Idaho Potato Bowl talking With Sun Belt, Big East and Mountain West

Boise's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is talking with the Big East, the Mountain West and the Sun Belt about an affiliation for 2013 and beyond, executive director Kevin McDonald told the Idaho Statesman.

The bowl needs a new conference affiliation in 2013 because the WAC will not sponsor football next year. The bowl has an affiliation with the Mid-American Conference for 2013

Considering our record in sub 50', not so sure it would be the best landing spot for us though.

I don't think the Belt will get it just because we don't have any schools near Idaho, but the fact that we're even being considered over the new C-USA is good. Likely a sign of things to come. With all of this conference realignment the Sun Belt will get more offers for bowl tie-ins. If that happens and CSS starts airing more of our games than C-USA has nothing on the sun Belt

As much as the SBC needs another Bowl Gurantee this one is NOT it.

It will be HORRIFICALLY attended by any SBC team because of its location.

I'd have to say no on this one.

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

I would guess it would be Horrifically attended by any of those conferences.  The sponsor probably just wants the TV audience because they know it's Idaho.

If they want to throw some money at the SBC, we sure could use it!

I dont' think the SBC is in a position to turn down anything… any bowl that gets another SBC team on TV is worth it at this point.

hell SBC should even take the AK-47 Afghanistan Bowl or the Northface Antarctica Bowl

Is this just a ploy to get a conference to add idaho?

Any Bowl game is beter than no bowl but it won't draw many from any of the BigEast or SunBelt - unless they get a tie in with an airline for some real nice ticket deals.

It could be, definitely. Idaho currently doesn't have a conference and they're independent and thoughts are they may eventually drop to the FCS level again and play in the Big Sky conference
