  • Sugar Bowl in St. Louis?

    Why not?

    It can be done. The Rams are gone that last game in Dallas (Jan 1st and the Sugar Bowl is Jan 2nd) so the field can be prepared with all the Nokia ads and other stuff without a problem.

      I'm not sure how many people would want to travel and stay in the Midwest when winter is kicking in. Personally, I would leave it in SEC territory. Probably Jacksonville, the Georgia Dome, or Tampa, in that order (although all 3 have home games the last week).

        There are bowl games in Idaho, Nashville, Memphis, and Detroit already. Sure having a nice climate outside is nice but that should not make the decision. There could be a bad storm like there was for the Super Bowl in Atlanta when the Rams played there. Jacksonville already has the Gator Bowl, Atlanta has the Peach Bowl and Tampa already has the Outback Bowl. Orlando has two bowl games too.

          True, but we are talking BCS games here, the showcase of bowl games. You can play the Humanitarian Bowl in Alaska for all that matters. But you want your high profile games in high profile cities where climate, tourist activities, etc. are the most attractive.

          The Gator Bowl could probably be moved elsewhere, like I dunno, say Gainesville? The Peach Bowl is played the 30th. There were already 2 bowl games scheduled in New Orleans this year anyway, so what difference does it make if 2 are played in another city?

          Honestly though, if Ohio State would go to the Sugar Bowl, I would much rather travel to Florida, or Georgia before St. Louis.

            Great idea, Kev.

            I'll take a bowl game and the hornets, gratefully.
            Are you on the list?

              How about you worry about breaking ground on SLU's Arena first?

                Neither is going to happen, sadly...

                        It could happen anywhere if the price was right, but one of the southern or western cities will likely get it.

                        Baton Rouge would be the sentimental first choice, but you have to wonder whether it could handle the onslaught, and whether people would want to go there. I'm guessing Houston as the next choice, then probably San Antonio.

                        There's nothing to stop any of the cities who currently have bowl games from getting a second one. In fact, many of them already have two (e.g. Orlando, who would probably salivate at the prospect of the Sugar Bowl) so I don't think any places like Jacksonville are going to be d'qed from consideration.

                          I think we should wait at least a month or so before we start to loot their events like the Sugar Bowl and Mardi Gras.
