I think they deserve a big prime time stage on a Friday night, being the only game for the NATION to watch..Not only does it majorly keep our name in front of recruits, but its huge with practice- spring practice begins approximately 9 weeks later.

OK...lets try this:
SOME OF does not mean all..Some of the people in Bamberg, Orangeburg,Cope- don't want us to go to a bowl that they can't easily drive to..they didn't want us to go to Atlanta because they couldn't afford two trips within a month..
Brent Johnson stated it would be the only prime time game..I had no reason to doubt him...since my op I looked at an orange bowl site, and it said 8..I googled NCAA 2014 bowls, and it had TBA saying it was just updated 12/3/13

We're talking about bowl games? It's not going to make much difference prestige wise. We should just want the bowl that is going to pay us the most money, and I don't remember exactly how the revenue sharing works but it might not even be a financial difference for us. Texas is not our recruiting territory, Florida and Atlanta is. I think if any bowl is better for us it is probably the Chick-fil-A bowl. I don't think it matters really matters that much either way, might as well wish for a bowl the fans will travel well to.

This is kinda where I am at. Selfishly I hope it isn't the Citrus bowl because I won't be able to watch.

I am of the opinion that bowl games outside of the BCS (at least until the end of this Bowl season) are all pretty much the same. They will go into the record books as a win or loss. Now sure, some bowls pay out more than others, some bowl have better weather, some bowls give more swag to players, some bowls have better traditions and names. If you are not in one of the few "Big" bowls then there is no extra glitter on that year's team name in the followon sports almanacs. At this stage, we are getting to bowl games every year and we are starting to win the bowl games we go to so where ever we go, I hope we win and put another W in the books. I also hope that in the future there are SECCGs and National Titles so I am very needy that way.

Anyway good luck no matter where we end up. If it is Chick-Fil-A, cool. If it is Outback, cool. If it is the Music City Bowl, cool. If it is the AdvoCare bowl, cool. If it is the Liberty Bowl, cool. If it is the Gator Bowl, cool. If it is the Compass Bowl, cool.

Not sure why we're specifically calling out folks in the Low Country. Anyway, if you're not in the BCS, the game is for fun. Technically, if you're not in the BCS *Championship*' it's just for fun; you just get paid more. So my mentality is, if we're not in the BCS, let's go somewhere fun where we can play a good opponent. Both Cotton AND Capital One assure us of both; I just prefer Cap One because I love Orlando and warm weather. If we go to Cotton, I'll make the trip to Dallas as well.

Last year for the BCS championship and next year we want in one of the playoff bowls, rose or sugar. This year a bowl is a bowl but I would love to win the Cotton the first time we play in it, another first and it may open recruiting up in TX.

Default Re: Its not about you..

The fact of the matter is, the bowl game is intended for a number of different groups. First and foremost it's a fun time for players, coaches and their families, fans/alumni, and the faculty/administrators. The fact of the matter is, how many of how coaches and players want to travel to a stadium that will be 70% against them, b/c it's so far from SC and in Big 12 country? Versus, how many of them would like to travel to Orlando (warm, fun stuff for families) and it's so much easier and more affordable for Carolina fans to attend. So they get to play in a stadium that is more in their favor.

As far as a bowl goes, sure Dallas would be great, but would we travel? That is the question. It becomes about money.

And I never knew Orangeburg was Lowcountry, always thought it was Midlands.

Default Re: Its not about you..

We just need our trophy case to not look like shit. That helps recruiting too. Hard to pitch a program when you only have a few boomerangs, a stencil football, and a Liberty Bell to your name. Granted, he have a couple rivalry trophies and the Heisman from 30+ years ago but that doesn't compare to when these recruits see numerous Crystal Footballs, SEC accolades and Heisman's dedicated to players they can actually recognize. If these are what some are calling the Golden Years of our program then we need to start capitalizing on these opportunities and not shitting the bed in front of a national audience like we've been known to do. Last years game came down to Clowney's forcing a fumble and thankfully the offense scored, without "The Hit" we were going home empty handed.... again. Just saying, where ever it is we get picked to go let's hope we come away with something to show the direction the program is headed, in a positive way. If that's what this is really about
