Did not see anything posted on the first two pages, but Missouri is going to the Insight Bowl. According to Channel 9 tonight, the Insight passed on Nebraska and chose Missouri instead. I noticed Nebraska is playing the Holiday Bowl vs. Washington, while Mizzou gets Iowa in the Insight Bowl. Should be a good game....what do yall think? Did we screw Nebraska and get a better bowl game?

Did we screw Nebraska and get a better bowl game?Tough to say. I like that we're playing Iowa. Should be a good game. Not really a rivalry, but maybe some bragging rights for whoever wins.

Neither bowl is exactly prestigious, so I wouldn't say we screwed anyone. We're ranked higher and had the same record as Nebraska (going into the Big 12 Championship). They beat us handily though, so there is no doubt who the better team is.

Pairing Nebraska and Iowa might have made for an interesting prequel to the new Big 10.

Record doesn't show it, but I'm a little scared of Iowa. 5 losses, but by a total of something like 18 points.

meh Husker fans don't really care. & i dont think the Insight Bowl had much of a choice. The other alternative would have been Iowa VS another Big10 team. All we care about now is Shaun Watson moving on down the road.
Tigers will beat Iowa like a cheap drum

Iowa beat the living piss out of Mich St. They lost to Wisconsin by being to lazy to safe punt cover and was beating Ohio State the entire game until the fourth qtr. All three of those teams are in the top ten. With that said Iowa sucks at defending spread offenses, I would much rather Iowa face Nebraska

I'm saying they shouldn't be overlooked just because they have 5 losses or aren't ranked. They lost those 5 games by a combined 18 points and murdered Michigan State.

The talent is definitely there, they just couldn't come through in a couple key games.

This whole Bowl selection shit (mostly) is ass backwards.

Nebraska beats MU earlier in the year...not only beats them but clobbers them, not even making it close to what anyone would call a game. They're ranked higher than MU coming into this last weekend when they played in the Big12 champ game against OU (since they won the North division). Nebraska fans will have no problem selling tickets regardless of what venue they go to, they travel better than 99% of the college football fanbase.

But they get a better bowl than MU? - Doesn't make sense to me. I hate Nebraska football but this whole selection process is pretty ****ed up if you ask me.

And speaking of MU...They kill TXAM down in their house.....finish with a better record and are ranked higher in every poll, but TXAM gets the Cotton Bowl? Didn't MU sell out (their portion) the Cotton Bowl just a few seasons ago? And it's in Dallas....the venue isn't (too) far away from the fanbase region, about a day's worth of driving.


There DESPERATELY needs to be some post-season reform in college football. Here's what I would do:

FIRST - All conferences MUST have a conference championship game. I think it's stupid that some do have an extra game, and some don't. Doesn't make any sense to me. Either all conferences have one at the end, or everyone does away with it and there isn't one. Since the NCAA loves their money and TV ratings, I figured in my proposal that I'd make every conference have a conf champ game, and yes it would effect BCS rankings like it does now, so if you **** up in the conf champ game, it could cost ya.

BCS PLAYOFF SYSTEM
- TOP 8 BCS ranked teams
1 vs 8
2 vs 7
3 vs 6
4 vs 5

- Each of the 4 above games would play at the 4 main bowl sites...Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Sugar Bowl. The matchups would rotate so each venue would have a different seeding matchup every year (so that one bowl site wouldn't always get the #1 seed team...and so on).
EXAMPLE:
2011 2012 2013 2014
1 vs 8 ROSE ORANGE FIESTA SUGAR
2 vs 7 ORANGE FIESTA SUGAR ROSE
3 vs 6 FIESTA SUGAR ROSE ORANGE
4 vs 5 SUGAR ROSE ORANGE FIESTA

There would be a "Final 4". Like in Men's college hoops, the final four round and National Title game would all be at the same site and would rotate venues kinda like the Super Bowl does.

***BCS ranked teams #9-10 would ALWAYS play in the Cotton Bowl***

Then I think also the requirements to qualify for a Bowl game needs to be reformed as well. I think 6 games is not enough....most teams schedule 3-4 bullshit teams in their non-conference schedule and then only need to win 2-3 conference games to become "bowl eligible" What kind of ****ing bullshit is that? I think the requirement needs to be that you must have an overall winning record (which is usually 7+ Wins in a 12-game schedule) AND a conference record of at least .500 winning%. If you don't have BOTH of those requirements, guess what you're ****ed and are not bowl eligible. Independents like Notre Dame, Army, Navy would just have to go by their overall record which would have to also be +.500 winning%.

