    CBS is predicting us to play ND in the Belk Bowl...

    I guess that would be kind of cool, but we'd lose.

    The Liberty Bowl really wants UT. Tough to care though.

    If they wind up in Birmingham, I guess I'll drive over. I doubt I drive all the way to Memphis.

    Sorry, but no team that's 6-6 deserves to be in a bowl. They have watered it down and cheapened bowls so much, its like giving out participation trophies at the end of the season

    What about 6-5 in an 11 game season? Or 7-5?

    I agree with you, but I do think it matters one what a "bowl" means. In the distant past, it meant more than it does now.

    An extra month of practice for the young guys sounds good. Also, not sure when the AJ stuff will clear up, but hopefully if he misses next week, the bowl game will give him one last opportunity to suit up.

    As mentioned... The Liberty Bowl folks really want Tennessee... It's on a Monday at 1pm though...

    They really want that TN vs Texas/WVU/Kansas St matchup

    That is what the bowls have become, participation trophies. In 1980 there were 15 bowls. Today, there are 39 bowls named after after chain stores with half-empty lower level seats.

    In the end, when it comes to a bowl game and this Tennessee team, who gives a shit?

    It sounds good until you realize who will be coaching the boys during that extra month of practice.

    I'll enjoy it.

    Same guy who will probably be coaching them for the next 2-3 years. It is what it is.

    The extra practice would be a benefit, but not much else. A meaningless matchup of bad teams which we likely lose.

    I would like to play Texas so I could talk shit to my friend but their defense would destroy butch and company.

    Texas has more defensive talent than Louisville could ever dream of.
