    Maybe Insight Bowl afterall

    Just in from the Kansas City Star. Missouri could drop to the Texas Bowl.


    “We’re hearing that the Insight Bowl may prefer to invite Iowa State than us,” [Missouri director of media relations Chad] Moller said. “The last time they played there they brought 20,000 fans.”

    Mizzou could drop to the Texas Bowl - KansasCity.com

    That'd be a huge slap in the face for Missouri.

    How can that happen. Don't all th 7-5 teams need to be selected before the 6-6 teams?

    20,000? I thought many reports had it in excess of 40K?

    Of course, I really doubt that it'd be anything close to that this time around. Economy, not mention that the first trip was our first bowl in a generation.

    Nope. Not in the Big 12. As long as there are exactly as many bowl eligible teams as there are official tie-ins (or less), then any non-BCS bowl can take whomever the hell they want to. The Cotton Bowl could take us if they wanted to.

    Re: Maybe Insight Bowl afterall

    In? Out? In? Out? Make up your mind, Mr Procrastinator.

    Actually, more Iowans probably live in Arizona than Mizzous. Having Iowa and Iowa State play near the same time could be a coup.

    There are enough Big 12 bowl games to get everyone that qualified in the conference, so the bowl committiess can choose whom they want.

    Sweet. And yeah, that would be a huge slap in the face, considering they are 8-4 and beat us.

    Re: Maybe Insight Bowl afterall

    Is there any way our SID could put out a release stating that there are 82 million Iowans in Arizona to help our cause?

    Re: Maybe Insight Bowl afterall

    That would suck for Missouri. It was only a couple years ago when Kansas screwed them and they went to a BCS bowl rather than Missouri, who actually made it to the Big 12 Championship game. Maybe this could rekindle our "Rivalary" with them and make hte Telephone trophy more valuable.

    Maybe this also means Iowa to the Fiesta bowl?

    Mizzou fans don't travel worth a crap, neither do KU. This would be a big break for us because it would put us in a better destination against a more favorable matchup from the Big 10.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    They beat us but not convincingly enough. They got lucky they won the KU game too! If I were the KU coach Missouri never wins that game.

    If this happens then that tells me the Fiesta Bowl is settled on Iowa and they are hoping to get people stay over the whole long weekend.
