    For what it's worth, ESPN still has us making a Bowl

    ESPN released their bowl projections after week 6 and Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards still have us making a bowl game. Mark has us facing Rutgers in the Pinstripe bowl and Brad has us playing Colorado State in the New Mexico bowl.

    I know we still have 7 games to play and 3 of those have to be wins to even qualify, but it's still nice to see the national media believes we will get there.

    Two horrible destinations. But 6-6 teams can't be choosy.

    Bowl is a bowl, even if it's one of those two.

    3 wins in 5 games, most would have taken that in august, I like how this team plays, schedule is brutal, but very possible to get 3 more....

    Missouri, Texas Tech, and Kansas are all winnable games. I'm still not convinced K-State is as good as ESPN makes them out to be, and A&M has to come to our place and TT gave them a run for their $$$.

    I still think we can get to 6-6 or better, but JP might have to put in some competing offers with the refs just to get a fairly called game (I'm not even talking about them leaning in our direction)

    We have a very slim margin. Seven games left, three I would deem unwinnable (OU, OSU, Texas A&M)... Four others are very uncertain. Kansas would be a must win, and we'd have to win 2 of 3 between Missouri, Kansas State, and Texas Tech.

    The only game I feel like a definite win left on the schedule is Kansas.

    Mizzou, K-State, and Tech are games we have a decent shot at winning.

    A&M, Okie State, and OU are games I think we have no shot at. But then again, Rhoads has proven that there is no such thing as a game we have no shot at.

    For whatever reason, I don't see aTm at home on Homecoming to be unwinnable. I mean, c'mon man.

    Yes there is. There is no shot at winning vs Oklahoma St or Oklahoma

    Oklahoma State on the third Friday of November at 8 pm? Sounds good to me. The cold is a neutralizer dont care what anyone says.

    Oh please. You make it sound like it's going to be Lambeau in January type conditions. The theory of weather getting to OSU is soooooooo overblown

    Many would reply to your comment by telling you that Nebraska team wasn't as good as this year's OU or OSU teams

    We don't know what the weather will be like, though. Let's hope for a massive blizzard.

    Question have you ever played in 20 degree weather with a 20 mph wind?
