    Usa Today just put out their weekly bowl projections and both pickers have Iowa State and Syracuse matching up in the Pinstripe Bowl. One picker has WVU and the other has TCU as the picks for the Holiday Bowl.

    I still think we get picked ahead of WVU to stay in our timezone. These bowl guys aren't idiots - it's about filling the most seats with viable match-ups. WVU to New York seems so obvious.

    Yeah I don't see us getting picked ahead of WVU for the Pinstripe Bowl. Rematch of two Big East teams will sell some tickets.

    Based on recent MBB score predictions, you know quite a bit.

    Playing Rutgers in NY. Then Syracuse in NY next season. Do not want. I think WVU would be obvs selection by them.

    Is Yankee Stadium still there or did Sandy blow it away?

    Re: Usa today current bowl projections

    I'm sure the bowl committees will also keep in mind that the WVU fanbase will not be at all excited about a 7-5 or 6-6 season and is not likely to want to travel far. Nor are they going to be much of a TV draw after losing almost all their conference games. WVU is a bigger "brand" than Iowa State in general, but I don't see them being any more attractive to bowls (other than the Pinstripe) than we are this year.

    Plus after we beat them we'll be 7-5 and they'll be 5-6 and need a win against Kansas to even go bowling.

    If we get 7, I want Holiday. If we get 6, I want Meineke.

    There may also be a residual sense of Big East rivalries to draw on by picking WV.

    I hope so, but if we lose to WVU, I think all bets are off.

    WVU is the better brand name. WVU has Geno Smith, a Heisman hopeful. WVU has a high flying offense to match up against a Pac 12 team.

    The only thing I don't know is how WVU would travel. Not sure the Holiday bowl would select a 6-6 ISU or TCU over a 7-5 WVU. If both TCU and ISU finish 6-6, I hope Pinstripe does not want us back.

    But we control our own destiny. Win out and I think it is Holiday for sure.

    Re: Usa today current bowl projections

    I think ISU tries to pull as many strings as possible to avoid going to NYC again. The logistics of everything, the cold weather, expenses for fans, etc. are big drawbacks of making that a repeat trip.
