SMU is back!! Look for them to pay players the regular going rate starting next year. Dallas might have a small chance at actually having a good team in the near future haha.

Only one of them, the QB, was playing though.
I liked Nevada as the season was starting (I thought they'd beat ND), but it became apparent that without A LOT of help from his running game, Kaepernick is an awful QB, plus Nevada's pass defense was like 118th in the nation. Against a June Jones Run-And-Shoot...I liked my chances.

I won a ton of cash on that game. Thank you Ponies.

I talked to the chairman of the sugar bowl last night at a christmas party.


He said if he could go back he'd pick LSU over UF right now.

UF hasn't sold even close to their allotment and most of the tickets sold are discounted student tickets. They are all butthurt over not going to the NC so they aren't travelling well at all. He said he'd catch a lot of flack, but LSU as of now would have been a better choice than UF.

He said if a similar situation ever comes up again he now has a precedence so he will always pick LSU over UF. He couldn't do it this year because there was no evidence that UF wouldn't travel well. Now that there is facts backing that up LSU will probably always get the nod over UF if we qualify for the Sugar Bowl.

He said if we had beat Ole Miss we'd have been a lock for the sugar.


Merry christmas guys

I got an LSU snuggie. Success!!

It's basically the Consolation Bowl. Kinda sad given its history.

They aren't even close to selling their tickets. And the people who have bought tickets and are trying to flip them usually get laughed at when asking face value.

It has been the last few years because the loser has always had a better record than the #3 SEC team.

If UF had two losses or maybe even 1 loss and then lost the SEC champ game LSU would be a lock and it's no longer consolation because LSU wasn't really expecting a BCS bid anyway.

For example with ark lost to UF in 06 they went to some other bowl (i dont remember) and LSU went to the Sugar bowl because both LSU and Ark had two losses so for someone who didn't make it to the SEC champ game, making it to the sugar bowl is huge and would draw a very large fanbase.

Doesn't work so well when a fanbase is expecting an NC and then they end up getting knocked out with one game remaining.

I'm not saying it's fair that the loser gets snubbed, but I guarantee the loser would likely travel not nearly as well as the number 3 team.






All of this, of course, if the winner goes to the NC.

Alabama probably travels better than any fanbase in the SEC and bought up all the tickets for it, but it still doesn't change the fact that it's the Consolation Bowl. You're a game away from the NC and you just fall short and your reward is a game against a new money program who wants to win ten times more.

While it may not be the fairest thing in the world, it makes the most sense financially to pick the number 3 SEC team (if they qualify) over the loser.

The loser rarely travels well

The number 3 team will have a much more enthusiastic fanbase ready to cheer on their team that wasn't expecting BCS. Whereas the loser expected nothing less than National Championship.
