Bowling never felt so ... unclear

Hey everyone. I have returned from a post-Iron sabbatical of sorts. Thanks for sticking with the HABOTN for at least a portion of your Auburn jones.

So where will Auburn be playing this holiday season?

I have no idea. We usually have a feel for this sort of thing by now. The Southeastern Conference had six teams finish the regular season at 7-5. That makes things difficult on working stiffs like us. The bowls have their behind-the-scenes deals going, but they don't like discussing that publicly unless a car battery and jumper cables are involved.

So we'll just formulate our own truth.

FIRST VERSION
BCS Title Game: Alabama/Florida
BCS Game: Alabama/Florida
Capital One Bowl: LSU
Cotton Bowl: Tennessee
Outback Bowl: Georgia
Chick-fil-A Bowl: Ole Miss
Music City Bowl: Kentucky
Liberty Bowl: Arkansas
Independence Bowl: Auburn
Papajohns.com Bowl: South Carolina

SECOND VERSION (released @ 12:25 p.m.)
BCS Title Game: Alabama/Florida
BCS Game: Alabama/Florida
Capital One Bowl: LSU
Cotton Bowl: Ole Miss
Outback Bowl: Auburn
Chick-fil-A Bowl: Tennessee
Music City Bowl: Georgia
Liberty Bowl: Arkansas
Independence Bowl: South Carolina
Papajohns.com Bowl: Kentucky

What do you think about that?

OF NOTE: Auburn's offense, its apparent revival and its work against Alabama last week has created a buzz that is difficult to quantify. Some bowls may find that supremely alluring. Others may not care.

I wanted to go my entire career without a trip to Shreveport.

The SEC/Shreveport relationship ends after this season.

I can feel the pimp hand of destiny raring back for a slap.

8:22 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

Yeah, Atlanta is my choice also--30 minutes from the house!!! Only way that happens is if Tech loses. I don't think they'd go with a Tech/UGAy rematch.

Nashville is a close 2nd.

I'd rather drop to the Pizza Bowl than the Independence...

If it's not Atlanta, I won't be making a bowl trip this year. But please, y'all go. Really. I want you to. Don't stay home on my behalf. I'll be fine.

I remember the blizzard in Shreveport when Miss St. played. They wore all white, including helmets, and you almost couldn't see them against the white field.
Like Boise St in negative film.

8:25 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I won't be going to any bowls this year regardless.

Do they give away weedeaters at the Shreveport bowl?

8:26 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I made a few changes.

I doubt the Cotton wants Ole Miss for a second consecutive season. Auburn has allure because of its offense and the way it played against Alabama ... so maybe I'm wrong.

I wouldn't be upset.

8:26 AM  
Blogger JD the Biscuithata said...

Not only did Ole Miss lose to State, they have 2 wins against D2 opponents and I thought only one of those should count towards their bowl records. Wouldn't that make the 7-4 as far as bowling is concerned?

8:27 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

JD, not so much. Their record is what it is. That only matters towards eligibility.

8:28 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Is 7-4 better than 7-5?

8:28 AM

I'd be surprised if Kentucky went to the Music City Bowl. I think USC win over Clemson gets them the nod, but I can buy the rest.

8:29 AM

We'd bring a better crowd and a better team to Atl than Ole Miss. Somebody get me Truett Cathy on the phone, I've got a pitch to make.

Blogger Sean said...

Shreveport is the only bowl I probably can't make.

Which means that's where Auburn will end up.

8:30 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

If the teams have the same record, the bowls truly have their pick. There's no obligation.

So I'm sure they're all talking and negotiating and hashing it out on the telephone line.

Auburn's travel reputation is ... perhaps a tick above average.

It's not beyond that.

Traveling matters this time of year.

8:32 AM  
Blogger Jet Jetson said...

If it helps make a decision based on travel potential, I'm not going to a bowl west of the longitude Alabama-Mississippi state line or south of the 31st parallel (Alabama-Florida stateline).

Does this help?

8:34 AM  
Blogger JD the Biscuithata said...

I would rank the teams as follows...

UT, UGAy, and OM would get the inital nod due to 4-4 confrence records.

of the next tier:
S Carolina
Auburn
Arky

It's about time! Hope you enjoyed your time off, we all need that.
I keep hoping for the Music City Bowl I haven't made that Bowl and would really like to go there. I said yesterday that Shreveport is out but I may change my mind on that.

