Thread: Realistic Bowl Selection

    I'd be happy with anywhere except Arizona. Logistically, just can't make that one work.
    Cure would be fun because it would be new. But honestly, I thought Montgomery was lots of fun last year and wouldn't be disappointed to go back if that's where we end up. The city was excited about the game and the game day activities were all a lot of fun. Overall, it was a great experience.
    We had plain white pants, we had plain navy-blue shirts, a number on the front and a number on the back. We couldn't even put a stripe down the middle of our helmets. We used a strip of tape. ... Those kind of things screamed, 'TEAM!' - Erk Russell

    Yeah, in 2016... the 2019 bowl selection committee is saying (according to Big Frank) they don’t want that.

    You got to remember, perception plays into this a lot as well.

    WMU beat 2 P5s the year they made it too, but they only really made it cause they were undefeated. One loss would have dropped them out of it.
    Correct me if I’m wrong, but we have more ranked wins than App as well.

    That would be accurate.

    I want to play the team that gives us the highest chance to win. Nobody cares that EMU finished 7-6 and tied for 5th in the MAC... they just remember that we won our bowl, got 10 wins, and had positive momentum over the offseason.

    Does Lunsford's first season mean as much as if we had lost that game to 10-4 MAC runner-up Buffalo instead? Nope.

    Get a win, hang a banner, and move on to 2020.

    Yes. And we all know 8-5 is going to look infinitely better than 7-6.

    Agree 100 percent. Play whoever get a win and a trophy and take momentum into the offseason

    I want a win, too, but I also want a respectful win. When people hear we beat EMU they assume that they were 7-6 and 5th in the MAC (or the like). If we want respect than we need to go out and take it, and that’s hard to do with walk-off FG wins against 5th place MAC teams. If we lose to a good AAC program and end the season at 7-6, so be it, the reality is we were a 7-6 team this year. But, I’ll also take the easy win if that is our given path.

    Bowl opponents don't matter. Let's take a quiz.

    1) Name at least 2 of the 4 teams that App has beaten in their bowl games.

    2) The AAC went 2-5 in 2018 bowls with one of those wins over an ACC team. What AAC team picked up that P5 win?

    3) UAB was the feel-good story of the year in 2018 and went 11-3 with a bowl win. What conference was their opponent from?

    I'll be shocked if anyone can answer these. It's not that App's bowl wins don't matter (they do) or that the AAC win over the ACC team (hint: Wake Forest) was meaningless, or that UAB's bowl win meant more because their opponent was in their conference's title game (it doesn't). It's just the simple fact that these are exhibition games against average+ opponents. Just get a win.

    And before the FCS die-hards jump in, I bet you can't name our 2000 Quarterfinal opponent either. All you remember is that we won.
