    AAC has 7 bowl eligible teams and 8 bowl tie ins. Cure Bowl picks 7th out of 8. Cincinnati or Memphis would have to get the NY6 bid for Liberty to get the Cure slot. Not a long shot as both are ranked just ahead of Boise. However, Boise could jump both depending on how the game plays out and if Cincy wins. You'd have to think Boise gets the nod over 2 loss Cincy and Memphis.

    8th pick is the Quick Lane Bowl vs Big 10. That slot is guaranteed to be a wild card.

    But that’s irrelevant. We won’t lose.
    I agree. It's hard to gauge any of their stats given their schedule. They had 3 FBS wins, and 2 of those were against the same team.

    Western Michigan vs Georgia Southern.... Camellia Bowl.

    If you're going by ESPN's estimate maybe. There's 7 or 8 predictions out there right now, and not 1 of them is the same. Arizona Bowl is the most cited prediction, but then the opponent they're predicting are all different. I'll just wait until official announcement.

    And Georgia State's head coach has already spilled the beans on that one.

    From our very good friend Ben Moore:

    If the Cure Bowl takes anyone other than Arkansas State I'll be shocked. I've heard from GSU people that it will most likely be an Alabama bowl but nothing is finalized until this weekend. These bowls are basically set up this week because travel plans will need to be firmed for the teams.
    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.”

    So, we're going to the Cure Bowl is what Ben is saying? Three things you can count on: Death, Taxes and Ben Moore being wrong.

    -People on your Twitter feed? You don't have "people" Ben.

    -Well yeah, they're going to Mobile unless they beat App. This is known.

    -McMurphy knows as much as the next talking head making predictions. Arizona isn't in the picture for Southern.

    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.
    -Is it? Call me crazy, but I thought bowls wanted teams based on fan support and records? Guess not.

    If the Red Wolves don't head to Orlando they may head to Tuscon.
    -I thought "guys who would know" said we were going to Tucson? Why would stAte even be in the mix then?

    5 FBS wins?

    Several? You mean the 3 bowls left after the 2 division winner are sorted out? And, no, beating a 5-7 Army team is not the big deal he thinks it is.

    And for the record, his "sources" is the SID at Georgia State. He is a poseur plain and simple.
