    Which is more likely: NCAA Tourny or Bowl?

    I liked the thread below discussing, between an NCAA Tournament appearance and a Bowl game, which one people would choose. Now, which one do you think is actually more likely for next year? Or do you think we might actually get both?

    I didn't make it a poll, I think we've had too many of those lately.

    Neither is very likely, but I will go with a bowl, I think the bball team is a long ways away from the NCAA, like maybe 2 guards away.

    Bowl is much more likely. 6-6 gets you in (usually :) ).

    I believe tourney is more likely then bowl. We could have made it to the tourney this year if we were more consistent and turned a few of the loses into wins.

    Unfortunately I see us going to a couple of bowls before revisiting the tourney...

    Agreed, I do not see post season in ISU's future next season in basketball.

    I am pretty darn excited for the future in the football program. I have a feeling we are going to see a Big 12 North Championship within the next 3-4 seasons.

    Re: Which is more likely: NCAA Tourny or Bowl?

    With the way our schedule is set up for next year I would say a bowl game is more likely at 6-6 or 7-5. Depending on the growth during the off season though a tourny bid could also be possible. I think we deserve one or the other just for everything both teams have been through in the last 2-3 years.

    I just don't see the tourney happening for a bowl actually does. Speaking of which, when was the last time we were in the tourney?

    2005. We beat Minnesota in the 8-9 seed game and then got smoked by UNC who then went on to win it all. We were in Charlotte but we might have as been playing in Chapel Hill for the number of UNC fans there. We did get the Duke fans though. Not because they were rooting for us, but they were rooting against UNC.

    I think a bowl will happen sooner just because the odds are more in our favor. 3 Non-Conference Wins and then 3 wins in conference play (not unreasonable) and we've got a shot at going. MBB we need a ton more wins and BB isn't nearly as crazy as FB is for upsets.
