Bowl Eligible in 2015

While unlikely, it could happen, and here’s why:

[font=Times New Roman][size=medium]Up next are FCS teams making the transition to the FBS, if they have at least a 6-6 record. Big winners under that rule: South Alabama, Texas-San Antonio, Texas State and UMass, who are all in the process of reclassifying from FCS to FBS. Suddenly and bizarrely, South Alabama’s Aug. 30 opener against Texas-San Antonio in Mobile carries some potential bowl significance.[/size][/font]

Basically, we need more teams to get busted cheating.

Sweet, if that happens it can only help recruiting.

I would be estatic if we could somehow pull that off. I see us struggling alot with the jump.

I wonder what bowl tie-in games CUSA will have after this season when SMU, Houston, UCF, and Memphis leave?

Let in 5-7 teams? That’s BS. There are too many bowls. It’s bad enough to have 6-6, but no 5-7 team should ever make it. If a 5-7 team is Conf. Champ, then your Conf. sucks & shouldn’t get any bids that year.
I did Christmas Eve in Hawaii when the B-Ball was there. I’ll do it again for FB.

Ha ha, my thoughts pre us going FBS I totally agreed with you SCK

my thoughts in 2015, there aren’t too many bowls, send us the paycheck if we make it to 6-6!!

I don’t want the Niners first bowl appearance to be off a 5-7 or even a 6-6. Plus you lose money on most bowls because the U would have to buy and resale their allotment of tickets. Let’s wait till its earned.

We are bowl eligible every year. Hopefully we won’t have to go the virtual bowl route though. 8)

Can we get an FCS playoff invite in Year 1?

No and not in year two either. Too many DII and DIII teams on our schedule to qualify. Plus once we announced the FBS move in 2015, 2013 and 14 became transistion years where we wouldn’t have qualified for the FCS playoff anyway.
