    Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    The more things I read, the more I think we might not go to a bowl game with 6 wins? Can anyone make me feel more confident about this?

    The CR Gazette this morning says that ISU fans should be rooting for Missouri over KSU today. Is that so? I think I'd rather see Missouri lose today so they have nothing to play for next week?

    Can someone smarter than I explain who I should be rooting for this weekend? I just hope that IF we get 6 wins... we get a bowl game... any bowl game. The seniors deserve it, and Rhoads deserves it.

    If we get to 7 wins, we take all the guess work out of who gets picked

    I think 6 will do it, but why leave it to chance?

    Yes. The comeback story with CPR in his first story is a good one and we likely get picked over any non-bcs school.

    I'm confident that 6 gets us in.

    Only a very small handful of 6 win teams don't make it.

    Just root for the Cyclones, and don't worry about anyone else. That's my plan.

    Go Cyclones!!!!!!!!!!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    They probably want KSU to lose out so Nebraska wins the North. That gives ISU some strength of victory gain to the bowl selectors - beating the North Champ on the road.

    I agree with you. I want Mizzou to have nothing to play for next week.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    Why would MU have nothing to play for if they loose today? They have three games left and only need one more win to be bowl eligible. The one thing that gives me confidence against MU is the fact that it's our last game, but they have one more to go that they could be looking ahead to.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    If Missouri loses today I could see them having MORE to play for next week. Similar to how we generally consider this game to be our best chance at getting bowl eligible. Also, If K-State can be kept from getting one win, they won't be eligible will they? Especially with Nebraska next week for them. There wouldn't be any worries on our side then.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    K-State only has 6 wins. They have to win 1 more to be bowl eligible. That's why it doesn't hurt if they lose.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    Just read yesterday that there were only 4 teams last year that had 6 wins and didn't go bowling. None of them were BCS teams, and I don't think there were even bigger mid-majors. We bowl with 6.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    I don't think we deserve a bowl yet with the 6 wins we could have as of today. Good thing there are a good 10-16 teams in bowls every year that also shouldn't be. Either way, 6 wins would be great for the program and CPR.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Will a 6 win ISU team get into a bowl?

    I'm not a fan of any team 6-6 in a bowl game, even the Cyclones. At least as far as just the Bowl game is concerned. That being said though, It gives us a couple of extra weeks of practice. Which with this team, I think is a huge help for us. I guess one thing we've got going for us is the story. We have an opportunity to go from one of the worst teams to a bowl team in a year. In the end, for the kids, if they get six wins this year, it would be tough for them to not get some kind of reward.

    I just want to see ISU win today and give it everything next week. The rest will take care of itself!
