    Independece Bowl Oppenent

    Everyone seems to lean toward Arkansas, S-Carolina, maybe Georgia.

    Can anyone elaborate on this.

    SEC Bowls-
    1. BCS
    2. BCS
    3. Capital One
    4/5. Cotton Bowl picks first from remaining teams in Western Division; Outback Bowl picks first from remaining teams in Eastern Division
    6. Chick-Fil-A
    7/8. Music City and Liberty work with SEC office to determine order of picks
    9. Independence
    10. Papajohns.com

    Assumed Standings
    1. Florida 12-0
    2. Alabama 12-0
    3.Missippi 9-3
    4. LSU 9-3
    5. kentucky 8-4
    6. Ark 7-5
    7. Auburn 7-5
    8. Georgia 6-6
    9. Tenn 6-6
    10. SC 6-6
    11. No bowl vandy
    12. No Bowl Missi St

    So the Indy Bowl gets Tenn?, or would SC jump them, or would another team drop down?


    .........thoughts.

    There was a drastic difference between the Miami game vs Alabama game. Bringing in an SEC team with its fanbase makes all the difference.

    You might be right. I ran into some Alabama fans at one of the casinos before the game, and the same bunch at a bar after the game.

    Very good fans, and very complimentary of ISU. Even they admited the field goal was good (probably to make me feel better).

    If the game is in the port I will not go! We might as well play the game in Cedar Rapids!

    Tempe-I am there in a heartbeat
    Houston -Probably

    9. Tenn 6-6

    So the Indy Bowl gets Tenn?, or would SC jump them, or would another team drop down?


    .........thoughts.
    Arkansas plays at LSU, so if LSU finishes 9-3 as you predict, Arkansas will be 6-6, not 7-5.

    Georgia will likely get beat by GaTech and finish 6-6.

    Tenn is @ KY and this game is only -1 point spread. So, your 8-4 UK and 6-6 TN is reasonable, but it might finish 7-5, 7-5.

    SouthCarolina is home underdog against Clemson and has lost 3 straight, so 6-6 is reasonable, but again, never know.

    Your order of bowl selection is correct, so it is "most likely" that Independence will pick from the group of SC, Georgia, TN or Ark. I would really prefer to avoid Arkansas, they are #1 in SEC scoring offense. We should hope for SC if we go Indy. They are #11 in SEC scoring offense.
