    Bowl Projections (Week 10)

    I know its too early to even think about where we are going, but here are some I have come across...


    Sporting News: Heart of Dallas vs Minnesota

    Ubben (ESPN) Houston Bowl vs Big Ten

    Phil Steele: Music City vs Tennessee

    College Football News: Pinstripe vs Syracuse

    CBS Sports: Heart of Dallas vs Minnesota

    Let me know what else people have seen...

    I'd be okay with Heart of Dallas bowl against Minnesota. Nice location and we'd win that in a blowout.

    Its the old Houston Bowl. FWIW, ESPN's Big 10 blogger has predicted Iowa to go to that, and Ubben, ESPN's Big 12 Blogger is predicting ISU.

    For the love of all that is Holy please please let it be one of these two:

    Heart of Dallas vs Minnesota
    Houston Bowl vs Big Ten

    I will not be sober for at least a week if it's one of these.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    I like that the Houston/Meineke, Pinstripe, and BWW are on Friday night (12/28) or Saturday, Dec 29. We got lucky with decent weather last year in NYC, but would prefer to not go back two years in a row. Dallas bowl is on Tuesday, 1/1, so I guess my preference would be Houston or BWW, but Dallas is a very easy trip.

    Love to see us beat UT, get 2-3 more wins, and maybe get to Alamo bowl (also on Saturday, 12/29).

    I still want to reach at least Holiday Bowl level this season.

    Almost impossible to see that happening. KU is already not bowl eligible, and Baylor will have a tough time making it. If Baylor does not upset Tech, KSU, or OSU at home, they aren't going. Then there is no extra Big 12 team to accept another bowl.

    Of those, only Tennessee sounds (moderately) interesting. We need to win 2-3 more.

    In the conference, it does not matter. Bowl money is pooled and divided among all the schools (after an expense budget). ISU does not directly receive the bowl payout.

    IIRC Big12 distributes bowl money evenly. So it won't matter who pays the most
