    We also get Run DHC back!

    We are #14 in ESPN's FPI. The computers give us a 43% chance on Friday night.

    WSU placed #13 by the committee, which means no NY6 bowl for them. The Rose will be the only NY6 for the Pac-12 this season. People were picking Utah for the Alamo Bowl, but that might go to WSU now. We could slide.

    From a support standpoint, we are much more likely to have fans attend the Holiday Bowl than the Alamo Bowl. I will definitely attend the Holiday Bowl and not attend the Alamo Bowl.

    Watch us end up in Vegas again. The only way off of this treadmill is to win this week and make a great showing in the Rose Bowl, so we can start ahead of the curve next year.

    As I understand it, the farthest we could fall would be the Sun Bowl, and that would only be if the Holiday bowl took Oregon. Will they take the Ducks with the possibility that Herbert won't play? That will be the thing to watch.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    same

    Rose - definitely
    Holiday - Yes
    Vegas - maybe
    Sun - No
    Alamo - No

    Utah getting the Vegas bowl again would, in my mind, be the worst possible outcome for this season. Please no.

    It's all academic, since we'll be in Pasadena. But Vegas would probably give us another shot at BSU.

    San Antonio is as great a destination as any for a bowl game, but it's too far to drive.

    The computers agree with the committee, but I'd still give WSU a NY6 game. The computers have Notre Dame out of the playoff (#7), and nobody seriously considers that. The committee could never say what we all know - Notre Dame isn't that good. But they can dump on Wazzu without any blowback.

    If we get Holiday, would it be against Penn State? Or Northwestern? Utah/PSU would be a great game.

    I'd like the Alamo as i could go to that

    Everyone I've seen has picked us for the Sun bowl, with Wazzu to the Alamo and Oregon to the Holiday.

    I now see Fischer and McMurphey with Sun bowl predictions too.

    The fact that a bowl can pick someone with a lesser record is infuriating.

  24. #354
    Oregon hasn't been to the holiday in a decade, and the ducks are a bigger attendance and tv draw than we are.

  25. #355
    Seems our best hope is for committee to pull its head out and put wsu in a ny6 bowl over Florida or Texas.

    I’d put my money on the Holiday Bowl.

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.
