    Miami will "withhold the UM football team from bowl consideration following the 2011 regular season" because of NCAA inquiry.

    Re: Bowl Situation Thread

    I finally found out that the TicketCity Bowl is for a C-USA team for 2011 season. If they can't fill it, it goes to the Big 12. C-USA has seven bowl tie-ins including TC Bowl.

    They currently have 4 teams, including Houston, eligible. Only two more teams can possibly become eligible.... so we are GUARANTEED a bowl game if Texas Tech loses. Big 12 would get the TicketCity Bowl at large spot for the conference's eighth team.

    I thought that TicketCity's contingency if C-USA couldn't fill it was now the MAC. I believe that changed due to realignment (12 teams down to 10).

    In response to the OP I think 71 bowl eligible teams would be kind of fun. Who would be the one team that gets left out? (I think it may be from the Sun Belt, with 4 bowl-eligible teams and only two bowl tie-ins.)

    No.


    The Big Ten will serve as the “anchor” conference (if it produces enough qualifiers), with the opponent from Conference USA after the regular seasons of 2011, 2012, and 2013. Due to the current realignment of the Big 12 Conference, Conference USA will provide teams for the next three years, instead of every other year. The Mid-American Conference will serve as a secondary back-up should either conference fail to produce enough bowl-eligible teams.

    Ok. I guess not then. That's straight from the source. I found something that said different plus Phil Steele has us going there, but I guess that would be wrong. Thanks for the info.

    The MAC has 3 primary and 5 secondary agreements. With 6 eligible teams, it's possible that none of the leftovers will go to Dallas, but not automatic.

    New Mexico - may be short if 2 Pac-12 teams go BCS
    Beef O'Brady's (St. Petersburg, FL) - up in the air. Gets Big East #6. Only 4 currently eligible.
    TicketCity - CUSA will definitely be short
    Fight Hunger - ACC spot is already open
    BBVA Compass - SEC might be short, depending on this weekend's results

    I'm calling my shot. Iowa State WILL go to a Big XII specific bowl game. Mark it down. Worst we do is Meineke Car Care Bowl.

    Re: Bowl Situation Thread

    I bet the MAC gets at least five of the six. I don't see more than two of the four bowl eligible Sun Belt teams making a bowl. Probably Arkansas State and UL-Lafayette, with FIU and WKU not making it.

    I agree as long as Tech loses. If not that's 9 out of 10 Big 12 teams eligible. I say we pass Mizzou. We did two years ago. Why wouldn't we now that they are leaving.

    But I will be happy with ANY bowl game. It's quite the achievement with a Frosh QB and that schedule. Hopefully people aren't too picky and are just happy with the bowl. They deserve it.

    Agree - this team deserves our support and following regardless the bowl. Just hoping for a strong finish to the regular season. Another win solves/answers a lot of questions. Go Cyclones!

    Even if there were 80 bowl eligible teams we would be taken. We travel extremly well and have one of the hardest SOS in the nation. No way do we get left out.

    I agree. I just think it's fun to keep track of all the teams.

    Updated first post Friday night:

    15 bubble teams. 5 spots open.

    I thought that Miami Change its mind again. I thought they said if the NCAA doesn't say they're out they won't turn it down.

    Haven't heard about that. I only read the story from 3 or 4 days ago saying they weren't going. They changed since then?
