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.
    I want a win, period. I don't care who it is with because in two years, no one other than our own fans will remember who we played anyway.

    Liberty fans seem pretty confident that they will go to the Cure Bowl. Liberty has a secondary agreement with the Cure Bowl should they be eligible and the Sun Belt or AAC can’t fill a slot. The AAC has 7 eligible teams for 7 slots so the only way I can see Liberty getting in is if an AAC teams gets the access bowl.

    Which they likely will. If Memphis beats Cincy it isn't a question, and if Cincy wins there's a chance at 11-2 they get in over a 12-1 App.

    EDIT: Cure Bowl Twitter pretty much retweets every score of every AAC, SBC, and Liberty game. But they also posted one 2 days ago of an interview with Liberty's radio announcer and the executive director of the Cure Bowl.

    Cincy won’t get in over a one loss Boise State though

    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

    When provided those matchups you have to make the best of them. Our bowl tie-ins are not where you're gonna get those matchups. Get your sacrificial lamb, win your game, put the trophy in the case.

    Next year we can go undefeated over an Ole Miss team with a first year HC, beating Boise along the way, and have a good resume when it comes time for Access Bowl consideration. THEN we get the marquee matchup in the bowl.
    Also yes

    P.S.: Have a nice day!

    Access Bowl will be -

    Memphis, if Memphis wins
    Boise, is Boise wins, and Memphis loses to Cincy
    Cincy, if Cincy wins and Boise loses


    I dont think App will get in even if they win this weekend, unless they stomp ULL and Boise and Memphis both lose. Too much AAC bias.

    I wonder if there'll be a sense of apathy for App's players if they don't go NY6?

    23-3 over the last two seasons, and the prize is all the same. A trip to New Orleans to play a CUSA team.

    Not saying that's the case, just thinking out loud.

    If they want more they could try beating Georgia Southern and then scheduling P5 games with teams that can at least get bowl eligible

    IMO, That's the reality for MOST teams. Anything other than the CFP means the same couple bowls for every team. Granted, they are MUCH nicer bowls in P5, but you get what I mean. I think the expectation of a G5 team is already lowered anyway, so they should be fine. They can give us a conference championship and a trip to NOLA every year if they don't want it.
