    Rutgers (before they went to the big10) playing against us in the Pinstripe Bowl, which was about 45 minutes from their home campus . . .

    does that count?

    Didn't we also play Alabama in Mobile, AL one year, or am I imagining that one?

    Edit: Nevermind, that was in La (Independence Bowl)

    Which is still "only" about 6 hours from their campus.

    When we played in our "first" Liberty Bowl (the one to be non-remembered), we played Tulsa, which was also less than 6 hours from Memphis.

    Bottom line, kinda excited to be the "close team" for once!!! (only the 2nd time in the "modern" era, I think).

    Presume you meant "ineligible," but I prefer your explanation.

    You forgot the NCAA sanctions Criner left him with. He didn't have a chance.

    Edit: But he could have given Troy the ball a few more times....

    Even if you ignore the travel distance, that also was vs. an opponent ISU had defeated that season already. I HATE bowl-game rematches of regular season games, regardless of who's involved. (Exceptions, of course, for playoff and obligated bowl pairings).

    I believe that was Pro Football Focus, an outfit that specializes in statistics and analysis of NCAA players draftability and NFL player value as potential free agents. They matter in terms of which players are the most NFL ready.

    I always look at their All America team as a preview of their draft rankings by position.

    Coug fans, does Larry Scott and the PAC12 network realize the rest of the country is sleeping when you play your night games? I can't imagine it helps with your TV viewership. I would love to watch more PAC football if it were on earlier.

    I saw a video in which a coach (I believe it was Ferentz, but I can't find it now) told his new players the "nobody gets cheated". I thought it was a good way to look at life or athletics. Don't think you're getting enough playing time? Probably you're not working hard enough or you're not good enough. Your team lost? Probably you needed to make a few more plays. Everybody has What-ifs. ISU had some bad calls in the K-state when the flags were picked up. We probably would have won the game if not for that last bad call. BUT we also let them drive the field on us after we punted. We could have overcome that bad call by getting a defensive stop. AND, had we played to our capability the rest of the game, it wouldn't have been close enough for one call to make a difference. We need to own our losses as well as our wins. Cougars want to play on New Years? Win the conference and you'll be in the Rose Bowl.

    There was no way the refs were going to allow ISU to win that game.

    Nah. The Big East was a BCS league and they already knew they were going to the B1G.

    But it did suck being in their back yard.

    Another Coug here. The bitterness has nothing to do with ISU. Anyone who knows football (including Vegas) knows that it’s a great matchup.

    The bitterness comes from dropping 5 spots from a loss in a rivalry game and being out of the NY6.

    Last week a 4part expose came out showing that our conference VP interfered in the USC game and overruled the replay official. It also showed that the conference is enriching the executives and the schools are getting screwed out of money. We wanted a hard lobby to the CFP from our conference and got nothing. Every team in the PAC 12 lost $350,000 because of it.

    It’s just a series of events. We lost to a rival in a blizzard, dropped out of the NY6, got no help from conference leadership who it turns out are paying themselves insanely and taking private jets while we are scraping up $$$ from donors.

    All in all we are just pissed, but not at the Alamo bowl or ISU.

    Other than that the two fan bases are like looking in a damn mirror. This will be the party to end all parties!
