    ISU could win Big 12 North and NOT be bowl elligible!

    With one win going into the conference, it is possible for Iowa State to win four conference games and share the Big 12 title, or win five and win it. Five wins would not be bowl elligible and six would be marginal.

    I think this is interesting, but shouldn't be a problem for us. I hope it is though :).

    I would take any win at this point - here is the list of potential win in priority order: Colorado, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Tech, Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. Where do you place the cut line to win? I would think you would have to win three North games against three North teams to be the rep against Oklahoma. That would mean we would have a chance to win a fifth game in the championship if we beat Colorado, Kansas State, and Missouri if everybody else North fell all over themselves in their haste to let us win. Yep, we could lose the next four games and still go for the title after a 1-7 start. That would be pulling a big rabbit out of the hat.

    Let's worry about winning game #2 right now because we have some VERY tough games in the next month.

    Yes, and every American-born US citizen over 35 could be president of the United States. Your point ...?

    Point - I would not buy advertising for the Big 12 North South championship game. The game could become a smear of C John's avatar bug: A MESSY BUG ON THE SCREEN. Love that bug though.

    Looks like Kansas has their act together as much as anyone in the North.

    I still think we have a chance to do well in the Big 12 as goofy as that may sound.

    Too bad 6 wins is considered marginal for us when some teams (ie 2006 Hawks) get 6 wins and make a BCS Bowl.....

    6 wins got them to a BCS bowl? Umm last year they went to alamo with 6 wins.

    Six wins would get us a decent bowl...looks far off right now, but stranger things have happened. I saw two of them in the game last night.

    With their problems, I do not think the Hawks will win six by season end. Too many Hawkexcuses.

    I think they'll win six. Same as last year. And go to the Alamo Bowl again. They like the Iowa money.
