    As you know, all of us have been going to through this year's bowl selections and I find it truly inspiring and yes, humorous that both the Nolies and the Co-Caines are both going to impressive (cough, cough) bowls this year!

    F.S.U. is going to the, get this... the, "Tony The Tiger Sun Bowl" against the Sun Devils on December 31st.
    While Miami is going against Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl (Weedwacker Bowl) in the lovely city of Shreveport, Louisiana on December 26th.
    Folks... my relatives are mostly all from the Ruston, Louisiana area. I have been to that stadium in Shreveport. You don't wanna go there!
    It's in a bad part of town (and Shreveport is not all that great to start with!) But the stadium looks like an upgraded high school venue. Railroad tracks are right next to it. And yes, they hold a lot of rodeos in that stadium.
    Here is a quote:
    "It will indeed be Shreveport, Louisiana and the Independence Bowl for the Miami Hurricanes this college football bowl season.
    UM will play against Louisiana Tech in a 4 p.m. kickoff on Dec. 26 in Shreveport’s Independence Stadium, it was announced on Sunday.
    Miami’s Independence Bowl selection, which fell in line with various projections, is a disappointment after the Hurricanes fell deep into the allotment of Atlantic Coast Conference-affiliated bowl games by ending the regular season with losses to FIU and Duke to finish 6-6."


    You gotta love it!
    Have FSU and Miami ever been this low before in the entire history of those two schools? Time to cherry-pick some good recruits from South Florida!

    I miss the days when there were five or six bowls, and teams went bowling who deserved it.

    How in the world does any 6-6 team deserve a reward?

    Totally agree. 6 wins used to be a little easier to understand back when there were only 11 regular season games. 6-5 is pretty much the definition of mediocre, but at least you win more than you lose. 6-6 is not deserving of a post-season game.

    That's hilarious . So, Miami is going to the Bonnie and Clyde Massacre Bowl, where they tour the ambush site and get to count the bullet holes in the death car. The Noles get free breakfast at the Days Inn , where at least three of them will get busted for trying to roll the vending machine. Remember when FSU went to that bowl game in Cali ( I think San Fran) where they had hypodermic needles in the end zone and the granite back wall was about 6 inches from the back of the end zone? Players were getting AIDS and/or concussions from scoring TD's? This is step up for the Noles.

    Both schools lived on the low end of college football until the 1980's. Miami got pretty strong and then FSU followed after Florida got put on probation. Both are now going back down where they belong as Florida is gaining strength and getting back to where they belong.

    So will the FSU players get famiy-sized boxes of Frosted Flakes, or will they have to settle for the little individual boxes, instead?

    I sort of expected fsu to get the Poulan Weed Eater Bowl.

    Btw, Arizona St. is good enough to beat them too.
