The bigger picture here is really all these bowls discussed are great bowls & highlight how much better the bowl possibilities are in the SEC vs the Big 12. If you are in the top 6 (which is really 7 most years w/ 2 teams usually getting into the BCS) you are playing on Jan 1 or NYE in prime time against an attractive opp. Even their lower bowls put you in Nashville or Memphis. That's 8 great destinations. Their 9th is Birmingham which is the type of town if you haven't been that's a great place to live but not necessarily to visit unless you like golf w/ the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. 10th is Shreveport but really if you're the 10th team you're probably lucky to be bowling to begin w/.
