    Re: Will we make a bowl game this year?

    Originally I didn't think we'd make a bowl game this year. But then I remembered that they added 2 bowl games this year. If that is the case, then that's 4 more teams going to a bowl game.

    I do see 6 wins on the schedule. SDS, Kent, Iowa, UNLV, Baylor, & K-state. Maybe pick off TxA&M and/or Colorado. It could happen. We could go somewhere warm this winter. Anywhere but Boise.

    I think we get 4-6 wins but leaning more towards 4 or 5. I'd love to make a bowl game, but I'd settle for 4 or 5 wins and no horrible losses. I think we come out of non conference at 3-1 and then pick up two in conference play and maybe come close to grabbing #6 somewhere

    Re: Will we make a bowl game this year?

    4-5 wins seems realistic. Can't see us making a jump from 3 wins to 6 or 7 in a year where we are replacing a lot of key positions. Everyone can be enamored with Arnaud and Bates but the bottome line is they are both inexpirienced and will take their lumps once in awhile. Even if the offense does improve we took a lot of hits on the defensive line and linebacker positions with graduation too.

    Recipe for Bowl Game.

    Must get 4 non-Conference wins. 2 of those are on the road.

    Pick off KU, Baylor and KSU.

    I predict we go 5-7, and we have a 1,000 yard rusher this year.

    Re: Will we make a bowl game this year?

    I dont understand the argument that we will be bad because we have inexperience QB's. Hell we had a a fourth year QB the last year and we were absolutely terrible. Anything can happen

    The point being we are relying on that QB's 2 backups to come in and do a better job right away... I hope at least 1 if not both are better than Meyer but to expect a 3-4 win improvement from them this season is asking a lot.

    Could they be left out with 6? Isn't there an extra big12 bowl game this year?

    All of the above are true, but you left out Iowa. The team with a proven poor QB, no RB's in spring, holes in the line and new secondary. I don't care where the game is, I think ISU rolls. Perhaps that will be the game where we get a deffinitive #1 QB

    I see maybe 3 wins, and thats a big MAYBE. No bowl game for sure. But who cares, ISU has their bowl game every year versus their big brother, which they usually lose. Iowa has owned ISU in the last 5 years, winning 3 of 5...and they own the all time series 36-19.

    If you put a CyBookie on this I'll bet 'No' and it will guarantee us a bowl game
