    This is why I want Mississippi State in the Texas Bowl, who is maybe the worst team we could plausibly face, and is an SEC team to boot, who we'd also play in my most preferred bowl city: Anywhere But Memphis. (Of course I also want Notre Dame; these are my two top preferences.)

    We deserve to go to the Liberty Bowl with how we played this season, however, with the way our fanbase is known for traveling combined with JP's ability to sell that fact.... I don't count out the Camping World Bowl or the Texas Bowl.

    Not sure how motivated UCF would be playing in Liberty Bowl after being in NY6 Bowls the last 2 years but from an athletic standpoint they would give us all that we would want. They love to throw the go route to believe #13 who is a very good Receiver.

    I wouldn't use any of the local channels as a source. They make **** up just like everyone else.

    These bowl “experts” aren’t digging too deep into these projections. How many people actually think the Alamo Bowl is going to pass on Texas, OSU, or even ISU for K-State? If you go by the rankings, sure. But we all know that’s not how it goes.

    How does Iowa State scheme on Defense play out against the Option with Navy?

    Multiple weeks to prepare for the option would be nice

    We match up really well against the option. Elite front 7 that can keep the offense moving sideways. Norm Parker executed that perfectly against Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl. We should be able to do the same.

    OSU, KSU both beat us and deserve to go to a better bowl IMO.

    We are tied with Texas in conference record, and beat them, but you know they will be picked ahead of us.

    Good thing: As has been stated have multiple weeks to prepare for it.

    Bad things: Hard to replicate in practice, Defense better get ready to get their legs cut. Also they can 3 and 4 yard you to death and kill you on time of possession.

    I'm willing to bet Re-Al can give a pretty good scout team option look.

    I'd say that Re-Al actually is probably a way better athlete than whatever Navy would trot out.

    Oh, I hear ya, but if they were just throwing stuff out there, I wouldn’t think they would just list two destinations. Guess we’ll know soon enough. The KState game was such a downer, including weather. Hoping for Orlando or Texas.
