So….basically what this is, is us just settling again to play second fiddle to the Pac12 vs B1G, and SEC vs Big 12 bowls. Does anything really think we hold a candle to them? Give Swofford credit for holding the boat steady while we step in….but once we shove off from shore…..eh.
The orange bowl now is better then the REAL orange bowl, at least location wise. Still not great. I’ve been to both and not overly impressed with either. I’d choose the Georgia Dome ANYDAY over any stadium in Miami. And Atlanta is just sooooooooooooooo much better as a trip. Much more family friendly, much easier drive/flight, just better.
Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, a 1pm game, HOW EXCITING. Makes more sense to put it Jan 1st at 8pm. Oh whats that? The SEC vs Big 12 have that slot? And before that the Rose? So basically what you are saying is we are relegated to the normal Raycom Sports timeslots that people MIGHT turn on for background noise as they get ready for their games later that night, but never really pay attention to. OH MAN I’M SO EXCITED…...Glad its on the 1st but beyond that, terrible. I agree with Matt Smith, its not the most attractive game anymore. The Chick-fil-a bowl has really made a name for itself over the years, honestly I find that more attractive.
But what can I say, I gotta spill the hate for SoPines.
