    Big XII teams not bowling..

    Let's talk about the teams individually:

    Teams won't go bowling:

    Baylor - they will be 4-8, not bowling

    Colorado - they will be 3-9, not bowling

    Kansas State - they will be 6-6 assuming they lose to Nebraska, not bowling, their win against 1 FCS team wouldn't count towards bowl eligibility

    Kansas - they will be 6-6, not bowling even with a 6-6 record assuming they beat Missouri and lose to Texas, they would have won 2 conference games - worse 6-6 team than ISU. Also, since the Missouri - Kansas game is at Arrowhead, I wouldn't be surprised if Missouri beats Kansas which would make their record 5-7, not bowling. Very dissapointing for the Jayhawks.

    I think both Texas A&M and ISU will have a 6-6 record and they will get in.

    With scoring only 1 or 2 touchdowns per game I don't see us beating anyone here on out.

    That KU team which is not as good as ISU beat us head to head. Besides that which is actually better doesn't really matter when the selection is made if the records are the same. KU being successful recently and a bigger name than ISU = KU getting selected before us IMO. I'm not gonna argue with anyone who's gonna jump on my back about KU not being a bigger name, but they have a BCS bowl in the last 4 years, people know the school from basketball and my bet is a bowl selection goes to a 6-6 KU team before ISU.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Lets beat Mizzou, but I still like our chances if we don't.

    I thought every team who gets 6 wins goes to a bowl game

    Re: Big XII teams not bowling..

    No chance...0% we get left out with 6 wins. The way our fans support and travel and the pull we have with some big donors, there is NO CHANCE we don't go to a bowl. From what I heard from a big donor yesterday, who I will not name, Shreveport at 6-6, Phoenix at 7-5. And to throw the wrench in, he stated that the "powers that be" will do all they can to get ISU vs. Auburn if we go to Shreveport.

    I just hope we get into one of the Big 12 affiliated bowls. I don't really feel like taking the spot of some MAC team out and play in Kalamazoo.

    KU won't beat Mizzou anyway. I doubt they'll be bowl eligible. I bet we end up in the Texas Bowl.

    I think the Independence Bowl would take ISU before the Texas Bowl selection. Texas Bowl would be thrilled with A&M.

    Yesterday was nearly perfect for ISU. We take care of CU's season. MU upsets KSU. They probably lose to NU and are not bowl eligible.

    NU beats KU. KU will likely get curb stomped by UT next week. I would think MU will be a favorite in KC. KU is seriously looking at 5-7 and not eligible.

    Even if KU beats MU, I disagree with the thought that KU is a "bigger name" and will be picked before ISU since they beat us head-to-head (if we both finish 6-6). ISU's 6-6 is a positive 6-6. The KU fan base will not be motivated to travel if they limp in to 6-6. ISU is much more attractive selection than KU, and the bowls are in no way obligated to consider the head-to-head result.

    I think there is a 95% chance that MU-ISU winner goes to Insight, loser to Independence.

    I am pretty positive we go at 6-6 too, but let's try to get that last win, and the Telephone Trophy. :)
