What was slated to be the optimal destination for the Big East's 3rd best team, the Sun Bowl announced yesterday that they will not renew their partnership with the Big East Conference after this season. Replacing the Big East No. 3 team will be the ACC's No. 5 Team in the new Sun Bowl contract. Embarassing. Starting in 2010, the Big East No. 3 will travel to the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Charlotte, NC on 26 December to face the ACC's No. 6 team. Hey, at least it's a BCS Conference and not the MAC...
Brian Bennett has more here, including the epic quote below from the Sun Bowl bowl committee folks reppin' El Paso, TX.
"At the end of the day it was based on what overall we thought is best for the people of El Paso," bowl committee chairman John Folmer told the paper. "We haven't seen the ACC in so long, we think it will be good."
When the people of El Paso--the ones that live, work and play Connect 4 within eyesight of the 3rd world city of Juarez, Mexico--don't respect you, it's time to look in the mirror and repeat after me: "I see pride! I see power! I see a bad-ass mother who don't take no crap off of nobody!" ...now let's get out of this bathroom and find some East Germans to punch.
