ND Vs. TX would be a TV Grand slam for the Camping World Bowl and ESPN.
I know bowls like to brag about the total economic impact they bring to the overall economy, but I just have this feeling the good boys club board of directors don't really care about the grater impact of the city. I assume all they care about is selling as many tickets as possible and ad revenue for the game to pad their salary. Economic impact probably allows them good talking points in their respective cities in order to the city to bend over backwards to get what the bowl wants.
If the particular bowl game doesn't help the local economy the the local businesses have no reason to support it. The bowl needs the local business support to keep existing.
Downtown Orlando was fun! Hamburger Mary’s was great! Great food/drink, art, night life, etc. Only negative was traffic! Disney Springs shopping was a cool place, also!
Let's not kid ourselves, if Ohio State was sitting where OU is right now (with the exact same resume as OU has), there would be no question that if they won their championship game they would jump Utah.
With that being said, and I hate to say this, but I think Baylor is probably better than OU, and if Baylor wins tomorrow they should probably jump Utah as well, but it would be awesome if they don't because of their absolutely atrocious and embarrassing non conference schedule.
I mean OU spotted BU 28 points and home field advantage and still won. BU is not the better team
I hope you're right, but Baylor just laid down after getting up so much IMO. They should have known better, especially against OU, but they didn't.
We'll find out tomorrow I guess. I'd love to see OU destroy them, but I think it will likely come down to another shootout..... which the media will love so they can just trash Big 12 defenses again.
Somehow, I think if we went to Orlando, a chain hamburger place and a shopping mall are probably not going to be the hot spots.
I'll be hosting a tailgate that the McDonald's on the corner of 91st and Sunshine Pkwy.
We might as well decline any invitation then, since we'll just lose...
C'mon; stop being silly and stop whining. We're likely to play at least a decent to a good team in any bowl matchup, whether it's a P5 or a G5 team. It does absolutely no good to quiver in your boots about who we could play and fret about possibly losing.
Those teams and their fans could be saying the exact same thing about us.
Tell every to order off the dollar menu and settle up later?
The economic impact probably matters to certain bowls/communities more than others. San Antonio really embraces the Alamo Bowl but can you say the same for Orlando and the Camping World Bowl?
Honestly, I think their first game had more to do with OU not taking Baylor seriously enough. If OU gets the first punch in tomorrow I can see it getting out of hand fast. My prediction is that OU puts together their best game of the season and wins comfortably.
Also, I think that OU's best WR didn't play that game (concussion protocol) and will be playing Saturday. Lastly, OU will dominate the attendance - I think BU fans will show up but not nearly as many.
My guess is the City and Chambers are big partners in the bowl game and they care quite a bit about economic impact.
Lolz, okay. There's not one player or coach at ISU that is even slightly intimidated by the jizz jars or the leprechauns. I'd love for aTm or ND to get a chance to prove how much more talented they are than ISU.
There's no question ND has more 4 and 5 star recruits than ISU. It's not the talent level Irish fans are worried about with the Cyclones, it's Matt Campbell and his coaching staff.
i guarantee you the players and coaches would love a shot at ND or A&M
So if Oregon pulls out this W, OU beats the bad bears tomorrow but barely, that puts OU at 4th CFP spot, Baylor maybe* in NY6, where does that likely put us? Memphis still?
Better shot at Houston or Orlando. Probably still Memphis though
