    if ISU goes to Insight, they will play..

    I'd say Michigan State instead of Minnesota. Minnesota played at Insight the last two out of three times and lost them both. Michigan State, however, never played there before. I hear the MSU football team is going through some issues. This would be a good opportunity for Iowa State.

    Re: if ISU goes to Insight, they will play..

    I would love for the opportunity to play a big 10 school besides Iowa. When was the last time Iowa State played a Big 10 school besides Iowa? I dont care which team it is, I just want ISU to be in the Insight bowl playing a big 10 team.

    Unfortunately the Insight gets the last pick of Big 10 teams and Minnesota might be all that is left...

    I dont care who we play out of the Big 11. They all are horrible! Worst league in the country by far!

    We played Minnesota in 1997.

    At least the Big 11 has a TV contract that every single team in the conference is on TV every game. Plus the conference has a Bowl package that makes our package look very mediocre. Wow and both of those falls into that hands of our commissioner that is anti-Iowa State. What a conference!

    If the Big 10 gets two BCS bids, which they will, the Insight will have the last pick of Big 10 teams. I would also rather play Minnesota over Michigan State, and I'm positive Michigan State, Wisconsin and Northwestern will all get chosen over Minnesota.

    Thanks for the reply! That is neat that it has been at least a decade since we have played a team from the big 11 other than Iowa. Hopefully Beebe doesnt open his mouth some more to the Insight bowl committee.

    I would agree based on the way they played during the season, but that was before half of Michigan State's team was arrested. Unless they let them out for the bowl game, MSU might be the easier win.


    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.

    I would rather play MSU since they will be missing a bunch of starters but I think it will be Minnesota. Honestly, we could win this game by more than any other win this season. I really believe that.


    It's all snark from here on out
