Thread: Could Wake go to a Bowl with a 5-7 record?

  1. #1

    Could Wake go to a Bowl with a 5-7 record?

    Jerry Palm says yes:

    http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...-palm/21054930

    "Finally, in my projection, this is also good for Wake Forest -- the Demon Deacons now find themselves in a bowl with a projected 5-7 record. Teams with 5-7 records are the last category for fill-in teams, and they get selected in APR order. Among teams with potential 5-7 records, Wake is second in APR behind Rice, which is already in my bowl projections."

    If this were to happen, the only mention WF will get during bowl season is as exhibit A for how there are too many bowls.

    Oh my, going to a bowl with a 5-7 record and playing La Tech who scores points like crazy, sounds like my kind of party!!! Seriously, if we get in a bowl this way, I'll watch and pull hard for us as always, but there is no reason under the sun a losing team should get in a bowl game. It's bad enough 6-6 teams go to bowl games.

    Haha yes please. Can't you just see our AD spinning this for to help with next year's season ticket sales?

    Would we become the first team to ever go 5-8 in college football?

    I want none of that. We've already been embarrassed three times on national TV this season.

    Why not go for four?
    We're going to be good again.

    I hope we would turn down the offer at 5-7, but we wouldn't do it.

    Wow. The bowl system has completely jumped the shark if a sub-.500 team can get in to one.
    Football. Bloody Hell.

    How can you have a losing record and go to a bowl game? That's just not right.

    God. And next year people will say Grobe's done a good job because he gets us to bowl games.
