Reason 193 why it is good to be in the ACC
I know the Mobile stuff rubbed people the wrong way, but this Big East-Gator Bowl showdown is yet another reminder that our bowl situation would be worse had we stayed in the Big East. Although it appears the ACC is set during the latest round of bowl changes, things like the hybrid process help the conference and BC. The more partners involved the fresher we become to potential hosts. Right now you can write off Jacksonville, Nashville and Charlotte for BC based purely on those cities recent experiences with us. However, a new spot via a potential hybrid (especially in the west) may bring new games into the mix.
