Is Clemson shut out of the Sugar, Cotton, Fiesta and Rose bowls?

For those who think the contracts between the Pac-12 and Big Ten have shut the ACC out of the Rose bowl (or the SEC / Big XII contract has shut us out of the Sugar and Cotton bowls), here's something to think about... because of the rotation of the bowls for semi-final games and the rule they put in place stating that no #3 or #4 seed should ever have home field advantage over a #1 or #2 (if it's possible to avoid it), that creates some interesting possibilities. Suffice it to say that it's possible for Clemson (or any ACC team who can finish in the top 10 or so) to play in each and every one of the "playoff" bowls. Hey, that might even be a good goal to achieve by 2025/26!

Here is the article I posted on my blog:
