You must excuse him. I am sure the OP got a great response the first time he posted this for his fellow fans. All depends on the demographic.
like feature needs to be fixed lots of stuff to like in response to op.
I originally did it based off of who to root for and at the end I saw 7 teams above 6-6 as at large bowlers and remembered the Hawkeye incident in 2007. Work was done before the 7-5 statement got added and probably should have left it as a prediction of what non-big 12 bowl we make it to. My bad.
Didn't realize they changed the 7-5 rule (link for change please as I missed that one)
Starting with the 2010–11 bowl season, the rule that required the selection of seven-win teams before any 6–6 teams was eliminated.[SUP][/SUP] The first season of the new rule saw Temple go uninvited despite going 8–4, including a win over eventual Big East BCS representative Connecticut. In the 2011-12 bowl season, the UCLA Bruins were invited to a bowl game despite a losing record (6-7), while 7-5 winning team Western Kentucky and 6-6 non-losing team Ball State did not receive invites.
Pac-12 guaranteed to get 2 in now...hopefully OU gets the last at-large
Oh oh. Four more terams won their sicxth today with UCONN and Pitt having a chance next game. Not looking good for a bowl other than Shreveport.
Crazy how it's worked out. 6 guaranteed + 2nd SEC + Notre Dame + Oregon. Clemson fans are not going to be happy.
Dammit, looks like you're right if the Big 12 only gets one in the BCS.
I had high hopes for the Military Bowl, but I missed their contingency with the MAC. If Rice loses to UTEP, it will still have an open slot to fill, against a team like Bowling Green or Ohio. But Rice is 5-6 and UTEP is 3-8.
Meanwhile, the Independence Bowl will likely have two open slots to fill as neither of its tie-ins will get made and it has no contingencies. Would likely be ISU against a mid-major - perhaps one of the Louisiana schools from the Sun Belt.
i hate that bowl and its location
why cant we get some decent bowl tie ins?
The Independence Bowl is not a Big 12 bowl. The Big 12 has 8 bowls this year and is actually cutting back to 7 starting next year. Nobody expected to have nine teams bowl-eligible.
Liberty Bowl is still on the table... Big East #5 isn't guaranteed yet (root against Pitt and Uconn) and SEC #8 isnt available either.
Tulsa or UCF V Iowa State.
im just saying that only a few of the big 12 bowls every year excite me
Reading this took two minutes of my life the I will never get back. Get a life!!!
If my post took 2 minutes to read....well....
That is because there are two Kansas schools (good cop/bad cop) and the other eight are almost equal on the football field.
Do not want to play Tulsa again.
