Corn Flakes: Going To The Holiday Bowl?

New, 28 comments
Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

Plenty of things still in flux, and that's just the Big Ten. It looks like Wisconsin has Paul Chryst lined up. Ohio State is losing their offensive coordinator, and Michigan - who the hell knows what's going on in Michigan. It might take them forever just to figure out how to tie their shoes with all the politics that appears to be going on.

I tried to link an article that stated that high air fares are keeping fans away from the bowls, but for some reason the site wouldn't let me link, so i checked Priceline.com myself. Flights leaving Omaha on December 26th and returning Monday December 29th ran from $701 to $1,114.

Holy not going to a bowl game for that kind of $$$$.

Hotels ran from $132 to $222 a night, so add another $396 to $666 to your costs.

We haven't even gotten to tickets, food, and fun.

So, who's going to the Holiday Bowl? And if you are, where you coming from?
