    Why we need the win this week end

    To me it is not so much in getting to a bowl game and pleasing the fanbase. The win this week end gets us guaranteed a later bowl game and that much more practice time. We played our best when AA seemed to be in sync with the receivers and the O line was protecting him. Once he got hurt the timing was lost and it takes time to learn this offense. The more practice the better we will get. Just my opinion

    This is must win period. ISU needs to get to a bowl for revenue reasons, practices and exposure.

    According to Rhoads on the call-in show Monday night, there is no restriction on practices for bowl games. The trouble is that it is during the three week window of contact recruiting. A later game would give the team a couple more days/weeks to fit in additional practices.

    So if we lose and dont have any more games we can keep practicing until the bowl games are over?

    Won't make much if any money after expenses. The money gets pooled with the rest of the conference bowl money anyways. That's why we should want 2 Big 12 teams in the BCS every year.

    So I go back to my original post. A bowl game gets us more practice. If we dont win this week end I dont see us getting a bid or its an early December bid which wont give us as many practices.

    A bowl eligible team can keep practicing until the bids come out.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. 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.

    A later bowl may give you more time to practice but not more practices... Just more flexibility in how you schedule your allotted practices.

    Re: Why we need the win this week end

    The chances of us making a bowl at 6-6 are looking better. If Okkie State can win tonight and next week they have a shot at the BCS (better get their act together tonight). Then we have a K State team that has to beat Nebraska in Lincoln this weekend, a KU team amongst a player mutiny/coaching controversy that will have to beat MIZERY in KC next weekend, and a slight chance that A&M might not beat Baylor. Shreveport here we come!.....we win this weekend Phoenix here we come?!?
