    OSU closed the gap really really well. They were around 400 pts down in the polls last week and are 50 today. They need to sweep the computers. But I think they can and I think they are in.

    If my thinking is right. OSU is close enough and the computers are going to put em over the top.

    Why would this be good for Isu? Wouldn't it just be good for OSU and the conference if they win?

    OSU getting in the NC would increase the likelihood of KSU also receiving a BCS bid, which would be extra BCS money and would move everyone else up one bowl slot.

    Never mind. I think this means that OSU needs to grab some #1's in the computers. Does that sound accurate. I don't see how ala could be knocked out of #3's for the computers. I thought there would be, but now that I look at it. I don't think they drop any further than 3's in the the computers. OSU's going to have to take some 1's, is that right?

    Wow. Looks like KSU made a move also. Looking like 2 Big 12 for BCS and OSU is national championship game. The computers will decide (they probably have already just not announced).

    Harris poll will be the difference maker as being discussed the bowl situation thread.

    There is still hope to get closer to San Diego and further away from New York on the bowl spectrum. We're not even guaranteed a bowl yet. OSU going to the NC nearly ensures ISU goes to a bowl. Everyone in the BIG XII moves up.

    And hopefully good for Iowa as well. difference in bowls won't be great and an over-rated Michigan gets a little closer to not going to a BCS to go get throttled.

    Yeah, I cannot believe he did not understand that OSU and KSU are in lock step - national voters shaking it up a little on the last week of voting. We need two in BCS to help our chances. If we beat one of the national BCS teams in the big one, that only helps our bowl chances.

    Gaining ground is good. Hopefully the computers put Okie St. second. I'd really like to see them in the NC game.

    I know it should be, but I've been wrongly kicked in the junk to many times to say done deal. No matter how obvious it should be.
