even be close. Troy is just to good. I don't think they'll be ranked if they win but they should get some votes for top 25 if they blow them out

I'm not so sure about that. True, it's the only guarantee. But if I'm right, and it was purely a money decision based on who would bring the higher TV ratings, then that's a double standard working to our advantage here. They went four-deep in the SBC to pick us, passing over #2 and #3? FAU, FIU, North Texas and MTSU seem to have a leg up on everyone else. Other than us four, the SBC is full of small-market teams with small alumni bases.

I'm going to root for Troy. If they win, it's another example of the SBC over CUSA.
