    No Bowl?

    Not in the latest bowl projections...

    Tough to find 3 more wins on this schedule, but I hope it happens.

    Re: No Bowl?

    It was a big, letdown loss...I understand that. But who cares about our bowl projections anyway? We're not out until we're OUT.

    Our lumps have been justfully served to us, pick up the pieces and get psyched for Baylor.

    I always love these bowl projections. Clueless about how the process actually works.

    Re: No Bowl?

    I thought at the beginning of the year that we would win between 3 and 5 games. I'm not sure I've changed my mind on that?

    KU is probably the only game we might be favored in the rest of the way. Getting 3 more is going to be difficult. If we can clean up the stupid turnovers and penalties I think 3 more wins are possible. If not, 4 wins will be the max.

    Re: No Bowl?

    Why would that surprise you that we aren't in the bowl projections list. We make a lot of turnovers and stupid penalties. We recovered from those in the first three games but playing in the Big12 it isn't going to work in our favor until we get those problems fixed. I think a bowl game is possible if we can fixed the TO and penalty problem but if we keep playing as we have in the first half, the team will be home watching the bowl games.

    I still think we beat Kansas and Texas Tech and pull out one win from Baylor, Mizzou, and K-State.

    I agree, I would also throw in that I wouldn't be surprised with a big upset over one of the big boys at home. You just never know with CPR and co.

    Re: No Bowl?

    Baylor isn't winnable if we keep having 3+ turnovers and 5+ boneheaded penalties. I think we can do that and still beat Kansas, but the offense and defense can't afford more than a couple mistakes against Baylor.

    I would not rule out OSU when ISU will be coming off a bye week, and the weather may turn bad by then...

    I think as a fanbase we need to quit doing things like this. If you haven't seen over the past couple years, really any game is winnable.

    Re: No Bowl?

    The Oklahoma State game needs to be about 30 degrees with 40 mph winds. I'd feel a lot more confident slowing down Weeden and Blackmon that way.

    We've got to hope and pray that we still have an OL left or we will have a tough time winning another game....

    If we continue to do this early game **** we have been doing we won't be ANYBODY else. Like Dan Hawkins said "It's Division I football! It's the Big 12! It ain't intramurals!

    Re: No Bowl?

    This could be a turning point in the season. The players and coaches can use this as an educating event. Show them this tape and make sure they learn from this and realize that they have to quit the dumb mistakes and must have better ball control. This team is just as talented (if not more) than we thought they were. To go through what we did last night and only lose by 23 and be neck and neck with Texas in yards gained speaks volumes about the amount of talent this team has. I am confident that this team will learn from it and be better off because of it. Coaches have to utilize this moment though.
