Humanitarian Bowl News Release Forthcoming

As I reported two hours ago, Rick Chryst, commissioner of the Mid-American Conference, told me that Boise State-Ball State will not be played. And a Ball State official told me the Cardinals would play in a MAC bowl game. That clears the way for a Maryland berth in the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho, on Dec. 30. The opponent would probably be Nevada, because undefeated Boise State is likely to take a more appealing matchup with Texas Christian in San Diego.

Kevin McDonald, the executive director of the Humanitarian Bowl, told me a short time ago that a news release will arrive in my inbox in less than an hour. He is in a meeting right now working everything out. Whether the release says Ball State has passed or whether it announces the H-bowl matchup is anyone's guess at this point. But we are moving closer to a resolution, and that's good, because I need to hit the road for Michigan-Maryland.

"...undefeated Boise State is likely to take a more *appealing matchup with Texas Christian* in San Diego."

I know the Terps gagged their last two games but this is how low Maryland football has come if Texas Christian is more appealing than a team that beat four teams in the top 25 this season.

We loved for UMD to go to Bowl Games, but after last year, I want an East Coast Bowl. Boise on December 30th is not my idea of a Bowl Game. Charlotte, Nashville, Orlando or Washington, D. C. A D. C. Bowl would save money for fans, the team, everyone and it would be fun to play Navy again. Anywhere on the East Coast, but not another expensive trip west!!!!!
