There is only one Tier 1 bowl at present--the bowl where the championship game
is played. The BCS bowls are all Tier 2. Any bowl outside of the
aforementioned bowls is really a tier III bowl. Who really cares. Enjoy the
games and watch them all. I just can't wait for the season to begin.
Spokane Ute:"I would like to see the PAC 12 and SEC have some bowl tie
ins. They just don't get to play each other very often. Now Utah needs to
go out and win, to reap the benifit of these bowl slots/games!"The SEC and Big 12 have locked up many of their conferences respective tie
ins...along with occasionally the ACC/B1G. I would like to see more UGA games
against the PAC12 like the home and home they had with ASU (which i
attended...great game watching my dawgs beat the sundevils lol). I agree,
hopefully we could see more match ups between those conferences, but right now
it seems the SEC is more interested in Big 12 and B1G matchups.
Duckhunter:I LOVE breaking it to you that it DOES matter! Now I
understand that as an Indy-WACer, you wouldn't know anything about
"multi-million dollar bowl games", but the truth is, the bowl games that
feature BCS teams pay more. And the higher up a team finishes in their
comference, the more prestigious the bowl game.Go back and check how
much money those bowl games pay out when one team is the 4th place team in the
Pac-12.Or you bury your head in the sand and pretend you
couldn't be more pleased that the Indy-WACers finally inked a deal with a
3rd-tier bowl game that nowbody will be watching. "LOL!"
I hate to break it to you naval but it doesn't make it relevant in anyway.
The 4th place teams from those 2 conferences are seldom ranked, and even more
seldom are both of them ranked. They are 4th place teams, by definition
mediocre, just like utah was a couple of years ago when it played its bowl game
in America's armpit against an unranked 4th place ACC team. No one cared
and no one outside of the "fans" of the teams playing in it in the
future will really care.Now there will be people that watch it, just
like every bowl, I watch almost all of them, but I don't really care about
any of the individual teams playing in them, I just like to watch bowl games.
But relevant? LOL!I checked the AP rankings for the last 3 years.
Not once was the pac12 4th place team ranked, the big 10's 4th place team
was ranked twice out of the 3, so of course not once would the 4th place matchup
between those leagues produce a matchup of ranked teams and one year neither
team was ranked. So much for "relevance".LOL!
Duckhunter:"The irony of you now acting as if the KFH means
something is delicious."Where's the irony. Being the bowl
game that gets the 4th pick from the Pac-12 DOES make it a relevant bowl. By
the time the KFH Bowl drops the Indy-WACers and picks up the BigTen, this bowl
will upstage the Sun.At it's CURRENT station, selecting from
the #6 spot, I'm not acting it suddently means something. It's
currently rated lower than the Las Vegas...which really isn't a
"big" bowl game.Did you even read the article, or were you
just acting out all frantic and emotionally?
@DuckhunterWill you be "acting like the KFH means something"
this year if the Cougars qualify to participate before being booted for the
@naval lintThe irony of you now acting as if the KFH means something
is delicious. I expected,and enjoy, the "frantic and emotional" response
on your part.LOL!
Duckhunter:Up through now, the Sun Bowl had the 4th pick, and that
didn't stop us from going there, so that was an epic fail on your part.
ESPECIALLY considering that between our 2 programs, the ONLY team who will have
absolutely no shot at the KFH Bowl beyond 2013 would be......the
Indy-WACers!!! Because you've been pushed aside. The BigTen is IN; the
Indy-WACers are OUT!Haha!
That the "Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Bowl" as so many utah "fans"
like to call it, will now be taking the 4th place pac12 team eliminates all
chance of utah ever appearing in it. LOL!
@ Ed GradyYeah, especially considering that they have only been to a
bowl 9 out of the last 10 years.
So best case scenario for byu's season is playing the fifth best PAC 12
team?Lol. I hope we personally end your season, like we
did last yearLol!Long live the bcs conferences!
Interesting. Even more bowls the utes will be ineligible to play in.
Um, if BYU had stayed in the MWC and won they would have played a PAC12 team in
the Vegas bowl. So, what?
Great news! Both the Holiday Bowl and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowls will be
significantly upgraded in 2014! And to have the PAC-12 and Big Ten conferences
locked in for 6 years! This will raise their status in the bowl hierarchy and
with it will come greater payouts. This plus the desirable locations of San
Diego and San Francisco are ideal for Utah fans. Also the 6 year tie-in to the
Sun Bowl coupled with the rumored replacement of the New Mexico Bowl with the
Buffalo Wild Wing Bowl completes an unbelievable package! Go PAC-12; Go Utes
Nice to have tie in's in place. I would like to see the PAC 12 and SEC have
some bowl tie ins. They just don't get to play each other very often. Now
Utah needs to go out and win, to reap the benifit of these bowl slots/games!
Congratulations to the PAC 12 and the Big Ten.The plans for the new
49er stadium are amazing.
Chris B, keep it cool my friend. This is good, let it be at that. No need to
rub this in, it speaks for itself.GO UTES!!
