    Re: Champions Bowl will be at Sugar Bowl

    It's still going to be called the Sugar Bowl. Nice.

    Re: Champions Bowl will be at Sugar Bowl

    Not a big fan of it being played in the heart of SEC country. Nor of it just being the Sugar Bowl - lots of money left on the table by allowing a Bowl Committee to leach away a bunch of the TV revenue.

    Well, if you listen to the interview at the top of the link, Arlington initially had the highest bid, and the conferences went back to New Orleans and asked them to increase their bid. Gotta love that kind of "bidding" process.

    Apparently the bidding process was to determine which SEC city was going to host the game...

    If ISU ever got good enough to make it to this game, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

    Amen. NOLA is a fun town.

    I can see the complaint that it is in SEC country, but not going to worry about it too much. If we ever make it, I will be so thrilled, could care less if it was at the Boise blue field.

    Besides, the days of ISU fans complaining about Texas, or the Big 12 offices, or SEC pulling this off should be over. ISU athletics was nearly on the trash heap the last couple of years with realignment talk. Like it or not, ISU in the Big 12 is 10x better than the Big 12 going away. And anything that strengthens the Big 12 (like this Champions Bowl Game with the SEC) is fine by me, no matter who got over on who a little.

    The deal was $80 million right? That's the same as the rose bowl

    Yeah it's either Texas or "SEC Country". It isn't like there is a bowl in Kansas or Oklahoma we could've picked.

    Re: Champions Bowl will be at Sugar Bowl

    Anyone able to post a link that would explain how the new playoff system works?

    I'm trying to figure out who benefits the most and I guess I'm not smart enough to figure it out. 475 million a year is a lot of money, hoping we get our 4 million from Sugar + share of other big 12 involvement. I beleive national championship game is on top of the 475 million as well, anyone confirm?
