    Espn's thoughts of bowls

    Either way I would enjoy these bowls for our boys! What is everyone else's thought?

    I like the idea of sending TaM to NYC. Let them freeze their arses off!

    Re: Espn's thoughts of bowls

    Any info coming from ESPN should be taken as seriously as info from the Enquirer. I don't believe any info from them until there is a second source.

    Re: Espn's thoughts of bowls

    I'll obviously be happy with any bowl, but if I had a choice, I would hope we don't get UCLA. Is it too much to ask to play a team with a coach and at least a .500 record?

    I mean, it would be fun, it would be different, but sending a bowl team home with a 6-8 record is a little...I don't know. Not so tasty.

    You have to remember these are projections. They aren't reporting anybody is going anywhere yet.

    I'm surprised they reported these without a second source. What too early?


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    I like both of those projections. I hope we are not in NYC and I hope we don't play Iowa.

    And ESPN clearly has a bias towards its own interests.

    Re: Espn's thoughts of bowls

    People are seriously asking for "second sources" on opinions? :facepalm:


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Espn's thoughts of bowls

    I am hoping and praying for Ticket City in Dallas Jan. 2. I could actually go, C'mon bowl gods. Wont complain if go 7-5 and get a better bowl like the Holiday Bowl though.

    Re: Espn's thoughts of bowls

    Brad Edwards basically contradicts himself.

    He has Houston slotted for a BCS bowl... but if that happens, the C-USA won't have a team to fill the TicketCity Bowl... which has a provisional agreement with the Big XII to take their 8th selection if a primary bowl partner conference can't send a team.

    So no, there will be no Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

    I'd be very ok with either a game in Texas or California. Never been to either state. Whoo bowl trip!
