Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages.
1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0.
I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.
Southern Miss going to channel their inner Favre against the Noles in the appropriately named walkon bowl. The question is who will show up for the Noles? Between guys sitting out for the combine and others failing at school. Might be a competitive game.
Forget a lottery system. The bowls should be able to make bids on any team to come and play there. If the Whogivesacrap.com Bowl in Boise wants to pay Ohio State and USC $20MM each to come and play, they should be able to.
