Default Gator Bowl

The Gator Bowl and Coach Tanner have been in contact with each other, and both agree we would be a good fit for each other this season.

Tanner doesn't want our fans to have to drive to Tampa, and both the Outback Bowl and Carolina have some bad feelings about our last appearance down there.

However, it's not clear if the Outback bowl would pass on us and take a western division team (likely LSU or TAMU) as the Outback has always preferred teams from the east.

I think it sucks that beating Clemson actually hurt our bowl possibilities (not being able to go to the CFA), but I'd much rather have the short drive to Jax. than have the "honor" for playing in what is perceived as a better bowl.

I've seen a lot of speculation on where we will end up but does anyone know when the bowl committees meet and select teams?

I'd much rather go to Jacksonville or Tampa than Atlanta. Not just better destinations but also I'd rather play a good team than an ACC team. The conference split makes any pay out difference negligible.

All I care about is who we play. The venue/bowl does not matter as much as how attractive it looks on paper. Look at last year when Gator had Florida and Ohio State.

Playing in Outback versus Northwestern would be such a yawner. If it were a Michigan, Michigan State, etc. it would be one thing but we all know Northwestern is a big zero when it comes to excitability. I have no idea what bowl I want to be in because I don't know who the opponent will be. I want a big name school personally...

Well I was saying it more because the OP was talking about beating Clemson hurting our bowl possibilities. I think it helped because I don't want to go to Atlanta. I like the SEC bowls that matchup with the Big12 and Big10. When we start getting down to the bowls that matchup with the ACC, Big East, CUSA, etc it's less exciting than an average regular season conference game.


That said, I'd take the penalty if it meant a 7-6 team represented the ACC in the BCS. That would provide a wealth of material for me in the smack forum.

When did he say that. All I heard is he thought we would go to a Florida bowl.
Why would we want to go to a bowl that has a smaller payout.

If we play in the Gator, we aren't playing either Michigan (CapOne) or Northwestern (Outback). Clemson is almost guaranteed to play in Atlanta.

The Gator would be all right; I haven't been there since we played in the Gator Bowl in 1984. I'd rather have the Capital One or Outback, though.

Payouts don't really mean anything bc the bowl monies are all divided amongst the conference schools later on.

Ole Miss becoming bowl eligible has more impact on how much money we will receive rather than what bowl we actually play in.
