    Better venues for the championship game

    It's irrelevant to talk about this for many reasons.

    1) we're in Frisco through January 2020 and it's not like the NCAA is going to fall over their feet to move a venue in contract earlier than they have to for Fcs football.

    2) it's pointless to speculate about what city would be nice if said city didn't even bid to host it back in 2009. It was Chattanooga, Frisco, little rock, Missoula and Spokane. That's it.
    Looking at that list, we probably picked the second best location in Frisco. Staying in Chattanooga would've been better. Does anyone know what stadium little rock was offering? I hope it's not the 54k war memorial stadium that is the Razorbacks home away from home.

    If we want a particular city to consider hosting in 2021 and onward, we need to flood their local tourism office with suggestions.
    I don't want to hear about how, "this city treats us like we're not just an afterthought". All cities will treat it like an afterthought. That's just reality.
    What's important is what is central to where most fan bases will come from (central or southeast), and then which has the cheapest flight and hotel options first, restaurants, night life and attractions second. Be honest, you're showing up to go to a football game, not which town has the best microbreweries.

    The stadium in Frisco has lots of room for tailgating and tailgate town activities before the game. Is there much parking around the stadium in Orlando?

    The Benz in the ATL will offer a soccer seating setup. Not sure of the capacity in the Soccer arrangement but its indoors and plenty of flights into the airport.

    I am positive that North Charleston, host Charleston Southern, will submit a very competitive bid in 2020.

    It's not pointless 2020 will be here sooner then you think and putting out other ideas could help other cities make other offers. 66 million people visited Orlando in 2015 which makes it the most visited in the nation....Hotels bars and airport infrastructure is more then in place... Orlando is also one of the cheapest airports to fly to... so even west cost people could come...I think if we could get one of the theme parks to sponsor.. the NCAA could make more money..
