Just a few thoughts while we all wait anxiously for the start of the Music City Bowl, which will feature North Carolina State and Vanderbilt in the first game of today's so-so New Year's Eve bowl lineup. OK, tonight's Clemson/LSU game is a pretty good matchup, but the other three games aren't exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when they laid out the original bowl system during breaks at the Constitutional Convention. Hmmm. The most disappointing preseason BCS favorite in years - USC - will take on Georgia Tech, which will enter the Sun Bowl with an impressive 6-7 record.

Midway through November, Maryland had lost three straight games and it began to look as if the team might never pick up its sixth win and become bowl eligible. The turnover-prone Terps had just lost at home to Syracuse, 20-3, in a game in which Maryland players conceded the team appeared flat. Maryland's outlook has changed dramatically since then. A team that had never won a game in November under third-year coach Randy Edsall went on to win two of its last three in the regular season.

So many bowl games. So many corporate sponsors. Mr. Flip is here to help, with a partial list and helpful comment for each. San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl: If you attend this game, don't leave before the final gun. Severe penalty for early withdrawal. Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl: Mr. Flip would suppose this is one game that had better be televised in high definition. Papajohns.com Bowl: For the complete sedentary experience, this bowl combines watching football with surfing the Web and eating pizza.

Though bowl games and Maryland Terrapins have been mutually exclusive terms in the first two years under Randy Edsall, many believe that will change in 2013.  Given the fact that the Terps seemed to be headed toward becoming bowl-eligible last season until they ran out of healthy bodies -- particularly at quarterback -- winning at least six games this fall doesn't appear to be far-fetched. But how far do you think the Terps can go -- and to which bowl? I think it's fair to assume that Maryland won't go from 4-8 to a Bowl Championship Series game, though Ralph Friedgen did that in his first year after inheriting a 5-6 team loaded with NFL talent from Ron Vanderlinden in 2001.

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen said Sunday that the Terps deserve a bid to an "upper-echelon" bowl game befitting a team that tied with two other schools for the third-best record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Maryland's 38-31 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday pushed its record to 8-4 (5-3 ACC) — a mark that Friedgen said entitles the Terps to one of the top bowls affiliated with the ACC. Bowl games are not required to pick teams based on final record alone, making their selections difficult to forecast.

COLLEGE PARK — Representatives of the Military Bowl watched Saturday's Maryland-N.C. State game and said they would like to have Maryland in the game at Washington's RFK stadium. "We'd love to have Maryland," bowl president Steve Beck said in an interview. "(We're) right down the road. It would be great to have them. " The question is whether Maryland would like to stay close to home — the game is Dec. 29 — or whether the Terps will have the option of traveling to a higher bowl in the ACC pecking order.

Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien felt uneasy. It was moments after Florida State's 30-16 victory over Maryland last Saturday, and Seminoles players seemed eager to wish O'Brien good luck in the next Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Florida State players weren't just being polite. The Seminoles need the Terps to knock North Carolina State out of the Atlantic Division title race today for Florida State to claim the crown. O'Brien immediately felt uncomfortable in the spoiler's role.

Maryland learned Sunday that it will play in the Military Bowl at Washington's RFK Stadium — an outcome that seemed to puzzle and disappoint a school that believed it had earned the right to travel to a higher-level bowl game far from campus. The Terps (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be matched on Dec. 29 at 2:30 p.m. against East Carolina (6-6), which finished in a tie for fourth place in Conference USA. Maryland did not want to be disrespectful to the Military Bowl, which is in its third year — it was formerly called the EagleBank Bowl — and benefits the USO. But it was no secret that the Terrapins hoped and expected to be invited to an upper-echelon bowl game.

Almost any bowl game looks appealing to a Maryland football team that remained on its chilly campus after last season while other Atlantic Coast Conference teams prepared for postseason games in enticing locations such as Miami and Orlando, Fla. But of course, there is appealing (for example, the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, or the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando) and then there is spectacular (the Orange Bowl in Miami). With three regular-season games left, many Maryland players and coaches can't help but glance at the list of bowl games and contemplate their possible December or January destinations.
