    Re: Uh-oh... only one way ISU makes a bowl

    In other news, I swing 12" and just won the lottery.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    The only possible way for that OP to work is if length makes right. Otherwise, a lot of writing for absolutely nothing. Nice work.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    To the OP's credit, the Daily just offered him a job to do the opinion piece.

    You must excuse him. I am sure the OP got a great response the first time he posted this for his fellow fans. All depends on the demographic.

    Re: Uh-oh... only one way ISU makes a bowl

    I originally did it based off of who to root for and at the end I saw 7 teams above 6-6 as at large bowlers and remembered the Hawkeye incident in 2007. Work was done before the 7-5 statement got added and probably should have left it as a prediction of what non-big 12 bowl we make it to. My bad.

    Didn't realize they changed the 7-5 rule (link for change please as I missed that one)

    Starting with the 2010–11 bowl season, the rule that required the selection of seven-win teams before any 6–6 teams was eliminated.[5] The first season of the new rule saw Temple go uninvited despite going 8–4, including a win over eventual Big East BCS representative Connecticut. In the 2011-12 bowl season, the UCLA Bruins were invited to a bowl game despite a losing record (6-7), while 7-5 winning team Western Kentucky and 6-6 non-losing team Ball State did not receive invites.

    Crazy how it's worked out. 6 guaranteed + 2nd SEC + Notre Dame + Oregon. Clemson fans are not going to be happy.

    Dammit, looks like you're right if the Big 12 only gets one in the BCS.

    I had high hopes for the Military Bowl, but I missed their contingency with the MAC. If Rice loses to UTEP, it will still have an open slot to fill, against a team like Bowling Green or Ohio. But Rice is 5-6 and UTEP is 3-8.

    Meanwhile, the Independence Bowl will likely have two open slots to fill as neither of its tie-ins will get made and it has no contingencies. Would likely be ISU against a mid-major - perhaps one of the Louisiana schools from the Sun Belt.
