    Insight.com is best case senario IMO but a match up with the Dogs wouldn't be a bad consolation prize.

    Re: More Bowl Projections (2 Links)

    I really think we are better off crowd-wise if we are in the Independence Bowl or a bowl in Texas.

    How would the crowd be better in Shreveport than Phoenix? Much, much easier to get to phoenix (cheaper flights to a major airport) and the destination is much better.

    Though i would agree that texas would probably be the best crowd wise though.

    Talking from a students point of view it would be a lot cheaper to drive to Shreveport than fly to Arizona in pretty busy airline season. That is the only reason I say that and I know there will be a number of kids that will go no matter what, but I think there will be some that go to Shreveport that wouldn't go to Arizona.

    Id rather drive to phoenix than drive to shreveport. At least theres something at the end of the road you're looking forward to getting to.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: More Bowl Projections (2 Links)

    I think the chances are good to head to Phoenix even with a loss this weekend. If KSU loses to Nebraska and KU loses to Texas and Mizzou, that eliminates those two teams. But this bowl stuff is about filling the seats, even if Mizzou finishes in front of ISU, if Iowa has a chance at the Fiesta Bowl, I think ISU goes to the Insight. Think of how many people would in Arizona from the state of Iowa, this is a no brainer for the Fiesta and Insight bowls, both played in the same city and stadium, Iowa fans would go to the ISU game and four days later, vice versa. This is the best payout for ISU too, would be nice to catch a break even if it means sharing the stage with the Hawks.

    If Iowa and Iowa State both went to bowl games in Phoenix, how many people do you think would go to both? I know I would...

    Re: More Bowl Projections (2 Links)

    I've been to bowls in Phoenix, Houston, and Shreveport. Phoenix is the best destination IMO.

    There is a large alumni base in Phoenix and, as the article mentions, plenty of Iowans in Arizona that time of year.

    As much as I'd hate to spend a weekend with Hawkeye fans, I do think there are a lot of people who don't hang out on CF that would probably go down with tickets for both games and pull for both Iowa schools.

    I think we both have the same shot of going to Phoenix. Slim. Not one mention of OSU in that article. Iowa needs help staying in the top 14 of the BCS and eligible for an at-large.

    I would. And I'd cheer for both. I hate the Hawks when they play ISU, but will always cheer for the state of Iowa over anything else. I don't understand why people wouldn't want both our schools to be top programs and a top rivalry.

    Projecting all 34 bowl matchups - Stewart Mandel - SI.com

    Don't know if this one has been posted yet but thats probably the best matchup we could ask for if we play an SEC team.
