    ISU vs. Notre Dame In The Motor City Bowl

    Notre Dame usually wouldn't go to a Bowl like this but they need the cash to buyout Charlie Weis. ISU 17, Notre Dame 13.

    That would be awesome. I would love to be the final nail in Charlie Weis' coffin.

    ND would crush us.

    Motor City Bowl is in DETROIT! That's not a reward, it's like doing time. Even worse than playing on Smurf Turf.

    Re: ISU vs. Notre Dame In The Motor City Bowl

    There's a much better chance of us going to a Big 12 bowl today....someplace warm.

    Selection order:
    BCS - Fiesta
    Cotton
    Holiday
    Alamo
    Sun
    Insight
    Independence
    Texas

    Bowl Eligible Teams:
    Texas - 10 wins
    Oklahoma State - 7
    Nebraska - 7
    Texas Tech - 6
    Mizzou - 6
    Iowa State - 6
    One of Oklahoma/A&M - 6

    -----
    Kansas State - 5 (game left against Neb)
    Other one of OU/A&M - 5 (OU has TTU, OkSt; aTm has BU, Texas)
    KU - 5 (Texas, Mizzou)

    The Big 12 will have 7 of its guarantees filled after tonight. Have a tough time seeing K-State beating Nebraska. We may want to pull for A&M tonight, because OU may not have a chance to win again after tonight. Kansas has a really tough time as well. If things break they way that one might expect, we'll have a good shot at a Big 12 bowl.

    Regardless, we'd want Ok St. to make a BCS bowl, as well as the Big 12 North champ to upset Texas to improve bowl position. You'd think if the bowls picked today:

    BCS: Texas
    Cotton: Oklahoma State
    Holiday: Nebraska
    Alamo: Texas Tech
    Sun: Mizzou
    Insight: OU/A&M
    Independence: Iowa State
    Texas:

    That being said, the bowl I want is the Insight. A win next weekend could make for a beautiful post-Christmas vacation in Tempe. A loss next weekend would likely mean Shreveport.

    Does the Insight bowl have any conditions on who they pick? If we win next week I think we go there for sure, if not it still might be possible, due to our big showing there.

    Thank you for saving me an hour of research. We really need OSU to go to a BCS Bowl. This or just beat mizzou next week.

    I think Nebraska or K-State has a better shot at a BCS bowl than Oklahoma State.

    I think they just follow the selection order.

    Either way, I'm starting to think we need to pull hard against Oklahoma making a bowl.

    If we win next week, whatever happens between Mizzou and Kansas would likely be moot.

    I do think we're pulling for Nebraska the entire way though.

    Nebraska is the only team in the Big 12 with a shot at taking down Texas.

    There was a guy from the independence bowl walking around the north end zone today. He seemed pretty happy about what he was seeing. Of course, he was standing right next to the dance team at the time
