    6-6 May not do it for Hawkeyes bowl hopes

    This from the CR Gazette. Iowa may have to win out to go bowling. Interesting stats here:

    Re: 6-6 May not do it for Hawkeyes bowl hopes

    I was kind of wondering about that too with all the team eligible in the Big 11 this year. If they do go to a bowl, lets hope for Boise. That is where mediocre football teams go to die.

    Ugh.

    I don't care...really. Get the Hawk talk off our board. I understand they are our rival and no - I'm not saying ya can't talk about 'em.

    But damn...we're obsessed!

    I'll admit I'm obsessed. Try growing up in SE Iowa as an ISU fan. You will be scarred for life and develop an unhealthy hatred towards the Hawks.

    Grew up just over an hour from Iowa City in eastern Iowa...was a Hawk...made the conversion at Iowa State. Trust me, I know.

    It's just sad so many put Iowa losing in front of anything else ISU does.

    I'm not obsessed with the Hawks. I just enjoy watching their white trash fans "melt-down". It's a healthy hobby.

    hawkfan has chosen to shove itself into my life. I am just accepting the burden he has laid at my feet.

    You seem to be obsessed with telling ISU fans what to do.

    It seems threads about Iowa always have the most posts. Why is that?

    It always seems that threads about Iowa always bring out alleged ISU fans who don't understand why Iowa State fans have a valid problem with Arrogant, ignorant, and in our face Iowa fans. Why is that?

    (A hint, they've made our lives a living h*ll for years, and now their "joyride" is over. Feel free to discuss among yourselves)

    Re: 6-6 May not do it for Hawkeyes bowl hopes

    I had heard about the 7-5 rule, but I couldn't remember where I saw that, so I didn't include that in my post in the MSU@Iowa thread.

    Here's how I see it:

    The Big 10 already has 4 teams with 7 wins. Illinois and Penn State have 6, but will likely win at least one more. Illinois has Minnesota, Northwestern and Ohio State left. They should beat either Minnesota or Northwestern (maybe both). Penn State has Purdue, Temple and Michigan State left. They ought to be able to beat Temple at least, and probably Michigan State as well.

    That makes 6 teams with 7 or more wins, leaving one bowl berth open to a Big 10 team. That can be snapped up by either Michigan State, Iowa, Indiana or Northwestern getting to 7 wins. It could also go to a 6 win team if none of those teams get to 7 wins (or if Penn State or Illinois don't get to 7 somehow).

    Indiana and Iowa have the easiest road to 7 wins, IMO, even though Iowa needs to win 3 games. Indiana has Ball State, Northwestern and Purdue, and needs 2 wins to get to 7.

    If neither MIState, Iowa, Indiana or Northwestern get to 7, and that one bowl berth goes to one 6 win team out of those 4, I'd imagine it would go to Iowa, since they have the largest and best traveling fan base. This would be the Motor City bowl.

    If Michigan AND Ohio State get to a BCS bowl game, Iowa almost assuredly goes if they get to 6 wins. If Michigan wins out, they go to the BCS automatically as the Big 10 champ, and then Ohio State is an at-large team, fighting with LSU/Georgia, Oregon/Arizona State, Kansas/Missouri/Oklahoma, and UConn for 3 or 4 at-large berths (depending on if Hawaii finishes in the top 14). I'd say their odds are fairly good, but it's hard to say until the season plays out. It would still probably mean the Motor City bowl, but might possibly mean the Insight.com bowl depending on how the Big 10 shakes out.

    I don't think Michigan remotely makes it with 3 losses, so if you're an Iowa fan looking for a bowl game, you need two wins and a Michigan victory over Ohio State, or three wins for almost a sure bowl berth in either Detroit or Tempe. Two wins and a Ohio State win over Michigan might get you to a Big 10 bowl game if the cards fall right, but I'd suspect you'd be out looking for an at-large somewhere, and that's probably not going to happen since there are only a few of those.

    At any rate, odds for a good bowl for Iowa are pretty slim, even if they win out. About the best they could be hoping for is Insight bowl or MAYBE, MAAAAYBE the Champs sports bowl. That's highly unlikely, but possible, I suppose.

    All that being said, I suspect the Big 10 is going to get beat down in pretty much all their bowl games this year. So maybe it's a blessing in disguise if Iowa doesn't end up getting beat up by a MAC team.

    But its Iowa. Every team that they need to win/lose will probably win/lose and they will find a way to a decent bowl game some how. How are the other conferences looking? That is what I would be hoping for as an Iowa fan. Get an at large bid. Iowa would be a pretty attractive at large team.

    Last week EIU fan Rob Howe was on Cotlar's show and I listened late but remember him saying that, with so many 7-5 teams worst case in the Big 11 that the hawks can forget about going to a good bowl at 6-6 trumping any of the 7 win teams just because their maggot fans travel well.

    I would like to see Hawks have to play the Detoit Motor City Bowl. That would be a wonderful trip for hawkeye fans. Like Shreveport.

    The only thing about going to a bowl is that all their younger players will get 1 more month of practice. That helps a team a lot. Even if it is the Motor City Bowl.

    I don't know anyone that puts UI losing before ISU winning. Certainly, we love to see the hawkeye nation crumble. They deserve all the ridicule they get for the way they act. If you don't like this thread, don't open it up. Why do you insist on telling other people what they should and shouldn't think? Just because you have more rep than Rosie O'Donnell has rolls doesn't mean you're the end-all of Cyclone fandom.
