    Earliest Bowl Projections I've ever seen **ISU included**

    Early projections for 2012-13 bowls – College Gridiron 365 Blog – Orlando Sentinel

    I almost laugh at myself for posting this but the Orlando Sentinel posted their 2012-13 CFB bowl projections. We're on there playing Northwestern in the TicketCity Bowl.

    Side question, although this is a joke of a projection being so early, can anyone really remember the last time the Cyclones were actually projected to go to a bowl preseason?

    Couldn't be that long ago. McCarney had a couple of teams that were probably predicted to go to a bowl, pre-season. Definitely during Seneca's senior year.

    Couldn't be that long ago? You do realize it is 2012. The last good McCarney team was 05 correct? I doubt we were picked for a bowl in the preseason that year after the collapse of 04.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Its been a long time, but i think we wouldve been predicted to go to a bowl in 06 as well. That year sucked, but preseason we were being picked to finish 2nd or 3rd in the north, iirc, which wouldve been likely for a bowl.

    Sorry, didn't mean to jump down your throat. I was in High School then, so it seems like a long time ago. I mean that is what, Over 30% of my life?

    What hotel is everyone staying at? Do you know if the NCC is having a pep rally?

    No problem. I'm not that old, but Mac's last years still seam like yesterday to me for some reason. Maybe it's the horrendous disappointment of missed FG's still sticking with me.

    I guess my first two years of college under the Chizik Administration really screwed up my perception of time in relation to Iowa State Football.

    That could be part of it, as well. The Chiz's 2 years I have tried to forget.
