Some drama coming out of Arizona as it seems ESPN might be trying to pluck NMSU for the New Mexico Bowl.

I assume fans want Tucson? I would want Tucson.

RE: Bowl Game Sunbelt Projections
A lot of arrogance from fans of these other conferences that don't want to be matched up with a "lowly sunbelt team". Let's beat their asses and put them in their places. Several North Texas fans were sure they'd get a P5 opponent. What the hell did they do to deserve a P5?

Save the hyperbole for someone else. No one said you guys were a bad football team. I believe if it all played out you'd be #3. Neither one of us would blow you guys out. Back to back losses to UMASS and ULM are perfectly reasonable reasons to rank you guys 3rd. Crushing GSU and Louisiana doesn't change that. Arkansas State beat ULM by 17, you guys lost to them. You both crushed Lousiana and when GSU played Troy they had a similar fate. They were never really a conference title contender. It's nothing personal, it's just numbers. That's all I'm gonna say on it because we've rehashed this a million times.

Surely you remember the North Texas years from the league when they thought they were God's gift to football?

UNT fans are still that way when they have a decent year.

My favorite is that when UNT got picked for NOLA, the CUSA board was filled with UTSA fans going "Thank God its not us playing a lowly Sun Belt Team" 3 hours later, UTSA is officially not playing in a bowl.

Awesome.

UNT doesn't want to play a lowly SBC and Troy doesn't want to play the team that has the least name brand recognition in college football. No one knows who they are for better or for worse. If you can tell me a football program that's more obscure than North Texas, let me know.

RE: Bowl Game Sunbelt Projections
My wife was watching me as I read the bowl assignments. She asked me "whats wrong, are y'all not going to New Orleans?". She knew that I was hoping we would return to the New Orleans Bowl. I said "we're going to New Orleans, but we're playing North Texas". Her response was, "I'm sorry sweetheart".

The whole country just watched freakin FAU destroy them. There zero to gain by thumping north texas state. Good bowl location, crappy bowl opponent.

And you lost to a bad USA team. I believe a healthy App beats Troy. Guess what can’t prove either statement false.

For NMSU nah, any bowl game is awesome. Turns out there was some MWC issues with picking the team. Didn't matter in the end.

Personally, I find the Arizona Bowl the most desirable of the Sun Belt bowls. The timing in the heart of the true "bowl season" is awesome, and it's easier to get time off that week. I also prefer the weather in Tucson vs the weather in Albuquerque at this time of the year.

I'm so glad someone else gets to argue with App fans for the next year.

Naw man I'm done. I'll let them have at it. It's really not that serious. Just my opinions and most of the non app fans on the board.
