    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Florida Bowl Game Starting in 2014

    What the heck is the Russell Athletic Bowl. It appears to be a pretty good bowl considering it's the ACC's #1 non playoff team vs the Big 12's #2 but I've never heard of it. Did it get renamed or something?

    It's ran by the Florida Citrus group but it's not the old Citrus bowl (that the Capital One Bowl I think)

    Is it just a second Citrus Bowl (Cap One's sibling)?

    The bowl was founded in 1990 by Raycom[2] and was originally played at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami where it was known as the Blockbuster Bowl, the CarQuest Bowl, and the MicronPC Bowl. The bowl was also known as the Tangerine Bowl, the original name for the Capital One Bowl, from the time it moved to Orlando until Foot Locker, the parent company of Champs Sports, purchased naming rights in 2004, naming it the Champs Sports Bowl. On June 18, 2012, naming rights were purchased by Russell Athletic for the 2012-2015 games.

    The Florida guys mean diddly compared to the fact that it would mean we would be at or going for 10 wins.

    Basically this doesn't affect us much unfortunately.

    I cannot express how much I hate most of the names of the bowl games these days.
