I think App gets the Cure Bowl. Just a hunch but Ark St will get NO, Troy gets Mobile, and Ga St gets the Camelia.

You may be right - but why would the Camellia Bowl want GaSt over APP? - their attendance is poor ---

My opinion is based solely on two beliefs. 1) Potential for decreased ticket sales being a third straight trip, and 2) close proximity of Montgomery to Atlanta.

The battle of the two most successful FCS/FBS transitions, and a rekindled rivalry. Works for me.

I still hate Marshall.

It's my understanding that most bowl projections are strictly based off conference standings. Hell, we aren't even eligible yet. Sun Belt doesn't do it that way if I remember correctly. The bowls get to pick who they want...I might be wrong. New Orleans who I think gets first pick isn't happening if that's the case. Arkansas State has already proven they can bring large crowds to New Orleans.

Yes - I think you are right - NO gets the first pick and they can pick any eligible SB team and they have shown historically they will pick LA-L if eligible and after that pick the most "local" team ---

Georgia State would take all 100 people they have at their home games to Montgomery.

You may be right. I still don't see us going back to Montgomery three years in a row though.

Been thinking the same about us in Orlando, assuming we actually get eligible. I think we were already going to push for a different spot, and I have to think disappointing season + third straight trip to Montgomery would be a recipe for a big drop in attendance.

Question is, what happens if ULL is eligible and NOLA takes them? I would think the two Alabama bowls would go to stAte and Troy, then Cure chooses between us and GSU and the other gets shipped across the country.

Correct - the one downside to Orlando. It's on CBS Sports Network, which isn't the most widely available or easiest to find.

I'm OK with the Cure Bowl not being available through ESPN. I would be there as it is a two hour trip for me. But aside from that, it brings in a better opponent from perception.
