    ESPN says Texas Bowl...

    ESPN says ISU to the Texas Bowl.

    NCAA College Football BCS Bowl Projections Week 13 - ESPN

    If I had to guess, this is where I'd say the Cyclones will end up as well.

    That would be my guess as well. Would love to be in Houston!

    Re: ESPN says Texas Bowl...

    I think the only way aTm doesn't end up in the Texas Bowl is if they go to the Insight. I'm pretty sure aTm would rather play in Houston than in Shreveport, as well as Houston would rather have aTm than ISU (although they know we do show up well), and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a deal between the bowls and possibly the schools to ensure aTm goes to Houston and ISU goes to Shreveport.

    They both have Iowa in the Fiesta Bowl with Boise State. I would love to see Iowa lose to Boise State but, I don't want to see Iowa in a BCS Bowl.

    aTm doesn't get to decide. Indy picks before Texas Bowl. Indy will take aTm if they are available.

    Love it that ISU may get back to Houston.

    Re: ESPN says Texas Bowl...

    I'd love to go to the Texas Bowl. One of my best friends from undergrad lives in Houston, and he's salivating over the potential for ISU to play there.

    Although someone earlier said that Pollard told them it was either Houston Bowl, or Insight if somehow Nebraska beats Texas

    I'm sure Austin Flynn won't mind if we're in Houston!

    Maybe we can all stay at his parents house??

    Re: ESPN says Texas Bowl...

    What is the reason why the Independence Bowl would not choose A&M?
    I'll take either and think it will be the Texas bowl, but I am curious as to why CBS would still be predicting us in the Independence...

    They would be out of the BCS had Oklahoma State won, but everything broke Iowa's way yesterday --

    Oklahoma State lost - no 2nd Big 12 team in the BCS unless Nebraska beats Texas
    Pittsburgh lost - no 2nd Big East team in the BCS
    Georgia Tech lost - no 2nd ACC team in the BCS
    And the Fiesta Bowl picks before the Orange Bowl. The Orange Bowl would have likely picked Penn State, but the Fiesta Bowl is probably 50/50 between Iowa and PSU.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: ESPN says Texas Bowl...

    If A&M decides they'd rather play in the Texas Bowl over the Independence (which I'm not sure will be the case), can they not accept a bid from Shreveport in lieu of the Texas Bowl or is it entirely up to the bowl committee instead?
