    Re: MY Big 12 Bowl projection

    Based on your assumptions I'd think this is certainly possible...makes me wish we could have pulled one of the KSU/KU/MU games out, and we'd have an excellent chance at the Alamo.

    Only thing is, Independence is before the Texas in the pecking order, so Texas would be unfilled, not Independence.

    Re: MY Big 12 Bowl projection

    The Independence Bowl gets the 7th pick, otherwise makes sense to me. It would not surprise me to see the Insight bowl take aTm over us.

    It would be pretty sweet and I'm sure very special to Coach to have his first bowl be the Insight, since he was there for Iowa State's last visit.

    3 - Holiday
    4 - Alamo
    5 - Sun
    6 - Insight
    7 - Independence
    8 - Texas

    ISU vs. Minnesota in the Insight Bowl would be a GREAT match up for ISU.

    OSU to Fiesta a pipedream. They can't even sell out their own stadium on senior day. if they can't fill their stadium for a game like this, they won't travel well. and if you don't think that matters, guess again.

    Re: MY Big 12 Bowl projection

    If Okie St is 10-2, they will be in the Fiesta.

    The Big 12 is not going to put up with being stiffed by the bean counters in Phoenix.

    That payday comes to the Dallas or the BCS affiliation does.

    Not a surprise when single-game tickets are $85.

    Re: MY Big 12 Bowl projection

    Because the Fiesta can fall back on their other conference relationship with...nobody?

    Fiesta and Big 12 are partners. Until someone else (Jones/Cotton) makes a better offer.

    The Fiesta without a BCS conference partnership is the Holiday.

    Re: MY Big 12 Bowl projection

    I really don't think we get selected before A&M, so I'd put us in the Independence bowl and A&M in the Insight. Otherwise, I agree.

    I hope you're right. The Insight Bowl would be fabulous!

    Shreveport isn't too appealing. I can smell the cypress pulp mills and oil-refineries air now!
