SI has ISU in Liberty Bowl vs. Tulane. That would be a deflating result after lofty preseason hopes. (Not judging the location itself; purely where ISU would land in the pecking order).

there are 4 games left to decide where Iowa State goes for a bowl game. The prudent move would be to let things play out. That way you have all of the information needed to make an informed decision as to whether or not the season was the total failure some on here seem to think it is.

I’m not talking about you as one of them. But there are a bunch here that fall under that category.

Probably Go (Can Drive)- Liberty, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio.

Probabaly Not (stupid High flight prices over holidays) - Phoenix, Orlando.


PS: Black Friday- Southwest Airlines usually has some crazy low prices for flight to Orlando in Early-Mid January ($49 each way- last year)...............if you wanta get out of the Snow for a little while.

I agree, it is a pecking order issue. However, on the positive spin side, it is nice that we have an older Historical Bowl (7th oldest) in our pecking order, and it is very drivable. Plus, I personally like Tulane! I saw them play @ Iowa State when I was in school (Cyclones won big), and I saw them last year @ Cincinnati (Bearcats won big). Their QB McMillan (LSU transfer) is worth the price of admission. Plus, I am fairly confident ISU could beat the Greenies. So, not a terrible draw.

staying home this year. Been doing a lot of work traveling lately and 4 trips yet between now and Christmas. Also have a San Antonio trip near the end of January and trip to Key West in February.

It's true, one-third of the season still left to play. Some of us are probably hyper-reactive because of another missed opportunity for a W, then having OU and Texas next on the schedule, and KSU beating OU makes the finale seem less than a sure thing. I didn't consider it "sure thing" anyway, but odds of winning probably dropped some.

Another way to view it is maybe it makes Oklahoma look slightly more vulnerable than it appeared, and Texas has had two weeks of close call/upset loss, so that might not be as daunting.

The way Big 12 is going this year, it's almost impossible to predict from week to week anyway.

I'll go to any location for a bowl game.

Also, almost every "bowl prediction" article is horrible especially so this past week after all the upsets. Brett McMurphy is OK as we get later in the season because I think he actually has some connections to bowl committees, but it's still too early. Baylor may not even play in Big 12 championship game. Heck, OU may not even play in Big 12 championship game.
