    I don't get these posts that say "ISU should have went to the Texas Bowl"

    This is commical, I keep reading posts that say "ISU should have went to Houston for more exposure, its on ESPN, blah, blah." Recruits do not care where you are playing, how many recruits are going to drive to Houston to watch Mizzou vs Navy, maybe 2. Remember, looking at the blogs all over the internet, recruits are going to know that a 6-6 ISU team jumped an 8-4 Mizzou team because of fan support, nobody thinks that matters? As for ESPN, thats all well and good for the Texas Bowl, but millions of Americans have the NFL Network and when they are showing their Thursday night NFL games, they will be promoting this game over and over again. We Mediacom customers are the ones that suffer, the Insight Bowl is the greatest thing to happen for ISU in terms of media, for awhile.

    Don't give people facts around here. They are set in their ways and won't believe any of it.

    It would be interesting to know how many people who are now ****** about the game being on the NFL Network didn't realize that would be the case when they were pining for the Insight Bowl earlier this week.

    I was thinking the same thing, but didn't really want to go back through and look at everything.

    Someone even went as far as saying that 99% of Iowa doesn't get NFL Network.

    I saw that too. I'm sure they have the stats to back that up, though.

    I'd be willing to bet there are more people who are perfectly content to just read and not post. I always figure more negative people post more often.

    Nothing helps a bad mood more than spreading it around.

    Isn't it the Texas Bowl that didn't pay us the full amount last time as well?

    Re: I don't get these posts that say "ISU should have went to the Texas Bowl"

    I admit that the bowl games don't have as huge of an effect on recruits as people sometimes think. They'll be playing many more games at Jack Trice Stadium then the odds of playing in Tempe. AZ is a good fit for us in 2000 and it is this year in 2009 too. I think the awesome atmosphere at Homecoming for Baylor and during the CU game as well as going on the road and the exposure for taking down Nebraska does more for a recruit then what bowl and on what channel they are playing.

    Also Minnesota is a much more interesting opponent than Navy
