    also, according to sagarin lt's sos was #109 while niu's was #127 so dont kid yourself about la tech playing a much better schedule

    that said, la tech outscored their opposition by ~150 pts this year while niu outscored theirs by ~280 pts

    its pretty obvious which team was more dominant against their terrible schedules
    la Tech by 7+

    That has nothing to do with it. Would ISU finishing 7-5 have helped OU go to a BCS game? There were many hoping that ISU would be an at large rather than go to HoD. The Liberty Bowl is fine. The Big 12 getting snubbed is what is bs.

    It stinks to play the same team 3 times in 2 years, but Memphis is 10 times better than Detroit or Shreveport would have been.

    Beale Street in Memphis on New Year's Eve isn't too shabby really.
    What he said Beale Street is freaking awesome

    Can we cancel our rematch next fall with tulsa now? Surely one of these barely div-1 teams that the WAC is dragging up from FCS might want to come take a paycheck in ames.

    Re: ***Official What Bowl Are We Going To Thread***

    People here complain about a bowl game in NYC, they complain about Shreveport and Memphis...

    At least the Clones get to play again this year.

    6-6 year after year is going to take a toll on our fan traveling reputation.

    If ISU's requirements were to barely beat Kansas and lose to Iowa in the same season, ISU would be turning down the Orange Bowl because we were sick of it.

    Beats Shreveport, that's for sure.

    Can't say I'm super excited about playing Tulsa again though

    It would have made a lot more sense for ISU to play Purdue in Dallas and OSU to play Tulsa in Memphis.
