    Mizzou was Insights first choice... BUT

    From a good source, the committee (used for both PHX bowls) asked Mizzou how many of the ~10K tickets reserved for a visiting team it would like.... they replied with 3500.

    The committee realized they might need to look at a better 'drawing' team for the bowl. They asked JP, JP replied (paraphrasing) "all of them please and more than likely more".

    Well, if their fans don't want to support their program, stinks to be them.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Astonishing story if true. With all the ******* and moaning that went on this week, how could their AD plausibly given that answer? Pollard's answer was a no brainer.

    We were 20,000 strong last time... I think we'll shatter those numbers this year!

    it was mostly a done deal at the start of the week... creating the ******* and moaning.

    The questions were asked about a week ago. My understanding is the Mizzou AD had no idea/clue that the committee would move anyone 'up'.... that they were a lock.

    Re: Mizzou was Insights first choice... BUT

    I thought bowl committees were prohibited from discussing "guaranteed" ticket sales with school representatives?

    I think your source is wrong wrong wrong.

    If this is true you probably shouldn't be posting it on a message board. This is against the rules!!!

    How big is the alumni in and around the phoenix area? how many do you think would go. and then you count in the amount of fans from iowa. I will say 10-15k will be there. It is getting very expensive these days.

    No it's not. If what he said when asked how many tickets that athletic department would like, he can give whatever response he wants. He isn't guaranteeing anything in the statement listed in the OP.
