    3 reasons i like the Pinstripe

    1) its on espn and the whole world can see it (insight bowl in 2009 on vs. - few could see it)
    2) espn will promote the heck out of it (insight bowl on vs in 2009 - espn never promoted it)
    3) we can compete with Rutgers

    FIFY Totally agree with you. NYC will be great! Still deciding if we want to go.

    This = trying too hard to put lipstick on a pig. Not disagreeing, but won't make up for having to go to NYC.

    Re: 3 reasons i like the Pinstripe

    NYC on New Years will be a great experience for our players. It's not like they aren't used to the cold and it will be a big disadvantage. This is for them, and they will have a blast there. Quit being ******* and just wear multiple layers. Maybe jump up and down and cheer if you are not smart enough to wear enough to keep warm?

    Schools don't get the money, conference does. All conference schools get equal share, even if we did not go to a bowl game, we get our share of $$.

    Re: 3 reasons i like the Pinstripe

    I like that the game is on ESPN and it is the only game one during that time slot. I know that a majority would all have liked to be invited to another game, but the more I think about this game the more excited I get. I like the fact that we get to face another BCS conference opponent which will be played in their backyard. From a game standpoint, it seems like their rushing defense may be suspect and ISU has deep stable of capable running backs that can carry the load. Also, this will be probably the first time all season that ISU will be pretty healthy.

    I will be surprised if he is. We probably don't need SJ. We need a healthy White, Woody and Hollis for sure.
