Updated Bowl Projections and Eligibility

Every Monday, we gather bowl projections from the web and publish them in one list.  Starting next week, we’ll also offer a bowl projection of our own, that will be something that we think you haven’t heard of, and it may seem crazy at first.  But we’ll explain how it happens,and why it’s a possibility.  We encourage you to post any comments that you have, or like us on Facebook and comment there.  Right now we are listing three sets of projections by three leading sports journalists. Beginning next week, we’ll add a fourth, and in November, we’ll have more.  If you like this, subscribe to our blog, or like us on Facebook, and we’ll make it easy for you to stay on top of expert projections.

BOWL ELIGIBILITY FOR THE DUCKS, CARDINALS, HOKIES, HUSKIES, TIGERS, CRIMSON TIDE AND RED RAIDERS  Last week, the Ohio State Buckeyes became the first team to become bowl eligible this season.  This past week, they were joined by Louisville, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Texas Tech, Ball State, Northern Illinois, Oregon, Missouri, Alabama and LSU.

I apologize for being a little late getting these out this week, because I’ve been under the weather.  My little ones have been sick also, and today, the sitters were ill too.  That just reminds me that winter is coming, and it’s time to start thinking about where to spend bowl week. (I’ll be in Orlando, Memphis, and at least two other bowl cities.)   – Dave
