And how many people you know, would spend 1-2 K on travel, hotel expenses, and paid time off (at work), to go to a cold, wet, and frigid stadium to see possible BCS teams?
Not entirely a bad thought (honoring veterans), but for most people, the attraction are the teams, and the location. Most BCS games games are played in ideal locations for a reason: MONEY!!!!

You are ridiculous. While the weather conditions would be different for SEC teams, I doubt it would change much. A lot of those teams are built to play power football which is ideal in wild weather conditions. Pac 12 teams and Big 12 teams would struggle the most with it.

You just made two opposing arguements. So your going to FORCE the fans to fill a stadium 1K miles away north, in the middle of the WINTER????? But, again, IF they are "True Fans", according to you, that is worth the risk.
Bro, I am not saying its not a cool idea, I think it is really, but we live in a world the spins because of money, the mad dash for the big buck.....and sloppy, risky, frozen and uncomfortable conditions do not draw CFB crowds for teams from the SEC, which is usually in the BCS picture. Have you been in the college scene for a while? I have, and college boosters would NOT be happy with that type of arrangement. Boosters are what make these teams go round, belllleeeedattt.

I am a service member myself, so the thought of having another Bowl honoring veterans isn't entirely disconcerting. However, as I said, I don't see BCS board going north with it outdoors. They have the Armed Services bowl, they have Army vs. Navy...I'm ok with that. Although I am an idealist by nature, I have learned the value of pragmatism. Simply put, it aint gonna happen Jack (reference to Si from Duck Dynasty).

and the idea of moving it to a cold weather city is just bad. People don't want to vacation in a cold city in January and watch the game played in potentially miserable conditions. These tickets are far from cheap and I doubt the schools would want to eat the cost of having tickets go unsold because people would rather watch the game at parties than in windy, snowy conditions

The SEC has been coating for years and years., and the SEC doesn't cover up felonies, etc, you fool. Amazing when I read all these schools that are not allowing certain players to playin the bowls are non SEC teams. I guess the SEC is crime, school code violation free:) OK, play it in Buffalo, Foxboro........I believe everytime ND beat Alabama it was in the South? No if ND is going to beat the bama morons, they will beat them whereever! Just would be cool to have a Northern Bowl to let the southern guys feel the chill a little, and to honor the soldier who did not deal with the enemy under ideal conditions. Let these spoiled, enabled athletes feel what the real world is all about. Oh yes, Bama grads get to work in the real world car dealerships.....love joking with you people.
