    Re: We are NOT Bowl eligible yet

    I think we make a bowl either way, but it may not be a Big12 tie-in.

    Re: We are NOT Bowl eligible yet

    Why in the hell do people think we wouldn't be in a bowl? Only four other teams in the Big 12 can get eligible, and the odds are up against three of them (KSU, KU and Baylor).

    A&M will likely become eligible, but I don't see Baylor winning two, KSU beating Nebraska, or KU beating Texas or Mizzou. Even if A&M and someone else happened to get eligible, OK St in a BCS bowl would also guarantee us a berth.

    The only real game to watch if we lose to Mizzou is the Border War. And with everything happening at KU, who knows how they will play in Arrowhead?

    Re: We are NOT Bowl eligible yet

    With so many unbeatens, ie. Florida, Alabama, Texas, Cincinnati, Boise State, & TCU, this ought to free up some bowl positions for Iowa State!

    these 6 teams have a combined 60-0 record. Some conferences might not have enough bowl-eligible teams due to this event. So if say, the Mountain West cannot come up with enough bowl-eligible teams to fill their bowls due to Boise State clobbering everyone in sight, that might free up a spot for a 6-6 Iowa State team! (should it come to that)

    The SEC especially should have some free spots what with Alabama & Florida giving every SEC team +2 losses.

    Re: We are NOT Bowl eligible yet

    We make it to a bowl game win or lose.

    How many 6 win BCS teams have missed a bowl game, especially with the "story" we've got to go with it?

    Re: We are NOT Bowl eligible yet

    Yeah, the dozen national sports news outlets/reporters who've picked us for the Indy (a few Insight), they're ALL wrong, all of them. Thanks for keeping it real DM Rag?

    With a COY candidate who beat NU in Lincoln for the first time since '77?

    Iowa laid an egg at home vs. directional michgan (illinois?) in thier last game and they're in the B10 with different tie-ins

    ISU is going to a bowl at 6-6 or 7-5.

    "Covering their rear-end." Or, as some call it, correcting a mistake.

    God forbid you guys ever make a mistake and then try to correct it.

    Last year there were 4 teams at 6-6 that did not make bowl games, and none of them were BCS teams. I think we'll be fine, win or lose, but winning would sure be a boon to our position.

    So whoever wrote the initial headline didn't realize ISU is already bowl eligible and corrected thier mistake? Yeah, that's better.
