    I really don't think we're going to make it to any Texas bowl unless it is the TicketCity bowl. Not with all the Texas schools that are bowl eligible.

    Whats the best case for Iowa State if we go 6-6. Do we want Texas to beat ATM, that way they would maybe the Texas Bowl would skip over ATM and pick us since ATM is on their way out the door?

    Need Missouri and Tech to lose for sure. Not sure if I should root for A&M or Texas.

    Yes, I think that would be the best scenario. Or we win 1 more, the Texas Bowl gets ATM and the Holiday bowl chooses us. But if we're wanting to go to Texas for a bowl we want ATM to win.

    If Texas beats A&M, it will be Texas heading to the Holiday bowl. Remember, they're ranked #25, and they're "Texas"

    He asked by making us 6-6, we will never go to the Holiday if we're 6-6. We need to win one more and ATM to beat Texas and then I'll think we're headed to the Holiday.

    Remember the 2009 final standings, Missouri finished the year #5 and fell all the way to the Texas Bowl (behind 2 teams, Iowa State and 7-5 Oklahoma).

    No way. Houston is an A&M city, not a Big XII city. They could care less if A&M goes to the SEC. If the opportunity comes to fill the stadium with A&M fans they'll go for it.

    But it doesn't quite work that way. Would A&M turn down a Holiday bowl bid? Holiday bowl gets their pick b4 Texas bowl.

    The only way we get to the TicketCity bowl is if ConfUSA and the MAC have no eligible teams to fill that slot. Texas bowl has a higher probability, IMO. Although I think the TicketCity bowl is one of the best possible bowls for us right now.

    If we go to the Ticket City Bowl we can tell Hawkeye fans that we went to a January Bowl game too!!

    I guess that depends on how they balance attendance versus economic impact. Having a bunch of A&M fans drive to the game and then turn around and go home doesn't do anything beyond ticket sales. In a perfect world they would pack the stadium with out of town people that buy tickets, eat at restaurants, stay in hotels, etc. ISU won't sell as many tickets but they will bring in more people from out of town.
