    Re: CBS Bowl Projections

    Just curious, it seems like the general opinion is that ISU would/will be selected before A&M for a bowl game. Why is that? So that A&M can play in Texas?

    Yes. The Indy and Texas would make a deal which would likely end up benefitting both bowls.

    The Texas Bowl wants A&M at all costs since its in Texas and they would travel well. However, A&M wouldn't travel as well to Shreveport since this is a huge year for ISU but a terrible year for A&M and Shreveport is a pretty bad destination.

    Now if A&M and ISU are up for the Insight bowl, it would probably be a toss-up since it is a better destination and A&M might travel well to Arizona, but I'd like ISU's chances based on our history with that bowl.

    Re: CBS Bowl Projections

    I'd LOVE to go to Shreveport at this point but to play South Carolina? We might not score 10 points against that defense. Although playing them would be more exciting than a Kentucky match-up.

    I want Minnesota in the Insight Bowl at all costs. That would be a great bowl and a great match up for ISU.

    I hate to say it, I would rather see OSU in the Fiesta against Boise but Iowa is the more intriguing match up.

    Agreed, a Decker-Less Minnesota is about as good a matchup as I can see. Not only that, but I think there is a lot of untapped potential rivalry between the Clones and Gophers.

    I couldn't agree more! The location is the best versus Texas or Ind. Bowls and the Gophers would be a good opponent. Also, it would have a local angle for me.

    Independence would make me happy. We'll see. I hate having to wait till the conference championship game.

    Any bowl game is a good bowl game, especially since we are a 6 win team in the middle of a bowl drought.
