these could be the only Sun Belt teams bowling this season…Georgia State’s chances are not good and neither are South Alabama’s
Anyone know the payout from the camellia bowl?
A $100 Big Lots gift card and a coupon for buy one get one appetizers at TGI Fridays lol
$100,000 each. And a visit to Cracker Barrel at the Eastchase Mall exit?
Good site for tracking bowl payouts:
great replays. But– I think Geargia Southern receives their gift card from Yellow Wood.
Cracker Barrel is at the Chantilly Blvd. exit, Eastchase is one exit up
Chantilly… urban sprawl name. It’ll always be the Mitylene exit to me…. but it’s at the east end of Eastchase sprawl. Taylor Road exit is at the west end of Eastchase. Same difference. Still doesn’t get us a Poulan WeedEater gift card!
David at least you know what you’re talking about instead of making fun of Montgomery. As as resident of Slapout (that’s right) I can say Montgomery has improved greatly over the past 20 years.
Wow, a GSU QB actually droping back for a pass!
Good for the Commish to get these settled. More opportunity for school’s fans to travel/attend than waiting until a week from now and a bit more than a week before the games. Another big “miss” with these ESPN-only-interested bowls: they are held less than two weeks following the end of the season (except Army/Navy?).
Someone failed to list the Bowl Game for the Georgia Bulldogs. They have been invited and accepted to play in the Toilet Bowl in Flushing, ohio.
i thought that game was Idaho v. Cent. Florida….
Its Central Florida vs Kansas in the Toilet Bowl, battle of the only 0-12 teams
Winner gets EMU
South may get one at 5-7,if they lose their last game.
There was a time when the Hurricanes would play anyone anywhere….I am not sure this is what they had in mind.
gonna be more embarrissing after we beat you
The attendance @ this game beat any other Miami home game!
True, Matt……count on a SRO crowd of 31,000 at Kidd-Brewer..
I like this match-up. It may not be the most appealing match-up ever, but it will be a really good game. This is a good sign for for App State. Maybe not so good for Miami with the scheduling, but this is a win-win for both teams.
Miami makes more money doing a home and home with a Sun Belt opponent? Sad….
Sad? No, sad will be the state of the hurricane fans when App State lays the smack down on the U….
More embarrassing than the Clemson game at home this year??????????
This is called “Miami AD Blake James is building goodwill in areas around the country which have mostly forgotten about U football.”
For recruiting purposes, playing in North Carolina, Arkansas, and Ohio isn’t a bad move at all. NC high school football is hugely competitive. Why yield all these recruits to UNC, NCSU, WFU, Duke and Clemson? Arkansas is fertile ground, too. There are only two Div I colleges to compete against, UAF and ASU. Ohio is always good call–Miami used to attract a lot of ballers from the Midwest and doesn’t much anymore.. .and playing Toledo as opposed to tOSU means a likelier win.
I thought bake James was smart, is he? Schedule a Baylor, alabama,Michigan wvu can beat those teams grow a pair hire Davis show the world who has the greatest football program
Miami will probably have a lot of fans at this game. It is a little known secret that most rich south Florida Floridians have summer homes in the North Carolina mountains.
I just wish that home and home with Southern Miss would happen. Florida raider Louisville has increased their recruiting in Mississippi the last few years so it would make since for Miami to do the same. At least it makes more since than playing Arkansas State in Jonesboro. Mississippi State won’t even do that!
the U better get ready for app state… you think just because there a power five school they will just blow by app, yea tell that to Michigan fans. #ftc
Looks just like an SEC West Schedule. 1 Good team, 3 cupcakes. Guaranteed 3-1 or 4-0 start. Just need a 3-5 or 2-6 Conference record to make it to a bowl game. Lol.
Haven’t the Miami fans suffered enough/ With all seriousness, this makes no sense unless they are doing a 3 for 1 with Appalachian St.
#Miami would be lucky to play at App. State. In fact, the college gameday experience and atmosphere at Miami games pales in comparison to #Appalachian home games. Worse yet, I doubt the #hurricanes leave with a win. #welcometotherock
homer? Shep? As if the thousands of Miami fans supporting a team that hasn’t done anything in the past 15 years dropping loads of “they aren’t good enough to lick the dirt off our cleats” attitude aren’t homers? Give me a break. The U has boatloads of history and nobody can take that away, but Miami needed a game for 9/17/2016, App had UMass in that slot, who bought the game out to play South Carolina, filled the spot with and FCS, and were looking to upgrade. App had the opportunity and availability to host Miami and all the bargaining chips: “come to Boone first or find yourself another road opponent on 10 months’ notice.”
The Hurricanes would be right at home….felons playing in a stadium named after a felon.
Stfu Loser. You’re the type to bring up a teams bad past but ignore their championships with “that’s just history from 20+ years ago” and I’d bet that you’re a gator fan too or of another program who routinely sends players to jail. So sit your ass down clown
Who on Miami’s current roster are you referring to when you refer to them as felons? Careful, your uneducated bias is showing or is that stupidity?
This would be no different than a trip to Duke or Wake except for a better game day atmosphere in Boone. Cleaner air and better football.
Duke ow Wake Forest would be a conference game for Miami. Visiting a team in the Sun Belt conference that has only been playing in D 1-A for a few years is completely different.
Miami opened the 2003 season at La. Tech seven months after playing in the National Title Game. Just saying.
Economics of college football are much different 13 years later. Even Purdue or Wake Forest doesn’t play a G5 team without at least a return game, and the bigger name P5 teams should get at ;least a 2-1. Miami may be in a rough patch butb they are still a better draw than half the P5 teams.
Check this out:
Current Record as of 18 Nov 15
Middle Tennessee State 5 – 5 (Con. USA)
University of Louisiana Monroe 1 – 9 (Sun Belt)
Charleston Southern 9 – 1 (Big South)
Strength of schedule considered against these powerhouses has one time in the top 4 of the playoffs. So I don’t want to hear anything about cupcakes.
Come on… Power 5 teams are going to gravitate to the lower level FBS teams so there’s no discussion of strength of schedule. They are going to play MAC, Sun Belt or American Athletic teams. Miami has ND for the next 2 years at least. They play FSU, VT, UNC and yeah Duke this year… That’s not a bad schedule.. plus they have one more team to pick up for the opener.
App state is not to be taken lightly! this coming from a die hard canes fan!