Agreed, Eddie. Gaining the Gator Bowl and losing Independence is like trading that 72 Pinto for a brand new Sonata...

Shreveport- Never hope to travel there again. DUMP, especially being stuck there for almost a week.

What Bowl games as everyone been too?

As for Me:

SEC lost the Gator bowl to start with. I went to my first Bowl there in 1954 Auburn vs Texas Tech. enjoyed the trip but not the game. TT 35 AU 14

8:45 AM  
Blogger JD the Biscuithata said...

I wouldn't quite put the Gator Bowl on par with Nisssan. I was initally thinking equating it with a carolla but due to the long time relationship with the Gator Bowl and Toyota.

My best friend bought a Murano. Why, I'll never understand. They needed space and got none, but hey, he loves the blue tooth feature.

Sugar, Citrus, Hall of Fame, Peach, and Gator.

JD- I say a Toyota Camry is appropriate. Nothing sleek or stylish, but you ride in comfort.

It's bigger than a Corolla. Maybe Camry. Nice, dependable, spacy, recognizeable, but nothing really oustanding or flashy.

The SEC dropping the Independence Bowl for the Gator Bowl is like trading in a 72 Pinto for a brand new Camry straight up .

Music City-twice.

Citrus Bowl-once.

does the Senior Bowl count? been there 7-8 times. :)

8:54 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

That'd be tough not to try and do Eddie. Just a matter of cost to get there, and how much Jerrah would charge for the tickets. But you know they're going to try and get two teams that would get that stadium filled close to capacity. Not sure if that would leave us out of that race.

Most of the projections I have seen are Au to Independence... Though I have seen Cotton, Outback, Peach & even Capital One on somes list.

Blogger Eddie said...

Actually, I don't believe the Outback Bowl has to wait if all the other bowls have passed on us meaning the Capitol One and Cotton. I could be wrong, but I believe they can announce their matchup. Also, think about it, if they can, they get more press by announcing it before Sunday than on Sunday when the majority of the Bowls are announced.

Looks to me like they can't really decide until Saturday. Everything hinges on the Atlanta game, and they can't make a decision until they know if they have GaTech or Clemson. Unless they are passing over GA; then I guess they could go ahead.

Outback chooses before the Peach Coosa.

9:36 AM

Ah, guess I am wrong. Outback is fine with me, but the only would I would go to would be the pizza. I would drive an hour to see this team play again, but not 10 hours.

9:38 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

The Chick-Fil-A bowl has nothing to do with the Outback Bowl. The Outback Bowl has a higher seeding and gets to pick before the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. Also, I noticed that an UT article last night said the Outback Bowl announcement could be made official today, so I guess it is possible to make the announcement early.

Also, rumors have UT falling to either Music City or Liberty Bowl. Ouch.

9:39 AM

The only problem with a Big 11 team is that I worry about our D wearing down while pushing the big bodies for an entire game. On the other hand, our offense would probably get so far ahead early in the game that it wouldn't matter.

Take a look at who CBS now projects in the Outback Bowl....

11:34 AM

stupup- Agreed. Very nice change.

Eddie, if you worked for TMZ i bet we'd have the scoop on Tiger Woods by now! ;)

Is it mandatory that we play Wisconsin in Big 10+1 matchups? it must be

11:41 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Nice job, Eddie. I'd rather AU play Iowa or PSU, than Wisconsin, though.

11:41 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Yeah man...I'm all over it.

Tiger Woods is pretty easy to see what happened, now why it happened, that's the question. Wife thinks Husband is cheating, claws him and scares him off and busts out a window with a rarely used 2-iron distracting Woods who then hits a fire hydrant and tree. Before cops get there, she threatens to show Tiger her golf swing on his forehead if he doesn't play dumb and act like it wasn't his fault. :)

Actually, I hope that the Tiger Woods thing is not what everybody thinks it is. I really really like the guy. He is one of my heroes and I was lucky to get to spend a week getting to know him. Great guy.

I have read that Auburn is likely in the running for 3 bowls: Music City, Independence, & Pizza. From what I have read the most likely may be the Pizza Bowl. That is about as exciting as...wait, that isn't exciting at all. But I also seen someone theorize we could play Notre Dame in the pizza bowl, which would make it a bit more interesting.

