Hopefully you guys will be scheduled against teams like you played against all year. You know the bottom. That way you can win your bowl game....

Sorry we forgot about all of your quality wins that make you a much better team than us. RPI has us at 69th in the nation while you are at 76th. We lost the same amount of games as you did but played two P5 teams. We are the 38th best defense statistically in the nation vs. you being 56th. We are the 34th best offense in the nation while you are 11th. You win offense, we win defense. We are also 2-0 in bowl games since we joined vs. you being 1-1. We are similar programs but in no way can you outright say we need to play easy teams to win or that your team is better than ours. NCAA statistics, the products on the field, and the fact that we are 1-1 head to head since joining the conference all back that up.

What's your point. Lol someone called me salty.

Troy earned the right to go to NO. Better overall record, an OOC conference win v. FBS teams. We have no complaint.

We need to send a team who can kick the crap out of the CUSA rep in New Orleans. We might can leapfrog in the conference standings like we did last season. CUSA honestly isn't that much better than we are.

Way closer too. I'm disappointed we aren't in New Orleans but ultimately it's the right choice for the bowl. Way easier to accept then getting it than Louisiana last year. I just wish we could get a tie in with a bowl closer to us.

Closest tie in is 14 hours to us.... Imagine being Buffalo or NIU? Not 1 regional bowl.

Not true. A-State did not ask to not be picked. Only place we didn't want to go was Tucson. Now it is true Mobile was third in pre-sales.

But we knew we were likely going to Montgomery weeks ago which is why the bowl projections on AState Nation have reflected A-State to Montgomery since early November.

Win or lose A-State wasn't going to Mobile. They were taking Troy or App no matter what.

RE: Bowl Selections
When everyone gets done with the pissing contest and wants to talk football give me a holler.

In the meantime.
HATE the Troy- UNT match-up. UNT offense very similar to A-State's and unlikely to make five trips inside the 30 without scoring.
App against presumed Toledo. Going to be physical. Winnable for App
AState against presumed Akron. Please dear lord let this match-up happen. Akron brings zip heat (get it Zip) on defense. Hansen will get little pressure and probably have time to make a sandwich. Perfect opponent for A-State.
Georgia State against presumed MTSU. Panthers just got to get their dobbers up.
NMSU against presumed USU. Nice match for NMSU. Might be the best match up for NMSU of possible MWC.

I honestly think Troy would beat UNT by 2 touchdowns. FAU IMO is the only of those teams that can play with the likes of App, StAte, and Troy.

Thank you. This notion of hurt feelings about who goes where is pointless...be grateful you team is going somewhere in the postseason.

Heard that. I'm going to keep saying Akron and hope to will that into existence.

Panthers will face Western Kentucky in Cure Bowl

Don't know anything about WKU. Anyone have a scouting report on them?
