    I have no idea but just think, the coaches and players could take the whole week of Christmas off if they wanted. You know, actually get to spend time with family and relax for the holidays. Heck probably even get to enjoy new years eve/day.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    Everyone gets the same number of practices (14 I think?).

    Also had a friend make a great point, the Lending Tree bowl gives us the most time for extra practice and rest.
    He said ďbowl,Ē the FCS is game is not a bowl game.

    I donít believe we get extra practices for a later bowl game, but (as BillyBob pointed out) that additional time would certainly help with getting the team healthy.

    After that the bowls do some wheeling a dealing with each other, but Arizona likely gets the last pick of the litter. As others and myself have said, there's just no way the Cure Bowl passes up Arkansas State. So for Southern and Georgia State it'll come down to Montgomery and Arizona.

    I personally think it's going to be Montgomery given they know we'll sell tickets, and that our fans would make a weekend trip out of it unlike folks from Atlanta only 2 hours away.

    Any of the possibilities are good except Arizona.
    Some have said they want something different (I think they were thinking Orlando), but honestly I'd be great if we end up back in Montgomery. We made a weekend of it last year and had a blast. The city was excited to have us there and it was a great atmosphere.
    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

    However, our fans need to stop tweeting at the Arizona bowl telling them they do not want to play in their bowl game and wouldn’t travel to Tucson if we were invited. That’s not a good look. If we end the season at 6-6 or 7-5, we should be entirely honored to accept an invite to the Arizona bowl or any bowl game.

    If somehow GSU went to Orlando what AAC team would GSU most likely play, What standings/rank would the AAC team be, within the AAC, that played in Orlando?
    GSU Spread Option FOOTBALL - out weighed, but never outplayed
    The T-Option is the powerful ground game ever devised & the FLEX is the best way to run it.
    If I want your opinion & don't like it I'll tell you what it should be.

    AAC Tie In

    American Athletic Bowl Ties, Affiliations

    Highest-ranked champion from the AAC, C-USA, MAC, MW & Sun Belt will play in a New Year’s Six bowl.
    The American Athletic Conference doesn’t have a true pecking order. The bowl matchups are based on best possible games and geography.
    – Armed Forces Bowl vs. Big 12
    – Birmingham Bowl vs. SEC
    – Cheribundi Tart Cherry Bowl vs. Conference USA
    – Cure Bowl vs. Sun Belt
    – Frisco Bowl vs. At-Large
    – Gasparillia Bowl vs. Conference USA
    – Military Bowl vs. ACC
    The American Athletic has secondary partnerships with the AutoZone Liberty and Walk-On’s Independence, to fill if the main affiliations can’t fill their slots.


    Sun Belt Bowl Ties, Affiliations


    The Sun Belt doesn’t have a true pecking order after the champion goes to the New Orleans Bowl. The bowl matchups are based on best possible games and geography. New member, Coastal Carolina, will not be eligible for a bowl game.
    1. R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl vs. Mountain West
    – Dollar General Bowl vs. MAC
    – Raycom Media Camellia Bowl vs. MAC
    – AutoNation Cure Bowl vs. American Athletic

    A bowl is a good thing, but IDK how the sunbelt got that bowl tie in.
    And that's fine if they can't attend.

    Don't badmouth bowl committees though.

    That's dumb.
