Default Bowl Predictions for this week and People have faith in our Gamecocks

College Football news has us still in the Outback but vs Michigan. Cbs Sportsline has us in the Sugar Bowl vs Louisville. I will take those all day. I dont think the Outback Bowl wants us 2yrs in a so I would be ok with Capital, Gator, or Chick Fila and dang sure would take the Sugar Bowl. My goal is The Sugar but the Gator or Chick Fila would be ok to. Whats you guys and gals thoughts on this?

Sugar Bowl is the best case scenario and I would love an at large BCS bid, but the Citrus, Peach or Gator Bowl would be great bowls to go to.

To be an at large BCS team, we at least need to be in the top 6 in rankings. Any of you honestly believe we belong there?

no we don't belong in the top 6 but you don't have to be in the top 6 to be an at large bcs team...the qualifications are that the team must have 9 wins and finish in the top 14(and only 2 from a conference)

The chick-fil-a bowl sucks. No one wants younger stuck watching football on NYE night. Move the game to an earlier time.

I know it is virtually impossible due to the proximity with the West division but sure would love to see us in the cotton bowl at jerryworld.

Isn't the bowl selection different this year? Doesn't the SEC pick who goes where after the Sugar selection? We could end up anywhere if this is the case.

Default Re: Bowl Predictions for this week and People have faith in our Gamecocks

^yes technically that is the new official rule but the SEC has been choosing which team goes where for years honestly. Last year, for example, the capital 1 bowl committee absolutely did not want UGA and voted unanimously on another team. The sec stepped in and basically forced them to take uga because they didn't want a team to be penalized for playing an extra game in the sec championship. The sec used its bargaining power of future hosting sites, playoff games, etc... as leverage.
-Basically now that the sec officially chooses the teams, unless we win out and are a hot commodity with a much better record, we will always been chosen behind an alabama, lsu, uga, florida, a&m, etc because of the amount of prestige that comes with their names and the money they can make from their huge fan bases.

Somewhat true...I'd imagine that if we win out, the Sugar Bowl would pick us over LSU (location, no hotel money) or Florida (awful attendance last year) assuming we had similar records. The wild card would be A&M. Assuming they have 2 loses, and UGA loses 2 more or to Bama in the SEC championship game, I think there'd be a great chance for us going to the Sugar if we win out.

in this scenario only. That is a lot of ifs that we would need to happen plus the most unlikely would probably be us actually winning out. I meant in my post that if we do lose again the sec will skip over us in a heartbeat IMO

Default Re: Bowl Predictions for this week and People have faith in our Gamecocks

In THEORY, everything is still possible. If we win out till the last game, then beat an undefeated Clemson team, then the Sugar Bowl is a strong possibility.

If, in the meantime, Georgia loses and sets up a miracle for us to go to Atlanta, and we somehow beat an undefeated Alabama team, we play for the National Championship.

My personal expectations are set for a 9-3 regular season with a trip to the Gator Bowl. From the games I am watching, I think we have taken one step forward on offense and two steps back on defense. Who knows? We might get things figured out this week, but if things don't change, I think Gator Bowl is realistic.

You're seriously smoking crack if you think we're going to the Sugar Bowl.

The Outback would LOVE to have us play Michigan, especially if Clowney is still on the team.

But I think Gator or Chick Fila is where we'll end up.
