Since the ACC deal with the Orange Bowl, our opponents have been:
Penn State, Louisville, Kansas, Cincinnati, Iowa, Stanford, and West Virginia.
That list has some good names in it, but I think you'd agree that SEC #3 is, in general, going to be a more interesting opponent who will bring more fans than the type of opponent we've been getting via the BCS. Does it make the Orange Bowl a glorified version of the Capital One Bowl? Maybe, but a rich man's Capital One Bowl is better than a poor man's Orange Bowl, imo.
Agreed with this. And the PSU team that was there wasn't all that great.
