    Re: So what's our bowl spot now?

    I wish some big12 teams would go big10 style and get some bowl bans! We could move up by default!

    I would prefer a Texas bowl site over NYC anytime. You are gambling with the weather in NYC that time of year...possibly playing in the snow/freezing temperatures for your bowl game just doesn't seem right.

    Jan. 1 in Dallas is no guarantee, either. They've had their fair share of 40s and precip, too.

    Dallas/NYC? I'll take my chances in Tejas.

    I'll take my chances. Dallas vs nyc in winter isn't even much of a question.

    We've yet to have a cold day in Central Texas this fall. Still hitting the mid to upper 70's right now and some low 80's. Feels like a warm winter in this area this year.

    And to the poster above: I went to NYC and the number of Cyclone fans in NYC was pretty pathetic.
    Yeah, Syracuse won't offically take a large allocation. I think more Cuse fans will go to the game not through the University so the neutral sections will be mostly Orange. But it won't be a huge turnout overall they didn't even open the upper deck for the USC game at Meadowlands Stadium. The one against Kansas St was more of a novelty since it was the first football game at Yankee Stadium (new or old) in decades...and first bowl game in ages it doesn't really count.

    Syracuse will definitely take it since the other Big East ties ins are all against ACC teams which is not highly desirable for obvious reasons. And the #2 and #3 Big East bowls against the ACC are the Belk Bowl in Charlotte (used to be Meinekee Car Care) and Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando (was Champs Sports) so not prestigious the Big East lost the good bowls it used to be in like the Outback. Syracuse will definitely be the Big East school in the Pinstripe.

    It could be anyone from the Big 12 (ISU, TCU, Baylor, WVA, OSU.) ISU would be a lock if they hadn't gone last year so its hard to tell if they'd be chosen again probably would have been WVA if they lost.

    Which would be considered 'really nice weather' in nyc.

    I'm from Iowa that sounds like decent football weather to me.

    The Holiday Bowl is the 27th and is the only game going on.

    Texas Bowl is the 28th at 8 CT and is the only game going on

    Pinstripe is the 29th at the same time as the Hunger Bowl.

    Heart of Dallas would be the worst. 4 games including that one are going on at the same time.

    Re: So what's our bowl spot now?

    1. Qualifying for postseason beats not qualifying. The team played well enough this season to deserve that.
    2. It's doubtful ISU will land an "exciting" placement, and the opponent is going to be a school in a similar boat: Purdue, or Syracuse, or Purdue. Something like that.
    3. No matter where it is, or who it is win the game. It can't hurt.

    At this point, only people who should care which bowl it is are those planning to attend. It will definitely be a low-tier bowl, so it doesn't really matter which one, as long as ISU gets an invite.

    We have been over this many times. A 6-6 Big XII team is a helluva lot better than a 7 win MAC team, WAC team, Sun Belt team, or MWC team. Good grief. A year or two ago we killed a Northern Illinois team that easily won the MAC. There is a HUGE difference when you play tough teams. Just ask TCU and West Virginia. And then consider the non-existent fan base and the non-interest from TV.
