    "Remembering that Iowa State started to come on at the end of the year, outside of Baylor, where's the weak link? Eleven teams will be going into the season with an honest goal of going to a bowl game, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma will be at least as good as last year when they were all in the national title hunt, Texas will be Texas, Oklahoma State will be dangerous, and Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas State should be better. And then there's Texas Tech, who'll assault the record books with a jaw-dropping offensive season, even by its own standards, while it'll play a little D, too."

    Its really nice to see we are starting to get some respect from outside our little fantasy world.

    That is definitely refreshing to see. It goes right along with what Jeremy had to say with his great post today. Our time will come.

    I think technically every team in a conference can make a bowl game if they quality. I know there is a certain amount of bowl games that is alloted for each conference. Now if a conference doesn't have that amount of teams that qualify for a bowl, then they look to other schools in conferences that have a greater amount of teams that qualify for a bowl game.

    The Big 12 has eight bowl tie-ins. If two Big 12 teams make the BCS like last year, we have nine spots that are guaranteed for conference teams assuming we have nine eligible.

    Last year, we had 2 in the BCS, but only had eight eligible teams, so the Big 12 left the Texas Bowl unfilled.

    Two years ago, we had 1 in the BCS, and had nine eligible teams, and KU did not make a bowl at all at 6-6. Same as Iowa at 6-6 this year. You have to be 7-5 to be assured of making an at-large bowl over all other 6-6 teams.

    But it is possible that the Big 12 could theorectically get ten bowl teams if the tenth team finished 7-5 and was eligible for an at-large selection and the Big 12 got 2 teams in the BCS.

    Our football team looks to be much more organized than our basketball team at this point. We may not make that many big plays but wee look organized versus the basketball offense. AA or PB should be throwing the ball deeper more this year also. It would be nice to sweep the nonconference so we do not need that many wins to be bowl eligible.

    It would be nice to sweep the non conference but it would be pretty difficult to do. Nice, but hard none the less. I am hoping for right around 6 wins this year and anything more than that would be pretty amazing
