    SI Bowl Projections

    Alabama, Ohio State winners in 2010 preseason bowl projections - Stewart Mandel - SI.com

    Much better than the ESPN one. ISU vs Pitt in the Pinstripe Bowl.

    Re: SI Bowl Projections

    Didn't SI pick us to go like 3-9 or something. I realize this is probably a different writer but usually we get less credit from SI than ESPN and others.

    Re: SI Bowl Projections

    SI thinks Pitt is going to finish 4th in the Big East? That means SI thinks the Big East is going to be extremely good or that Pitt is severly overrated... either way it's nice to be mentioned for a bowl game.

    Tailor made for us. Our players could wear pinstripe suits to the bowl.

    You have to buy a ticket to the bowl game, the Army-ND game AND a Yankees game?

    ISU should play in pinstripe suits.

    Imagine the meltdown in Iowa City if Iowa is denied its first Rose Bowl trip in 20 years and is stuck with the Cap One Bowl because Boise State is required to get the invite

    In this case the writer thinks Wisconsin and Ohio St beat Iowa and that Boise St denies Wisconsin the Rose Bowl bid because he has Wisconsin in the Orange Bowl, if Iowa is in that position to go to the Rose Bowl but it goes to Boise instead Iowa could end up in the Cap One but I think they would end up in the Fiesta or Sugar Bowl.

    It would be bad, considering we didn't get the Rose Bowl trip back in 2002 either, thanks to another strange set of circumstances after OSU went to the NCG.

    However, if Iowa was BCS worthy, they'd probably be an at-large pick. In the SI predictions, I think they're assuming Iowa is actually the #3 team in the Big Ten, after OSU and Wisconsin.

    Re: SI Bowl Projections

    Ahhhhhhh, my bad. I kind of skimmed over it and didn't spot Wisconsin in the Orange as an at large bid. Yeah you'd have to think with Iowa or Wisconsin's fan following, they'd likely get an at large bid somewhere at 11-1 or maybe 10-2 if OSU is in the title game

    Actually, I've been wondering about that. If Boise State were to make it to the NCG to play Ohio State (I don't think 'Bama goes undefeated this year), does that satisfy the non-AQ/Rose Bowl issue? Or is this more a case of making the Rose Bowl open its doors to someone outside the Pac-10/Big Ten? I won't be too ticked if we get left out of the Rose Bowl because Boise gets that spot due to not making the NCG, but I WILL be ticked if they make it to the NCG and TCU got into the Rose Bowl ahead of us.

    Re: SI Bowl Projections

    I sincerely hope ISU makes a bowl game, and wins it. But there is no way they will play Pitt unless both Dion Lewis and Greg Romeus go down with ACL's in Week 1. That team is likely going to win the Big East (West Virginia, UConn, and MAYBE Cincy are the only competition. I don't see Pitt finishing worse than 2nd).

    IIRC he was on the Pitt sidelines the year ISU played Pitt at the Insight. Talk about coming full circle...
