CBS predicts Kirby plays in the Orange Bowl 2016-2017 season against Florida State.
That’s down there where Mark Richt toils. That’s not a Play-Off Game but it certainly is a Major Bowl Game and FSU is certainly a top-notch opponent. It’s not only the home stadium for Miami of Florida and a Major Bowl Game but it also is the home of the NFL Miami Dolphins. Built in 1985 they renamed the often criticized stadium February 2016 as the “New Miami Stadium.” What a load of bullshit to call that rickety 31 year old stadium the “New Miami Stadium.” Any renovations they finally do to the old piece of shit it like the stadium where the Gator Bowl is played each year are woefully inadequate and lousy venues.
It does underscore my prediction too that Kirby goes 11-3 or even 12-2 because to play in the Orange Bowl REQUIRES like a 12-2 record to play there as one of the 4 Major Bowl Games for all my lifetime. I’ve been there and do not think much of the place despite it being named part of the Play-Off system dubbed “The New Year’s Six Bowl Games.” Orange Sugar Rose and Fiesta adding Peach now a stretch and Cotton Bowl which long since deserved to be in there. The downfall of the Orange Bowl has really been attributed to the stadium itself as well as the long-suffering ACC all cupcake conference which is NOT a conference and NEVER has been but a one-team conference. 1 or certainly at most 2-team conference.
So CBS Sports is saying Kirby will be 11-3 or 12-2 this season which is my prediction too putting us in “New Year’s Six” Orange Bowl against FSU. Mighty high praise. I’ll go along with that. Their expert at CBS used to run his own site BCS.com and it was quite good until he quit paying for it.
