    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Alamo Bowl moved to January

    This is one of my favorite bowl games, year in and year out. I love it because of the Big 10-Big 12 tie in, plus, I think it might be the best city to actually go to a bowl game for, due to the proximity of everything being downtown along the Riverwalk. When ISU goes to this game, trust me, you will all talk about how much fun it was.

    Re: Alamo Bowl moved to January

    further proves that a january bowl is not anymore better then a december bowl, besides some differences in payouts.

    Re: Alamo Bowl moved to January

    No argument that San Antonio (& Austin) are great cities.

    But do we really need another bowl game between also-ran 4th, 5th, or 6th place teams to take place in January, after the BCS bowls? The bowl season is long enough as it is, we don't need to keep moving more bowls into January.

    This isn't making the Bowl season longer, I don't know what your talking about.

    Re: Alamo Bowl moved to January

    I agree with JDM and MB... is that even possible???!!!

    SA is the bowl I am anxious to get to and watch ISU.

    However and IMO, the BCS game should be the last game played in January AND happen on Jan 1st.

    Re: Alamo Bowl moved to January

    Moving the Alamo Bowl to January is of the utmost importance, 'cause it means the hawks can finish in the middle or just below the middle of the Big Televen, and still have a shot at keeping their "January Bowl" streak going. Isn't that what it's all about?

    Because Monty said it was? So they moved the game up 24 hoursl; it was all ready played late on New Years Eve anyway, so....it's not a big deal.

    I'm willing to bet that ESPN had something to do with it, as the Outback was/is usually their last (or first) broadcast of the season, and they weren't getting their cut of the primetime action.

    Dec. 29 - 7
    Dec. 30 - 3
    Dec. 31 - 2 (1993, 1994 -- the first two games)

    I agree. I love all the bowls - even the minor ones are usually exciting. Who cares when the bowl game is played?
    For those that think there are too many bowls, or too many in January, then...just...don't...watch...them.

    Ugh, the bowl season is supposed to end on Jan. 1. I want a playoff and bowls in their old time spots.

    Talk about watering down drinks.
