    ISU one of only three Big 12 teams not going bowling

    It is extremely depressing that ISU joins Colorado and Baylor as the only Big 12 teams to not go to bowl this year.

    I thought that KU also wasn't going to a bowl?

    I don't like sitting in cold Iowa in December either, but it is great that 8/12 of the teams are....

    so much for the big 12 being "weak"

    My bad, Kansas is bowl eligible but did not get selected to a bowl.

    Unacceptable. We should fire McCarney... Oh wait.

    The Big 12 has 8 bowl tie-ins. As long as 8 Big 12 teams are bowl-eligible, there will be 8 teams going bowling. 8 teams went last year, it just isn't that hard to get enough teams to fill all the spots.

    Speaking of bowls. Kansas State is MAD because Time Warner does not show the NFL Network game in Kansas City and many other metros. The TEXAS BOWL weith KStae and Insight Bowl are on the NFL Network. Better buy the full cable package or plan top go to the bars to watch. Maybe we really do not have 8 tie-ins when one isd shown on NFL Network.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Oh, so you mean a 6-6 kansas team didn't get to go to the Alamo to Play Michigan or Ohio State?

    Exactly!....A true testament to how money decides who goes to bowl games. Forget about the underdog, or the darkhorse....give it to a team that was one of the biggest underachievers in the entire country this year over a team who fought down to the wire winning 3 of their last 4 only to be shut out of a bowl game because teams like iowa, miami, and florida state produce more revenue for bowl games. But, I guess, that's how it works and there's nothing we can do about it.

    Come down off the ledge, my friend. The past is the past. Just look at the future of the program!

    We are hoping a lot out of our future. Not sure if we can live upto it. I am trying not to have so much expections. All I want for next year is more than a mediocre team - a team who could be 4 plays away from playing for the BCS title, exact opposite of this year.

    Any word of the backup qtrback from Texas? Any idea where he maybe headed? Some say Louisville??

    Everything I've heard has Snead going to TCU. Given the extra year he'd have to sit out to transfer in conference, there is no way he'd come here.
