    Who cares.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Everyone should also throw Christmas trees out on the field after every touch down.

    (What else goes with Holiday???)

    Crap. Looks like I'll have to sneak away to my office and watch it on ESPN3. I'm assuming it'll be on there, being that it's being aired on ABC?

    I think ISU-wvu has about the same combined win total as the nationally televised iowa-Nebraska game beforehand...why is that game nationally televised?

    this game time was set when the game was moved to Black Friday. At that point in time WVU was 8th in the polls. T me the match up is better than the other options. Seriously who wants to see thE Hoks and Fhuskers battle it out for eternal gayness and that wonderful Hy-Vee trophy....

    Re: Holiday Bowl rep will be in attendance vs WVU

    holiday bowl would be amazing, because San Diego meets my 350 mile radius criteria for side trip to vegas.

    on a side note, phoenix meets that criteria also.

    Because they are playing on Friday. There are only 14 games scheduled on Friday some of which include Syracuse v. Temple, Ball State v. Miami (OH), N. Illinois v. Eastern Michigan, Marshall v. Eastern Carolina, Buffalo v. Bowling Green, and Central Michigan v. UMass. Add in the facts that only 5 ranked teams play and ISU/WV is the only Big 12 game and you've got the recipe for a good TV slot for ISU.
