    If the Buffs get in (sadly, we could finish 7th in the Big XII next year) I'll be there too. Maybe we'll bring Ralphie to run from home to first.

    You've got to think they'd be very interested in having Rutgers

    I read the matchup would be Big East #4 vs. Big 12 #7. They'd be happy with Rutgers, UConn, or Syracuse. Odds are 1 of them will be bowl eligible and not taken by bowls higher up the food chain.

    As an RU alum and a Yankees season ticket holder, the last place I want to go for a bowl game is Yankee Stadium. I like to travel to a destination (warm is nice in January) for a bowl game. That said, it's better than no bowl game, and if we didn't make a warm weather bowl, I would end up buying the ticket.

    If the tickets aren't outrageous and if I would be in the area when it would be played (currently living in MA so NYC isn't exactly close), I might go once just to say that I did - but other than that I can't get too excited. Especially since it's the #4 Big East team (potentially not terrible) against the #7 Big 12 team (probably pretty bad).

    Also an RU Alum and I'm a Yankees partial plan holder. I agree that I'd want the bowl somewhere warm. Like the Orange Bowl in Miami or somewhere else where it's warm.

    Me too

    And I still can't figure out why college football would want to have a bowl game at NYS when they could hold it at the new Meadowlands Stadium.

    The last time YS hosted a bowl game football-only pro stadiums didn't exist. There's a reason that now they do,

    I have Jim Beam Suite seats for that game. Private entrance and supersonic elevator. Free tap water as well.
    I'm frantic... Jeter Ceremony Date - when will this be announced????


    Thank goodness we now know.

    The last time there was a Bowl game in NY back in the 1960's it was a disaster. There is a reason Bowl games are held in the South. I doubt many people are going to want to see a college game between two low ranked teams in January. Afterall the top Big 12 and Big East FB teams will be playing in the major Bowl games.
