    It is slowing changing, but I'm pretty sure there are a number of fanbases that groan at the prospect of playing us too. We not exactly a sexy matchup.

    Which is also why it takes away from the bowl experience too because fans will be more spread out than say Memphis or San Antonio.

    yeah, but it’s more spread out and not quite the Iowa state takeover like the other two. I couldn’t go to San Antonio so I’d love a repeat of that. But in Memphis it was like it was only iowa stste fans.

    I don’t disagree with that but playing anyone from the ACC not named Clemson just doesn’t excite me.

    Oustside of a NY6 this is my preferred bowl game. I get that Orlando won't be an idea bowl scenario but I like it because it is one we haven't been to yet.

    Right, which is a totally different statement than filtering by “big city”. Orlando itself isn’t big, and the metro area isn’t different than any of the Texas cities.

    What people really like is better urban planning and centralization. Orlando itself is barely bigger than DSM. Orlando kind of sucks, not just for Bowl games, for the reasons you listed imo

    The Big 12 needs another bowl in Florida, not necessarily Orlando, but we need to get rid of a Texas bowl or the Cactus bowl and pick up another in Florida. Wish the Gator Bowl was still with the Big 12.

    Big 12 bowl tie ins are just terrible. Outside of the Alamo the B12s higher tier bowl games are not good. Playing Wake Forest or Virginia would suck IMO

    Is a "non-marquee" team that brings a boatload of fans even less desirable to opposing fans?

    When I see Wake Forest my first thought isn't that they suck but that ISU fans would outnumber them 10 to 1. I'm guessing some ISU fans like that and some would rather have it be two huge groups of fans. Playing a team with less fans can keep cost down.

    I also bet most ACC, SEC, Pac, or G5 fans wouldn't even realize that ISU will bring 10s of thousands. Big Ten West fans would know.

    Sucks we lost the Holiday Bowl just as we would have moved into contention for it.

    My projection: Cyclone fans will turn Bourbon St. Cardinal and Gold.

    I’d go just for the mini golf opportunities in Kissimee.

    Great location for those with families. As someone with no kids and doesn’t want to eat at Orlando Applebee’s all week i have very little desire to go to Orlando

    My wife and I in a heartbeat. Because, quite honestly, we're getting to the age where we don't know how many beats we have left, but are still kids at heart.

    Only good thing is it's a place we've never been to. I wouldn't go since I've been a ton of times for conferences and one coming up in November and I'm pretty well Orlando'ed out. Plus it's not a young people with no family type of city.

    Also the area around the Stadium is really ******

    Sugar Bowl or bust for me.

    Dec 27-29 and Jan 2+ windows are the only dates that we can ever attend a bowl, due to annual obligations. So yeah, I would like to go. Might be problematic this year coming one month after Battle4Atlantis, though.
