    ESPN Preseason Bowl Projections

    NCAA College Football BCS Bowl Projections - Preseason - ESPN


    From what I hear, they had us in at the Dallas Football Classic, but took us out after about half an hour. I'm not sure about Mark's projection for the Fiesta Bowl. I think I'd have to root for the meteor in that case.

    Edit: Before their second massive edit campaign, Mark had Iowa playing Nebraska for the Fiesta Bowl, just to clarify.

    And then what? T.Boone looked at the list and threatened to buy ESPN and fire them if they didn't put OSU on the list?

    There's no way Kansas plays in the Dallas Football Classic bowl, let alone any bowl this year IMO.

    I would like to be in the meetings about the Insight Bowl inviting Missouri after their snub last year.

    I would too, so that I can hear them say "We'd like to invite you to be in the Insight bowl....NOT!!!! Because your fans don't travel well, we decided to invite the University of Phoenix, which, lets face it, is in Phoenix. Yes, we know they don't have a football team, but they've already bought more tickets to the game than your fans are projected to buy.If they sell enough tickets, we've agreed to let them just have the cardinals play in UPhoenix gear."

    Re: ESPN Preseason Bowl Projections

    I really think ESPN needs to take down their bowl predictions until they take a few minutes to look it over... Every time they make a change, they end up leaving someone off that makes them look even stupider.

    Mark doesn't have Boise State in a bowl. At all.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Bowl Projections

    Quite the difference of opinion on TCU:

    Adelson - vs. Alabama in the Sugar Bowl
    Schlabach - vs. Cal in the MAACO Las Vegas

    I'm sure they took the time to analyze the politics of every minor bowl selection committee prior to doing their projections.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Bowl Projections

    Wow, you'd think they would have shown the list to some other people at ESPN and only posted their final list. Now that I've seen 3 versions of it in 30 minutes, I can't wait to see version 4.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Bowl Projections

    Are they changing these right now on the fly? They did have Iowa vs. Nebby in the Fiesta (dumb.) Now they have them in the Rose vs. Oregon. Along with what the previous poster said about not even having Boise St. in a bowl at all, these guys know as much as my grandma about college football.

    It looks like he just drew the teams out of a hat.
