Default Cap one, cotton, or outback?

I remember the Capitol One bowl last year and how fans argued me down before the game on how great the quality of the stadium was but now this year people are calling it a dump. What's changed?

No one knows what he sincerely wants but I think it's funny some people actually want to go back to Orlando, and even funnier when they try and justify it as somehow better for South Carolina Football

The reasons why are priceless

I think you have to decide which bowl to go to based on prospective swag


2012
Capital One Bowl
  • $420 shopping trip to a local Best Buy, Fossil watch

AT&T Cotton Bowl
  • Fossil watch
  • Note: Bowl committee would not disclose additional details about participant gifts, but last year’s gifts included an iPad2 and a Fossil watch.
Outback Bowl
  • $150 Best Buy gift card, Fossil watch, ring, cap, Outback Steakhouse gift card

Seems to me Cotton and Capital One are a wash with Outback far behind

i'm biased and i still can admit the stadium is a dump. however, after the bowl game most of the stadium will be demolished and over $200 million+ is going in to make it a really nice stadium and will be a bid location for future playoff spots. they are also working with the surrounding community to really build the area up

That was a PR move. Tanner probably asked him to give the Florida bowls some love.

I think florida for the coaches is a great free recruiting trip and i don't think spurrier would mind being in florida in the winter for some golf...just saying. there are just as many positives/negatives for each bowl

Between you and me, if I were a player, i'd rather the $420 bestbuy shopping trip. Unless the Cotton Bowl could guarantee an Xbox One or Playstation 4 even then...

Agreed. I don't think it's any coincidence that two of our best bowl wins were against prestigious programs. It's not that I think Spurrier doesn't care about the lesser matchups, per se, but the level of our preparation was noticeably different the past two years than it was for the crap bowls like Papa John's, etc.

I sure hope so but why would the cotton bowl take South Carolina over Mizzou? Geographically it makes no sense either.

I could see Mizzou playing Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl.

& South Carolina playing Wisconsin. Yeah we beat Mizzou but it won't matter IMO. It's all about $ with bowls.

More than ready for this playoff system to start now.

Cotton bowl wants to pick us, the issue is they might not get the chance bc the Cap One picks first and the Outback gets first dibs on an SEC east team. If we are available the Cotton I believe wants to take us and will, but Im not sure that will happen.

Correct me if wrong, but isn't it the Citrus Bowl choice? (Cap 1) They get the option, Cotton gets the other. I may be mistaken.

We can turn down the Cap1 and Onion Ring Bowl if we have a deal in place with the Cotton. That's how I understand it, anyway.

Yup me too, in regards to the playoff (although it needs to be 8, not just 4 teams).

Unless Ray is able to strike some crazy under-the-table deal with the Cotton Bowl reps, it will be Capital One Bowl for us. Like you mentioned, it doesn't make geographic sense for the Cotton bowl to take us, taking tourist $ into account. Although (didn't know this until now) our Columbia is only 5 hrs further drive than Mizzou's Columbia. Even then, the attraction of a possible Big 12 reunion with Mizzou and a Big 12 team will probably win out in the rep's minds.

I know that the Capital One is technically the best non-BCS bowl out there, but playing in the spotlight on Jan 3 (as opposed to Jan 1) and playing a traditional power (possibly Oklahoma) would be sweet. Unfortunately, its all about moolah, and Mizzou is probably the better business option.

You are right about this.

However, you may remember that La Tech went 9-3 last season, but turned down an Independence Bowl bid. They ended up getting left out of the bowl equation all together and sat at home for the holidays. You take a little a little bit of a risk if you get big-headed and turn down a bowl like that.

we could...but that will never happen. we wouldn't want to burn that bridge for the future especially with numerous Carolina alumni and personal friends of spurrier on the selection committee. If the cap 1 selects us its over.
