    All I know is that I love seeing a lot of cardinal and gold in the stands on TV.

    The same reason the Liberty Bowl did 2 years ago?

    Marcus is awesome. I'm sure he can move the needle just a touch.

    We hosted Thanksgiving this year and immediately after I had my gall bladder removed.

    I've laid out some cash this month so a bowl trip isn't happening for me this year.:mad:

    Get the best bowl possible and just win baby!

    With the Alamo wanting a Texas-Utah match-up, we still have a shot at CWB. Fingers crossed.

    Setting the local fanbases aside, other than Texas none of the schools piled up in third place have any traditional national following/interest. I think we do have an edge in having a team this year that's more interesting than KSU or OSU for the bowl TV audiences. Purdy and Hall give the announcers something to talk about and neutral fans something to maybe be interested in. Neutral fans can identify with a name QB that isn't named "Who?"

    Might not matter, just a thought over mid-morning java.

    There hasn't been a deal out of Minneapolis since Northwest and Republic were fighting for customers here decades ago. :(

    I just had an appendectomy this week... between that and hemorrhaging cash out for a wedding next year... a bowl game trip is out of the cards for me too.

    This chance at Orlando is messing with me. I'd be interested in Orlando. Was thinking of driving to Ames today but that would be in reservation primetime and I'd miss my window. You could refresh and watch prices pop last year for the Alamo.

    Every prediction I've seen this morning has USC in the Holiday.

    Good luck. That didn't work out so well for Andy Kaufman.

    If Orlando is interested in having a fan base drink all of the Busch Light in the city, ISU is an obvious choice over K-State

    When they reshuffle the bowl alliances I'd love to get the Holiday Bowl for the Big 12. Won't happen but it's a bowl I'd love to attend.
