    Here's what we need...

    All of these game scenarios will potentially help us in bowl selection. Im not saying any of them will happen, but the more that do happen, the better.

    --Iowa State to win 1 or both of their next 2 games
    --2 Big 12 teams to make the BCS
    --Kansas to beat Missouri (Miz finishes 6-6)
    --Baylor to beat Texas Tech and Texas
    --Texas A&M to beat Texas
    --LSU to beat Arkansas
    --If we lose to OU, we need OSU to pound OU or Auburn to beat Alabama... thus 2 big 12 teams into the BCS as OSU would likely make the NC game.

    what else?

    Re: Here's what we need...

    Assuming LSU beats Arkansas, any way OSU could jump Alabama with a win over an Oklahoma team ranked much higher than Auburn? And we can always hope Georgia knocks off LSU in the SEC title game, and maybe OSU could jump LSU?

    So, if all of those things happen we're going to the National Championship game, right? I mean we beat the number two team in the nation. By default we should be the number two team in the nation.

    If all of those things happened, we would go to the Insight bowl i believe.

    theres almost 0% chance all of those things will happen. In fact, they cannot ALL happen.

    Again, i say, the more of those things that happen, the better. If just 1 of those scenarios plays out, it helps us.

    If we don't go to a bowl game with having one of the toughest schedules in the nation, someone will die.

    I want a rematch against Iowa, or even better if we get a chance to slap around Nebraska. Is this even possible?


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    It all comes down to how many big 12 teams get into the bsc....the way i look at it:

    Win 2 more games with 2 bsc teams = Insight
    Win 2 more games with 1 bsc team = Holiday
    Win 1 more game with 2 bsc teams = Holiday
    Win 1 more game with 1 bsc team = Texas Bowl
    Lose 2 games with 2 bsc teams = Holiday/Texas
    Lose 2 games with 1 bsc team = Texas/Pinstripe

    Most likely scenario is lose 2 games with 2 bsc teams:
    Tositios + other BSC bowl game = OK State / OK
    Cotton = K State
    Alamo = Baylor
    Insight = Texas
    Holiday = Iowa State
    Texas = Texas A&M
    Pinstripe = Mizzou
    Other = Texas Tech

    Meineke Car Care Bowl (#4 v. #4/#5) and Insight Bowl (#6 v. #6) pits Big 12 v. Big Ten teams in their respective bowls. Whether the schools would fall into the right spots for this to happen remains to be seen.

    With that said, the last matchup I want to see is a rematch with Iowa. Would the fan bases really want to travel all the way to Texas or Arizona just to see our Cyclones play the Hawkeyes again? The point of going to a bowl game is to play an opponent you wouldn't normally play.

    Yes, good stuff. However, I believe k state would be into the bcs at 10-2 and Oklahoma would be in the cotton bowl at 9-3.

    Yup, just for demonstration purposes I put Ok / OK State....could care less if its OK or KState as long as its 2 teams in the BSC.

    The biggest game I'm worried about it the Texas A&M vs. Texas game......really hoping Texas wins this game so A&M wouldn't have one more win than us. We can easily pass Mizzou in a bowl game pick, but idk about A&M as well if they have one more win than us.
