Ball State is on the Clock

Ball State is expected to make its decision today. That's according to the Idaho Statesman, and that is good news for everyone who wants to know where Maryland will play its bowl game.

And here is my story on the situation in today's paper. Basically, I wrote what I have been saying time and time again on here: It all hinges on what Ball State feels like doing.

in a few hours, I will call -- guess who -- Ball State.

ACC Now blog is reporting that ESPN is reporting that Ball State has agreed to play in Boise. True?

This is absurd. MD is ducking Navy like they always do. Navy has final exams that week too, but are working around it. Same old excuses from Yow and Fridge. Everyone knows a Navy-MD bowl game is the best game for both fan bases at this point. It would be great for the region, and would give the EagleBank Bowl a legit shot at sticking around instead struggling like alot of start-up bowl games do. Give us the matchup we want!!

Ducking Navy? Last I checked, MD won the last game against Navy. And if you're referring to them taking the Champs Sports Bowl over the Meineke Car Care Bowl....sorry that they were good enough to get a better bowl that year.

I don't see why Ball State wouldn't take the game. It's win/win for them and the conference. If they beat Boise in Boise its a banner their conference can carry for years. If they lose, oh well it's a road game. The alternative is go elsewhere where you can beat a 7-5 BCS team, who cares. Or even worse LOSE to a 7-5 BCS team and your conference and undefeated season looks terrible.

win/push vs push/lose. pretty easy decision if you ask me...
