Sad, but the way the bowls work. Happens every year unfortunately.
I hear you on that. I mean, I was absolutely depressed when ISU was picked over Mizzou for the Insight Bowl last year...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
Not that any of us needed another reason to want Texas to lose but I'm getting an erie feeling that if they are bowl eligible, we'll get bumped down a bowl game in favor of the Longhorns.
This is a reality of the bowl system, and also a reason I hate how it's structured. If anything, ISU fans ought to be rooting FOR UT and Tech, having beat each head-to-head (assuming ISU would finish in a dead-heat with those teams in conference standings, of course).
Supposedly those things come into play with BCS rankings, but it's seemingly zero factor in the rest of the bids, which are based on conference finish. Unless they aren't, and the bowl makes choices based on intangibles.
Again, I know that's reality. But either have a structure, or don't.
