    We were 6-6. You take what you get when your 6-6.

    Yah, because I am sure that was the BCS's master plan-- to screw over Iowa State. By going 6-6 we knew we put ourselves at risk of being an at-large team. To complain that we got "screwed" because a number of games didn't go our way is ridiculous. Beat Tech or WVU and we don't have this problem.

    The bowl is decent. Tulsa agan? Meh... I guess stomp them by more points this time with a better QB at the helm. Go Clones-

    ISU needs to do everything it can to sell this location, and do everything it can to avoid mentioning the team that we already played this year (and play again in September). It is that simple.

    Re: How do you feel about bowl game?

    When you're 6-6, you take what you're given. Don't like it? Win another game and go 7-5.

    Remember, it's not about vaulting into the National Championship picture with an impressive bowl win. It's about getting that extra month of practice and giving our seniors a sendoff game (hopefully Jake can make an appearance), while giving our underclassmen a leg up on next year.

    This sounds like fun. God willing and the Mighty Miss doesn't rise, we'll be there watching it live. Would have gone to Dallas but I'd rather go to Memphis.

    Agree, CysRage sums it up for me nicely.

    This. We all took for granted that we would go bowling this year, but it seems that the BCS stuff at the top put us in a position where we could have been left out. Thanks our reputation for travelling and JP's negotiations, we are going bowling.

    It could have been Shreveport and ULM.

    Re: How do you feel about bowl game?

    No issue with the Liberty Bowl at all, or Memphis for that matter. Maybe even more than we deserve going 3-6 in the B12.

    Opponent, however, is a pretty big letdown. That's no offense to Tulsa, the Liberty Bowl or our AD; just the way the cookie crumbles. Even playing UCF instead would've had me 5x more excited for the game.

    Re: How do you feel about bowl game?

    There are some Okie State fans claiming on the WVU board they wish they were going to Memphis instead of Dallas. Apparently not everyone wishes to go to that cow town and play a p poor Big team. Once again JP got us in a bowl that is very desirable. I know we are going to the bowl, and looking forward to having as much or more fun as we have had at other bowls. If you have never gone to a bowl game, I highly recomend it. Best of all this one has a lot to offer.

    Re: How do you feel about bowl game?

    Good bowl game and I also like the location. Obviously a little disappointing playing Tulsa again but I'm pretty confident we'll win and you have to be happy about the Clones going to a bowl game and winning no matter who the opponent is
