Now that I feel reasonably certain that the Bearcats are going bowling this season it doesn't feel quite so absurd to run down the capabilities.

So, have you been the Charlotte? I hear its beautiful. The Bearcats will almost certainly be heading down I-77 to the other Queen City to take on an ACC team, most likely one of the North Carolina teams which could be Wake Forest, N.C. State, North Carolina or even (gasp) Duke. The Blue Devils are bowl eligible for the first time in nearly two decades under David Cutcliff. As much as I would enjoy a trip to Orlando in December more than Charlotte, UC fans would turn out better to the Belk Bowl IMO. Its basically the same distance as last years trip to Memphis, just more to the east.
