So, from what I have seen, if we don't win out, people have us locked in for the the emerald bowl in san francisco.
Which brings me to this question..
If people know we don't travel well, why would they put us in a bowl on the other side of the country?
Well, if we are to go to that bowl, it will be against a Pac-10 team. Word is that it would be Arizona right now.
If we can't be in the Orange Bowl, I would be content with the Champs Sports Bowl down in Orlando. That was a nice venue when we went there.
Meineke Car Care & Champs have both taken us recently, I can't see why they would pass us up this year.
But, as you said, and everyone else says, these bowls are in it for the money & BC won't produce much money with their fanbase.
I'm just going to cross my fingers come selection day (should we not get to & win the acc championship).
I understand the Emerald Bowl is one of the worst bowls for the acc, but I still can't see why they would stick us there solely because of our bad history of our traveling. It just doesn't make sense to me.
We've been competitive for a few years now, where is our fanbase?
Just found this from the globe...
One of the many positive byproducts of Boston College's 27-17 win over Florida State Saturday night was that it enhanced the Eagles' bowl possibilities.
With seven victories already in the bank, BC leapfrogged the Congressional Bowl in Washington and the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, ID. The Eagles would have passed on the Congressional Bowl regardless because the Dec. 20th game is at the end of exam week.
So with two games remaining in the regular season, the most likely bowl possibilities for the Eagles are:
Orange Bowl: If they are the ACC champions.
Music City Bowl: If they win both remaining regular season games but lose the ACC title game.
Emerald Bowl: If they split or lose their two remaining regular season games against Wake Forest and Maryland.
Although the ACC has bowl arrangements for nine of its teams, a few bowls seem unlikely for the Eagles:
Gator Bowl: Officials are focusing on inviting Notre Dame. Why would they want a rematch of a regular season game in which BC spanked the Irish, 17-0? They are more likely to try to add Miami or Florida State.
Chick-fil-A Bowl: This bowl passed on a Matt Ryan-led team last season. It could take BC coming off a loss in the championship game with four losses, but it is more likely to take a team from the ACC Coastal Division such as North Carolina, Miami, or Virginia Tech.
Champs Sports Bowl: The Eagles went there last season.
Meineke Car Care Bowl: BC has played in that bowl twice in the last four seasons.
Which leaves the most likely destinations as the . . .
Music City Bowl: BC's last appearance was in 2001, when they knocked off Georgia.
. . . and the . . .
Emerald Bowl: BC's last appearance was in 2003, when they defeated Colorado State.
Both would work. The Emerald Bowl is Dec. 27th and the Music City Bowl is New Year's Eve afternoon against either a Pac-10 or Southeastern Conference opponent.
What a game against WF. I have to admit I had my doubts on them winning after Wake took the lead, and watching the way Davis had played most of the game.
Crane is a big loss, but if Davis can play next week the way he did on that last drive, then we should be in good shape for the championship game.
Yeah, it was a shame to see Crane's football career end the way it did. But, if Davis plays against Maryland the way he played on that last drive, we have a great shot. Go BC, beat those Terps!
Finally, somebody has us projected to be in the Orange Bowl.
Just checking on CBS Sports, and they have us projected to be there against Cincinnati.
