    Pinstripe Bowl

    After the Holiday, I'm actually rooting to go to the Pinstripe Bowl.

    Yes, it's cold, and not in Texas. But personally I prefer NYC over Dallas, especially at New Years.

    Who's with me?

    Isn't this where K-State went last year? It is looking like we might be in the same Big 12 spot this year.

    I desparately want us to go to Texas for recruiting purposes. Imagine what it would be like to flood the state with ISU supporters and have the opportunity to bring all those recruits (and their families) to a week's worth of ISU events featuring CPR!

    Re: Pinstripe Bowl

    I think we will have a much smaller fan base if we go to NYC which is why I am rooting for Dallas or San Antonio!

    No thanks. We need to go down south because it will impact recruiting and it is warmer, meaning more Cyclone fans!

    Re: Pinstripe Bowl

    I'm not with you.

    Holiday is my first choice. (of the ones i think are actually available, with another win or two maybe insight is in play and id prefer that)
    Then texas bowls. (drivable, warmer, and in recruiting territory)
    Then getting an at large bid (if we end up with more teams than slots) anywhere in the southern half of the US.
    Then pinstripe.

    Really have no interest in paying the costs to fly to NYC on new years ($$$), then hotels there around new years ($$$), to pay very high ticket prices (seriously, go look.. seats between the endzones on the first 2 decks start at $155), at a baseball stadium where the action is way, way far from the seats

    Any bowl is good for the team, but for the kind of money id have to spend on pinstripe, id rather go spend it being warm on a beach somewhere.

    Re: Pinstripe Bowl

    I don't understand why the Pinstripe is even a Big 12 bowl. Who thought that was a good idea?

    The lack of fan attendance will hit the ADs pocketbook as well, when they have to eat all the unsold tickets. I'd take just about any bowl over the Pinstripe.

    Good question. That bowl should be a B10 vs Big east bowl. Or not exist at all, bowls are meant to be in warm climates.

    Re: Pinstripe Bowl

    Anything but pinstripe please. It and the hawaii bowl are the only two I guarantee that I will not be going to.

    Actually flights to NYC are not too bad, especially compared to Dallas or San Diego. However the hotels and tickets are ridiculous. I am hoping for Insight, Holiday or Texas... I think that Holiday may be our best shot especially if we win one of these next two.

    Re: Pinstripe Bowl

    From basically everyone I have talked to they will go to any bowl except Pinstripe.

    It would be hard to want to go to NYC for a bowl game. I cant imagine having any good seats in the house the way they set up the field.
