    Thoughts about today's results

    How much do you guys think Iowa's loss will hurt our bowl chances due to a hit to our SOS? We might have dropped from the Alamo to the Pinstripe...

    We need to get 6 wins to make a bowl. SOS doesn't really matter a lot IMO for bowls (except BCS). They pick who brings in the most money.

    SOS wont affect things at all. If we get to 6 wins, we'll make a bowl. If we dont, we wont. Simple as that.

    1. We still need to get bowl eligible

    2. If we do, Jukebox is right, it's not like the NCAA tournamet where they factor in a bunch of stats. All they care about is how many people will you bring? See last year when ISU was picked over Missouri for the Insight Bowl.

    I really hope in the future that we start scheduling good out of conference opponents (i.e., not Iowa). I couldn't sleep at night knowing that we didn't make a bowl game due to Iowa's losses.

    This isn't basketball and RPI. SOS isn't that big deal it's 6 wins and having a good travel reputation

    The ISU football team is the one to blame if they dont go to a good bowl game.

    A Northwestern OOC game would benefit us more than Iowa. GG should really rethink JP as our starting AD. Is McCarney still available?

    Really. How much money would ISU lose buy dropping Iowa? We are already losing a pile of money by not playing Neb anymore.
