    Default New D2 Bowl Game

    Just learned about the Corsicana Bowl game. New bowl game this year that will feature at-large bids between the GAC, LSC and MIAA. This means the GAC has an auto bid to Texarkana and now two bowls (HOT Bowl & Corsicana Bowl) that a GAC team can earn an at-large bid.

    Looks like it is a money-grubbing venture at face value, but hey a bowl game is a bowl game!

    Isn't that essentially what ALL bowl games are?

    Benefit for the teams - additional practice time.

    Well, it is an hour south of Dallas, so there's that, I guess...

    No. The Agent Barry Live United Bowl benefits the United Way. FYI - The United Way's national
    slogan is LIVE UNITED....hence the bowl name. For each of the bowl's first four years, a check
    was presented to the United Way.

    Excellent benefit.

    The extra practice and reps matter, as does the extra media exposure. Nearly every program that goes to a bowl benefits.

    I'm with you here, it's good for everyone involved. The city that hosts it benefits as well. I think more in the future would be a good thing.

    One guy has said it would be interesting if some of these bowl sponsors with some of these minor bowls at d1 wouldnt benefit from having a d2 and d3 game associated with each. Make it a festival like the lsc did for a few years in Dallas.

    In fairness, it's still a money grab. This one just happens to be for a great cause!

    The Corsicana Bowl just put out when they will make the official announcement: https://twitter.com/CorsicanaBowl/st...65466724327426

    They have already indicated teams have been selected. This is a bit unusual given that the last week of games has a bunch of postseason spots on the line--both playoff slots & auto bowl bids--for the GAC, LSC & MIAA. What this tells us is that the teams they have selected aren't going to be ones vying for a PO spot this weekend. Throwing in the auto bid bowls for the GAC, LSC & MIAA into the equation. I think we may be looking at a likely MIAA v GAC matchup.

    Scratch that about both teams not being in PO spot hunt: https://twitter.com/CorsicanaBowl/st...77293143248896
    Still believe we are looking at a likely MIAA v GAC matchup. Either way, we will know soon after the PO announcements.

    Hmmm... very unusual... but i guess they need to work out the kinks!! I kinda figured they'd wait to see the results for saturdays game!! Either way, hopefully it'll be a good game!!

    Hmmm... Wondering if its HU.. Somebody will probably be on the bubble as far as POs are concerned!! Either way, I have a co-worker who is a major MIAA supporter, went to Pitt State, so somewhere along the line, I can hope for a Pitt State, SAU matchup in the postseason.. lol

    Reading between the lines the only possibilities I see right now, before games are played, are HU and SAU...both are impacted by the PO announcements (recall SAU has an outside shot at Texarkana). Granted, I think HU is the more likely team in this bowl bid discussion. Don't lose hope Bandguy, I know the GAC was also talking to the HOT Bowl this week.

    I'm thinking if there is an MIAA team the likely candidate is UCO.
