    Yeah, David had a rough year with the injury and the suspension. He need to have a good showing in the bowl game to improve his draft standings. Heck he didn't even make all conference this year. Kid has something to prove, and he most likely will.

    In addition to getting Alamo bid for "3rd place" above Camping World (justice, considering ISU beat WVa for tiebreaker), playing Wazzu is more intriguing than getting Syracuse.

    I'd be more confident of beating Syracuse, compared to Washington State. I'll accept that risk.

    First P5 team ISU has played in a bowl since '09 (Minnesota). That's a nice change. Also, Iowa State's first bowl game vs. a Pac-8/10/12 school.

    The Valero Alamo bowl is the PAC 12's #2 bowl tie-in, so that wasnt good enough for them out of the 14 team PAC-12? What were they expecting, the Rose Bowl? I guess my advice is beat Washington next time.

    By the same logic ISU fans should be "bitter" about getting destroyed in Austin because it took away our Sugar Bowl that hand had been hand selected as ours. Im extremely happy Iowa State got the Alamo Bowl regardless of who we are playing. Saying they should have gotten a better bowl is arrogant.

    Not just that, but feeling like the table was set for bigger things and then some widely recognized poor officiating put a stop to it.

    Kind of like the Blarge in the NCAA tourney.

    Always love it when opposing fans show up to tell us how disappointed they are that they have to play us. Looking forward to disappointing yall again on December 28th.

    To clarify, I meant that he left Washington State to come Ames where he got no support from the AD. No recruiting budget, crumbling facilities.

    He never had a chance.

    Unlike the Big 10 (and now, unfortunately, the Big 12) the Pacific League can actually count. It was Pac8 when I was there: 2 Washington schools, 2 Oregon schools, and 4 California schools. They became the Pac 10 when they added the 2 Arizona schools, and Pac 12 when they added Utah and Colorado. They have never had 14 teams.

    Didn’t we pretty much drink Beale St all out of beer? I still think that should be one of the greatest accomplishments in Iowa State athletics history.

    In all honesty, I prefer Washington over WSU. Washington embarrassed the TOE in the Rose Bowl, all WSU did was give us Walden. I'm still scarred by those years he was here.

    Holy ****. Are you the type to go to a bar and start up some reality show type drama?

    The fans are disappointed that they lost, and didn't get a better bowl as a result. Iowa State fans would surely be feeling underwhelmed if they had a chance at the Big 12 title game the last game, and didn't pull through.

    Iowa State fans should be bitter about bad scheming at TCU since just a little 'spark' on offense like putting in Purdy late for a few drives may have maximized their chance at a win there.

    Goodness.

    I am intrigued with this match up ... not just the Leach angle.

    OP: What is the WSU defense like ? What is your preferred style of O to defend? Have they seen WRs like Butler or RBs similar to Montgomery?

    On a positive note, I think our defense has been built to play against teams like this. We will definitely have to make some adjustments, as teams have found the weaknesses and beat us over the head with them for a few weeks.

    I was in Seattle for TG and watched the Apple Bowl game. Disappointed your guys did not win and felt the sting just like when we lost to Iowa in our first game this year. Your team reminds me most of West Virginia in the Big 12, so this should be a very good game. Enjoy the tremendous atmosphere around San Antonio and the Alamo Bowl!
