More Fallout from the Meineke Bowl Deal
GoMids.com is really having a field day with this story, and why shouldn't they? After 3 consecutive winning seasons, this deal does much to cement the return of Navy football as a winning program. Kevin Kinder of the Scout.com West Virignia staff wrote in an article that the deal was yet another serious blow to a conference that has been struggling to find it's place in the BCS world. Then came another story from GoMids.com, this one by the entire staff predicting a Navy matchup with Boston College in next year's Meineke Car Care Bowl. (On a side not, I really love how GoMids does these predication things, they make the off-season go by so much faster). The scenario calls for a 21-20 Navy victory while pulling a "New Mexico" at the end and with Reggie Campbell once again winning the Game MVP. Nice story, but I'm not so sure we get Boston College In the Bowl Game, and of course first we have to become Bowl-eligible. Remember, this team hasn't done anything yet. It seems rather absurd at this point to even talk BCS, but I guess nobody wants to leave any possabilites out.
