After reading many of your website I staleness say i launch this fact one to mostly be top notch. I soul a weblog also and require to re post a few shears of your articles on my own diary site. Should it be alright if I use this as eternal I own testimonial your website
Longtime national sportswriter Mark Blaudschun is reporting on his own blog that Houston — not Arlington, not New Orleans, not Atlanta — has offered up the biggest pile of cash for the right to host the SEC/Big XII’s new “Champions” Bowl.
Unfortunately, there are still a lot more unknowns than knowns when it comes to the leagues’ new game, which will kick off at the end of the 2014 season. Will the game be played in one city each year taking on the name of that city’s bowl? Will the “Champions” Bowl rotate between cities as was once expected when the game was first announced pre-playoffs. Now with a playoff on the horizon, will there be a way to lock in a bowl rotation for the “Champions” Bowl inside the overall rotation of games hosting the semifinals and finals?
Blaudschun cites “source familiar with the bidding process” as saying that Houston, Dallas (Arlington), and New Orleans made the three highest bids overall. Atlanta and San Antonio had also planned to put in bids, but — apparently — their bids were lower. At least according to Blaudschun.
As we’ve stated before, until the details of the playoff are worked out, it’s going to be difficult for the SEC and Big XII to move forward with their own plans for the “Champions” Bowl. And either way, the new set-up will wind up being more convoluted and confusing for fans than the old BCS means of selecting teams and games.
