Last year this time we were making plans to go to the Go-Daddy Bowl in Mobile. Right now, we are planning to go to the Orange Bowl in Miami. Is there a difference between the two bowls? You betcha there is.
Although, we sure had a great time at that last one and played Arkansas State, a team and school that reminded us very much of out NIU. This year, the opponent will be Florida State. That is a huge jump in competition and we sure are hoping for the best. Our team is hot and on a roll, but alas, we are still mid-major which always means difficulty when we play one of the Big Boys.
We have already gotten a room for New Year's Eve and day as we plan to drive down. Last year, we paid $40 a ticket for the Go-Daddy Bowl, but now that we are in the land of the Big Boys, prices have certainly gone up. Lowest nose-bleed seats in the end zone are $75 and go up to $225.
