Early in the year no one thought we would be seeing a post like this. A lot of us laughed at the idea of 6 wins. Bowl game…pffft, we will probably get squat or at best the BBVA Compass Bowl (aka Football game in a slum bowl) or something crappy like that.
On a side note it is a shame about Legion Field. I hear it is really a run down dump now. I have fond memories of going to Iron Bowls with my Dad. We stayed at the Tutwiler, ate at Petes Famous Hot Dogs, and rode the bus to the game. Good times indeed. Sorry for the straying off topic, I couldn’t resist.
Well, that was a few months ago, now we are discussing whether or not we are going to the BIG GAME against Oregon or Fla St. or the like. Unbelievable is an understatement. I truly agree it will be the longest of long shots if we do make it there but that brings on another question. If not to the BCS natty game, where are we going?
I have seen projections and guesses from the pundits and TET members including but not limited to the Sugar, Capital One, Outback, Gator, Cotton, and the Big Daddy in Pasadena. Stewart Mandel of SI.com has us in the Sugar Bowl against UCF.
Now is the time to get tickets at a reasonable price since the participants of most bowls are in the same mode we are. Lots of questions. If you pick right you have saved some serious dinero and have a great choice of places to stay. If you are wrong, you have to scramble to dump tickets and hope your motel cancellation fee is not too hefty. That being said, where do you think we are going and how much of a gambler are you to pull the trigger early?
Personally, I am pretty close to going the Sugar Bowl route. Tickets do not require a second mortgage right now and since Mrs. myauburn and I are RVers, I have found a very nice RV park less than 20 minutes from the Superdome. Not to mention she loves the Big Easy.
How about some suggestions on our destination? Do I go for it or wait? Am I nuts for even thinking about this right now? Am I just nuts? (on second thought, don’t answer that one). Where do you think our bowl destination will be and why do you think so? Convince me where to plunk down my money. Another way to look at this is it will give me someone else to blame if I pick wrong.