***If this was the case, these rules would make the "current" bowl eligible teams, not eligible***
BYU
UTEP
Louisville
Florida International
Georgia Tech
East Carolina
Illinois
K-State
South Florida
Clemson
Northwestern
Texas Tech
Georgia
Washington (wtf? - NEB gonna play a 6-win team in a bowl game this year?)
Kentucky (2-6 in conf, that's bullshit)
Middle Tennessee
Michigan
(There could be more, I just went through the bowl listings...may have forgotten a team or 2, it's late and I'm tired....you get the idea).

Missouri should have NO Problem with this years Iowa football team.
Iowa struggles mightly with Missouri's style of offense. Iowa should be on a 4 game losing streak going into this bowl game. Iowa's not gotten the senior leadership Iowa fans expected. Iowa's been a HUGE disapointment.

Missouri should win by double digits.

Mizzou fans be prepared to see Stanzi to DJK ALL DAY LONG. Stanzi will not end his Iowa career on a L. Mizzou is a very respectable opponent, but i would have rather played Nebraska. I will be looking forward to this game, should be a good one.

Keeler: Insight Bowl officials miss opportunity
Updated 11:02 pm

December 5, 2010

It was so close, you could already smell the hate. The hate, the corn and the bratwursts, all sizzling on a sun-kissed grill. Iowa versus Nebraska in the Insight Bowl. And why the heck not?




Two Midwestern giants. Two massive fan bases that are mirror images of the other — fervent and loyal travelers, loud and proud partiers. They wouldn’t have been able to print tickets fast enough. The Blackshirts on one side, The Swarm on the other? Greater Phoenix would’ve run out of beer. To any bean-counter worth his or her salt, Iowa-Nebraska sounded like pure gold.

So on Sunday night, when the curtain finally came up, the men in the pastel blazers gave you Iowa and — Missouri.

“It was a really, really difficult decision for our selection committee,” Insight Bowl spokesman Andy Bagnato explained after the Hawkeyes-Tigers game was announced. “ “In this case, we selected the highest-rated available team to us, which was Missouri. We’ve never had a Bowl Championship Series-eligible team in the Insight Bowl.”

The Tigers are ranked No. 12 in the BCS standings. The Cornhuskers are 18th. Feel free to scream at anytime.

“For us, the difference between No. 12 and (18) was significant,” Bagnato continued. “And that didn’t make it any easier, but that was a big part of that decision.”
Kind of apropos, isn’t it? A season that felt like one giant letdown gets a bowl game that sits like one, too.

For their troubles, Nebraska (10-3) wound up with a berth in the Holiday Bowl. Which sounds like a great idea, until you see that it means a rematch with Washington (6-6), which it’s already played this season — and already beaten by 35 points.

Let the conspiracy theories begin. Why would the Fiesta/Insight folks, with the Hawkeyes already in hand, pass on the Cornhuskers? When you have a chance to fill Sun Devil Stadium with two of the best-traveling fan bases in college football, logic says you take it. Right?

Unless some other forces other than capitalism were in play here. Did Big 12 officials fear that a Hawkeye-Husker game would be nothing more than a Big Ten infomercial? Was it a designed, farewell kick in the pants to the Big Red as they walk out the door for the last time as member? Was it Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe’s final act of revenge?

“Bowls are ultimately responsible for their own match-ups,” Bagnato countered, “not the conferences or the schools.”

Fine, but this still reeks of an opportunity missed. Despite a late kickoff (9 p.m. Midwest time on a Tuesday night), everyone with a pulse would’ve been tuned in to catch at least a part of Iowa-Nebraska. On the sexy scale, it would’ve been a 9 out of 10. Iowa-Missouri, while promising plenty of fireworks, rates about a 5.6.

Despite a mere 4-hour drive that separates the two campuses, this is the first time the programs have met on a football field since 1910. Once fierce rivals, they rarely run in the same circles. Especially after 2005, when the Tigers pulled out of a multi-game football contract with the Hawkeyes — “intelligent scheduling,” Tigers coach Gary Pinkel called it — that left then-athletic director Bob Bowlsby scrambling for non-conference replacements.

They can’t duck this one. You just wonder if disgruntled Iowa fans will.

After going 11-2 last year and finishing #7 with an Orange Bowl win expectations for this year's team were higher than 7-5. We came into the year fielding what many of us thought was one of our better teams in years and we couldn't close the deal on winnable games.

This team has definitely been a disappointment. The defense really dropped off from dominating to average as the season progressed. They've got a very very talented Dline that seemed to start getting worn out. Pre-season, the RB depth was looking phenomenal, and by the time the leaves turned, the Hawks were trotting out 4-5th stringers and freshmen.

