The bowl situation is so volatile. Could Maryland, with a win, make a return trip to the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, where the Terps have happy memories from 2006? Not impossible, but it seems unlikely with other ACC schools doing well today on the scoreboard and likely to be invited ahead of Maryland.
The Terps could end up in Charlotte (Meineke Car Care Bowl), Boise (Humanitarian Bowl), Nashville (Music City Bowl) or elsewhere.
The Meineke folks could opt for North Carolina over the Terps. Clemson, which is beating South Carolina today, is another possible candidate for Charlotte -- although the Tigers could be picked for Orlando.
I hear Boise is not a bad destination. But it's far. It's change-planes-and-please-don't-lose-my-luggage far. Am I whining? Well, I am a sportswriter.
