That was my 40 pointer in my bowl pool.  Total mismatch

It looks like Louisiana Tech has this one. 

Although the 'Stangs got a TD right before halftime to pull within 42-10.

These games not making a compelling case as to why we need all of these bowls.

As for LV, I think the current tie ins are pretty solid.  Only way I'd want Big Ten involved is if we drop the Holiday.  We have enough tie ins with the Pac 12, and the Pac 12 being there makes sense.  Does the Pac 12 have any ACC or SEC agreements?  Considering their fan base travel issues as is, I get them not going east for a bowl, but I would think they could get some ACC or SEC interest to come west

The Sun Bowl is the PAC 12's only Vs ACC tie-in. No Vs SEC Bowls.

The Sun did better when it had a Big Ten tie-in. Never understood why they never pursued the Big 12, but even though El Paso is in Texas it's slightly closer to the California Coast than Houston, and just as out of the way from most of the Big 12.

The Pac 12 stays out west, while the SEC and ACC stay in the Southeast.

Both regions might venture to Texas from time to time in order to take on a Big XII team.

Well,  this video (from 1980) should give you a clue as to the enthusiasm level the Big 8 had towards the Sun Bowl.  Of course, in scenario it was Orange Bowl or Sun Bowl.

Can you imagine Urb and Jim  or Saban and Gus playing pranks on each other like these guys used to do in Norman/Lincoln?

Wed
Frisco Bowl: SMUw-La Tech


The Frisco Bowl last night - by the time I tuned in La Tech was already up by several TDs, but as for the Bowl, I didn't know this was in its first year. Somehow figured it was a re-branding of the Armed Forces or Heart of Dallas Bowls, but turns out it's played in the city of Frisco, in a high school football stadium, on the greater edge of the north Dallas area? How many bowls does that give the Metroplex have now? Four?

Take one of the metroplex bowls and put it in Austin and make it a Pac vs SEC matchup. 
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

I'm thinking there will be a few schools next year that will be wishing they gave Lanie a look.
Pat Jones, former Oklahoma State head coach (Jimmy Johnson's successor) who went on to assistant coaching gigs with the Dolphins and the Raiders and is now a media guy in Oklahoma, said on the air yesterday that he doesn't think Lane Kiffin will ever get hired by a major program because he left Tennessee, USC, and the Raiders in shambles.
Of course, Pat Jones doesn't know everything.  He did coach at Oklahoma State.

He wasn't at Tennessee long enough to leave it in shambles, but that's a different story. I don't like him for how he left UT after one season (Willie Taggart is now on this list, along with Todd Graham, who did it twice, among others.). Still, he improved the record there over the prior year (Fulmer's last).

I think USC's problem was more Pat Haden and sanctions than Lane Kiffin.

The Raiders.. they were 2-14 the year before he got there, and Al Davis was the owner. Enough said.

The guy will get a bigger job, assuming he wants one. He seems to have benefitted from his time (and ass chewings) under Saban.

But, he might just be happy where he is. It's a nice place to live.

The Strip didn't need help from the bowl this year. The bowl game was the same night as the final round of the National Finals Rodeo. For those of you who haven't been to the NFR, it is a huge deal in Vegas and really takes over the city. Normally the bowl would be this upcoming weekend.

What is a Gasparilla? Sounds like some kind of Jurassic flower. Or Taco Bell sponsored dog food.
