ACC Football Schedule: No More Beef-O-Meter

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlantic Coast Conference, Syracuse's new home for the 2013-14 football season, released its bowl schedule or the upcoming season. TNIAAM is sad to announce the Beef O'Brady Bowl is not on the list.

Over the years, Mr. Sean Keeley has created a lot of awesome traditions here at TNIAAM. One of the best is The Quest For Beef, which tracked the Orange's chances of being invited to a bowl game, specifically the Beef O'Brady Bowl in St. Petersburg, FL -- a.k.a. "The Grand Daddy of Them All!".

Sadly, because of Syracuse realignment from the Big East Conference to the Atlantic Coast Conference, there will no longer be a "Quest For Beef." We know this because the ACC released its bowl schedule Monday, and the greatest bowl of them all was not listed.

Here are the bowls that were, all of which could be possible landing spots for SU this upcoming season:

Military Bowl

Orange Bowl

Now, we could discuss what destination we would like the Orange to visit, if they do not win the ACC and qualify for the Orange Bowl, so we can visit as well (I'd prefer Nashville). Or which bowl is better. But, the most pressing issue is to figure out what bowl should get a meter and what it should be called?
