    Optimistic view

    Greg on Scout says we are are going to be 7-5 and off to the Holiday Bowl. I cannot see that happening the way he stated it. I have like all his stuff up to this point but I think he was borrowing some cool-aid from some of you guys. Stated we will beat both Kansas and Missouri in that but loose to K-State, kNU. Any thoughts?


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    I didn't see any of this stuff, but I like it....

    I don't think we will beat either KU or MU, but we will beat KSU and NU.

    Regardless of how optimistic a 7-5 record for this team is, I think a team would need to be ranked to have a 7-5 record get them to the Holiday bowl. I just don't see that happening.

    Re: Optimistic view

    The Holiday Bowl is next behind the Cotton Bowl in terms of pecking order in picking what team they want there. A Big XII team would have to be one of the top 3 or 4 teams to go to the holiday bowl so i just don't see it at all...
