    Wanted to post my own power ranking now that bowls have been released. The metric I used is bowl prestige/# tie in.

    1.) Oklahoma
    2.) Baylor
    3.) Texas
    4.) Iowa State
    5.) Oklahoma St
    6.) K State
    7.) TCU
    8.) West Virginia
    9.) Texas Tech
    10.) Kansas

    @surly let me know what you think girl

    Congrats on the bowl, @surly. I see some of your fans are unhappy, but I think this is a good landing spot for you.

    1) It’s good for KSU’s National prestige as casual football fans love to tune in to watch two teams run it up the middle at each other for two hours.
    2) I have been to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl, and let me tell you, the 30 degree weather just makes that Southern comfort food taste that much better.
    3) It is a nice stadium that’s near downtown and has nice amenities. You won’t have to wait in bathroom lines at all. Also, the Memphis police force keeps a lot of their riot gear near there so if a riot breaks out you will be safe.
    4) The game has a sweet flyover. For a while you may think a jet is going to ram the stadium but it’s actually just a FedEx jet doing the flyover. Pretty cool, you don’t see a 737 every day.
    5) You can visit where Jeff Buckley drowned. Don’t worry, they said it was a accidental drowning, not depression and suicide from being in Memphis.

    Best of luck! Win one for the conference!

    You just beat me to it, so here's what I was going to post

    Oklahoma: Playoffs is obvious #1
    Baylor: Got pretty lucky all year but their record shows they are deserving of the Sugar Bowl
    Texas: Only picked because of their "big name"
    Iowa State: See what happens when you have a fanbase that travels?
    Oklahoma State: Good season but losing 2 stars hurts bowl selections
    Kansas State: decent record, but poor fanbase leads to Memphis

    @surly care to add anything?

    So your metric was bowl tie in coupled with disdain for surly/KSU? Nice I like it!

    Happy for K-State fans. Memphis is nice this team of year; very cool for them.

    Next time don't get embarrassed by a horrible West Virginia team in Manhattan.

    Does surly go the path of LakesBison in exile now that she has turned the whole board against herself?

    I used to like her until she tried to say that West Virginia's coach was better than Campbell.

    I believe ISU fans are acting a bit like the ugly rich girl I once knew who flaunted the prettiest dress at prom.

    Cyclone fans won the dang day for their team. Bowls below the New Years Six are about bringing fans and money. We all know that. Clearly, ISU has set the pace. Y'all deserve to be proud of the accomplishment. I'm just glad EMAW isn't head to Houston.

    The placement based on merit would have been as follows. But we all know Bowlsby's first job is to take care of Texas.

    CFP Oklahoma
    Sugar Baylor
    Alamo oSu
    Camping K-State
    Texas Iowa State
    Liberty Texas

    You’d rather play Navy in Memphis, than play A&M in Houston?

    I question your sanity.

    We beat aTm in Houston a couple of years ago. No K-State fan wanted to revisit that.

    Enjoy Memphis. Better than Shreveport. Or Boise.
