Charleston might not be an option with The Citadel reducing their stadium seating to 14,000. We’ll see.

Brooks Stad. at CCU seats only 15,000 according to their AD, fewer if a legit count is actually taken. 🖥


If it happens to the Apps, it happens to me!

Is not CCU expanding as I type this? Not a large expansion but will be done by the time this all settles down with new bowl games.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

according to the article, CCU expanded to 15K for 2017 season and is expected to expand to 20K for 2018 season, so I assume construction is in progress.

Yay more bowl games! The NCAA and ESPN are absolutely clueless. I guess they live in an alternate reality.

To be fair, more bowl games = more money.
More money for the schools, the host, broadcasters, coaches etc.

Do I personally think we need more bowl games? No.
But it's all about more money.

While I think a bowl located in Greenville and/or Myrtle Beach is a good thing for App, more bowls only equal more money for ESPN. Almost all lower-tier bowls are losing propositions for the participating schools.

The money is a myth argument at a certain point. This "everybody gets a ribbon".. sort of deal, just ruins what should be a reward for teams with a strong winning record. I'm sorry, I'm just old school on this.

I used to feel this way, then I realized two things. First, a 6-6 Big Ten team would get invited to a bowl game before a 10 win Sun Belt team. More bowl games are better for us. Second, I read an article about the 2007 Indiana football team which made what is now the Cactus Bowl and what that meant for the players. Indiana has been a bad program historically and Terry Hoeppner, their head coach, died right before the season started. It was a powerful read about how much it meant to them to make that bowl game in his honor. I imagine for New Mexico State making and winning a bowl game last year was huge considering their history and future, same for Idaho the year before.

I understand where you are coming from on this. I grew up when a ribbon, a medal, or a trophy was an award for a real accomplishment. Nonetheless, college football is ultimately an entertainment industry, and I am not opposed to more entertainment of this type.

Charleston, and to a lesser degree MB , would be a lot of fun for ten or fifteen thousand Mountaineers to gather. Seafood , maybe even a couple of rounds of golf .....

Not sure how a post about bowl games and the discussion related to sports becomes some opportunity to post a bunch of crap youtube videos.... really?

We have any idea what conferences these bowls will be tied to? Feel like we probably wont even be in the discussion.

I was wondering the same thing but I would have to think the Myrtle Beach bowl would have a Sunbelt tie in....probably Sunbelt vs. CUSA. The size of the facility and the location would make that the obvious guess...but just a guess.

Heard Greenville NC - EZU - talking about being in the running for one of the expanded bowls. i'm all about more football, but a trip to Greenville?

Maybe two schools with losing records go there as a reward for sucking.

:roll:
The relationship between a song about Myrtle Beach and a Bowl game/fan experience in Myrtle Beach is just too attenuated. An inconceivable link between the two. Imagine his outrage when he was forced to click play on the youtube link. Totally off-point. Crap youtube video too, an assessment obviously based on watching the whole thing.

If App has the pleasure of playing in the Gay Dolphin Bowl or whatever title this hypothetical game receives, I pledge to blast Sunny Ledford at the tailgate ALL DAY just for our message board's curmudgeon types. They'll come around.

Looks like B1G Ten/ACC get one if it goes to Chicago.

Please just get this over with. Let every FBS team schedule an additional non conference game as the last game of the season instead of just adding a couple " Bowls" every few years.
