Once we get this NAACP shit cleared up, WB would be a great place to hold post-season football games. Hell, as much as I hate to admit it, the other school has a decent stadium, too. And a bowl game in Charleston would pump millions into its economy...Not to mention Colonial Life Arena has the potential to be one of the nicer basketball venues in the southeast.

Would be nice for us to clean this mess up and be able to showcase the world class facilities that we all work so hard to create to the rest of the nation.
I understand your sentiment on the subject, but in reality lets be honest. No one wanted to come here because we never won anything. Now that we have I believe our chances for hosting, and yes even power to attempt has increased exponentially. I believe we could bring one in.

True, thank god that the Final Four playoff isn't this year. Do you realize the kind of post that would be made on this board if a loss at Tennessee cost us a chance at being in the playoff? Even had we won this year I think the BCS still would've taken AU and UA.
The loss to Tenn did keep us out of a four team playoff this year. The SECCG and the winner goes to the BCSNCG.

This year the final 4 would probably have been FSU, Auburn, Alabama and Michigan State.
FSU vs MSU
Bama vs Auburn
This of course would have been determined before any of the bowl games.
So we'd go to the CFA or Cotton bowl this year, in that new system.

Columbia SC wouldn't host a national title game.

There are plenty of post season games that aren't the national title game.

Sorry, then a final four for college football.
I equate it to a Super Bowl really, and don't see the Super Bowl coming to Columbia any time soon.

Why would we host a game? The playoff games are played at bowl sites...

Someone asked in this thread. Also other cities are in the running for games.

I just don't believe Cola will get it.

Probably, but those bowls financially would be the equivalent of the current BCS bowl payouts. Did you see in the explanation I posted, there is a 7.3 billion payout over 12 years. That's about 600 million per year divided between teams and/or conferences. And according to the system next year, the committee will determine not only the final four but the other 4 bowls (8 teams) as well, subject to those bowls and their conference affiliations.

The national championship game is not affiliated with any bowl so any city has the right to "bid" on that game. So in theory, the national championship game could be played in Columbia.....I'm not addressing the flag issue purposely.

It could, but with Charlotte and Atlanta so close, it would NEVER happen.

Cola would probably have a low level bowl game by now though, if it weren't for the flag issue.
