    Didn't we play in the Liberty Bowl in like 1971 or 1972?

    I think ISU would match up pretty darn good with UCF

    yeah, but Memphis is not that far away, by car. It'd be pretty cheap and easy to go. Might get a better turnout. Mixed feelings on this one. I'd rather just think about getting to 6 wins, then worry about which bowl we go to.

    We'll get to 6 wins. If we don't, then that means we didn't beat Colorado. In which case, we wouldn't deserve a bowl game.

    well, that's pretty much my point. I'm more concerned with just becoming bowl eligible, at this point, than I am with which bowl we would theoretically go to. Colorado is not going to be a walk in the park. We don't have the greatest track record, there.

    Agreed, Colorado is more solid then they appear.

    @Colorado St. Won 24-3
    @California Lost 7-52
    Hawaii Won 31-13
    Georgia Won 29-27
    @Missouri Lost 0-26
    Baylor Lost 25-31
    Texas Tech Lost 24-27
    @Oklahoma Lost 10-43


    They have two close losses to a solid Baylor and Tech.

    Re: Rivals.com projects ISU to Liberty Bowl

    If we are bowl eligible I would take this a million times better over the Humanitarian Bowl or the New Mexico Bowl. Plus I'd likely go to the Memphis Bowl, can't say that about those two or the Pinstripe.

    If we scrounge out one more game (which we should, but lets not get ahead of ourselves), I would be happy to take an invite from the Liberty Bowl. I'd rather be in Texas, but I think I could have a good time spending a week in Memphis.

    Edit: SEC already has 6 bowl eligible teams though, and Florida only needs one more win (with an FCS team yet to go, a good FCS team, but an FCS team) and Georgia would only need wins over Idaho State and Georgia Tech. I guess we all need to be pulling for a fellow Ag/Technology School and hope that the Ramblin' Wreck wins that one!

    Edit again: Rivals is projecting two SEC BCS teams, I take it back. Still pulling for Georgia Tech though. Gotta support fellow engineers.

    I'd like to say, "Those losers have been blown out twice," but that line really doesn't go so well for us right now.

    Oh, well. Let's just beat them and see where the chips fall.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    CU still lost to Texas Tech at home, when we handled them pretty well. CU and ISU talent wise are pretty close, but I think ISU has better coaching, so that should mean a win.

    Cal is probably the most bipolar team of all time this year.

    Just a thought, but why not wait until we win six games before trying to figure out our bowl situation?

    This would be sweet. New Year's Eve, ESPN, bowl with history/tradition, and an 8 hour drive. The only down side is playing the CUSA champion and if it was SMU or Houston that wouldn't even be that bad.

    The best possible option would be the Texas Bowl and then the Dallas Classic. Need some help to probably get there though. I would love to get a shot at Illinois in one of those games.
