    Turning Down Bowl Bid

    Per Kelly Beaton at the Waterloo Courier

    Rumor has it, ISU may have to turn down bid to Dec. 19 New Mexico Bowl since ISU's semester doesn't end till Dec. 18...

    That's what I thought but at the same time that would be interesting.

    It wouldn't be a good fit, but they'd make it work.

    Re: Turning Down Bowl Bid

    I think this came up a couple years ago regarding Iowa going to bowl games. Some sort of by-law stating (not sure on details) that athletes cannot participate in competition if it involves missing finals week. I can't remember if that was a UI rule or Board or Regents rule, but I know it came up when there were projections of Iowa going to pre-Christmas bowls.

    Re: Turning Down Bowl Bid

    don't we have to become eligible for a bowl before we can turn down going to one?

    posts like this annoy me. its a discussion board. the OP presented a hypothetical for DISCUSSION. if you dont like it, dont read it... but this whole 'fans cant talk about bowl games until the team has gotten 6 wins' is getting old.

    Probably the best thing to do for our scholar-athletes.

    These young men are at Iowa State for an education.

    Studies first.

    How about you stay away until we win another game. Then we can discuss.

    I'm going to put in my regular remarks on Iowa Board of Regents-related posts... "I hate you."

    I guess we should decline road games too where our players miss classes on Friday. Stupid and will not happen. I'm guessing whoever that guy is he's a hawk?

    Cubs/Cards is a rivalry 12 months out of the year, but I actually like Cubs/Cyclone fans this time of year.
