Sun Belt Working on another bowl bid?

I was cruising around the Troy board and I came across a link to this article, I'm guessing this is from a local Troy paper

"I talked again with Sun Belt commish Wright Waters. He mentioned Troy’s attendance yesterday as something that should have been better, and I agree. He said the conference is in talks for a second bowl bid and are hoping to work something out."

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

I really hope this is something that the Sun Belt can get done.  This league is improving and deserves more than a single bid.  Troy had too good of a season to be sitting at home during bowl season.  Not to mention, ULM, who beat Alabama and finished with the same record and is not going bowling.  Obviously the SBC has a ways to go in a number of areas, not the least of which fan support, but the quality of football being played is equal to or better than some leagues with multiple bids.

I think the Belt will get there & is a must really if it really want to continue to grow & get better as a conference.  It is a shame that TROY with a 8-4 record is sitting at home when teams with a 6-6 records go bowling - the system however is not build on fairness and one reason we will see a playoff system in place in the hopefully near future (2015???)
