    Bowl Projections

    Kind of fun to read through. Means nothing. I suppose we're kind of mentioned for the Gator Bowl.

    Re: Bowl Projections

    Wow, this guy says there's a chance that Iowa could "slide" into the National Championship game...seriously? He does later list them as a prediction in the Alamo Bowl, but does he honestly think they have a chance at the National Title?

    The Rose Bowl, not the National Championship...which is still a stretch from a team that was 6-7 last year.

    No, he said they could slide into the Rose Bowl (Big 10 Champs), not the Allstate National Championship.

    Re: Bowl Projections

    Having no big 12 team in the gator bowl this year will be good. They have not taken a big12 team yet, which would mean the next 2 years they would be forced to take them. Would move all big12 teams up 1 slot once ISU is in a position to go bowling, IF ISU is in a position to go bowling next year.

    i think he just mentioned that iowa could slide into the Rose Bowl, not the Nat'l Championship, as the big 10 champ.

    "Eight?"
    "Eight!"

    Haha, thanks for pointing that out...my mistake. Not trying to start anything, just thought it was funny that 3 or 4 people gave me the same response.

    Re: Bowl Projections

    Iowa in the Alamo Bowl, now there's a shocker...

    I'm not even thinking of bowls for us right now. I'm more worried about getting back to 4 wins first because on paper this is not a bowl team right now.

    Cotlar had some guy on today that was predicting Iowa #4 in the Big 10. He bases a lot of his predictions on the lines more than the QB/WR/RB combos and pointed to his prediction of the MAC conference where he picked the winner last year because they had the strongest lines in the conference but everyone was overlooking them because of their inexpirienced skill positions. He also said ISU will be rebuilding this year since our lines have a lot of questions and weren't good last year. Was more about how this year will be more about building and putting a system in place than success in the W/L collumn.

    Re: Bowl Projections

    While the stars certainly seem to have aligned themselves for Iowa this year, I still find this Rose Bowl talk for them still somewhat dodgy. To me, this "no Michigan or Ohio State" on the schedule hype just reeks of 2005 Purdue, where they were the hot pick for the surprise Big Ten team and make it to the Rose Bowl because they didn't have the "big two" on the schedule. That team managed to go 5-6 the entire year.

    Probably one of the funnier sequences in movies history.

    Only on CF could a thread about bowl games turn into an office space thread in only 11 posts.

    They still play Wisconsin (and 2 or 3 other teams that beat them last year)

    The REAL question is, do they play Indiana or Northwestern.
