Ask again in a couple of days. Win on Saturday and the Cats only have to be 4-4 in MAC play to make a bowl. After that we can all buy tickets to a different G5 bowl game and one of us will surely be right.

I think you would need more Northern bowl games to make that workable. However, if it an excuse to introduce a Skyline Chili Bowl in Cincinnati, I'm a supporter of the idea.

I would support this idea if Cinci had a domed stadium! [Oh, yes, and it had good shuttle bus service!]

As a lifelong resident of Cincinnati (sans 4 years of Athens) I would love to see a facility built eventually along the lines of what is in the works for Nashville/The Titans or similar to Lucas Oil in Indy. But the odds of that ever happening are about as likely as the Bobcats making the College Football Playoff.

If it is, you can say bye bye Bengals, because NO way will the tax payers ever pass another stadium levy like the one they got hosed on for the Bengals stadium. Still the worse public tax funded stadium in U.S. history.

I do wonder if there's ever been the prospect of Indy hosting a bowl at Lucas Oil? They tend to do well hosting large-scale sporting events. Tends to be a great venue for the BIG 23595 Championship Game.

I have to start my yearly tradition of summing a computer rankings odds of every teams bowl eligibility to project how many eligible teams there will be. I don't think this watch will be a concern for us this year. Teamrankings right now gives Ohio a 98.1% chance to be eligible which is the 25th highest in the country. I says a 15.6% chance to win the MAC which is second to Toledo's 57.8%. It gives us a 45.1% chance to win the East which is the best. It favor's Ohio in all of their remaining games. 9 regular season wins is most likely (26.2%), followed by 10 (23.9), 8 (19.9), and gives us a 11.7% chance to run the table.

The sum of all team's bowl eligibility chances is 78.98. There are 82 spots to fill so according to that even if we win only 6 games we have a very good chance to still go bowling.

That was about what I was thinking, 3-1 and going into MAC play Ohio had to be close to 99% chance for a bowl.

With the Cat's playing in Boca Raton earlier this season Camelia Bowl is probably most likely. Against a SBC division winner (assuming Ohio wins the East) which is so difficult to predict on the SBC side of things. SBC is practically a new conference with the new membership and the pecking order has yet to sort out.

I feel pretty good about the division at this point. Its not going to be easy but there are definitely some layups, enough to give me projections on a bowl appearance.

Miami got that UC win but I don't think it means much in the greater scheme. Chuck Martin's teams have a habit of fading toward the end of the season. If the Miami game was on the road I would be more concerned. The UC win was a big upset. Ohio's win over Iowa St had Scott Van Pelt picking it.

Now, after week four, teamrankings gives Ohio a 99.9% chance to be eligible. 10 of the best teams in the country it has rounded up to 100% already so this is tied for 11th with Miami (FL) and Notre Dame. It gives Ohio a 62.2% chance to win the East with Miami at 29.3%. Toledo has a 50.5% chance to win the MAC, Ohio 28.3%, Miami 13.1%, and CMU 3.3%. Everyone else in around 1% or less.

The sum of eligibility is down to 77.8. Some 5 win teams will probably go bowling.

With the way things look Ohio is playing for a MAC title more so than a bowl game this year. Last year at this point losing the MAC opener to Kent St it did feel as if it was about playing for a good year.

Its still possible to break the school record for wins this year too.

With four wins at this point, we could be bowl eligible by Oct 14, if we beat Kent and NIU. That would probably be the earliest since 2012 when we started 7-0.

Of course, that year we crapped in November and didn't the division.


We will get by.

The sum of eligibility chances dropped again on teamrankings.com It is now 77.6. There are 82 bowl slots to be filled. This is saying that the most likely scenario is about three 7 loss, and also JMU (and possibly Jacksonville State), will get to play this year. Ohio still has a 99.9% chance to be bowl eligible.

Summing on teamrankings predicts 3.2 unbeated teams. About 0.8 of that is G5 teams (Liberty, Air Force, Fresno State, James Madison, Marshall). Considering we would need most, of not all, conference champs to have two losses we need a lot of help to play in a NY6 game That might still be true even with a 13 game winning streak and a loss due to QB injury. James Madison is still ineligible to play for a title so if they beat Marshall then that would help a lot.

It gives us a 34% chance of going 10-2, a 25% chance of running the table, and a 24% chance of 9-3. It gives us a 32.9% chance of winning the MAC which is still second to Toledo's 44.8%. Miami is 14.1% and CMU at 4%. Everyone else is around 1% or 0%. It gives us a 63.2% chance to win the East against Miami's 28.7%. They next highest is Buffalo at 4.8%. It gives us a 63.6% chance to beat Miami. That's the toughest game left.

I summed the eligibility chances on teamrankings and it barely changed. It is 77.5. It gives Ohio a 27.7% chance to win the MAC to Toledo's 46% and Miami's 19.6. NIU and Buffalo now have over a 2% chance. It gives us a 54.4% chance to win the MAC East to Miami's 38.5% and Buffalo's 7.0%.

It gives Ohio a 22% chance to be 11-1, 37% chance at 10-2, and 27% chance to be 9-3, with about a 17 chance to be worse than 9-3.

Some juicy possibilities right there.

That Marshall game would be pretty epic... if it were in the Ohio Valley. That would be an incredible atmosphere in Athens or Huntington. Hell, even Columbus would be a huge crowd. In Montgomery, Alabama....? (I hate standard bowl locations if you dont hear me complain enough)

Would love to take down Nebraska as a final nail for Frank.

And I'd love a shot at PJ Fleck, just because.

That sum is still 77.5. It hasn't changed in two weeks. Team rankings gives both Ohio and Miami a 20% chance to win the MAC. Toledo is up to 54%.
