    Can we play in the New Mexico Bowl?

    I know this has been discussed last year and little bit last year, but I never really saw a definite conclusion. Will the university let us play in a bowl that occurs the Saturday after finals week? I thought this was an issue last year.

    We won't find out unless that's our only option. But a Dec 18th bowl could be turned down by Geoffrey. Even if we didn't I assume it would feel more like a regular game than a bowl, with the team flying down on Friday and very limited numbers of fans/band.

    Agreed, I want ISU to get the best bowl possible, but being within driving distance from CO would be pretty sweet personally.

    Bowl activities include more than just the game, and those other activities are normally mandated for the teams. The team would have to be there by Wednesday to participate in those festivities.

    Which is the reason a Dec 18th bowl might be declined. That's right after finals week and puts hundreds of kids (and proffesors) into dissaray trying to get things figured out. Plus even if they took the finals early it will be tough for the kids to focus on passing their classes and getting ready for a bowl at the same time.

    I really hope that a Dec 18th Bowl doesn't turn out to be our only option. Though I'd take it over no bowl any day!

    Let's just win our last two so this becomes a non-issue.
