    Big bowl season for our little state!

    Iowa is one of the smaller states in the union. And both BCS schools from our small state won bowl games. Has that ever happened before??

    Oh yeah. You're right. Well, that kind of stole my thunder. Still, it seems like a big deal for a state like Iowa! I'm no Hawk fan, but after this bowl season, Im proud to be an Iowan.

    Re: Big bowl season for our little state!

    Unless I'm missing something, Iowa (ISU and Iowa), California (USC and UCLA) Florida and (Florida & Florida State) are the only states to have multiple schools from BCS Conferences win bowl games.

    Pretty sure after the news media in Iowa is notified, the Big 12 will find out, too.

    There will be one more state after Thursday, either Alabama (Alabama and Auburn) or Texas (Texas and Texas Tech)

    Good. Maybe then they'll share some of the conference TV revenue with us.


    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.

    Penn State (Big Ten) and Pittsburgh (Big East).

    Florida (SEC), Florida State (ACC), South Florida (Big East).

    There will be one more: Texas Tech/Texas; or Auburn/Alabama.

    But...Iowa, Pennsylvania and Florida are the only ones with winning teams from DIFFERENT BCS conferences.

    Utah; BYU & Utah both won their bowl games.

    Idaho; Boise State & Idaho both won their bowl games.

    Not BCS, but still a pretty good achievement.
