Got word from the Sun Belt office that, as expected, no bowl invitations will be handed out before Sunday. Since GoDaddy.com and Little Caesars cannot make a move before New Orleans does, this is really a reflection of the Big Easy’s hesitance to embrace either FIU or Troy. As said before this week, the Panthers would be well suited to beat Middle Tennessee Saturday if they don’t want to spend Christmas in Detroit.
Do have some news to pass along, however. Ash Parker – who has returned from two ACL tears – is up for college football’s Rudy Award. The honor goes to Division I football player who demonstrate exemplary CHARACTER, COURAGE, CONTRIBUTION and COMMITMENT as team members. It is to decided by fan voting, and you can cast yours here until Dec. 13.
UPDATE: Should work now, Point.
