    ESPN Bowl Projections

    New Mexico Bowl: Iowa State vs. Miami (OH) according to Schlabach

    Humanitarian Bowl: Iowa State vs. Ohio according to Adelson

    NCAA College Football BCS Bowl Projections Week 9 - ESPN

    I guess a bowl game is a bowl game, but with the schedule we've had either of these would flat out suck.

    I'll take venues that shouldn't even be allowed to host a bowl game for $100, Alex.

    I can't believe Adleson has Iowa in the Insight...that's a slap in the face.

    Thats just it, a bowl game is not a bowl game. This is the result of having bowls for .500 teams. Everyone is a winner. Honestly, what would you expect. Are you really surprised.

    Iowa vs Baylor would be fun to watch though.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    I'd say it's 50/50 that we make a bowl game. So I can understand those who leave us out.

    What I'm saying, though, is that it'd be pretty disgraceful to go 6-6 and reach one of those bowls against this schedule when 6-6 got us to Tempe against a Big Ten team last year.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    Everyone settle down on the bowl predictions. Bowl predictors are automatically picking us for the worst bowl because they are assuming we scrape together a 6th win and that no one is interested in a team from Ames, IA.

    Not one single prediction had us to Tempe last year. Let's win 6, 7, or 8 games and let Jamie Pollard and co. start the marketing campaign.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    IF it were to come down to the Insight Bowl again, I have a hard time believing they would pass us up again. We've won it twice and they know we travel well...they took Minn to go there 3 out of 4 years and they lost all 3. I could see us there again against a Michigan/Purdue/Indiana (depending on how the big 10 plays out)

    I don't think i'll really start getting hardcore into where we might go until 1) We actually are bowl eligible. 2) About another 2-3 weeks of football are played

    I also do find it funny that 13 (14 if you count USC?) teams are out of bowl game eligibility thru this week and Minn is one of them...

    I think it's more of a case that ISU could still finish 5-7, and even if the team reaches minimum eligibility, could be the lowest (or near-lowest) Big 12 team on the list.

    I'm almost more bothered that those projected matchups would be vs. MAC teams (a conference in which, this season, a potential 5-7 ISU team could win without much trouble). I hate the sub-BCS alliance setup almost worse than the BCS. If it's going to be this way, with no playoff system and no adherence to bowl tradition, having Conference A #1 vs. Conference B #4 **** is ludicrous.

    You can still have auto-slots for each conference if you want but then why not set the bowl matchups based (somewhat) on performance?

    6 wins does not guarantee you a bowl game, and ISU is not guaranteed 6 wins.

    Phil Steele picked us to drop below .500. He won't have us in bowl projections unless we get to 6 wins.
