    Re: usa today bowl projections

    Isn't the little Ceasers Bowl in Detroit?


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Re: usa today bowl projections

    I think most bowl projections are done by throwing darts at a board, blindfolded.
    And yes, can we just get to 6 wins first?

    Re: usa today bowl projections

    The Big 12 has 8 bowl tie-ins this year; Fiesta, Cotton, Alamo, BWW, Holiday, Houston, Pinstripe, Dallas. Why is anyone predicting a Big 12 team to go to a non-affiliated bowl?

    Tickets for the Military Bowl go on sale this Saturday. Also flights are less than $300 from DSM to DC.

    No, i'm not jumping the gun on this. We plan to visit our son in DC for Christmas.

    Because they think that Kansas is the only Big 12 team worse than us. According to them, there will not be any affiliated bowls left by the time a bowl selects us.

    any bowl game is fine with me. It isn't going to be easy for us to get 6 wins so just take it week by week fanatics

    We should be over this mentality. This team is thinking bigger, and they're going to get six wins in the process of fighting for bigger goals. This isn't 2008 anymore.

    It's also still too early to think about what bowl game we'll go to. Let's talk after Oklahoma, probably after Texas even.

    Lets win 8 and go to the best bowl in modern history. Alamo or holiday would be pretty good.
