    All Bowl Predictions by SI

    Mandel has us losing 20-16! I tend to disagree but it is going to be a close and good game to watch!!!

    Disagree. I don't think this game should or will be close. Minnesota is a great matchup for us. Not a great passing offense and a marginal defense at best. Us by 14.


    It's all snark from here on out

    We got a huge break getting picked by the Insight. We could have gone to Houston & played Navy or to Shreveport & played Georgia. I think we would have lost to Navy and I think we would have gotten creamed by Georgia. But not only are we going to a better bowl, we have a much weaker opponent than we would have had in either of the other potential bowl games. ISU by at least 14, maybe 20+.

    I do like Mandel's Outback Bowl prediction no matter how unlikely it is.

    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.

    Well, they are 0-2 (and not even close) so far, so I wouldn't worry about their Insight prediction just yet.

    FWIW, he missed badly on both of his picks yesterday. I count about a dozen very questionable picks on the rest of his list. He's not going to win any office pools with his insight.

    As esoteric as that sounds I've noticed that the places with bad coverage like that who still have the old logo have no idea what their talking about/too lazy to put in any research. I know kids 12 and under who know more about college football, don't live in Iowa and know/recognize I-State's new logo and can pick the games better...Some places sports coverage is just terrible and it's simple to point out.

    I saw that the other day and emailed him about it. I'm not expecting a response.
