The first reference to it as I remember was bowl selections in the Groh era

The most famous being in Boise after finishing much higher in the standings because it was deemed "we were not good to travel" and had exams so could not go to an early pre-Christmas bowl in Orlando..

It was stated that a rule 2(b) (as in a rule 2 be created on the fly) was the reason we were sent to bad bowl sites (the real culprit was poor ticket sales to the Gator and other bowls in the 1990s so the bowl people would pass us over - after we rectified that with the two well sold Continental Tire/Belk/Charlotte Bowl appearances -we still seemed to get screwed as the bowl guys were going on reputation and not actual stats - the Gator never forgot 1991 and always passed us over)
