Mailbag June 18: Any Opinion About The American Bowl Lineup After This Year?

by Categorized: Mailbag Date:

Q: Good afternoon Dez.  I hope all is well and that you are recooperating nicely.  This is part personal question and mailbag question as I am going through College football withdrawls about now.  Is your son camping up at UConn this year?  If so I hope to see you up there.  Also do you have any opinion on the American Bowl Line up after this year.  It seems Aresco is working diligently to get a nice line up but I fear all I have to look foward to is going to be the Ramen Noodle Soup Bowl. Charles O’ Neal, East Hartford

A: Hey Charles. Thanks..I have to admit Ramen Noodle Soup Bowl made me laugh. It’s just hard to say at this time I think but Mike Aresco has some big time connections with this stuff having worked with all these people before as TV exec. He has some challenges but he knows what the league is up against. I know I’m in the minority here but I do think everything is going to shake out fine for football but all the programs and everyone attached them are going to have to crank it up which would take care of the bowl situation. In that respect, this year is important …Actually, both of my sons will be going.  It’s a good time with good instruction and I was surely impressed so, yes, I’ll see ya there.
