    I'm pissed about the bowl. The ACC should have a merit based system for bowl selection involving records and tiebreakers. Maybe let higher ranked teams opt for lower bowls to help optimize location.

    But did TStan ever have any power to affect the selection? Honest question. My understanding is that the bowls select whoever they want as long as teams aren't jumped by others with 2 extra losses. If there is some official lobbying process where we try to sell ourselves to the bowls then I'm unaware of it. Anyone have any insights?

    My thoughts:
    1. The bowl destination sucks
    2. Go anyway
    3. Buy your ticket through GT

    Otherwise we are exactly who Belk claims we are to justify their öööö.

    Belk shouldn’t be allowed to have a bowl with an ACC tie-in if they aren’t going to consider 3/4 of the conference. It’s horseshit.

    F the bowls.

    If they didn’t have forced ticket support from the schools stuck going to these games, most of them would die off. Would anyone other than degenerate gamblers really care if the # of bowls was chopped in half?

    @GTAthletics and @GeorgiaTechFB knows that they dropped the ball. Other teams and programs are tweeting out their bowl announcements and there is nothing but crickets from our administration until about 30 minutes after it is announced. I don't blame Coach Paul Johnson for retiring from this crap.

    Swofford and the ACC got tired of Paul calling them out for the crappy scheduling. This is payback pure and simple. Swofford a UNC guy right? This conference is a ******* joke.

    Does a one legged duck swim in a circle?

    The answer is yes, unless it knowns the J Stroke.

    Thanks ADTS. Hope you enjoyed the FBS process. Hope you have more time to devote to selecting an outstanding HC.

    THWG.

    Did Belk, the sponsor, reject us? Or was it the Belk Bowl staff? Why are we boycotting Belk's?

    So that companies learn not to spend their advertising budgets on shady bowl games that select teams without considering earned football results.
