    Thumbs down ISU Bowl Projections

    I see USA Today Sports is snubbing ISU in their bowl projections. They have Missouri in the Insight Bowl, Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl, and Middle Tennessee in the Independence Bowl in place of a Big XII team.

    No way this happens, but you can thank our TV contract for the USA Today writer to have missed our season.

    Does Middle Tennessee even have a football team?

    Re: ISU Bowl Projections

    Wow, that really shows some lack of credibility on the USA Today's part. All they have to do is look at the Big XII standings and know the basics of conference bowl affiliations...

    Re: ISU Bowl Projections

    It's not possible. Big XII has as many conf affiliated bowl games as bowl eligible teams, and all bowls affiliated to the conf must be filled by eligible teams within the conference before going outside.
    Silly USA Today.

    Re: ISU Bowl Projections

    Weren't they the idiots that had K-State in a bowl after their loss to Nebraska and weren't bowl eligible at 6-6?

    Re: ISU Bowl Projections

    Honest question here. If I remember correctly, a couple years ago when Iowa went 6-6, the Big 10 had plenty of bowl spots, but the hawks lost out because there was a rule that no 6 win team could be selected before all the 7+ win teams had been chosen regardless of conference affiliation. Was this just a Big 10 rule, or are people taking this into account when they are putting together these projections?

    I'd love to see how they defend themselves after the bowl games are announced later today.
