Re: Just shaking my head

Pastner seems like a weird dude, with a weird life and a strange career path.

Re: Just shaking my head

Money has little to do with it. See Western Michigan or Northern Illinois.

It’s probably just me but the G5 honorary spot in a NY6 game is just watered down and doesn’t mean a heck of a lot anymore....or ever really.....

Power 5 schools don’t want to play a G5 school in a New Years game. They have far superior athletes and if the game ends up close it’s only because the P5 school just didn’t care. Even the Boise upset of Oklahoma was a prime example of a team that didn’t want to be there playing a team with nothing to lose. Same with Auburn v UCF.

Do you know what the attendance would be for a USM V Michigan Peach Bowl game? Far less than a USM V Florida or a USM V South Carolina regular season game. The environment would be far better in the regular season game than a half empty Peach Bowl. Do you think Michigan would give a rats a$$ effort playing us in a Peach a Bowl? Nope. Do you think we would really have the athletes to honestly compete with a Michigan or Penn St? Nope.

Does being in a New Years bowl game really do anything for a program? Ask UCONN.......

Re: Just shaking my head

This is basically the 11th place game. The winner will be forgotten as quickly as the winner of the Armed Forces Bowl. Thanks ESPN for another year of the P5 Championship  (AKA College Football Playoff )

Re: Just shaking my head

Seems pretty cynical to me. A Cotton Bowl berth means at least as much to me as winning some G5 tournament. A Cotton Bowl win means far more.

And the secret to college football has not changed: cheat. Works at every level. You've just got to want it, and Memphis wants it more than USM does.

Re: Just shaking my head
