    Re: Your Sunday Bowl Breakdown

    Best case scenario...ISU can land the Insight Bowl, and Iowa plays in the Fiesta Bowl. Would make for an awesome New Years in Phoenix for the state.

    Yes it is possible but most see it as unlikely.

    Re: Your Sunday Bowl Breakdown

    I don't know where we will go, and if I remember right, we were never really projected to the Insight in 2000 till we got the bid. Maybe we move up slightly if we win next week. I would love to hit the Sun Bowl. It will be interesting where we go, and unless someone has some insight from bowl reps, it will be a surprise I think.

    Of course after next week we should have a much more solid idea.

    Because of fan base? They are currently 12th in the AP poll, so it seems their ranking is high enough. With a game left against OU, that would probably help them a little bit. Would the Fiesta take a lower rated Iowa team simply because of fans? So, a crappy Big 10+1 would get two teams again?

    Yea, there is a still a ton of FB to be played and many outcomes are possible.
    Getting win #6 is simply huge and I think we are about 98%+ to get a bowl invite somewhere.

    But the Big 12 could still get two BCS invites if either (a) OSU wins out, (b) NU upsets UT in conference championship. OSU should be in the discussion with Iowa, Penn State, Boise, and another possible Pac10 team. If OSU makes it, ISU could still get the Insight even if we lose to MU.

    Re: Your Sunday Bowl Breakdown

    As much as I hate to say it, we have to be big Nebraska fans. Nebraska beats KSU -> KSU not bowl eligible. Nebraska wins out and beats Texas in the Big 12 title game -> NU to the Fiesta Bowl, Texas hopefully gets an at large. We move up a spot.

    I definitely hope they beat KSU next week.

    And I am not even sure that OkState would not do a great job of travelling. I have always been impressed with their fanbase at the Big 12 MBB tournament. They played NU in Arrowhead a few years ago and I attended the game with some Husker family friends. OSU had a huge contingent. Fiesta is a traditional Big 12 bowl and not that far driving distance from OK. Add in a significantly better offense and TV sets in Texas, and I am not sure why Iowa fans think they have the inside track to the Fiesta. I think OSU is a real threat (if they win out).

    I think that is the main reason why Iowa fans think they have a shot. Another team that could get thrown into this is Stanford?

    Re: Your Sunday Bowl Breakdown

    I think OSU should win out. Colorado should be no threat to them, and I think they are a much better team than OU right now. Then again, the results of a lot of games in the big 12 this year have been pretty wacky (TT pounding KSU who pounded TAMU who pounded TT)