Steve must have just woken up

11:47 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

You guys are right. It's almost like Eddie should start a blog and call it the Auburn Football Insider. He could then post stuff there frequently and keep us all updated on all things Auburn football.

Wait...

11:48 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Steve- You are reading yesterday's news my friend.

11:49 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Yeah...that blog thing is hard to do when you put all your thoughts on here for the most part.

11:49 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

Steve, that was extremely possible prior to this morning...this Outback deal has legs though. The Outback is a nice surprise if/when we get a confirmation. Outback Bowl is saying on their Facebook site that they will announce something today--that lends even more credence to the sudden surge in rumors today about AU being the pick.

I have to think there's too much smoke to be no fire.

Hope Auburn does get the Outback invite.

Also order the bloomin onion when you go..

11:54 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

So...what's the guess here?

Dunlap to play or not Saturday?

I think he plays.

11:55 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

What all do we know about the incident Faker?

I thought I read somewhere that he wasn't even driving when the police found him.

If that's the case, I think he might still get suspended for a quarter or a half for violation of curfew.

11:59 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Y'all know a damn fine coach that probably doesn't get near the credit he deserves?

Mike Riley. Overcoming the Bama stigma and all.

12:01 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

He wasn't driving....technically.

He was passed out at an intersection behind the wheel of the car in drive and his foot on the brake.

Cops saw him not move from the intersection for two or three consecutive light changes before they approached the car according to what was reported by an Sports Illustrated guy on the OD this morning.

12:03 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Kind of like a guy choking his girlfriend and the girls dad yelling Roll Tide.

Urban Meyer / Nick Saban...two peas in a pod. The guy probably won't miss any game time.

12:04 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Mike Riley would be the Bama coach right now if it weren't for is wife.

He accepted the job when Fran bolted but turned it down after his wife decided she didn't want to move away from the West Coast.

12:04 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Meyer may call Saban and give him an out if one of his players gets in trouble this week. It all evens out they will say.

12:06 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Unconfirmed reports stating that Outback Bowl is done deal now, announcement to come shortly. Stay tuned.

12:06 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Faker, it is nice to see you revealed yourself as a closet Auburn fan.

As for the Outback, I am very excited. It is far superior to any bowl I thought would could get.

As for an opponent, I am all for Iowa. Should we get Iowa, there is the distinct likelihood that it would add more cornpones to this site, which I miss.

As for the oh no, the idea of Shreveport against Iowa Sate would be the most depressing. That is one invite I hope we would turn down. It is like the evil empire playing LaMo. What could good could come of it.

12:08 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Don't believe he would have done a bad job at Bama given enough time.

12:10 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Seems like Blogger is still recovering from that epic 1,300 comment post.

12:13 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I just saw a rumor that the opponent in the Outback will be Northwestern.

12:14 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Should Auburn get the Outback, I think is says a lot about the perception of the job that Chiz Co has done. It should also impress recruits even more than a trip to the Pizza bowl.

I think Florida has hypnotic redlights. Remeber when the Cardinals skipper had that happen during spring trining a couple of seasons ago?

Northwestern wouldn't exactly excite me, but beating up on a Big 10 opponent is never a bad thing.

Newsflash: Recruits are more impressed by a New Years bowl than the weedeater bowl.

Now i have to convince my wife that she''l be fine on new year's on her own while I go to Tampa. (she has to work)

12:20 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Bryan Mathews of Rivals just stated that if the BCS places holds on Alabama and Florida as expected, then we are locked up for Outback. Conference call with BCS right now and should now something official within 1-3 hours.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

FLIP!!!

What a way to spend New Year's--in the Tampa sun!!!

Gotta hope Iowa slips to the Outback to face us...that'd be a huge momentum builder--beating a top 10 team!

WDE!

12:20 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

What does Tampa have that Shrevport doesn't?

Besides running water and electricity.

12:21 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Wasn't it Crosby, Stills, & Nash that had that sound "...by the time we got to Shreveport, we were half a million strong...", so there is support for Shreveport out there.

12:21 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

There's no way that Bama and Florida don't both hold on to their BCS bowls.

12:22 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Bama and Florida should be locks for BCS bowls, so this sounds very encouraging.
