When you’re the third place finisher in a conference that will cease to exist, being choosy about which bowl game you want to play in probably isn’t the brightest strategy in the world.

Especially when your coach is being talked about for other jobs. This is one of those decisions that could send a team on the rise right back to the cellar.
That’s some quality hate: giving up a bowl to spite the other team. Quality.
I thought prescisely the same; the mighty UnderDogs did not want any part of NE Louisiana and cut their own throats in the process. Brilliant!!
Yeah… when they’re accepting waivers for 6-7 teams, you better take what you can get.
The “mother of all back-ins” continues.
Senator, maybe you’re getting around to this, but last night’s ESPN Bowl Special devoted virtually all of its brief coverage of the Cap One matchup to predictions that Nebraska would be in a great position to upset Georgia. Is this the WWL’s tribute to its ABC partner in an effort to boost ratings for a game between the team that scored four TDs against Alabama versus the one that gave up 70 points to Wisconsin?
Ed, I have to confess that I try to avoid most of ESPN’s specials, mainly because they’re not very special. Given how lopsided some of those bowl matchups look, I’ve no doubt the WWL will be flogging the upset possibilities early and often.
Sure glad I missed all that Pome d’Rue as well.
