    I’m excited we got the Orange Bowl for recruiting purposes alone. Who cares who we play it’s a meaningless game anyway just as the sugar bowl would have been. We now get the exposure in a recruiting hotbed with both scUM and f$u under our foot. The week of practice down there I say get every stud they can to come out and watch, hang with the players etc. Trust me Mullen wanted the Orange Bowl over the sugar just for this reason. Will we get any scoop on recruiting in south Florida the week we go down? I would think and hope Wingo will go check it out and bring / recruit others with him for that good guys.

    I agree with everything except the meaningless part. It’s a chance for CDM to better the annual record and all south Florida recruiting eyes will be on that game. Need a good showing and rotate in the young players to show onlookers what they could be doing in 12 months.

    That may be the best case I’ve heard made for expanding the playoffs. If the games are/become meaningless, the payouts will wither away. Money would expand it for sure.

    Winning this game matters, it's not meaningless. And it's a great way to showcase our team, the bigger we win the better it is.

    They put on the uniform, keep score, and it goes on the final record. I disagree that bowl games are meaningless.

    It's why I really wanted the orange bowl and not the cotton, we need to own the state.
