    Is anyone else getting nervous

    about our bowl situation? KU is up 14-3 and are looking pretty good. If KU wins 9 teams will be eligible with only 8 bowls. I would feel much better if Mizzou just wins and we are guaranteed a bowl game! I don't want to wait and see if Nebraska beats UT. Does everyone still think we would still get picked ahead of KU anyways? Sorry, just getting a little panicky!

    I think we will get picked before KU, but it certainly wouldn't shock me if we ended up the "odd man out" and got sent elsewhere.

    Re: Is anyone else getting nervous

    I think that we would but there is no guarantee. Yes. I am getting nervous because nothing is playing out in our favor right now. The day is still early though. I still like our chances of going somewhere but this is all hard to watch.

    Lew Perkins is getting nervous too.

    Like usual, ISU fans rarely get things to fall into place for us. If there is a way for ISU to get screwed, it will happen.

    Actually, I think the Mangino situation will help ISU get picked before KU.

    If you're waiting for that to happen my friend, I'm afraid you'll be waiting a long time.

    Will there be an elsewhere? I think there are about four bowls that will have to pick "fill-in" teams, and Notre Dame would be one with three left.

    I don't think it will. Just saying a don't want that to HAVE TO happen for us to a bowl (two Big 12's in the BCS).

    Mizzou has to win this game. We have no shot at getting an at-large bid.

    Re: Is anyone else getting nervous

    I'm kinda 50/50 on if the last bowl pick would be us or KU. They did beat us, but they also lost 6 straight.

    I do feel very confident in us going somewhere if we don't get a B12 bid, although it may not be a desirable location. Having another bowl on our record is better than not having a bowl.

    I think the Pizza Bowl in Detroit will have a spot open. Also wouldn't be surprised if ND goes 6-6 (loses tonight) fires Weis by Tuesday and say no thanks to a bowl game.

    Re: Is anyone else getting nervous

    I think that KU is definitely ahead of us in the pecking order, and all this "they won't take KU because of the Mangino situation" is wishful thinking. KU won a BCS game two years ago.

    Yes, consider me nervous.
