    ESPN Bowl Projections

    Kansas State in a bowl before us? Ouch!

    Can't really argue 'til we win the next 2 games I guess...

    I also think it sucks for the Big XII that the winner of the conference is most likely to match up with a mid-major undefeated (Boise State). Takes some excitement away from the BCS bowl IMO.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    On ISU, they don't deserve a bowl projection at this time.

    On the BCS stuff, I'm not sold there will be more than 1 undefeated team yet. It may very well happen, but I think this is the year we're looking at another BCS title game controversy.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    You gotta think ISU can surely win 3 of their last 5 games. Nothing is obviously a guaranteed victory, but at the least they should all be close. Hopefully Meyer and Blythe can carry the offense in a game or two. They haven't done that all year yet. Blythe is waiting to explode at some point. Also with McCarney calling out the D-backs in the team meeting will help them step it up even though losing Jackson hurts badly. I hope they can beat Colorado, Kansas, and K-State. Maybe they'll play with more emmotion and fire since the Tech game is homecoming. Possibly pull an upset against Mizzou? I can see them winning 5 in a row but i can just as easily see them going 1-4. I'm hoping for the best.

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    I think I read somewhere that you need 7 wins to become bowl eligible. I may be wrong but I think thats what I heard.

    Anyone else get the feeling this a mercy prediction just because we have fans that "travel well"?

    Re: ESPN Bowl Projections

    So, whats so wrong with that. It means that the Big 10 wont have enough bowl teams and the Big 12 will have more than the 7 they are allowed.

    I guess at this point I would be happy to still see us go to ANY bowl...
