    Does this team make a bowl at 5-7?

    Interesting conversation on College Gameday today. There is a petition for 5-7 teams to go to a bowl. There might not be enough 6-6 teams to fill all the bowl slots. If this comes to pass, I see no way we would be skipped over with the #1 schedule in the country.

    We shouldn't.

    If it happens, I imagine we take the deal and run, but it shouldn't happen.


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

    Doubtful. We probably don't deserve to. It depends on who else is sitting at 5-6 though, I guess.

    NO....though I would like it only for the 15 extra practices

    Will it happen? Highly unlikely.
    Do we accept a bid if it does? Hell yes.

    Re: Does this team make a bowl at 5-7?

    No, and quite frankly I think it's ridiculous teams with 6 wins go to bowl games. Like the days when you had to win at least 7 or 8 games to go to post-season.

    Re: Does this team make a bowl at 5-7?

    I'm sure computers would say we're the best or nearly the best of the 5-7 teams, we'll be ranked above plenty of 6-6 and even 7-5 teams from BCS AQ leagues.

    Not that I'm giddy about the ideas of teams with losing records in bowls, but if a 5-7 team plays in a bowl, better a 5-7 team that played ranked teams almost every week than a 5-7 team with an average or bad schedule.

    Bowl games aren't about merit.

    Do we still jump Missouri like last year if we do get invited?

    Currently 64 bowl eligible teams.
    10 more teams need one more win.

    Re: Does this team make a bowl at 5-7?

    I hope like hell 6-6 teams fill all the slots. There is no reason 5-7 should get you into a bowl. 6-6 shouldn't get you into a bowl.