That said, Stanzi is pretty much Matt Cassel, the o-line is decent and the WRs are very good. If the Defense can use the next month to solve the spread....

I really like this pairing and have wanted the Hawks to play Mizzou for the last few years...IT should be a natural rivalry and non-conf game imo.

Good luck, but I hope the Hawks beat the Tiggers so bad that fraz prolapses.

For the Hawk fans...

Phoenix Iowa Club Hawkeyes,

As you all know, the Iowa Hawkeyes are coming down to the Valley of the Sun later this month for the Insight Bowl. They will play the 10-2 Missouri Tigers, out of the Big Twelve conference. It is extremely important to show our support and get to the game so the University of Iowa can continue to have the reputation of having some of the best fans in the nation! We want to sell the stadium out so all bowl committees will take notice for future years. I wanted to share everything that I know so far and I will continue to send out emails, post info on the facebook page, and on our website, www.PhoenixIowaClub.com.

Bowl Tickets

If you’re interested in going to the game, I would suggest getting your tickets through the University of Iowa. They still have a good amount of tickets left and this year you can choose between 3 different prices. Lower level sections= $64, Upper Level (low)=$37, Upper Level (high)= $22. You can find out all the information and order tickets at Insight Bowl Tickets

Hotel Group Rates

A couple hotels have contacted me about offering a group rate for Hawkeye fans. If you have friends or family coming to town and need to find a hotel, here are a couple places to check out:

4 star:

Sheraton Crescent Phoenix
2620 West Dunlap Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85021
(602) 943-8200

4 star hotel for a great rate, the Phoenix Sheraton Crescent will do a group rate for Hawkeye fans. $79 (normally $119) plus continental breakfast, as well as free shuttles to the light rail. The light rail can then be taken straight to the stadium/ASU campus area. The hotel is right off the I-17 about 10 minutes north of Sky-Harbor Airport. Just call and say you want the Iowa Hawkeye group rate.

Hawkeye Huddle & Game Day Tailgate
The Hawkeye Huddle and Game Day tailgate information should be available in the next couple days and we will make sure to email it out to everyone, as well as blast it on our website and our facebook page.

you mean the game that the coaches made at least 3 mental errors to lose the game...including telling Stanzi to call a timeout when he was doing the correct thing by rushing the team to the line to clock the ball to save the timeout?

On that last pass to the running back, if the back goes out of bounds we are in position for a 50 yard FG or so...but what does he do? Turn his hips upfield as soon as he gets the ball and tries to get extra yards.

Kid sint perfect, he has warts, but to act like his clutch performance is a reason to be comfortable playing against him is laughable.

Again, look up how he has played in crunch time in his bowl games.

Long touchdown passes with less than a minute to win bowl games is what he has done in more than one...when his team was losing and he needed to make a play to win, he did it.

Aaron Green choose Nebraska over Texas

Tyler Moore picked Neb over Florida

Bubba Starling picked Nebraska over Alabama

Those are just a few examples. If Pelinis antics hurt the school so much why haven't players decommitted?


Green's brother already plays for Nebraska. I'm sure that had nothing to do with his decision, though...

Tyler Moore is a legacy kid. Would have been a major upset for him to go anywhere other than Nebraska.

Bubba Starling is going to play professional baseball, but he'll make your recruiting rankings look good at least.

Nebraska has a strong recruiting classes, but there are better kids to highlight than those three.

You will find out soon enough.

But, as I stated previously, I cant really address that post due to not having enough knowledge of the specific situation. Im sure there are reasons, but at the end you have a valid point.

I like our offense's matchup against Iowa's defense. The Hawkeyes have struggled with spread offenses over the past few years, especially Northwestern.

Missouri's spread is quite similar to Northwestern's, and the Tigers have more skill talent, a better QB and a better OL.

That first touchdown was on a play fake which was setup by the first few drives of them pounding the ball with Murray. OU ran the ball 30 times my whole point is you have to have some commitment to the run when playing good defenses.

Nebraska also has top notch corners who run four and five deep. Most of the Nebraska sacks in that game were coverage sacks, especially early. Nebraska has aligned its defense to defend the spread and runs dime the entire game against Missouri.

Is Iowa going to do that? Or is it going to stick to the 43 defense against the spread, like it has tried in the past?

If Iowa does do that, does it have the depth at CB to keep its guys fresh there? Does it have hybrid S/LB who can run with slot WRs AND play like LBs against the run?

The only time Missouri was inside the 10 against Nebraska, it ran the ball on three straight plays: a qb sneak out of the jumbo package, a rb dive out of the jumbo package, and a zone read out of the spread.

And Mizzou was never in the red zone with a chance to tie the game. Best it could have done at any point was cut it to 24-21.
