    Does 6-6 get us into a bowl this year?

    Might sound like a stupid question, but is it pretty much guaranteed that we'll make a bowl at 6-6?

    Also, what bowl would be most likely? I know I sound like I don't watch college football, but they add/subtract (mostly add) so many bowls and the conferences keep re-aligning with different bowls, so I haven't kept up.

    Yes. The way we travel, and the way they can publicize the signature wins Paul Rhoads comes up with, yes, we go to a bowl at 6-6.
    No doubt about it.

    Re: Does 6-6 get us into a bowl this year?

    Pretty sure 6-6 will be good enough for a bowl. At one point they were worried, there may not be enough 6-6 teams to fill bowl slots, they may have to let a 5-7 team into a bowl.

    Edit: and as Erik said, our travel reputation pushes us to the top of the 6-6 pile, if not above that, as we saw last year.

    There could be a LOT of bowl eligible teams in the Big XII this year (~10).

    Luckily, bowl reps like us and our traveling fanbase.

    Hoping for a bowl game that gets us a month of practice and a couple extra things. Chances for:
    1) Austen Arnaud to be the only ISU QB to win 2 bowl games.
    2) CPR to be the only ISU coach to ever win bowl games 2 years in a row.

    Those two things would be verrrrrry special.

    Re: Does 6-6 get us into a bowl this year?

    No guarantees, as the school east of us found out a few years ago now. That being said, first, we jumped Mizzou for a bowl last year, and CPR is a hot name in college football right now. Add in our fan following to bowls, and I think just about any bowl would salivate at the possibility of an ISU representation.

    And I know a lot of people scoff at it, but I would love the Pinstripe Bowl (assuming we couldn't get into a better bowl). Most of my relatives live on Long Island, so it would be very easy for me to attend.

    Id like that one. Definitely wouldnt like the pinstripe bowl. If im going to pay that much to go somewhere, i want to go somewhere warmer than here. Also, travel and hotels will be very expensive. Everyone will be all spread out throughout the NYC area, as opposed to some other bowl towns where everyone kind of books relatively close, and whole hotels are taken over by bowl fans.

    I'm not picky. I'll like whatever we get (if we get our 6).

    I said it in another thread, but I think this victory could be the difference between alamo and insight...this win could put us into a better bowl

    Re: Does 6-6 get us into a bowl this year?

    Last year we were 3-5 in conference and 6-6 overall and still got picked for a better bowl because of fan support (travel). We would be 4-4 if that happens this year and will have played 7 teams that have been ranked- so I don't think there's any doubt if we can keep from having a let-down and get 6 wins we will have a decent bowl invite. I just hope we don't implode and end up 4-8 cause we have a couple games we really should win if we keep playing tough.

    ...are you kidding? Yes, 6-6 gets us to a bowl game. With the schedule we played and the way we travel, no question we're going if we get to 6.

    Dallas or Houston are the easy ones for me to drive to. Dallas = wife get to go too. Houston = she has to work and I go alone. She would be ****** if she didn't get to go too.
