    I would give anything to get Illinois in one of the Texas' Bowls.

    Re: Updated Rivals Bowl Projections...

    Ugh.....I remember all too well what happened the last time we played the Rockets.

    But, two full seasons have passed since then, and the Rockets looked like absolute dog crap last night against a team we've already beaten this season. So....another bowl win sure would be nice.

    Lets go back to the insight and play Michigan!

    ISU is getting dumped on in the Rivals Bowl predictions.

    Re: Updated Rivals Bowl Projections...

    Assuming Iowa State beats Colorado.. it would be depressing after this season simply getting another non-conference game for a bowl game. I am getting tired of playing TOLEDO.

    Re: Updated Rivals Bowl Projections...

    The 7 win rule being changed is huge. ISU can't be held hostage by a 7-5 Toledo or Idaho team now.

    The one common theme in these projections is ISU being one of two BCS teams, or the only BCS team in the at-large pool. If that happens, ISU will have the pick of the liter as any bowl with an open spot would want ISU. Our travel reputations should favor ISU over any other BCS team too (Boston College). If that happens, ISU will pick a bowl on ESPN in January. Get to 6 wins and ISU will be sitting in the catbird seat.

    Or ISU can just win out.

    There is prob one Big 12 team not including Nebraska or Oklahoma that could prob stop that Michigan's offense and that is Texas as they have the most team speed on defense but they prob wont be bowling this year so beat it....

    So if ISU gets 6 wins, they will probably not go to the New Mexico Bowl?

    Re: Updated Rivals Bowl Projections...

    All bowls are good bowls, but some are MUCH better than others...if somehow our fan following doesn't get us in a conference affiliated bowl game - then Detroit would be much better than New Mexico - at least for attendance - I also hate that first game when all of the national commentators are making fun of it...

    beat Colorado, then Beat Missouri and watch us take their spot again!

    Just my opinion, but I highly doubt it. If the opportunity is there to play on January 8th instead of December 18th (Finals), I'd be shocked to see ISU take the December game.

    Now December 26th might be different, but that still messes with Christmas.

    I just can't see us being left out of the Conference Affiliations with 7 wins! What was missouris record last year?

    Re: Updated Rivals Bowl Projections...

    Could we get a determination on the 7 win rule. I thought that a bowl can't shut out a fellow conference member by taking a 6 win team over a 7 win team. I haven't heard anything that all 7 win MAC teams trump ALL BCS teams with 6 wins for at large berths. That is BS. SOS should be considered.

    6 win teams can not jump 7 win teams within their conference bowl affliations, if there are more eligible teams than bowl slots. So a 6-6 ISU can not jump a 7-5 Texas Tech, if 9 teams are eligible. If 8 teams are eligible, then ISU can jump them.

    At-large bowls can pick whoever they want and that's the way it should be. Just look at Toledo. Very good chance they finish 7-5. ISU and Toledo have 1 common opponent, NIU. Toledo lost by 35, ISU won by 17.

    6-6 BCS team > 7-5 mid-major team.

    That is what I was thinking. But some are saying that ISU can not jump a 7 win MAC team in the selection process for at large bids. That appears to not be the case.
