Up to 15 practices is nothing? A chance to reward players, even if we don't think Nashville or Shreveport is much of a reward? Bowl bonus checks for the coaching staff? Maybe a good performance helps some of our departing players in the draft? Listen, I get it that a large segment of our fans would vote to reject anything less than a Peach/Chick Fil A berth any year, and that this year isn't anything special, but this should be Golden's call and his alone IMO. I don't think he'll run bowl practices like Shannon did, meaning we'll actually take advantage of the extra time rather than just show up and play the game. Take the bid unless it is obvious we get hit with a bowl ban, and none of us have enough information to make that call.Self impose.
Nothing - not ONE thing to be gained going to a bowl this year.
Everything I have seen has been inconsistent. Independence Bowl, Music City Bowl, Military Bowl, etc. Seen us in the Music City against Miss State or Tenn a few times. Would love to end the season with a win against an SEC team.
