    **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    Bowl snobs... We were 9th of 10 teams. We were 3-6 in conference. We are a mediocre team. AND YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT EXTRA PRACTICES AND A FRIGGIN' BOWL GAME!

    We are ISU and we're going to sleep in the bed we made for ourselves. 6-6 and going to a bowl game and probably damn lucky to be...

    Let's get over ourselves, shall we?

    It's not the bowl game itself, it's the opponent. It's not the opponent itself, it's the playing them 3 times in 2 years.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    I agree with OP. Maybe people forget how bad things were through out most of the 80s and 90s? Too young to remember perhaps?

    I'm not excited about this bowl but I'm not upset with it either. 6-6 and 9th in the conference with bad home losses to Tech and WVU set the tone for this. It happens. Make the best of it and win the damn game.

    The issue isn't a bowl game, it's WHO we are playing. My bad for not being hyped up to play a team we beat this year AND will see again next fall.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    Great post! Couldn't agree more.

    We go 6-6, 3-6 in our conference, AND finish 9th out of 10 teams, and yet we are complaining about spending New Year's Eve on Beale Street in Memphis and playing on ABC.

    I don't get it? We probably actually deserve worse than this really.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    I see less people complaining about the bowl so much as the competition. No one is excited to play the same team twice. Especially when that team is not at least from a major conference.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    I'm happy to be in the Liberty Bowl. A bowl with some tradition, but I do agree the opponent isn't super exciting.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    NOBODY is complaining about the Liberty Bowl. If it were UCF, we'd be happy. ANY OTHER TEAM than Tulsa and we'd be happy.

    Tulsa is just not gonna get this fanbase excited.

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    I said this is another thread, but the Liberty Bowl is a damn good bowl for a 6-6 team. Seriously, a New Years Eve bowl on ESPN during the day? I'll take it

    Re: **OFFICIAL** Who do you Think WE ARE?

    If we hadn't already played Tulsa, it'd be a different story. I have respect for the team, but since we played them already it's hard to feel excited for it.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Nobody is complaining about Memphis. They are complaining about Tulsa. How do some of you (OP mostly) not understand that?
