Can’t we ever get a P5 opponent?

I would have gone on Jan 4th. Already have family Christmas plans on the 20th.

This team could have used the extra practice time for next year.

Well, let’s win it and build a little momentum for next year. Can’t say I’m not a little disappointed but probably about where we belong.

Post by Usu0505 » December 8th, 2019, 2:00 pm

Air Force had a season about like we did last year and is getting the cheez it vs Washington. What bowl were we in last year again?

Think I must have seen bad information on this one. Don’t think it’s Washington and the cheez it bowl has no participants yet from what I can see

I think USU is taking the place of an AAC team. That conference couldn’t fill that bowl. A seven-win MWC team is going to get a bowl like this, and I’m happy with this game. It’s nice to be selected for a game outside the normal conference lineup.

I'm actually kind of surprised that Toledo didn't get this over Kent State. Both had 6-6 records but Toledo's schedule looks a bit more impressive including a win over Kent State.

A 10 win, top 25 USU got a bowl like this too.

Everyone who didn’t want the Aggies to play during the SDSU basketball game, I hope you are happy.

Tropical Smoothie has been advertising this bowl game on all their cups. Just had one two days ago and the bowl, date, and channel was on the cup.

Also, of note, this is the only bowl game on ESPN2....uggh.

It doesn’t matter what bowl we would’ve gotten, there would’ve been complaints about the day, time, location, opponent or payout and nobody would’ve paid to go any how. That’s why we are where we are.

The payout doesn't matter at all. USU will not make less money going here than they would going to Boise.

At least it’s an opponent that we can beat. I didn’t want to get throttled by a P5.

The basketball team plays South Florida in Houston 2 days before this game. It's about a 4 hour drive between the 2 but definitely doable.

I am SUPER happy it is December 20th and one of the first bowl games. I did not want to play on January 4th and wait that long. Plus, the players can be done by Christmas and enjoy a stress free Christmas. Also, if it were a later day or 2020 bowl game, most people are tired of bowl games by then, plus the BCS bowls are all done so most people turn to basketball and the NBA. I think being of the first bowl games will actually help with publicity and viewing.

People are so funny. They complain about everything. We got a bowl invite to a new destination. Never been to the Dallas area other than the airport. I would have preferred the Arizona or Armed Forces just because of the date, but I will never complain about a bowl invite. Hell of a lot better than going to Boise in January. Perspective people. I have always wanted to tour the cowboys stadium and now I will be able to take a tour.

Guys this is better than the armed forces bowl. The armed forces bowl was the same day as our home b-ball game against SDSU.
