    Yeah, I gotcha, I was just validating the response since you added the “?.”

    I selfishly want us to go to Arizona since I have family there and live in Texas now. But I think the Cure would be the best suited one for us for attendance and matchup

    The Cure Bowl representative was at Turner Field on the 22nd when they played South Alabama to the tune of 200 people. They were in Statesboro a week later to watch us play State. Which do you think they were more impressed by? The atmosphere and attendance we brought, or the morgue that is Turner Field?
    Yeah, I get that we would provide a much more impressive atmosphere, I am just saying that there is a small chance that the committee’s priority might be selling more tickets over actual seats filled. I’m not saying they will, just that it is possible.

    Luckily we’d be able to do both.

    Elliott has been very vocal about how critical the next two weekends being important for official visits. GSU only has a few spots left in the class so the next 15 days are important to lock the class in.
    To clarify - Elliott was telling the hosts that if GSU gets the invite to Arizona then he wanted them to join them out there. Hugh came to the App State-GSU game and was on the field pregame.

    Louisiana has struggled mightily with home fan support. Don't be shocked if they get sent to an Alabama bowl and don't travel very well there.
    Guys who would know (like Brett McMurphy) have said for weeks that GS is most likely headed to Tuscon. Something to watch.
    Like it or not - GSU beating Tennessee and even Army is a major deal to some of these bowl selection committees and why I believe the Panthers are a very attractive choice to several of these bowls.
    If the Red Wolves don't head to Orlando they may head to Tuscon.”
    McMurphy's latest bowl projections have GS vs Liberty in the Cure Bowl. Just came out tonight.

    I didn't see that, but next year it will be GSU 4 - State 3 so he will really have to catch up.

    From our very good friend Ben Moore:

    Not sure you can say that as we have sold our allotment in both bowl appearances. It's why you're seeing us mentioned by some to the Cure Bowl which we showed well vs. Western Kentucky two seasons ago.Also, we aren't last in Sun Belt attendance like another G5 school in this state. That matters as most bowl committees can base an average around 15% of announced attendance will travel to a bowl game.”

    If memory serves me correctly, I think Coach Miles bought at least a hundred student tickets for the bowl game in 15. Not sure if they were actually used or not..
