The Orange Bowl is a BCS bowl, so yes, it's premier. I said "premier NON BCS bowl."

Premier non BCS bowls (as redundant as that sounds) should have their own time slot.

You would think if the Capital One was as big as everyone says it is, someone at ABC/ESPN would have the nerve to put it in its own time slot.

Also, keep in mind this is the first time in recent memory that the Cotton and Orange bowls are on at the same time. They usually have their own time slots, but for some odd reason someone at the networks messed up this year.

I never once said they CFA bowl was more prestigious than the Capital One, but again, what I said was probably too deep for you to comprehend.

What I said was if the Capital One is so prestigious, why doesn't it have it's own time slot? You guys are making this bowl out to be the Rose Bowl of the east coast or something.

I went to the bowl games the last two seasons. I had a great time at both. However... When I went to the capital one bowl two years ago I parked close to the stadium where two young guys were holding a sign outside of the business. They charge $20 and I notice maybe 20 other cars had already parked there. I parked there only to return after the game to find my car missing along with every other car there and a police car outside of there letting everyone know of the scam of the people selling the parking spaces that had no affiliation with the lot and the real owner had all the vehicles towed. So I got to walk a mile to an impound to pay $80 to get my car back. The stadium is right off of the interstate and the place surrounding the stadium is a freaking slum!

No, but only because I'll be visiting family in California at the time. I went to the Capital One Bowl a couple years ago and had an awesome time. If I were going to be in the area, I'd definitely go again.

I agree totally...after losing my 22 year old daughter a year ago, I realize how precious life is and how much every day is a gift.....I will be taking my 26 year old son (for the 4th out of 5 years to a Bowl Game)...We are staying at the Crowne Plaza, about 1.5 miles from the stadium, so we will walk there and leave the ride at the hotel so we do not have to pay for parking (The hotel may have a shuttle to the stadium, too).....Already have the rooms lined up using my IHG points!!!

GO COCKS!!!

Default Re: Will you attend the Cap One Bowl

I'm not one to frequent taternet, but they are on there all laughing up a storm that we are in this bowl and they luck into a BCS game again. They make fun of our fans for everything but the only thing I can say about them that makes me sick looking at this thread. Their fans travel! They couldn't care less what bowl they are in. They travel.

Here we are half saying we'll go and the other half saying no way. It's one thing to not be able to go. It's a complete other to not want to go. If you are a Gamecocks fan and you have to money to go see your team play and support the boys, why not go?

I can't go. If I had 500 bucks to spare I would have already bought my game and plane ticket.

We have got to travel better for our team guys.

Naw.

I've spent the past two New Years in Florida. That'll do for a while. I would have gone to Dallas though. If we were matched up against someone more exciting than Wisconsin, I might have considered it.

Ybor City on New Year's Eve was really cool last year might I add.

I'll be there.

The fans that are complaining about this bowl game and boycotting it, and therefore hurting our ticket sales numbers are doing nothing but hurting us for future bowl opportunities. How in the world anybody here thinks we would take 20,000 fans to Dallas, TX is beyond me. I priced it. For me, and my wife to fly out, spend a couple of days in a hotel in Dallas, game tickets, plus food....that trip was going to be WELL over $1,000. We are planning on spending around 3-4 days in Orlando, are splitting a place to stay with another family we know that is going, and spending a couple of days doing the whole Disney thing, and it it still going to cost us less than $1,000. This bowl game just makes sense for us.

I am!!! This Orlando native gamecock student is ECSTATIC about going to the 2014 Capitol One bowl presented by Capitol One (What's in your wallet?).

My friends get to visit over break, I get to enjoy New Year's with them, and go see my gamecocks play in person? HELL YES.

Also, I don't have to pay for a hotel which is neat! Also people are forgetting the Hunter Hayes concert for free. It's going to be Gameday, the garnet way!

The cotton bowl sells out every year, so just because you wouldnt go doesnt mean we wouldnt sell our allotment.

Technically, the Cotton Bowl is already sold out. I'm just saying that we wouldn't send that many fans out there, and would be outnumbered big time.

Also, I was going to attend the Cotton Bowl. Didn't think I was going to be able to at first, but had decided that I didn't want to miss it if we went.
