    ISU ranked above BCS Bowl team

    #60 ISU
    #61 UConn

    That's the Sagarin computer ranking.

    Great system we have here. 4 other schools in addition to ISU that aren't even bowl eligible are ranked above BCS Bowl Game UConn by this computer model.

    We already did one better. We beat a team that played for last year's MNC this year

    So, really, beating a BCS Bowl team would be a step backwards for us.

    But we don't have the National Champ on our schedule, so next year is a bust already.









    I shouldn't need this


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

    What are you talking about? Did I somehow miss next year's CyHawk game getting cancelled?

    No, No, No, the CyHawk game is still on. Your just getting next years National Title contender confused with a team that actually played for the National Title this year.

    But, but, but UConn is SO GOOD, that we need to back out of our scheduled game with them next year! They're going to crush us the way Utah did this year.

    Never mind the fact that in 12 years Randy Edsall has a coaching record that is barely above .500.

    Even if UConn wins whatever BCS game this year, when we beat them next year, it will be nothing big. It will be just another win.

    Re: ISU ranked above BCS Bowl team

    ISU fans should have loved the BCS up until now. It was our only chance to make a big bowl game.

    With our schedule now its going to be tough to make it to one.

    Re: ISU ranked above BCS Bowl team

    Imagine how bad WVU fans feel? Their team is clearly the best in it's own conference, but they aren't getting in.

    The Big East will send a ranked team to the Meineke Car Care Bowl and an unranked one to the BCS. That's ****ed. It's like the crap version of the 2001 Big 12.

    UConn to the BCS is an embarrassment, but what else are you going to do? Give the MWC or WAC an auto bid? They're even worse.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    They're worse at the bottom, but both MWC and WAC are better at the top, pretty consistently over the past 6-7 years.

    Maybe not now that 3 of the top mountain teams are splitting, but over the last 6-7 years between Utah, TCU, Boise, Nevada, and BYU you would have always had a team that was much, much better than UCONN.

    UConn is not good, they have one impressive result on their entire schedule, a 16-13 OT win over 9-3 WV at home.

    The bad Big East propped them up with a 5-2 conference record.

    Their non conf results:
    Lost 30-10 against Michigan
    win over FCS Texas Southern
    Lost to TEMPLE
    wins over Buffalo and Vanderbilt

    Sagarin computer thinks UCONN vs. ISU is a coin flip and its right.

    Oh, I agree. That's why I wanted WVU to get in. They don't have any awful losses, played LSU very close in Baton Rouge, and have been stomping people lately.

    UConn stumbled through a bad conference, barely winning games against mediocre opponents. Now they're going to get prison raped by OU. Where have I seen that before?

    I agree, but Temple = ISU. Temple is pretty stout.

    Im still jealous everytime I watch their Dline.
