    Re: Big 12 Bowl speculation

    Was just looking at a Minnesota board and right now they are thinking it will be the Alamo bowl. It is looking like we are going to be facing Michigan state. The MSU message board seems to be agreeing on this.

    Northwestern to the Outback.

    Which means Wisky to the Alamo and Minny to the Insight.

    Re: Big 12 Bowl speculation

    BCS National Championship Game -- Texas vs. Alabama
    AT&T Cotton Bowl -- OSU vs. Ole Miss
    Pacific Life Holiday Bow -- NU vs. Arizona
    Valero Alamo Bowl – Tech vs. (sounds like it will be Minnisota)
    Brut Sun Bowl -- OU vs. Stanford
    Insight Bowl – Iowa State vs. (sounds like Michigan State)
    Independence Bowl -- Texas A&M vs. Georgia
    Texas Bowl -- Missouri vs. Navy

    It looks like we have some favorable match ups for the Big12. I think Missouri, Tech, NU and ISU of course could all easily win.

    Very favorable.

    Alabama will be heavily favored but don't count Texas out. Mack Brown always has his teams up for games like this, and the last time they played for a national title in the Rose Bowl they supposedly had no chance against USC.

    Oklahoma State is probably a toss-up against Mississippi.

    Nebraska should crush Arizona. Arizona hasn't seen a defense like Nebraska's all year.

    Texas Technical should crush Michigan State. MSU isn't very good to begin with, and they will be missing at least ten of their players.

    Oklahoma should crush Stanford. OU when healthy is much better than their record shows, and they will be healthy at OL and LB positions for the bowl.

    Iowa State should crush Minnesota. Minnesota w/o Decker is terrible. This is a great draw -- we are getting an easier opponent in the Insight than we would have had in either of the two "lesser" bowls.

    Texas A&M will struggle against Georgia. This is a tough draw for the Aggies.

    Missouri vs. Navy is probably a toss-up.

    I expect the Big 12 to go 5-3, but 6-2 or 7-1 would not surprise me at all.


    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.
