JAX would draw more than Nashville. Gator Bowl is better than Music City Bowl. More transplants within 4 hours of JAX than BNA

Fenway is going to blow weatherwise about 75% of the time. Anytime Cuse is at 6 wins...we are going to own that game. I rather the ACC and AAC hook up in Myrtle Beach Bowl.
But this is a double up on Jax right? We already have the Gator, which yes, is a far superior bowl to many.

The JV gator is a tough sell. Nashville would not be.

It’s good to see the powers that be continually shuffling the deck and putting the ACC in better situations.

All of it makes me forget about not having the BET anymore.

ACC is good.

UEO the ACC it looks lined up the JV Outback Bowl (Gasparilla) which is played in Tampa's Stadium (not JAX). What isn't clear is will it 100% or a partial? The Outback is also in play occasionally for the ACC.

The Gator Bowl is a new 100% permanent site (upgraded from 50%). Nashville is a cool, trendy city but much better chance of getting better weather in JAX.

All good points, but there is no need to be in fenway.

Nobody worth their salt ever said...let’s go to Boston for the holidays!!

SD is fine.

I think Nashville would draw more than Jax.

Nashville is cool, Jax would be a reminder we aren’t in Miami or Atlanta.
The alternative to Fenway is Harvard Stadium or Detroit. Sans the connection to Harvard, I guess Harvard Stadium would be neat.

Strongly disagree on losing the BET. That was magic.

I think this came up earlier, and the takeaway was that the destinations are more fan-friendly, but the payouts for the replacement bowls are less. I hope we are at a place now where the monetary difference doesn't really matter.
Unless it’s been announced otherwise, I imagine the payouts are subject to change.

Anything can happen, but I’d be surprised to see the ACCtake a step back in payouts. I think we’ve had a great last couple of years, indicating that the conference is on the rise.
