    Note: Remember to turn off your recruiting assists and to fix any cpu changed recruiting boards!

    We have advanced to Bowl Season!

    Weave got shafted and Houston went to the C-USA conference champ game instead of UTEP. Not sure what the tiebreaker was.

    In addition, conf champ week was a recruiting dead period so no recruiting to be done.
    (which SCREWED me! as I lost a week of recruiting and have like 7 3-stars still with me at the top but uncommitted....sigh). Oh well...

    onto the show!...

    The Bowl Snubs
    Mormon, Wyoming, 6-6 in the MWC with a win over #23 Nebraska!
    Note: stop playing 2 FCS teams and losing to crappy UNLV squads... terrible.

    Mullen, Bowling Green, 6-6 in the MAC with a win over BCS-bound #20 West Virginia
    Note: did the committees want to avoid controversy by avoiding this shady program and coach?

    Tanner, Tulane, 7-5 in C-USA... biggest win over CUSA champ Houston
    Note: Committee wasn't willing to take 7 CUSA teams. Clearly how one finishes matters.

    The Bowl Invitees
    North Texas (Plague) vs. Western Michigan - Godaddy.com Bowl (or the Bore Me To Death Bowl)
    Note: 6-6 in the Sun Belt. 6 of last 7 wins. But did he beat anybody? Snubbed teams cry foul!

    ULL (Bulldog) vs. Kent State - Little Caesars Pizza Bowl
    Note: 7-5 in the Sun Belt. Big final win over Arizona solidifies bowl-bid. But a rematch? Lame. Can he win?

    UTEP (Weave) vs. Northern Illinois - TicketCity Bowl
    (or the Someone Is About to Get Their Ass Kicked.com Bowl)
    Note: Really? 10-2 gets you a snub in the conf champ game and now a bid to the TicketCity Bowl? Holy Hell! Will UTEP be pissed off? Me-thinks someone (NIU) is about to get their oil checked!

    In regards to mormon's snub- you can only count one DVD win towards bowl eligibility. So he would have needed 7 wins.

    And yes-Houston? How the he'll did that happen? I had the tiebreaker!!! Damn you EA!

    what sucks is I beat Colorado St to get to 6-6 and finished ahead of them in the MWC standings, but they went to a bowl. I guess next time I have two FCS teams on my schedule, ill have to change one of them.
