    Re: ESPN ranks all bowls Insight 29th

    Are these rankings based on the quality of teams involved or how good of a game the bowl should be?

    I'm guessing a little bit of both.

    Certainly not a sexy matchup outside the borders of Iowa and Minnesota but I could care less. We're bowling baby!!!

    Re: ESPN ranks all bowls Insight 29th

    I know it's only informational, but is anyone surprised at the 29th place ranking? Two teams with non-winning records, and losing records in their conferences. But as mentioned before me: I could care less. It's a giant step forward for the program. We get more practice time for next year's starters. And we get to go some place that's more than likely deliciously warm. Everybody wins!!

    I love college football and watch most bowl games but Nevada vs SMU; Cent Mich vs Troy; Cent FL vs Rutgers and Southern Miss vs Middle Tenn are games I probably not watch and all are listed above ISU vs Minne doesn't make sense to me.

    I think it will be a good game, and all 500 people who see it on the NFL network will be glad they tuned in. JEESH....couldn't we get a game that is on freaking tv.

    I wonder if Decker would play and if it was on ESPN if it wouldn't be ranked a little higher

    Agree...I don't think we should be anywhere near the top, but at least it is a game that features two teams from BCS conferences...

    If you didn't have ties to ISU you would be saying the same about this game.

    Completely out of context. The full quote: "A bowl game is a bowl game is a bowl game is a bowl game is a dysfunctional rabid opossum is a degenerate miscreant is a large owl.

    Re: ESPN ranks all bowls Insight 29th

    Is this the last time the Big 10 and Big 12 will met in this bowl? Don't both conferences drop this bowl next year or is it just the Big 10?
