He mentions that Pitt would be acceptable for the Gator and UConn would not. I find that interesting because Pitt has a horrible record of traveling. It's why many Pitt fans like myself were happy they were selected for the Sun Bowl because that bowl does not require a lot of fans to travel. I would be surprised if Pitt would sell more than 6500 tix to the Gator.

While UConn doesn't have a great record (it's travel reputation is still not known), they did sell out their allotement to the Tire Bowl IIRC (12.5k) but did poorly last year in Toronto. UL sold out its allotment and then some for their trip to the Gator. In addition, don't discount RU. While they are an unknown commodity too, I think they would do better than TTech did they year they were selected for the Gator. JMO about this.

Anyway, the bottom line though - the point about needing ND - is valid. The question is can the BE get away with only offering ND once in 4 years in addition to the 'within 1 win' rule?

I can just imagine a day coming when the only Big East bowls are limited to those near the footprint, and in St. Pete. Ugly situation.
