    ESPN's latest bowl projections

    Mark Schlabach and Andrea Adelson have released their latest bowl projections for ESPN.com.

    Schlabach has ISU vs. Idaho in the New Mexico Bowl while Adelson has Iowa State playing (get this) Northern Illinois in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Yes, that is the same Northern Illinois team that the Cyclones opened the season with.

    I don't understand how we will be in a worse bowl than last year. IF we are bowl eligible than we would have 4 compared to the 3 conference wins.

    At least we'd have tape of the opponents QB for once.

    Adleson is an idiot, that would never happen. It would be the worst ratings of any bowl and no one would travel to Detroit to see us kill an opponent we already beat.

    Re: ESPN's latest bowl projections

    The way this team is trending, I am starting to think (or should I say, believe) we WILL win our last two games. That being the case, we'll have a much better bowl than what is being predicted today by the "experts".


    Keep doing what you're doing to build Strong Towns.

    Representatives from any bowl game would be foolish to pick 2 teams to play each other again in the same season.

    Re: ESPN's latest bowl projections

    Any bowl would be fantastic this year. That being said, I wish some of these other schools would help us and either lose or win as necessary to knock a few Big 12 teams out. Oh, well.

    I am personally pushing for that bowl in Memphis as an at large. Maybe we should start a 'We love Memphis' website for those guys :)

    It's been awhile since they've gone bowling, so I'd guess not this year. But I really don't know. They weren't able to fill Arrowhead any more than we were the past two years.

    at their peak KSU fans travelled VERY well. And as far as arrowhead goes...back when Iowa played them in the eddie robinson (maybe 2000 or 2001) KSU filled arrowhead outnumbering iowa fans 3:1.

    Re: ESPN's latest bowl projections

    Chris....do you think these guys actually research the lower level bowl bids that much? Or do they sort of just throw whatever teams they want into each game? Do you think they consider some other factors which may make Iowa State attractive to an at large bowl?

    Re: ESPN's latest bowl projections

    I'm guessing these bowl prognosticators still aren't giving us a chance against Mizzou. After yesterday, I'm feeling pretty good about that game. Still gotta take care of CU first. One step at a time...

    I'd love to play Northern Illinois again if we end up in a non-Big 12 bowl. Guaranteed win.

    National guys research almost nothing. If you're not a big name, they barely know who you are.

    I am surprised that they don't try a little harder with the big news that Paul Rhoads keeps making.
