News came forth this week about a bowl to be sited in Albuquerque, proposing a MWC v WAC matchup.

http://www.abqtrib.com/albq/sp_lobos/article/0,2564,ALBQ_19873_4475440,00.html

Meanwhile, I didn't know that the NCAA eliminated minimum payouts as a condition for certifying bowl games. Raises a flag or two in my head.

Pounder:

I can't open the site. I get an empty page. Maybe you can repost it again when you get a chance.

CK,

You have to copy and past the whole line (upto the .hmtl) into your browser.

I think this site cuts off 'links' that are too long and leaves on the first 'line' as a link.

I will try to also paste the link here but it will be cut off like it was for Pounder. Same think happend before with Blackgold when he would try to post certain links.

Edit: Didn't work. The site cuts off after the link becomes longer than one line. 'BQ_19873_4475440,00.html' shows up on the second line.

This is pure speculation on my part, but I would propose a bowl game in the domed stadium in St. Louis. Match the Big 12 vs. Big Ten in some fashion (maybe just move the Insight Bowl there from Tempe, no reason for the #6 choice from each conference to travel that far west of the conference).

Read here http://collegesportsinfo/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1315 for info on a Miami Bowl proposal.

If the MAC loses its tie-in with the GMAC Bowl, they could start a bowl game in the Metrodome with the Big Ten. It would be called the Land O'Lakes Bowl, as Land O'Lakes, HQ'ed in nearby Arden Hills, would purchase exclusive naming rights to the bowl.

To replace the namesake bowl game, the Cotton Bowl Stadium could get a December bowl game, with exclusive naming rights bought by Dr. Pepper. The aptly-titled Dr. Pepper Bowl would feature a Big 12 team and either SMU, TCU, North Texas, or any other CUSA or Sun Belt team.

A bowl game in Seattle (with a Pac-10 tie-in) can only survive if naming rights are bought by a Seattle-based company. So I propose Nintendo buy the naming rights and name it the Pokemon.com Bowl. It would air on Cartoon Network (with TBS sports graphics, except that the CN logo replaces the TBS logo).
