Let's talk about 2019 Bowl Games!
« on: November 02, 2019, 07:08:07 PM »

We are bowl eligible!  Remember, the Big 12 bowls are not obligated to take anyone, unless the conference game champion is NOT in the playoff, and then the Sugar has to take them.  If the conference game champion makes the playoff, the conference selects an alternate for the Sugar.

The selection order for the Big 12 is:

Sugar (New Orleans)
Alamo (San Antonio)
Camping World (Orlando, Florida)
Texas (Houston)
Liberty (Memphis, Tennessee)
Cheez-It (Phoenix)
First Responder (Dallas)


Here are my guesses:

Sugar (New Orleans) - Oklahoma
Alamo (San Antonio) - Baylor
Camping World (Orlando, Florida) - Oklahoma State
Texas (Houston) - Texas
Liberty (Memphis, Tennessee) - Kansas State
Cheez-It (Phoenix) - Iowa State
First Responder (Dallas) - TCU

Went to the Camping World Bowl a few years back for LSU-Louisville.  It's a weird place and they aggressively push BWW there.  Would be a dec trip.

Baylor wins out regular season and we win out entirely. Sugar bowl Champs.

Jerry Palm has us getting selected by the Alamo, with OU making the playoff and Baylor getting the Big 12's automatic Sugar Bowl spot.  His matchup has us playing USC, which would be fun.

I'm with MIR, I'd definitely prefer Orlando vs Notre Dame.

This would make the media leading up to it really fun, if our media personnel were ballsy enough to ask the tough questions (LOOKING AT YOU _FAN!).
"Does it motivate you more to know that Kansas State has dominated USC in the past?"   I look forward to the USC players responses.  Will be a lot like our players responses to the CATS logo crisis.  "That's all in the past. This is a different group of guys and the stink of that absolute failure is not on us."  Stuff like that.

So a lot can still happen, but at this moment, K-State's win over Oklahoma will hurt K-State's bowl game placement.

Hurt as in getting an opponent that overmatches the 'Cats?  Or hurt in the sense that it's seen as the 'Cats only quality win?

Hurt as in keeping OU out of the playoff (for now) and therefor bumping us down a rung on the Big 12 bowl ladder

KSU's win over OU, combined with a KSU and OU win Saturday would put KSU in a tie for 3rd in the conference.  That would seem to make the OU win beneficial as opposed to the cats finishing 6th.  Stings for the WV loss to keep us out of solo 3rd and potential, although unlikely, Alamo.

i think the extra loss would kind of make the whole thing a wash anyway.

They will be left out because they’re not very good.

I agree with MIR, but what I really want is for the Big 12 to tell our bowl partners that the conference gets to decide where team goes and not the bowls.  The Big 12 is the only conference that let's the bowls take whomever they want, in whatever order they want.  If the Alamo wants to take Texas instead of BU, OSU, or ISU (all ahead of UT in standings) they can.

If the bowls don't like it, then ditch them and find another.  There are PLENTY of bowl games out there.  This isn't the 90's where the purse size of the bowl game matters.  It's peanuts compared to our TV revenue now.
