Gator Bowl bound
I'll admit, I was a little concerned for those Mountaineer fans who were flocking to the Gator Bowl website and Ticketmaster last week buying tickets for the Gator Bowl. I could just see them getting left holding the bag if the Gator Bowl decided not to invite the Mountaineers. Yeah, the bowl's chairman, Rick Catlett, made it sound like the bowl wanted to invite West Virginia to play Florida State. They viewed the opportunity to have Bobby Bowden coaching in his final home game against his former team as a huge draw. Catlett sounded convincing enough, but knowing the disdain he and his bowl has for the Big East, I wasn't sure I wanted to buy what he was selling.
