What are you Cat fans thoughts?
What's a Belk?
I expect it’s a critter looks something like this?
Better then not playing in a bowl and having a losing season.go cats!
I wonder if Kiffen at Ole Miss will hire Eddie Gran , who was one of Kiffen's first hires at UT. Many UK fans would not be opposed to that I suspect, as he sees to be the lightning rod of blame on UK's losses.
"Meh" on the both the bowl and the opponent. My excitement about it dropped from like a 9 to a 2 when I saw they didn't get Indiana in a bowl like I was pulling for and was first reported.
Unless something spectacular happens in the game, a year or so later, everyone is going to have forgotten about it. But if we played Indiana, win or lose, it would've been remembered.
Most people have already forgotten it ... Wait ,what was we talking about ??
Do you think that Gran will get Kiffens old Job at Florida Atlantic
It was out of their hands, the loss to UT gave them the choice of bowls so they chose the Gator Bowl Pretty simple, handle your business during the season and you have more control.
The first bowl they were place was against Indiana then it was flipped to the Belk bowl at Charlotte against Virginia tech. Why did this happen
Listening to KSR radio show and they stated the Belk bowl pays the school over a million dollar more. I was surprised by that. Gator was I think $3 million or so and Belk was $4 million
Couple of things....First, the athletic department gets to subtract expenses from the $4MM. This allows them to send a ton of people to the game - all expenses paid. Most of the time, very little is actually left over. Second, any that is left over is shared with the SEC and the SEC divides up the money and splits it among the member universities. Now some of the bowl games pay a huge amount to the SEC schools that participate, but I've never seen a report that shows how much - if any - gets shared by the schools back to the SEC.
Finally, most major bowls require that participating schools sell a certain amount of tickets. Not sure how many you have to sell as a participant in the Belk bowl, but if you don't sell all you are supposed to, the school has to pay the bowl a penalty for each ticket not sold. So, for example, if a school is required to sell 20,000 tickets and they only sell 10,000, and the penalty is $50/ticket, the school would owe the Belk bowl $500,000.
IMHO, both bowls screwed-up. KY - IN would have been a big time game and would have sold out. Not sure TN - IN will be as big a draw. And I believe TN - VA Tech would have been a bigger draw - in Charlotte - than UK - VA Tech.
Agree Indiana-Ky would be better game. All those expenses you stated and shares of money would be basically the same for either game. That don’t change the extra million or so for the Belk bowl game pays compared to Gator bowl
Tenn had finished higher in the SEC east and had beaten Ky regular season and had first choice. Tenn with first choice took Gator/Taxslayer bowl. Ky took next one down in priority which was Belk. DO all the $ math you want but thats the way it worked.
