Bowl Talk, Part II
I have another story about bowl possibilities in today’s paper. Who would be excited about Maryland-West Virginia?
After talking to a variety of people, here is what I believe now:
If Maryland wins, Nashville and Charlotte are the favorites.
If Maryland loses, Charlotte remains a favorite, but Boise emerges as a strong possibility if Clemson beats South Carolina. If Clemson becomes bowl eligible, the Tigers would be an attractive pick for several bowls, perhaps even the Gator Bowl. That would not be good for Maryland, especially if Maryland is coming off two straight losses to close the regular season.
So Maryland fans should root hard for South Carolina if you don’t want to see the Terps in Boise.
Charlotte seems like the favorite right now because it is within driving distance and because I believe Maryland could likely sell the most tickets for that game.
Miami is a real wild card in all this. The fact that a Florida newspaper reports that Miami could be headed to Orlando with a win should not be taken as good news for the Terrapins.
We’ll see, all this may change after Saturday.
