    In the hunt for BCS bowl?

    You guys typically say I'm crazy when I state the obvious: if we were in the big 10, we'd get a rose bowl bid, this year.

    Now, that we've beaten Nebraska in their house, and would obviously beat the best team in the weak 10 in any venue, are we going to end up winning the big 12 N and end up playing in the Orange/Fiesta Bowl?

    Who is going to stop us?

    The whiners? Usually when teams win they aren't whining. Might be time to put down the bottle of Boone's and head to bed big dawg.

    Hmmmm, might want to get back in bed before your mom and dad know you aren't sleeping like you should be, isn't Sunday school going to be tough to get up for when you're online so late at night?

    Re: In the hunt for BCS bowl?

    whoah, easy there killer. we'll be lucky if we get 7 wins at this point. We only have 2 more games that are winnable, and seeing how those 2 teams are improving, that's getting debatable. We have what you would call "an upset." That means, we won a game we probably shouldn't have won. BSC... not this year, give it time and hopefully we'll get ours.

    In another thread I mentioned suspected "fake fanatics" who pose as ISU fans and make ridiculous statements to make us look stupid. I have suspected you for a long time now, and I am calling you out.

    If you truly are an ISU fan that has just had way too much kool aid tonight (with a little too much vodka in it) then I apologize. But I don't think that is the case.

    What is so stupid about this idea?

    I can really see us doing this. We are the best team in the Big 12 North, and we can beat the winner of the Big 12 south. Why is that so hard to believe?

    BCS very possible/probable.

    Huh? We lost to KSU and KU, so we can hardly claim we are the best team in the B12 North. We can beat the winner of the B12 South? Really? We can beat Texas even though we can't beat KSU or KU?? (BTW - KU got pounded by OU today..)

    It's a stupid idea because your arguments have no merit.

    We are not even close to making it to a BCS bowl.
