Even in the darkest times, there’s still light at the end of the tunnel. It’s never as good as it seems and it’s never as bad as it seems. Despite the lackluster performance against Missouri, there’s still a chance we could have some shirtless fans ready to cheer on the Cats in a bowl game after the regular season.
Before the Mizzou game, a few folks had the Cats playing the Outback Bowl. Brett McMurphy is still that optimistic, but the projections are now all over the place. There are matchups with Texas, return trips to Jacksonville and an excursion out west to Las Vegas.
