If NMSU wins their bowl game, Id say the SB wins, but if that happens they probably won't show this graphic anymore, you know cause we're not supposed to be good.

Ironic that one of the teams we're shedding holds our future in this endeavor. Sure wish we could have hung on to NMSU.

That was the list of conferences and how many of these challenges each had won.

Cmon don’t get caught up in this like Cusa does. Bowls mean nothing.

It's not that important. But it'd be sort of nice to not be the only conference without the "bowl cup" anymore when ESPN shows their graphic during every single bowl game.

You are wrong bowls are another game you should win. That in itself makes them important. If you are there you are more a part of it because you aren't at home. You look around town to see if your fan base has taken over(like stAte did in Mobile). You bond a bit with people wearing your colors. You are proud of your team being invited to have earned that spot. You are proud of your team's fans for being there celebrating the season even if it wasn't exactly what you wanted. Bowls are important. This is our 7th year in a row to go to a bowl(a record for an Arkansas team).

I wish NMSU all the success in independence. And I'd be happy to schedule them in OOC play but they're just too far out there to make sense in this conference. I do think the improvement that could've come with a decade of conference stability might've made them attractive to the Mountain West.

In that case so is Texas State. It's an additional 30 mins on a plane.

I do think they will have a place in whatever develops out west after this all blows up

Puts the SB in good shape but you have the P5 playing this week. There are 3 conferences yet to play a bowl game. Also, the CFP games do not count towards the bowl cup.

Playoff counts. ESPN counted it last year.

Yep, bowl invites are important, and winning them is more important.

In FBS your record over time are the important measure of your program. Winning seasons in a row. Bowl invites in a row. Historical bowl win records. Times ranked. Number of conference championships. Number of conference championships in a row. Etc., etc.

I thought when I saw the standings this year during a bowl game they had a note that it does not include CFP games. I could be wrong or misread it. I would get not including the Championship game, the Semis would make sense to include.

The way I remember it last year was Clemson's Semifinal win gave the ACC the bowl challenge cup.

If bowl games don’t mean anything why does every school prominently display the trophies and use the victories as a recruiting tool? People that say they don’t matter likely have a losing record.
